Foursquare Tips

  • Need to try this place for lunch! I've heard great things...
  • Delicious food that's open late on the weekends making it a perfect after drinking spot. Go for the Moby's Combo I, kubideh (ground beef) and chenjeh (filet) kabob on top of aromatic saffron rice.
  • Ask for 'tahdeeg'- the crisp rice from the bottom of the pot!
  • Order the kubideh with rice - hamburger on a stick!
  • It's not actually on Conn. Ave NW. Go around the corner, it's across the street from 1814 N St NW.
  • Phenomenal food. Get the spicy ground chicken kabob platter or Moby's Combo II.
  • If you're in the neighborhood and craving a good salad the kabob e joojeh with salad is delicious
  • I was in town for 4 days, went to Moby Dick House of Kabob two times..that tells you something! Best Iranian food I had in the US, the portion is good for two, unless you're really hungry or homesick!
  • Try the yogurt soda - you might like it
  • Great spot for lunch.
  • The Kabob-E-Barreh is so delicious here..
  • Some of the best Persian food in DC. Staff was super nice too and gave my little cousin a toy
  • They ran out of rice!!!
  • An absolute must for anyone working in the area. Sandwiches are huge. No need for a platter. Chicken joojeh is my favorite!
  • Try the combo number 2.
  • Always great food and friendly staff
  • Get the platter card. Buy 9 and get one free
  • Call in your order ahead of time for lunch. You can skip the entire line!
  • Kabob e Joojeh ftw!
