“Excellent kabobs and mediterranean food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Every time I come here the food leaves me wanting more. So far I've tried a couple of the kabobs and they are fantastic - perfectly seasoned and cooked. The dipping sauces you get with the lunch special compliment the meat well - tried the Mirza Ghasemi for the first time today and liked ti so much I'm searching for a recipe.

“Nice Food, can be a little crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

It may not have the most attractive store-front in a little strip mall, but it is a pleasant surprise when you step inside. They offer an exciting menu of many different kabob options - and everything that I have tasted has been very good. They offer take-out as well as table service. With the table service comes a really nice wine selection. They have a fairly extensive list for almost any preference. It is not a 4 page list like you may find in a fine dining establishment. but it is much deeper than the "red, white or pink" option that you may see in some places. My only gripe is that the tables tend to be packed together. I felt like I was playing a game of tetris as I turned left, right, left, etc. to shimmy my way over to our table (although to be fair, it was Valentines weekend and the place was packed). Make a reservation on the weekend or holidays - or you may be waiting a while. Otherwise, grab a few kabobs as take-out and enjoy at home!

“Quantity with Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

If you're hungry, or wish to share a dish, or have leftovers for the next day, you've found a great little place in Nora's Kabob. It's a small place with a big dinner menu of kabob options, and great service. Prices are reasonable. Had the Chicken - Koobideh Kabob combination, with salad and rice, and couldn't finish it (that's rare for me.) More importantly, it was grilled to perfection. (Koobideh, if you're wondering, is a delectable combination of minced lamb and beef.)

“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Good food; well prepared. Might do well to fix up the place, perhaps tablecloths, since they want to be less a carryout and more a sit down joint. Apparently they have music. Must be another room we did not see, as the space seems to small for music. Key thought is the food, which is quite good.

“Friendly...Tasty...but short on Atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

I've dined here several times, most recently in Dec 2013, and have always found the walk-up service very friendly and the food quite tasty. But I'm put off by the fact that the staff is very slow to clear tables. It's not unusual to find oneself seated next to a table full of dirty dishes & food scraps.
