We are regulars at Moby Dick and decided to give this place a try. Matt's comes out slightly ahead. Food (we had koobedeh and lamb kabob) marginally better, which puts it in the very good category. Service excellent. Ambiance nice. Parking incredibly easy. This could become our go to place for Persian food.

We had out of town guests and we were looking for some good kabab place. Based on reviews we decided to go to Matt's. We showed up on a weekday at 8:50 PM. They went out of the way to arrange tables for us and even though they were in the process of closing down the kitchen, they re-opened and... More

I shared combo II with the wifey. She said the chicken was cooked perfectly and rice was seasoned well. The KASHK A BUDEMJOON was amazing. The staff is so friendly! Plenty of parking as well. Check out the weekly specials if you like more traditional food.

This place is bit far from the main street, but once you are inside it takes you to a different part of the world. The bread (taftoon) is baked of on spot in front of your eyes while you wait and see how the chef handle and cook your meat the way you want i had the kobideh plater which... More

I tried this place a few years ago before it was renovated and have been meaning to go back. Finally did today and it was fantastic! I split an appetizer and the chicken & lamb kabob platter with my Mom and we still had some leftover. The restaurant is comfortable and friendly as were the staff. Feels like an authentic... More

Love this place for good carry out. The Combo I which has chicken kabobs and Koobideh is my fav. Not sure how they do it but, the Chicken Kebobs are as moist and tender as any chicken I've ever had. Very friendly owner too.

I went there on a Tuesday night around 7:50 PM. I asked for the vegetarian platter; the counter man (not very friendly) said they were out of it. I asked for falafel; he said they were out of it. Really? This place is a joke. Don't waste your time or money getting there because "there ain't no there there".

I have eaten in and taken out. I love the chicken and salmon kabobs. Meals come with salad and rice. I perfect stop when I don't feel like cooking!

Wanted to check this place out. I'm not Persian, but I LOVE Persian style kabobs. And, I've explored many many Persian style kabob joints around DC. This place is good. The service was fast and friendly. I ordered my food for carryout and everything was packed up as ordered. But, for me...and my Persian friends will probably disagree, Moby Dick... More

Montgomery County is rich in Kabob restaurants due to the high population of Persians, and others ethnic groups from the Middle East. I think that I have probably eaten at all of them since Persian food is one of my favorite types of cuisine. By far, MATT's is the BEST! I do not say this lightly as some of the... More
