Foursquare Tips

  • Love their rice and kabob, especially the beef and the lamb. Parking usually sucks though but then that's a DC tradition - especially in Georgetown. ::shrugs::
  • Ask for 'tahdeeg'- the crisp rice from the bottom of the pot!
  • By far the best fast food kabob in the area. Only thing, no salmon kabob nor is Persian Koresh served. Both can be found at Shamshiry along with the best tadek you've ever tasted!
  • There was a hair in my rice. I asked the staff to give me a new rice cause of that and they exchanged it without apologizing for the hair in my food, they act like that happens pretty often. SO GROSS!
  • Swordfish and chicken kabob combo rocks! (not on menu)
  • Great gyro sandwich. Large portions, cheap prices
  • Kabob E-Barreh is great! Quite authentic persian food, my fav in Georgetown!
  • nothing more than bland chicken and expensive pita bread sandwiches
  • Moby Dick's is delicious as long as you don't go to this one. They won't even give you extra yogurt sauce without trying to charge you for it!
  • The lamb and chicken kabobs are solid options but expect to want a nap afterwards (read-filling). The rice isn't super seasoned though.
  • All combos are great. Cheap, fast, and tasty! Grab it to go, walk south and eat by the Potomac! ;)
  • Yes it's fast food, but I have trouble finding better kabob in the area at any price or fanciness level. Hummus and rice are notably awesome.
  • Get the hummus. It's damn good.
  • Get the lamb platter, heavily sprinkle your rice with that seasoning next to the salt.
  • Authentic, delicious kabobs. Almost as good as the ones you get in the Middle East.
  • Great food comes cheap. Can't find anything like this in Georgetown
  • Try the dick, it's awesome!
  • Probably the healthiest choice for take-out in Georgetown.
  • Get the swordfish and chicken combo, it's not on the menu but they'll hook you up.
  • Bring patience . They take forever!
