I don't understand how this place gets any good reviews. Maybe they are paid for? The food was awful, so bad that I didn't even want to touch it after the first bite. So did my guests. We are all Persian so we know something about Persian food. The rice tasted as though it was done a few days before... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you come inside it's very nice! The service was great! The food was awesome! Hookha was great also......It couldn't hurt if they did a little updating were you do the hookha......great place to hang with friends or just for a date! Will definitely be coming back :-)

Great food and great service by wonderful people. We try to go once a week and have never been disappointed. The kabobs are wonderful. The rice amazing. The Persian ice cream!! It is easy to pass by on Independence Ave but give it a try. Our favorite waitress makes us feel like she/they are happy to see us. Prices are... More

Living in South Carolina, there aren't too many Persian restaurants we get to enjoy. But on a weekend excursion to Charlotte, NC we looked up Persian restaurants for lunch just so I could get a little taste of home (I'm Persian after all). This place is fantastic! Atmosphere and service were excellent! Most importantly the kabob was awesome! I had... More

My wife grew up in Iran and knows Persian food, which is virtually unknown in the US, even in New York where we live. Even NYC only has about 5 Persian restaurants (try Ravagh or Persopoles). I enjoyed the food, but what was unique about this restaurant was the atmosphere. They have pictures on the walls from pre-revolutionary Iran, and... More

I think people are intimidated to go here because of the location. I tried it, was very pleased. Excellent, attentive server who was knowledgable about the menu. Took time to explain everything and make recos.

Kabob House may not be the cheapest but it has authenticity. That is not easy to find in Charlotte.....I am talking about Mid east Food.
