Best Tandoori Chicken

Let me begin by saying that this rating is a CAUTIOUS 4 star. Although I liked the food and had a good dining experience, here are my caveats: Lamb Biryani - spicy, but there's very little lamb visible; our server forgot to serve us the raita which is important in cooling your mouth from the... read more

We have heard such good things and I was excited about eating here. Before we ordered I found a cockroach hiding under my sons fork. I can not speak for the food because we left. I am trying to erase this experience from my mind.

Love the food at Kabab and Curry's. My family and kids enjoy all their dishes with my personal favorites being Mushroom Mutter and Palak Paneer... Can't go wrong with any of their dishes...

Kabab and Currys has great food with lots of flavor. The chicken tikka masala and butter chicken are delicious with just the right amount of spice. The tandori chicken is a must and usually seen on all tables. The place is always busy and does a tremendous amount of takeout orders. Service is average at best or would have rated... More

My friend and I went to have lunch today and really enjoyed it. The waiters and service was friendly and quick. You get the warm naan bread delivered on the table. All the dishes were prepared deliciously and presented nicely. It got refilled quick when an item ran out. For $10 per person and such tasty food, I will definitely... More

They have the best chicken biriyani in the bay area. We do takeout of biriyani once in a while and have never been disappointed. They do run out, so go there by 7pm on Tue, Thu, or Sat if you want to eat chicken biriyani. Lunch time this place is a complete mess. Buffet lines are long and they have... More

This restaurant has been in business for years and is amazing- the food is absolutely the best in the Bay Area for biriyani / tandoori chicken/ shish kabab / naan & all kinds of currys - this is a family run restaurant & the owner is personally in the kitchen watching over the food preparation. The food is super fresh... More

Don't let the look and the atmosphere of this place fool you. Food is great -especially the buffet! The tandoori chicken is also the best you can have i nthe area. Also - great little sweet yogurt desserts in the end!

I've been here several times. A few for the buffet lunch and once for dinner. Each time I've been the food has been great. Excellent flavor and good selection. I agree with other reviews that the service isn't as attentive as it should be, but if you come for the lunch buffet it doesn't matter as much. If you're in... More

Its a great place to take away. Ambience is terrible and noisy. Service is really poor. But the great food takes away most of the negative points. Please order 1 day in advance and pick up the food on time else you maybe disappointed.
