“Best Hummus Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a chain throughout the MIddle East, but don't let that fool you! I have lived in the Middle East for awhile, and this is by far the best hummus I have had! In addition, all the other menu items are very authentic. I do agree that it is a bit pricey, but the food really is great and fast!

“Lebanese Grill and Specialties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Kababji offers authentic Lebanese grill and mezzes. Not to confuse you can not compare to any Lebanese fast food diner as it offers authentic Lebanese food taste and they source the best food ingredients. If you are willing to compromise quality for quantity, Kababji might not be the best place to go to as the portions are small but you'll be missing the real food

“Not Very Honest”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

The food here is relatively good. However, it is expensive considering the amount of food you get. You can pay the same amount as the top notch Lebanese restaurants. Locations are conveniently located and relatively clean.

On the down side, service and honesty is relatively poor. Waiter will bring you a small plate of vegetables and then charge you for it, even though you did not order it. Same applies for bottles of water. Things are forgotten in take out orders.

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Kabab-ji is a good place to have a lebanese sandwich.
its a little bit more expensive than other snacks, but still a reliable place to eat.

“Average”

Don't understand why this is hyped. Food was plain and expensive. Go to Barbars or Bliss House. Both amazing but have no seats.
