Check out Layalina on Wilson Blvd. in Arlington, just west of George Mason Drive. Very tasty, though a bit pricey for dinner (as is Lebanese Taverna). About $15-$18 for entrees.

For a quick fix, Moby Dick's in Clarendon is great.

FYI, India is in South Asia, not the Middle East--but half the population is Muslim, so there are some Middle Eastern elements of Indian food, like lamb dishes. Similarly, Afghanistan is Central Asia, but everyone is Muslim, so again, lots of lamb.

Eh gotta disagree with Carlingtonian, as a persian we hate moby dick. Its good for what it is, but its the fast food option. If your in clarendon go to Kabob Bazaar, its glorious, authentic, and the same price without making you feel sick afterwards.

All their rice has saffron on it too which is how you know its the real deal.

Fair enough, TysonsEngineer; but for non-Persians, it's close enough to authentic. (And I've never gotten sick afterward.)

I love that place! Good luck getting a seat unless you go at 3pm, though. It's a madhouse.

When I worked near there, I went there a lot for lunch. My husband and I tried a place out here in the suburbs and it doesn't even come close.

While househunting in Sterling, I went to a little place called Darya Kabob in the Sterling Plaza (Rte. 7 & Dranesville Rd.) that was fantastic--better than Kabob Palace, I thought. The Chappeli kabob there was amazing.

Thanks for the recommendation. In our neck of the woods (Burke), we don't have many good options, in my humble opinion.

Leesburg has Flame Kebab, Red Kebab, and Zara Kebab. Kebab and Falafel has been replaced by Juliano's Pizzaria, where I had the worst lasagna of my life last week. They do still have the kebab options, though.

Of these, I liked Zara the best.
