The food at Nora Kabob is always excellent. We've been there four times in the past 6 weeks, and we are always happy with our selection. The restaurant is clean and the service is great.

The service and food were excellent. It is a small restaurant - even though we made reservations, we changed out table as we did not like where they were seating us. Would have been nice if they had given up a better seat to begin with. However, the food was worth the cold, chilly, small table near the door -- food is authentic and reasonably priced! One of my favorites!

Outstanding service, they get it right. Without our Open Table reservation we would have had to wait. Constant flow of very pleased customers as well as loyal takeout customers. Good conversation interactions between manager, staff and customers. They aim to please and they do

Nora's Kabob is a great spot for a casual meal. The beef kabob with pomegranate walnut sauce was delicious, and the meat was tender. I like the fact that you can get a half-salad and half order of rice as the sides. Both were plentiful.

The food and service here are excellent. Highly recommend Nora. The place is small and busy particularly weekend evenings, reservations highly suggested. But remember the place is small, so if you make a reservation show up or be kind and cancel so they can let the table go.

Great meal. We started out with excellent cocktails. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. Don’t miss the hummus. It was

wonderful. Portions are large, especially for the price, which was very reasonable. I’ll be going back.

Group of ten with a number of people unfamiliar with kabobs. Everyone loved the variety. Went back a second time to have the chicken and tenderloin kabobs. The greek salad and rice half and half with kabob choice is amazing and a bargain. You have to try this place.

The food is excellent. We always order the grilled octopus dish and mezze dishes there. Gyros and kabobs are good, too.

My only complaint is the tight space. It is a VERY small restaurant. I have a family member in a wheelchair and it’s almost impossible to dine in with her unless we make a reservation well in advance to let them know about the wheelchair. It’s a bit pricy, too, but it’s definitely one of my favorite local restaurants.

We had reservations for 9pm we arrived about 5-10 mins early. The waitress told us the restaurant is closed. Was rude and told us we had reservations for 845pm so we kindly showed her our conformation for 9pm and she still was rude and did not accommodate us. I don't recommend it.

This place is a gem. Great restaurant, super menu for Mediterranean food. They never disappoint me. Wait staff is spectacular. Just the right combination of checking up on you without interrupting you. Kabobs are fantastic, always grilled well. Love the dolmades and the salsa type appetizer. I order the lamb, my wife the salmon, my adult children the chicken and everyone goes home happy. Quite a meal and a wonderful experience. We eat there every couple of weeks.

This was our first visit to Nora's Kabobs and it won't be our last. A small, clean, casual restaurant in a strip center in Ellicott City is a great find along the shopping and fast food on Route 40. The food was well prepared and delicious--portions were very large and pricing was reasonable. What a gem! We made reservations although it was not crowded early on Sunday evening, but given its small size, it probably is a good idea to reserve.

We'll be back for Nora's delicious Middle Eastern kabob's and other specialties. Hurray for a great place to eat in Ellicott City.

We had a reservation and arrived right about on time. The place was backed and had a fair number of people waiting. I went over to check with someone who seemed in charge and saw my name was about number three or four on a list which I assume were reservations. We were told it would be about 10 or 15 minutes. Right! I could look across all the tables and except for one table for two, no other parties seemed close to be ready to depart. Unfortunately, we were a party of 4, so the 'table for two' wasn't going to help us. After about 15 minutes, we just left and went down the highway to Ernesto's where, without a reservation, we did get seated in 10 minutes.

We really enjoyed Nora's the last time we were there, but this time was a total bust. That's why this may seem like an inconsistent review - I would not have rated all those factors but I could not submit this review without checking the stars. And yes, I have recommended it to others, but if I do again, I will warn them about reservations.

Great experience just wish they knew about my open table reservation. Apparently it was never received by Noras from Open Table (I even showed the manager my confirmation email from OpenTable - this is not the first time this happened with Noras). Nevertheless they were able to accommodate my party but it’s unsettling that I went thru the trouble of making a reservation for it to be lost.

Small space, so reservation is very helpful at busy times. Some of the best calamari around, and the kabobs are tender, flavorful and moist. Could be a quick bite (or take-out), but also a relaxed 3-course meal with good cocktails and terrific sangria.

What can we say? We love Nora’s Kabob! Tonight we ordered the Saffron Salamn Kabob, the Pom Beef Kabob, and the smoked eggplant appetizer. Had a Russian beer and the dry red Armenian wine. All delicious, as usual. The only thing they can improve on is dessert...never had one that we liked. EVERYTHING ELSE IS ALWAYS DELICIOUS and the portions are generous, price reasonable. Fresh ingredients, friendly and efficient service...see you soon!
