Description: At Naan & Kabab, we would like to think of our dishes as a culinary journey -- a chance to get away during the time you join us for your meal. Lamb Shish Kabab and Rack of Lamb Kabab grilled to perfection (all lamb is Halal). Exotic spices and seasonings that make your mouth water and your tongue dance. Creamy and comforting hummus paired with delightfully fluffy naan bread. Juicy and steamy vegetables fresh off of the grill. Our passion is capturing all of the excitement and romance of Mediterranean food in every bite. Naan & Kabab is a fantastic place for friends to meet, to celebrate moments with your closest loved ones, or for a great meal, guaranteed, any night of the week. Just to be sure you have the best experience with us, please call ahead for exact closing times in case we have to close earlier due to weather. We look forward to serving you our famous hummus, falafel, gyros, and kababs!

This restaurant sits directly across the street from the Peppermill Hotel/Casino. Looks kind of funky from the outside; but is clean and attractively appointed on the inside. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Regarding alcohol, they serve beer and wine only with a reasonably priced wine list. We started with the hummus sampler which included regular hummus, hummus with roasted red pepper, hummus with cilantro and jalapeno pepper, baba ganoush and a roasted tomato salsa. It was fabulous. This alone was worth the visit. My wife ordered the steak kebab with roasted vegetables with a small Greek side salad instead of rice. The kebab and roasted vegetables were excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly and was very tender and tasty. The salad was another story. It was over dressed and way too vinegary for our taste. All we could taste was vinegar. I ordered the kabab koobideh (ground beef and lamb mixture) with roasted vegetables and basmati saffron rice. Excellent except for the rice. The rice as either under cooked or dried out. The grains were hard and it was not seasoned well. It was bland. I ate a couple of bites and passed on the rest. Next time, I will substitute a Greek salad with a different dressing and the dressing on the side for the rice. Considering all the naan and hummus we ate, we don't need the carbs anyway. Overall, we were happy with our meal and will definitely go back.

I'm glad you enjoyed your first meal with us, Bill! It sounds like you've got your next visit planned out as well. We hope you'll give our fluffy and flavorful rice another try while you're here -- it's a real hit! I'll be looking forward to learning how you find everything next time.

Until then,

Parking is adequate. The property is small and noise level is high. Reception is very professional and friendly. It is very clean. The menu is exciting. Had the humus sampler. Sooo....... Gooooooood. Had the halibut with the lamb. Truly an outstanding experience. I would give it 4 1/2 if I could.

Thank Edward S

It sounds like our hummus sampler won your favor, Edward! I'm happy that and the halibut were right up your alley. Thanks for the feedback regarding our parking area too. I hope you'll join us again very soon for a truly five-star experience.

Looking forward to it,

So I was visiting my daughter and wanted to try something different to eat, we found this very cute and cozy place.We had the house Hummus for an appetizer, which was very good and fairly priced. I had the Kabab Koobedeh for my entree and it was delicious, my daughter had the Falafel Plate and she enjoyed it as well.I would recommend this restaurant anyone. I will be sure and visit again on my next visit to Reno NV.
