I like the quality - and special taste of their meals. I also enjoyed the impeccable service. I got attended to immediately on arrival, and my order was served within minutes. This is the place to be - for everyone that want s the best.

The service was excellent and the atmosphere was upscale and pleasant but the food was wanting. I have been to Kabab-ji Grill in the Middle East and they do it better there. The pita under our kababs was soaked through with fat and inedible. The kababs tasted good but were not hot off the grill.

Authentic Mediterranean/Lebanese cuisine, the food was great, the staff were nice and the service was very good. You have to try the Arak (special alcoholic drink) with the mix grill. A bit expensive though.

I would give this place a grade B, considering it's one of the newer Middle Eastern restaurants in DC, and given some of its bright spots, I'd like it to to succeed. The Good: The food at Kabab-ji is very good. The kabobs served with different veggies are flavorful, and the appetizers (hummus and baba-ganouj) are tasty. A little bit... More

The service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant, but the food caused everyone in our party to get sick. When I called the next day, the manager was rude. Avoid.

I recently went back to this restaurant and had the worst experience. Food was uneventful, staff was disrespectful. The kept their prices the same but lowered food portions so you leave the restaurant hungry and unsatisfied. Just keep walking there are better Lebanese restaurants in the area.
