Kabab - Restaurant

"Kabab - Taste of Arabia" - how can any honest glutton ignore a signboard like that? And so we (me, Sandeep & Adarsh) decided to pay a visit to this restaurant at Pattom (opposite to LIC/Railway/BSNL building) for dinner yesterday.

Kababs, Kababs and more Kababs! but....

As the restaurant's name goes, there are several Kababs on the menu. We were confused by the choice that was offered. Having come here for the first time (and for no other reason, honest!), we decided to go for variety and ordered 'half' servings of three different Kababs - Malai Kabab, Kalimirch Kabab & Arabian Kabab (whatever that is).

When the dishes were served, all confusions (about choice) vanished. They all looked exactly the same! We asked the waiter boy to point out and he did his random 'this is that, and that is this' routine.

Anyway, it didn't matter much because they all tasted the same. Absolutely no difference at all (or perhaps our taste buds are not sensitive enough, our fault, totally). Should've re-arranged the plates and then asked the waiter to figure them out!

In the quest to find a different Kabab, we ordered 'that red colour Kabab' (they call it Resmi Kabab). That turned out to be a little different in taste and appearance, but nothing great.

In short, the restaurant does not live up to it's name. The ambience is not that great, but the prices are not too high either. A half serving has 6 Kabab pieces and costs Rs.70-80. The Kababs (at least the 4 we tried) all taste the same and leave nothing to brag about.

PS: If you're a lover of Kababs/Kebabs, I recommend you try the Salarjung Kabab at Dakhani Degh. It's awesome. You may skip the Dakhani Sheekh Kabab, though.

    Thanks. It was indeed the name that tempted us to try it out.
