Yum!

We had a great experience here. Ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala, Matar Paneer, and Garlic Naan. We enjoyed both dishes and the Naan was wonderful. The Chicken Tikka Masala was a little light on meat, but very tasty (more tomato flavor than I am used to) and had lots of sauce to scoop up. The staff... read more

A pleasant surprise for being located right on campus, surrounded by bars serving cheap happy hour specials. Nothing fancy (e.g., styrofoam and plastic utensils), but the flavors were right on, including the chutneys add-ons and spice level. It was like being transported to the motherland...

I had the goat curry (spicy) with a Taj Mahal lager and my wife had the chicken korma with water. It was amazing! The spicy curry has a kick... stay away from it if you're not in to it. The goat is boney and kind of an adventure picking the meat off the bone but well worth the labor. My... More

One orders at the counter, either a Chef Specialty, or a meat (chicken, lamb, beef, etc.) and a sauce of your choice. It comes in a styrafoam container with lots of Basmati rice. There are plastic forks, knives, and spoons to eat with. There are perhaps 6-7 tables and some counter space, but many people take their food out. The... More

The food rivals home cooked Indian food my family makes. I wish the staff acted a little more professional, but dealing with bratty U of A kids all day can't be easy.

I had veggie korma, which was savory and delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful when I asked for a recommendation. Great place for a quick casual lunch!

Kababeque has turned me on to Indian food, especially the chicken Korma and garlic naan. The Korma is thick and savory, and the garlic naan always comes out hot and loaded with garlic. My husband has tried the tikka masala and said it was good, but since then has come back to the Korma as his favorite. Unlike a lot... More

Good food, casual dining (everything comes in to-go containers)and fast! I get the Ordered Paneer Tikka Masala and naan and have been very happy. Staff are very friendly and helpful if you have questions when ordering.

Ran in for a quick bite to eat with a friend. Ordered Paneer Tikka Masala and naan. I ordered it with medium heat. I loved the paneer tikka masala and the regular naan. It was great; a little warm for me, but I am a wimp when it comes to hot foods. I really liked the flavors. I also ordered... More

The curry we all had was delicious, and the portion sizes were huge! Definitely authentic-tasting. I feel as though this place often gets missed, which is unfortunate as they do an excellent curry!
