Good food!!Unfortunately, chickpea side is never full..... even when ordering extra, they always skimp. Small restaurant. Limited parking.But we love ordering here!

For a no frills, meat experience, you are unlikely to be disappointed. This is more a take away place. Even so, we had a sit down and were delighted with a very attentive and helpful staff.We had the Qaboli palao—outstanding lamb shank, tender, on a bed of rice with carrots and raisins. And the spicy Chapali kebab—Meat patty with spices mixed. And sides that come with the mains— lentil soup (so much that it could be a whole dish on its own) and chick peas.The skewers are done slightly differently then your usual kubideh (persian version).About average for the beef and chicken kabob combo that you might find at another kabob place.

Excellent meal. Cooked to perfection. Kebabs come with side (got stewed chickpeas) and bread. Very generous portions.

A review for the lamb kebab- I love these. They did an amazing job removing all the unchewable tissues/tendons. Very happy to finally find a place that just has delicious big bites of meat!

Ordered the 4 person combo ($60 with tax). Served a party of 6 comfortably so good value. Cooked well and good quality meet. Nice place for middle eastern food

worst restaurant in Arlington. They have mice.

Fast, delicious and freshly prepared food! They use no preservatives and make it all in house. Lovely owner, who donates food and time to our community. Certainly, a great local restaurant to support!

I've done take out, dine in, cater, all of it is excellent. Deliciously consistent everytime and impeccable service everytime. Have even allowed us to pray in the back several times. My entire family loves this place.


We are recent transplants to NorthernVirginia and Arlington Kabob is now our favorite spot for take out. 11/10. All combos are fantastic. The quabli is our choice - both chicken and lamb are fabulous. Sides are all great. Like good enough as to where my partners has ordered it two days in a row. Get interested.

Salaams! Truly delectable Afghani fare prepared fresh upon order, quickly, while not failing to be attentive to the particulars of the customers tasteful desires -- and at a price-point that leaves other seasoned restauranteurs scratching their heads wondering how the great cuisine could possibly turn a profit.**Owner Sayeed is eager to please all customers old & new, and manages this affable Arlington eatery impeccably, so make sure to note to him personally any questions or concerns you may have.**I have brought associates, contemporaries, family members, and other friends visiting DC from around the world, and each one is served as a Special Guest (just as you and your family will be!) every time. Great veggie options for me in addition to Halal meats which my wife & teen children prefer, usually the lamb shank or cops for with lentils, rice, and salad. Several savory koftes to choose from, of course, and always well cooked. The delish hummous & bread to start, with crisp sweet baklava to finish at the table or to go, and the meal is complete. Water and tea gratis always available and plentiful, as well as gourmet drinks (not at all overpriced) in the cooler. Sit inside by the window, or outside with friends at the available tables... and allow yourself to be treated like Afghani royalty!

I meant to go to Courthouse kabob, but we accidentally ended up here. It was my first time here, the food is delicious, and the employees are friendly. I hadn't seen my friend for so long, and we didn't realize the place was closing/closed. The manager came to us and kindly kicked us from the restaurant.If I'm around the area, I will visit this place again.

Incredible food. I got the combo for four people and it was so much food and all great quality. Got chickpeas and a side salad as sides. Quick service and the woman working was very helpful when I called. Will order again!


Absolutely ELITE place. Portions, pricing, and most of all the quality and taste is off the chain. I'm essentially a kabob addict and frequent here. The kobideh is next level. Naan is really good. Exceptional service and owner who's always super kind. Love it here!
