This place is a "find" It's a 4-5 blocks from the Crystal City metro, within 2-3 blocks of MANY Crystal City area hotels. I asked the Holiday Inn, where I was staying, to recommend a good alternative to chain restaurants. They wisely recommended this place.
Food is extremely tasty. One can get 1 kabob and salad for about $8. I had two kabobs, flat bread, chickpees, rice & salad for $16.99.
This is not a fancy place. Nice pictures of Pakistan on the walls. Al Jazera (sp) playing which makes for an interesting thing to watch during a meal, if you feel like it.
Many local people come here. Very good service. They also have a buffet which looks great, served from 10AM - 5 PM. No deserts. Rated by Zagat.
This is the kind of place many of us seek - a local family owned, really well done restaurant. Strongly recommended if you like this kind of food.
