My favorite cuisine was done pretty darn near perfect. The food was really excellent. Beef kabob koobiedah seasoned perfectly and combined with the basmati rice, grilled tomato and sumac - delicious! The tabouleh salad and hot tea with sugar cubes were so fresh and tasted amazing. Reminds me of my favorite place in Miami. It's been hard to find a... More

Arrived at this restaurant to find it only populated by what seemed friends of the business owners who left shortly after we arrived. The menu was not very English-speaker friendly, as it had several dishes that weren't fully explained and attempting to ask your server for multiple descriptions is uncomfortable. We both had lamb kabobs, me having simply basmati rice... More

I used to come here regularly when it was "Cafe Morae" and I had been back once for lunch after it changed name/hands. It used to be excellent, with consistently good food and service. I was severely disappointed with this most recent visit. I had a Groupon and decided to come here with a friend for a Friday night dinner.... More

Persia House of Kabob is a strip mall restaurant which has a long way to go to live up to it's prices. The food was mediocre at best, the shrimp in the shrimp kabob was overcooked, the chicken in a couple of kabobs was dry and the rice was basically tasteless. Not at all what we were expecting. The one... More

We tried this place out on a limb due to a groupon special. Without exaggeration, their beef kabob was literally the most delicious beef I have ever eaten. I WILL be returning. You get a lot of food for the modest prices. Service was quick and the restaurant is very authentic. Their baklava was amazing, as well, and served with... More

When I am consulting at the university, this is my go to lunch place. It never disappoints. I had my usual marinated tenderloin kabob. It is served with fragrant rice and grilled tomato. If you select this order it cooled medium. You will really enjoy the flavor. The hot tea is usually a good beverage to accompany the meal but... More

Persia House of Kabob has been at Fletcher & 15th St. for 25 years, and the reason is because their food is perhaps the best Middle Eastern cuisine in the area. The kabobs are lightly seasoned and perfectly cooked, not burned. Great place for dining with family and for people who want to try something different with a mild seasoning... More

The food was tasty, but the service was inefficient and very slow. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, so they weren't that busy. I asked for water when we placed our order, asked again when they delivered our food, and finally I got up and grabbed two bottles of water from the cooler in the market section... More

If you are looking to tickle your taste buds with Middle Eastern cuisine then check out Persia House of Kabob! I love dining out where I can get various ethnic cuisines that closely represent an authentic menu. We stopped in for lunch, a late lunch, after 3:30pm (which is extended to 4 pm) We were immediately & pleasantly greeted by... More
