Ravi Kabob House, 305 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, VA, 703-522-6666, a few blocks north of Rt. 50 at Pershing in Buckingham Center, a small row of shops (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | zabihah | City Paper | openlist | Yelp | Gayot]
The best kabob and Pakistani restaurant around. The meat here is superb. Plus the chicken and lamb karahi dishes are excellent, but don’t believe them when they say it is enough for two people, it isn’t. A hole in the wall, mom and pop sort of place, but high quality all around and very authentic.
Update May 31, 2006: They’re opening an additional place across the street at 250 N. Glebe Road, next to the CVS.
