Najib's background with kabobs began as a personal hobby back in Kabul Afghanistan. When asking Najib about his background with kabob he stated "Kabob has always been my hobby. Since my teenage years I would love to host weekend parties and celebrations with kabob. As I grew up I have continued to enjoy cooking kabob and maintaining Afghani homestyle taste." Being a hobbiest chef has given Najib more than 30 years of experience cooking kabobs before his venture in the food service industry. As business progressed and the food became a great success, Najib passed along his work and knowledge to his sons and continued to expand his venture to introduce great food to Northern Virginia.
Najib and Abdul opened two more locations leaving their first Annandale restaurant to Najib's sons Omar and Massi Sidiqi to manage. Since the restaurant first opened in 1997, they have been involved in the restaurant's operation with their father managing them. Now Massi and Omar have over 7 years of expierience with kabobs and the food service industry.
To date, Najib and Abdul have expanded to five locations in Northern Virginia and Washington DC.
