“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

I visited today for the first time for lunch. Been wanting to try this little place after reading these reviews. I ordered channa and nan. The food was tasty,authentic and I could not fault. Indian myself I am use to home curries and this is what it tasted as. I work nearby so I know with faith that I will be here alot for when I fancy that something tasty. Food beats many restaurants. It is small and humble with staff that are friendly and welcoming. Keep up the good work. A truely hidden gem that must be tried

“Lukewarm curry and stuff floating in jug of tap water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Visited Kabana based on the reviews here and had 3 curries on rice for £5.50. My husband and I had lamb, chicken and keema dishes. The food was tasty but lukewarm as you can expect where they have been cooked and left sitting in a pot. The place was very busy, loads of people stopping by for lunch, and seems like they have quite a few regular customers. I prefer Kabana to the nearby This and That as there is a fixed price for the 3 curries and rice as opposed to having to pay more for meat dishes. I am glad I tried it but won't be returning, as would prefer to go somewhere where the curries are freshly cooked and piping hot. If I do return, I will probably try the bryani.

“Awesome authenticity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

A little shop tucked away in the northern quarter hosts quality fresh cuisine. The choice is good and cooked right under your nose. You can eat in too with no extra cost. This place is impossible to walk past.
