“Best kabobs in Arlington - for take out”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Ravi does the best kabobs in Arlington. Have been getting take out here for years - just had some tonight - and it is still great. The atmosphere in the restaurant is not fantastic, but if you are in the neighborhood and want take out just call them and order. The menu is online. They'll give you an order number and tell you it will be ready in 10 to 15 minutes. When you get there, tell them your number, tell them you want chick peas (do not miss the chick peas) and salad and take your order home.

If you want delivery I recommend Afghan Khabob House in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington - you can find them online too. I think they are the second best kabobs in Arlington, but they deliver which Ravi does not.

“Eating in technicolor.”
Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

This kabob is the best I've had in the states. Period. The place is small. Cheap decor, but is by far like eating in technicolor for the tastebuds. The chickpeas are AMAZING. The naan is baked perfectly, the boneless chicken with chickpeas will make you want to cry its so good.

“Best Kabob House in DC area.”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

This is THE kabob house of DC. It's kinda spicy and very, very flavorful. It doesn't look like much, but the number of taxis in the lot tell you the quality of the food. Spectacular.

“Rate it 3 for atmosphere, 10 for food”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Strip mall hole-in-the-wall with a few tables (equivalent of dining out at your nearest Subway). Pakistani co-worker praised it as the best Pakistani food on the east coast; while I'm not qualified to make that judgment myself, I'm not inclined to disagree with her. Very animal-protein heavy: kabobs of various meats plus karhai (kind of a stir-fried wok dish). Will go back next time I'm in the neighborhood. There's a Ravi Kabob #2 under same/related management in another strip mall across the street.
