This is a decently priced and good service restaurant. If you are looking for a quite evening with family. The food is decently priced but drinks are bit pricey.

After dropping our daughter off nearby we realized we were starving. Someone had mentioned this little place to us so we set out looking for it. WARNING - iphone maps took us to the COMPLETELY wrong place when we typed in the address. So glad we called to get directions. Lovely place, lovely owner, lovely food. The decor is very... More

This is a lovely place tucked away in an unassuming strip mall. The inside is clean, modern and sleek looking. With a very clam and quite vibe. The food was first rate across the board. I found it a bit expensive but you do pay for quality and this place was that. Larger portions for the price especially on the... More

I've now been to Mazador several times & never been disappointed. The owners are originally from Kabul &, having been to Afghanistan many times, I can attest to the authenticity and quality of this place. If a restaurant named "kabob" makes you think of a very basic place you'll be pleasantly surprised. Mazador is far more & the food is... More

Excellent Afghan and middle eastern food. The owner. host/waiter is very friendly and helpful in explaining the menu. The Lamb shank dishes are wonderful - very soft meat! The decor is pleasing, and is nicer than you would expect in a shopping center. Dan and Esther Levitan

The first thing you notice about this restaurant is the atmosphere (I've included a photo). You step into Mazadar from a small, not particularly attractive strip mall and are immediately transported into the Middle East. There's a fountain in the middle of the room, and sofa style seating around the edges of this tastefully decorated room. The many soft surfaces... More

We've been here several times and have always ordered something different so we haven't settled on a favorite dish. But we have yet to be disappointed with any of the appetizers or main dishes that we've ordered. And the warm, complimentary bread that they serve is incredible. That's why we never have room for dessert. The service, too, has always... More

Mazadar Kabob sits in a pleasant strip mall in suburban Virginia and the exterior gives no clues to the delights inside. This beautifully decorated restaurant features a long, mosaic trough with a center bubbling fountain, brass lanterns, sculptural wall art, curving sofas with gorgeous pillows, and tables and chairs that transport you well beyond Fairfax. The service is excellent and... More
