Naz’s Halal Food will open two new MoCo locations in 2022. The new restaurants will be located in Germantown and Rockville, a representative from the restaurant confirmed today.
As of now, we don’t have exact locations, but we’re told Edmonston Crossing (the shopping center that is home to Iron Age) is likely in Rockville. Permits have recently been submitted and more information will be provided as it becomes available.
The first location outside of New York was also in MoCo, at the Burtonsville Town Center, next to Tropical Smoothie Cafe. That location opened in August 2020 and has become a local favorite with late night hours, remaining open until 2am Sunday through Thursday and 4am on Friday and Saturday.
The restaurant offers rice platters, sandwiches, gyros, wings, salads, and more.
Since the Burtonsville opening, Naz’s Halal has expanded to California and Rhode Island.
Naz’s Halal Food began as a food truck in Queens, NY in 2009. The first brick and mortar restaurant opened in 2018 and there are currently five locations, all in New York. It was founded by cousins Naz and Kareem, who were both public-school teachers at the same New York City school.
