Judging Restaurants – Kababji Grill

Kababji is located at 1351 Connecticut Ave. NW. Now that they’ve been open for a bit I thought we could some initial impressions. Their Web site says:

“The vision emphasizes on product freshness, healthy cooking. Food served fast is not to be confused with fast food, for the main distinction is that our food is entirely prepared from fresh ingredients, Kabab-ji goes the extra mile to bring you fresh quality food that taste great every time.

Our history is that of a traditional Lebanese / Mediterranean menu evolving to an open grill in a contemporary design. In short , it is the essence and value of the past served in a modern dish.”

You can see their menus here. Any fans?

    No fans—they have air conditioning.

    Thank you everybody, I’ll be here all week.

    • Jason

      Horribly unfunny.

  • ShawRes

    Horrible. This is one of the most disappointing lunches I’ve had in a long time. Extremely expensive for the amount of food, questionable use of parsley, inattentive server who asked me several (3 or 4) times if I’d like a cocktail. Complete crap. Really disappointing.

    I was really unimpressed the one time I got take out. No pita to go with hummus, kababs were ok but everything was so so pricey for what you got… and working very close by I see that they seem to be making desperate attempts to get people to come inside…would avoid, especially with so many great, affordable Mediterranean options nearby (Moby Dick’s, Greek Deli)

  • Stoney Danza

    I agree that it’s not cheap as Moby Dick but you’re not eating out of a foam container either. Dick’s cuisine is Iranian, not Mediterranean. Rolled grape leaves tasted fresh and had no sediment. The rolled sandwiches were good and the kabobs were on par with any other in the city. It’s better than Lebanese Taverna. I will be going again.

    Not worth the price, especially for take away. I paid $17 for falafel and salad. The food’s quality is pretty good.

    It was crap.

  • CParkette

    If you are looking for good Mediterranean in the DuPont Circle area, try Levante’s. Service tends to be…uneven…but the food is tasty and you can get out without spending a small fortune.
