We've been fans of Moby Dick for years. For a delicious, healthy and generously portioned meal, they can't be beat! Their food is consistently delicious and flavorful.

If you like Persian food or want to get to know a very delicious cuisine, you have to try it. Best to read up on the choices before you go there. Most dishes come with long grain rice; the kabobs are made right there while you wait (choice of beef, lamb and chicken, the latter with spicy variants). The flat bread is also made on the premises (you see the oven). There are tables, but we like to order and pick up; often order when we have guests; the food is packed catering style so you can bring directly to the table for a large party.

Even though this is a fast food place, all the meals seem quite healthy and they are very tasty! Lavash and humus are just amazing- have some before your order comes. Lost of different options to choose.

Our family stopped here for a fast lunch before leaving town. We all had kabobs and all were very tasty. The pita bread and yogurt was good, and the rice excellent. Simple but tasty meal for a reasonable price.

We ordered this as takeout. The counter service was fast & easy.

The main dishes were pretty good - chicken & ground beef kabobs (joojei & kubijeh) with rice.

The salad was bleh - it really had no flavor. I'm not sure it was actually made there (I actually just threw it out). The hummus was also good, but came in a take-out bowl from the fridge. However, the bread was obviously made there and was good.

Quick & easy Mediterranean food - not the best, but not bad.
