About Shish Kabob
Authenticity is the focus at this Middle Eastern restaurant, which was named Best Persian Food in Nashville Scene's Best of Nashville 2011. Owner and Iraq native Hikmat Gazi adorns the space with traditional decor, from the deep-red color of the walls to glass boxes displaying traditional Persian clothing. Diners looking for the full experience can sit on a cushion on the floor and dine on a traditional, low table. Then, of course, there is the food itself, from the titular shish kabob to lamb shanks seared and flavored with regional-specialty spices.
Nashville Scene also chronicles Hikmat’s absorbing journey from an adolescence spent in a Turkish refugee camp during the Gulf War to his triplicate success in the restaurant business. After working with the U.S. military in Iraq, Hikmat returned stateside to continue serving savory Middle Eastern fare at the original Nolensville Rd. location, and has recently opened a new downtown location.
