“Hidden Treasure in this Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

A great Mediterranean buffet.. flavorful smokey chicken, basmati rice with potatoes, OKRA and TOMATOES...yum. Not fancy, but awesome hearty food, Sodas lukewarm even out of the refrigerator. Ask for Ice. Agree with AL..it does look like a cafeteria, but who cares!

“Good one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We eat in a lot of kabob restaurants. This one is an upgraded hole in the wall that we found a few years ago and hadn't been to for a while. Today's visit found the place with lovely airconditioning and a slightly better interior.

“Excellent food, no frills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Looks like a cafeteria, but the taste is superb. Just about everything on the menu is good. Worth the wait if there is a line.

“Good for its class. Pay attention to the cabbies!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We eat in a lot of kabob restaurants. This one is an upgraded hole in the wall that we found a few years ago and hadn't been to for a while. Today's visit found the place with lovely airconditioning and a slightly better interior. The food here has always been good. Bread is at the upper end of the range; kabobs are good; veggies are average, as is the salad. It can be a bit slow here, but that's because it's all done to order. Somewhat bigger menu than most. Best sign is the number of ethnic cab drivers who eat here. I wouldn't drive across town to eat here, but if you are nearby, stop in. And if you don't like the order-at-a-counter routine, there's a sit down restaurant run by the same people a few doors down. Remarkably, open 24 hours.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This place is overrated. We heard, through friends, how great the food is at Kabob Palace. It was ok for me.
The best dish that we had was the chapeli kabob. The chicken kabob was ok. The lamb chops were undercooked.
Overall just ok.
