So, I predate the Jimmah Carter era and have enjoyed Persian food both in the country itself and where Persian cuisine is at its best ie LA California. Much to my delight, Dallas has, over the decades, grown to have excellent repast choices. Persian/ Mediterranean/Middle Eastern PMM (forgive the lumping of the three areas but the restaurants in Dallas do this in order to widen their appeal) food is quite good here and it was only 20 years ago that going to one of these establishments was a way to experience for a short while what the Embassy Hostages must have endured. So, I see complaints about dry meat, fried fish, bad service, costs, uninspiring desert etc. and am appalled. One reviewer said the dish did not look good so he did not eat it but opined anyway.
it is now my turn to mislead you. Kabobi is in an area with many similar restaurants, almost like being in a quaint bazaar with choices and choices, except that you are in Dallas and must drive to each choice and nothing is quaint. So, I have lunch with my daughter who works nearby every Thursday and over time, have had lunch at every PMM in the area several times and we have settled on Kabobi as our favorite. The $12 buffet is reasonable if you eat at least .8 pounds of food, especially meats with the wonderful sauces applied and save money with a small snack for dinner. Done correctly, the pallid desert choice is inconsequential as you are only a wafer mint away from exploding. The little fish are actually one of my favorite items, light batter, flavor is great, and you can eat more of another meat because it is a buffet. Without a doubt, Kabobi has the best to offer of the PMM, and if your meat is dry, try a different choice or gargle with olive oil for all I care. The restaurant is a wonderful find, the white table cloths confused me at first but once tucked under my chin I realized the brilliance..I put 5 for the rating as it is located in Dallas...compared to Israel, L.A., Cairo, London and even Turkey it would be less than a 5..but it is only $12 without airfare.
