The taste Persia in Memphis

This place is worth the drive from anywhere in the area. Reasonably priced, tasty food and friendly service. I am partial to the gyros and fries, but you can't go wrong on other dishes.

We have been going to Kabob International for several years. The owners are always readily available if not hosting our table. They have always been so kind and welcoming, just like family! The food is all homemade and ridiculously delicious. She makes the best tzaziki I have ever had, and the gyro itself is worth a drive across town for.... More

I have been eating here since they opened the doors. It was my first experience with Persian food. It was love at first taste! I have tried almost everything on the menu and all are great. Since trying Kabob International I have tried every other place in town in this price range, but they do not measure up.

My wife and I go here often for lunch. The food is always excellent and service is good. Their brewed hot tea is their own recipe and very good. I also love their spiced fries. Gyros are excellent. Hummus and pita scrumptious.

I enjoy all the food at kebab international. Lamb and beef shawarma are the best and the family that runs it are super thoughtful. Treat yourself to great food!

Wow! My mouth is watering as I remember the chicken and lamb gyro with yellow sauce. It was very tasty and the portion size was good! My only suggestion is to get the lamb only gyro because the meat was tender and tastier than the chicken or the hamburger beef my husband had. We are planning to go back and... More

Our 1st visit for dinner. I had the Beef Slovaki(kabob) salad and my husband the Lamb Gyros platter. the Gyros platter was meat served over rice and a small side of salad. Simple vinaigrette on the salad similar to Olive Garden's and the chunks of beef were tender and tasty. No appetizers but were offered a small dish of Tzaziki... More

My husband and I both had kabobs in pitas! They were excellent. I had the lamb and beef combo. My husband had the beef and lamb. Next time we both would just get the lamb. It was the tastiest. We highly recommend this hidden gem! We can't wait to go back on a wed or Friday for the buffet.ask for... More
