“Fantastic lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

Good value for great kebobs (try the salmon kebob). Get a nice glass of hot tea, and enjoy the warm bread and mint leaves and greens before your meal is ready. Lots of locals. Simple but charming atmosphere.

“Excellent food and service - I'll be coming back.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Located right next to the Clarendon Metro stop on the Orange line, this was a nice find in an area that has a hodge-podge of choices for ethnic cuisine. I was cold outside so stopped by for lunch and had one of the specials - "Ash e Anaar" which is a soup made of split peas, rice, assorted herbs and meatballs. The soup is flavored with pomegranate sauce and spices. On the side I had freshly baked pita bread from their clay oven and hummus. Everything was delicious. Total for the bill was $11.17 (minus tip). This middle-eastern "soup and sandwhich" hit the spot and the rest of the guests seemed to be enjoying their lunches as much as I did. I'll certainly be back.

We tried kabob and dizi and baghali polo, all were awesome. It has a calm and friendly environment. The prices were reasonable too.

“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011 via mobile

Kabob Bazaar serves the best Persian food in DC; and the atmosphere is genuine. If you want bland chain food, go somewhere else. KB is the real thing
