As another reviewer said, the store front doesn't look like much, but the food is very good. I've had the shrimp kabob and chicken kabob, and both were delicious. The Greek salad is fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the two sides as well -- the yoghurt with cucumber and the freshly made hummus. The service was quick. The only reason... More

There aren't enough falafel restaurants around, so i was excited to find this place. The food is great and the restaurant is pretty cool inside. They also do takeout which is convenient.

Every time I come here the food leaves me wanting more. So far I've tried a couple of the kabobs and they are fantastic - perfectly seasoned and cooked. The dipping sauces you get with the lunch special compliment the meat well - tried the Mirza Ghasemi for the first time today and liked ti so much I'm searching for... More

It may not have the most attractive store-front in a little strip mall, but it is a pleasant surprise when you step inside. They offer an exciting menu of many different kabob options - and everything that I have tasted has been very good. They offer take-out as well as table service. With the table service comes a really nice... More

If you're hungry, or wish to share a dish, or have leftovers for the next day, you've found a great little place in Nora's Kabob. It's a small place with a big dinner menu of kabob options, and great service. Prices are reasonable. Had the Chicken - Koobideh Kabob combination, with salad and rice, and couldn't finish it (that's rare... More

Good food; well prepared. Might do well to fix up the place, perhaps tablecloths, since they want to be less a carryout and more a sit down joint. Apparently they have music. Must be another room we did not see, as the space seems to small for music. Key thought is the food, which is quite good.

I've dined here several times, most recently in Dec 2013, and have always found the walk-up service very friendly and the food quite tasty. But I'm put off by the fact that the staff is very slow to clear tables. It's not unusual to find oneself seated next to a table full of dirty dishes & food scraps.

Nora's is in an indistinct strip shopping center right on rte 40; not sure why the pictures above are even shown. Noura is not Nora's. If you live in the area of Burtonsville and Columbia, MD, and have eaten at Maiwand Kabob or Mimi's Kabob, Nora's will disappoint if you are expecting the wonderful piquant spices from the other places....

I've eaten at Nora's twice, once for a quick lunch - falafel, and another time for dinner with friends -dolmades & shrimp kebabs. The portions are enormous, and the food is delicious. I think the falafel, gyros, and meze are more flavorful than the kebabs, but the kebabs are good as far as kebabs go. The atmosphere is great, and... More

The kabobs at Nora's are OK, but I have certainly had better kabobs. My biggest issue was with the "tenderloin" kabob, which seriously lacked tenderness (it was tough and chewy). A good "Barg" kabob melts in your mouth because first it is the highest quality meat and second it has been marinated correctly, I though this one was neither.
