I've often had the falafel from the Moby Dick in DC but never tried anything else until my husband and I stopped here to eat after a movie. I adore baba ganoush and so I enjoyed trying the slightly different Persian version that Moby Dick...More

Food quality is very good and consistent. My favorite is chicken kabob. Next to the best pizza place around, Pomodoro's, and across from the movie theater.

We go here all the time. Their food is fantastic. The lamb kabobs are so very tasty. The butter on the rice makes you want to eat every last grain. Everything is delicious there. I have never been disappointed.
