“Great Place or a Great Meal and Dirt Cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Five of us had a great mideastern dinner here and the bill including drinks with tip was around $100. We walked out stuffed.

The chicken and beef kabobs were top-notch and the Ash-E-Reshteh soup was excellent.

Highly recommend. I'll go back in a second.

“loved chicken thigh kabob...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had dinner at Kabob Bazaar last week and it was delicious. I had one lamb kabob and one chicken thigh kabob.....I loved that they offered a thigh kabob....seems like everywhere you go it is always a chicken breast and only occasionally a half of a chicken.....both were very good but the chicken was the best....maybe the best chicken I have had in a restaurant. The rice was tdf....so good. And our waiter was really nice and there when you wanted him to be there. My husband had a salmon kabob which was cooked just right....not over done.....and our daughter had a chicken breast kabob and lamb kabob. Very good bread too. We'll be back!

“Second time round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Yesterday was our second visit to Kabob Bazaar. Both times have been for lunch and we've come away very happy. The Kabobs are delicious and we had enough to get two meals out of their portions. My husband had the lamb soltani and I had the chicken soltani. Both were succulent, cooked to perfection, served with rice. I love the yogurt/mint sauce with kabobs and there was plenty left over from the salad/bread appetizer that comes with a meal. That's a nice touch and much appreciated but beware of eating too much: entree portions are very generous. I also had a hot Persian Tea which was equally delicious. We have quite a few Persian/Iranian restaurants in our area but this is definitely the best. The service is usually impeccable, although yesterday our waiter made us feel a little bashful that a)we were using a coupon and b) it was really only valid for dinner (note to self to read the small print). He let us get away with it but a little condescendingly. Why do restaurants offer Groupons/coupons if they make patrons feel awkward? We're giving full marks as apart from the comment above, we love coming to this restaurant.

“Very good food !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor, we had dinner, the staff was really good and the food was very good too !! But I'm not sure if the restaurant deserves the first place in the area !!

“Delicious Food & Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We found this place while walking to rent a car at Enterprise Rent A Car which is across the street. The food, service, and courtesy of staff exceeded our expectations. I had the lamb shish kabab and my wife had the vegetable shish kabab. After taking our order the waiter brought us a basket of pita bread, yogurt spread and a plate of assorted greens. Neither of us were familiar with Iranian food and asked the waiter what Iranians drank with meals. He brought us a sample of a drink called Doogh (homemade yogurt based drink). I liked it and ordered a glass. We finished the meal with Iranian ice cream which is made at the restaurant, delicious! This place is hard to beat for the quality of the food and the price. Also, the staff is very courteous.
