Originally known as Moby’s Luncheonette, it was founded in 1989 by Mike Daryoush. It would eventually be named Moby Dick House of Kabob when the owner created the Persian-inspired menu.

There are 21 locations in the Washington Metropolitan area. Each of these locations follows their five food pillars that have been patterned from authentic Persian cuisine.


As soon as I stepped into the restaurant, I could feel the friendly and joyful atmosphere. It can be quite busy but the ambience stays the same.

The meats of their dishes are excellently done. They serve basmati rice in their dishes which is how it is done in authentic Persian cuisine.

I recommend the Moby Dick’s Combo II as it showcases two of their best dishes. They have an extensive menu for vegetarians as well.

They have a friendly and service-oriented staff. I was able to get my order fast and would totally recommend it to busy go-getters in search of great food.
