I picked this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews and boy are we glad I did. The food was absolutely delicious and they have fresh squeezed juices as well as smoothies. We went there the first night in 29 Palms and again the next night. We had the falafels, beef kabobs, meat shawarma and chicken kabob pita. All delicious--my 7... More

Based upon positive reviews, we tried it and found that it exceeded our expectations. The flavors were really nice, portions were substantive, and it felt like you were their friend. Chicken shwarma, falafel wrap and a veggie platter with grilled flavors shining through on fresh cut veggies were all thoroughly enjoyed by our group!. I highly recommend it.

Lovely Mediterranean meal! Loved the falafel and crushed lentil soup. Great vegan and vegetarian choices.

Oh. My. Word. The guy at the desk at the Fairfield Inn recommended this restaurant and it was delicious. I've eaten falafel many places in the world and this is some of the best. It was frest, light, crispy and well-seasoned. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and prep and was able to tell us which selections worked... More

On our way on the back road from Death Valley to Palm Springs, we figured we's be in Twenty-nine Palms for a late lunch. So we did a TA search and this venue came up. Huh? Middle-Eastern in Twenty-Nine Palms?! Had to try it. The place is easy to find on the small "downtown" main street. Parking is around back.... More

To be honest I had higher hopes for this place thanks to TA reviews. The shawarma was quite dry, though tasty. The tahini and hummus were about average. The service was about average. My favorite part of the meal was actually the salad which was fresh and tasty. I'm not sure if I'd return. Nothing was awful but nothing was... More

Clean, comfortable with eat in or take out. I prefer to eat in as the customer service is pleasant and the food very good. The soups are good and recommend them over the salad (choice soup or salad come with dinner). The kabobs and lamb shanks are tender and flavorful.

Andy and Suha have created an amazing little gem in our Hi-Desert Paradise! Fresh, homemade Mediterranean-American cuisine that can't be best! Ask for their homemade hot sauce - best I ever had!

Finding a good Iraqi restaurant in a small town is odd - unless you consider the 20,000+ Marines stationed at the Combat Center in 29 Palms, many of whom have served in the Middle East.

Our meal at the Palm Kabob House was enjoyable. We had the tabouli, chicken shawarma, falafel plate, lemon lentil soup, and vegetarian plate. All were very good. The fries are more like chips, but were excellent too. Service as prompt and friendly. We were visiting the area, but found the restaurant full on a Wednesday night. Prices were reasonable, and...

An unexpected find in an out-of-the-way place. The entry point for Joshua Tree National Park, 29 Palms is also known for its Marine base. For some reason, Middle-Eastern folks who really know how to cook have landed there. They serve plenty of kabobs, kafta & shawarma; we stuck with the vegetarian food: lemon lentil soup, roasted cauliflower salad, and the absolutely best stuffed grape leaves I've ever eaten. Easy to say, I know, but seriously, these people understand how to spice food in a way that's both subtle and complex. A very satisfying meal.
