If we lived here we'd come to this place often. It's seriously good, spicy, Kashmiri food. I didn't say Pakistani or Indian food on purpose; when I asked the owner if he's Indian or Pakistani he was quick to say he's from Kashmir. And seeing as that area of the world is disputed I'm calling it Kashmiri food here too.... More

Besides Pakistanis Kabobs and curries, the steak and cheese sandwich is awesome. It comes with double fried French Fries. I am a regular at this place for many years. The restaurant offers free parking which is a premium in Clarendon. The service is prompt and prices are reasonable.

This is the type of hole in the wall carryout where the owner is behind the counter everyday and greets you whenever you come in. They have a great variety of both traditional Pakistani food and American grill favorites on the menu. The place is nothing to write home about in terms of looks, but it offers tasty food at...

The food here is always very good, and you get so much for the price. My husband and I come often and share a meal for $10. So delicious!

East West Grill is a long time citizen of Clarendon and adds a dose of shabby homeyness to what can be a glossy population of local and national chains. The food is very good. I live close by and visit this restaurant at least once a month.

I've been eating here regularly for several years, and I'm always pleased with the food. Kabobs are good, and the daily specials range from okay to terrific. The biryani is a bit disappointing, but other specials have been fine or better. Bread is always fresh, hot, and good. Side dishes are good, pretty standard for kabob places. Lots of food... More

Very good food. Family owned. Middle-east fresh food. Take a look at the menu posted on the wall, order at the counter. Items may be substituted. The Naan bread is baked when you ordered...and it is terrific. This is the casual restaurant when you are hungry and in a hurry. Vegetarians will be happy, too. I return time after time.

At the price point, it's hard to beat - it gets 4 starts based on that, not compared to every restaurant I've been to. The daily specials offer a good amount of food and if you want to add a kabob, the owner usually charges me a nominal amount and doesn't make me order an entire order of kabobs. Yes,... More

Downtown Clarendon, we'd planned to go to the Cheesecake factory for our dinner, but we found that there were a lot of choice around. We decided to go to East West Gril and we were not disappointed. The food was good, I ordered lamb kebab and it came with a lot of sides (rice, 2 vegetable curry, bread). The bread... More

My boyfriend and I always stay with a friend in Clarendon when we visit DC. He happens to be Pakistani and recommended this place to us. It's so yummy and they give you enough food to count as lunch and dinner!
