The restaurant is quite small and needs a little updating. The Greek salad was just OK, the potatoe was cold and undercooked, the rice could have been hotter, but I have to say that the lamb and chicken breast skewers were each outstanding. The naan bread starter was good.

we use to take out pretty often from here until they charged almost double (did you notice they never charge less "by mistake"?). nevertheless food is good.

This is one of the most reasonably priced Persian restaurants. Go in the back door through a curtain and sit down and be waited on by the best wait staff - friendly, answer questions and fast. Everything we have had here is good - better than good. Large portions you could actually split.

House of Kabab is a good spot for Persian cuisine. It looks a bit like a trailer on the side of the road but the food is very good, affordable and authentic. They have many items which you will not get anywhere else in Calgary.

Come here after good skiing day. Looks simple house from outside but comfortable and really friendly atmosphere inside. Got lamb kebob - come with rice (with greatly spiced and with wonderful flavour) and fresh salad. Complimentary welcome pita bread for all visitors. Friendly and cute service. Wonderful place of you want to experience real homestyle Persian meal in friendly atmosphere.... More

My new favourite weekend lunch spot! Great Persian fair, big portions, great value! There is not much else to say. We were a group of three and everybody left very satisfied.

Wow! The moment you see this restaurant, you'll think...how could the food be good? The location is not in a busy area. Restaurant space is very small. Place could use a renovation. But the moment you order from their simple and easy menu...you're in for a treat. 5 simple words: fresh, delicious, tender meat, cheap eats & amazingly good! 10/10... More

Great food at a great price. We both had the lamb kabobs and found it very moist and tender. The rice pilaf was excellent. We felt we got a large meal for the price and worth every penny.
