I love this restaurant's food. I have ordered take-out many times. These days I hesitate to visit in person though because I am so put off by the giant television set that dominates the small space. I have friends who feel the same way. This is a really small space with a really big tv (tuned - ugh! - to... More

We just had a midweek dinner at the Kebab factory. We had meat samosas for appetisers and prawn saag/ lamb rogan josh for mains. Also a very nice paratha bread. Our first curry in the US after 15 years of Brit curry extravaganza. The Kebab factory is an excellent contender but surprisingly no poppadoms we served. We will be returning... More

We happened upon the mid-day buffet at the Kebab factory and were very pleased with the selection. Fresh, tasty, Indian food and naan kept very hot and replenished often.

The restaurant had nice waiters, comfortable seating and a nice spread for a buffet. I wish the mint sauce was better and the restaurant cleaner (in the back) - otherwise not a bad choice for lunch.

I am lucky to live between the Kebab Factory and Punjabi Dhaba - two amazing Indian places in Inman. Even though Punjabi Dhaba is more affordable, the Kebab Factory tastes just a little bit better. It's the best Indian food I've had in the Boston area. It is on the expensive side, but they treat you well there - you... More

Having tried over 10 Indian restaurants in Boston + Cambridge, I stumbled upon this one last week. Simply amazing. Very authentic Indian food and extremely warm service! Plus, the portion size is relatively large. Good value for money too. Highly recommended!

We used to go all the time the last 10 years. I am sad to report for the last 4 or so years the quality of the food has been diminishing. Since the new owners took over recently, they are trying hard to bring the place up to quality but it is far from fine dining. The food was always... More

We had the Chicken Tandoori and it was wonderful. The entree prices are reasonable. The only complaint would be that the service was a little slow and inconsistent. This restaurant is definitely worth going to.

We arrived at the restaurant for dinner and were promptly seated. After this, the service broke down. We had to wait nearly 40min before our order was even taken, despite flagging down our hostess several times, who kept saying "just a minute". Finally after a long wait, we placed our orders. Our drinks were forgotten despite multiple reminders, and several... More

I love Indian food and thought that this place was pretty good! I thought it was a little more pricey than it should have been but overall a good experience.
