I wish we had one of these places in my town, as Midtown Kabob is a secret gem in Reston. If you like authentic Middle Eastern kabobs and gyros, don't miss this place. The food is cooked by Middle Eastern natives, and is some of the best I've ever had. Be sure to come with an appetite, as the portions... More

Not the same as Europe in terms of quality, but makes up for any shortcomings with quantity. Overall OK

I came here for lunch. It was close and within walking distance of the Reston Town Center. It is very busy at lunch time due to the popularity of the restaurant. I ordered the chicken kabobs with rice and it comes with a small salad. All of it was Very Good! The yogurt sauce is very good too. You get... More

They make very good kabobs and side dishes. you get a lot for your money with every platter - a lot of rice, meat, salad, and bread. Good middle eastern food.

Had their Kubida Kabob and it was mediocre. Meat is not tender enough and the spices were sparse. Charbroil Kabob in Herdon is better. At first I thought this may be owned by same folks but the food is not as good.

This place is great and beats the pants off of the "locally named" Kabob joint. Nothing we have ever had here has been bad. I have been eating this style of kabobs for a very very very long time, and this place is my go-to. You won't be disappointed. Mix the green and white sauces for the perfect sauce

A little bit out of view of the rest of the many restaurants of Reston Town Center is this very good Afghan restaurant and take out. The food is served fresh, delicious, the bread is excellent and the staff is courteous. The prices are very reasonable, a generous serving of chicken kebob with rice and salad being at $8.49. My...

Best Kabob around Reston. Food is very good, and they offer great sauces. The platter comes with both bread and rice and if you eat the whole thing you are completely stuffed -- generous portions.
