“Great taste, good quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Had chicken wrapped with ground beef kabob. Excellent flavor. Plenty for two people. Free hot tea. Had to wait forever, due to some huge orders in front of us. It was worth the wait. Very noisy, crowded.

“Good food, okay atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

I took my two boys to Darband ...had beef, chicken and lamb shiskabobs and rice. The food was good, but not exceptional. The atmosphere was okay ...plastic forks, cheap napkins and plastic plates. Overall the place was clean, but not good enough to return given that Fadi's is about a mile away.

“My Favorite Restaurant in Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

The food here is always cooked to perfection. I have never had a bad experience. Every time I have guests in town, I make sure to take them to Darband. There is nothing negative to say. Great service and fantastic food!

“Best and cheapest kabob in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010

Lived in Turkey for 23 years and now in Houston I strongly believe Darband has the best and cheapest kabob in Texas. Don't miss it if you are in Houston.
