Saffron Garden Mediterranean Grill (3/5)

I’m a big fan of Persian food. Of course, I am a big fan of a lot of food, but nothing seems more satisfying to me than good kabab, saffron rice and bread that’s done just right. On my first and only… (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

UPDATE: This place is out of business 🙁

Hungry Tiger (4/5)

It’s like McDonalds of Kabob… only GOOD. Apparently, the owner is no stranger to the restaurant business–and it shows. If you like the food at Moby Dick, you will love this place. This was my first visit, so I have not sampled much of the menu, but I tried some of the items my friends had as well and can tell you the kubideh is first rate, the chicken, perfectly marinated and delicious and the lamb is absolutely spectacularly seasoned, tender and mouthwatering. I want more for breakfast as I write this! The place looks a little like a fast food joint. The location is great if you are in or around Tenley. I happened to get a parking spot during evening rush hour directly in front, as did two friends. There’s also ice cream. Go for the mango. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

Reston Kabob (4/5)

It’s not bad for Reston (the land of planned community and every franchise known to the suburban hero) but certainly does not rank 5 stars in any area. Ordering is crowded at a small counter and rushed and you stand in line directly in front of the bottled drinks, forks and napkins, etc. as people try to grab what they need. The table arrangement reminds me of eating in Chinatown (NYC). Not a bad thing for me because it’s very familiar but it is also quite crowded and noisy. The food? Other than the chicken gyro salad (that “chicken” stinks), I have had good food experiences at Reston Kabob. It’s the real deal and yes, the bread is good (although I have had much better). Pricing is a little below average for this kind of food (like Moby Dick and others), so that might make up for the crowded, poorly laid out space and “good” food quality. For Reston, this is about as good as it gets though, so save your tolls and time and try it for yourself! If I could give 3.75 stars I would, so 4 may be a little kind. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)
