Houston Press' Description
This Iranian kabob joint has to be one of the best deals in the city. The chengeh kabob, which includes two skewers of grilled lamb chunks served with onion, charbroiled tomato, fresh basil and parsley, scallions, radishes and hot-from-the-oven Iranian flat bread, sells for $7.45. Or try the Darband Special, which includes one skewer of the lamb chunks and another of tender shish kebab (beef cubes). The plates are Styrofoam and there's no table service, but at these prices, who cares?
Tips from foursquare
Best Kobideh in town. Great Price on food, and serve free Hot Tea after every meal.
Most dishes are $5-7. The food is Persian style grill and shishkabobs. Order the kubideh beef kabob, it melts in your mouth.
Hard to beat their prices for fresh kabobs grilled right in front of you. For platters that come default with white rice, ask for dill rice instead.
Friendly staff... Food is good too, id come back.
My favorite spot for inexpensive, but extremely delicious Persian eats. Free piping hot tea, if you ask, plus the best beef kubideh found anywhere.
