This is a nice place with some healthy food vegetarian plates as well as the chicken and beef kabobs. With some other ethnic choices in Kingstowne, this is a very good one. I had the chicken kabob with rice and stewed tomato. The chicken was nicely done, the rice was less zesty than I might have thought and the stewed... More

This place has great food, the best kabobs ever. The place is clean and ok for sitting. Is not a fancy place but it is accommodating to eating with families. The food is the best kabob I had found so far on Virginia. Prices are good too. Lots of food in one dish. Plenty of variety in the menu. Love... More

The only thing I order from this location is the chicken kabob and rice. Oh my God the rice melts in your mouth, and the rice has zesty taste to it which I love. Would recommend this place.

I ordered the chicken. It was tasty but did not blow me away. The restaurant is clean and cute. Counter service was fine. A nice lunch.

Simple setting, counter service, but some great food. I love their Kubedeh. Lots of food - usually enough for lunch the next day.

Fell in love with Moby Dick in DC, and was thrilled to find an outlet nearby when we moved to the suburbs. Great hummus, great grilled chicken, a great DC staple successfully moved out to the suburbs.

The seating isn't that impressive but then it's in kingstowne shopping centre, has regal cinema next to it and a lot of other spots to eat and shop and enjoy, plus its halal food with yummy kabab and chicken and you will enjoy the food a lot, must visit and taste it,

This was my first experience with Middle Eastern food, and it's still my go-to! It is always pretty clean, and food is always made fresh instead of waiting under a heat lamp. It's also right next to the movie theater, so it's a good pre-movie supper place.

Kabob comes in many varieties. Mine came today as a swordfish with long rice with a hint of saffron, salad, slice of tomato, cubic of feta and a half of lemon. I started coming to this place once in a while alternating swordfish and salmon kabobs. Food is always fresh, has unmistaken Middle Eastern flavors and well Americanized. It is... More
