Where this cook came from? Does this cook actually know what is called kabob? This is one time restaurant, if you want to waste your money, you can eat there. Also, they give less food, quantity is so small for the money they charge for the food. The QUALITY and QUANTITY of food is worst. If you still do not believe me, go there and try their food and come back to me and let me know, am I right or wrong? The cheap owner serve cheap food in a cheap way. I never going back there to eat if God willing and I will tell all my friend in Rochester not to try their food ever. No wonder I do not see much customer in this restaurant whenever I pass by, Whenever I pass by I saw no customer at all most of the time, sometimes one or two customer like me who wanted to try their food for the first time and regret later why they wasted their money to eat there. The owner deprived us by giving small quantity garbage food, God is watching, so he cannot cheat people too long, if God willing. AliKha

They must've changed owners or something because the Monroe Kabob that first popped up on Monroe a few years back was a quality experience in not only the food, but also its outstanding customer service, atmosphere and hours. They recently rearranged everything inside and stripped the place down to bare bones. I suspect new ownership. Now the only thing it really has going for it is the food, which honestly has declined. I still recommend this place to friends, but wish they could get back to where they started. —sub619
