A friend and I tried Sabzi for the first time last week, and my only disappointment is that it's taken me so long to discover it. The menu is small and comprises primarily kebabs with accompaniments, but the food is delicious. My sirloin kebab was beautifully marinated and well-cooked; the rice was fragrant and fluffy; and the salad shirazi was... More

The perfect choice for first outing in wheelchair due to ankle injury. Cozy, intimate, quiet on a week night. Appetizers and entree kebabs served family style by request made sharing among four friends so easy. Pleasant service, nice selection of wines and beers. Fresh tomato cucumber salad and grilled Cornish hen remain our favorite menu selections. So glad that Sabzi... More

This was our first experience trying Persian food and we will go back for more! We shared a chicken steak kabob that was incredibly tender, not very spicey but just plain delicious. It's a small, almost romantic spot with great service. Very limited beer and wine list so have your fancy drink before you go to eat. Healthy yogurt apps... More

We had a lovely Persian dinner that was delicious. We shared a soup to start that was absolutely delicious. We then shared a ground meat, chicken & vegetable kabobs. They were terrific. The vegetables were grilled perfectly. For dessert they have a baklava plate that has 4 pieces, each one a different version. They were the best I've ever had.... More

Sabzi is a charming little Iranian restaurant. The food was excellent. We split chicken and ground beef kabobs with basmati rice and roasted tomatoes. The restaurant is tiny, only a few seats, so I’d possibly call ahead.

Loved the food and tea! It's a small cozy place. Waitress was very sweet and explained the menu. Price is reasonable too.

I went with friends and each of us ordered either the chicken or beef kabobs. They were excellent....perfectly cooked, interesting seasonings and served with delicious rice. Our server was friendly and attentive. We arrived early and were the only diners, but the restsurant filled quickly and there was a wait by the time we left. I will definitely return.

We went for a low-key birthday dinner, and were in the mood for middle eastern cuisine. We liked what we saw on the online menu because there were vegetarian options available. The restaurant is delightfully decorated with lots of homely memorabilia. You truly get the feeling that you are in a lived-in space. The layout makes the most of the... More

This was the first place we are at in Arlington and we were happy that we stopped in. The menu is diverse, but not too large or complicated. Some mezzo' sand appetizers to get you started like yogurt dip or pickled veggies. The kebobs were done well and came with some good basmati rice. The kids who are 4 and... More

Great service---the owner/manager went over all of the food choices, showed me a listing of all common allergens / ingredients by dish, and made sure the food served was safe. Wonderful Shirazi, Kebabs (both meat and vegetarian) and rice topped with saffron. Note: This is a cozy restaurant with about 8-10 tables. Suggest asking for reservations if your party is... More
