Review: Afghan Kabob (Arlington Courthouse)

Just opened Afghan Kabob restaurant across the street from Courthouse metro station. Like a well balanced combination of Indian and Near Eastern cuisine, as you would have geographically expected. Lamb Kabob ($9.99 for combo) comes in both grilled and oven -baked choices. Green 'mint chutney' like sauce with it was Indian; but kabob was pure near eastern. Cooked fully but not burnt, as some other places. Four choices of rice including Spinach and raisin pilaf. Overall high quality, fresh, large portions. Only complaints are that the bread gets soggy due to putting it on the bottom of the meat, and the owner drowned the salad with good-but-not-so-good-i-would-drink-it-plain "fake caesar" italian dressing.

Return-worthy experience.

    1. we had lunch here the other day and were very very pleasantly surprised. the salad was really fresh and the chicken was to die for, and the serving size was very generous. this will definitely go in the regular rotation.
