“Still curry after all these years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We started going to Kebab N Kurry back in the 80's, when it was nearly the only Indian restaurant in the area. Now there are dozens of Indian restaurants, but this one is still hanging in there. The decor is very simple; the tables are glass-covered. You can peek through a window at the kitchen, were I could see two men working (on a Friday night).

The wait staff here used to be all Indians, but now Indians work in IT and the wait staff were Americans. Service was prompt and efficient.

The menu is quite extensive, with many vegetarian options as well as all manner of meat options. They do not have a liquor license but welcome you to bring your own. Wine glasses were promptly provided. Of course, this makes for an inexpensive dinner.

I had lamb korma, very tasty. Onion kulcha bread was excellent. My wife was pleased with her malai kofta kashmiri.

One thing to note: the lunch buffet, while a good value, is served at sort of an average spice level. For dinner, you can specify how spicy you want your food.

“no kebab no curry”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

They ve got a big sign that says kebab n curry , we ve went yesterday for lunch buffet but there was no kebab and no curry on the buffet, I ve called and spoke to the owner and she told me that the chicken tandoori is also considered kebab, ya right...
Kebab is either beef or lamb, chicken tandoori is not kebab
She also said that we could have ordered kebab from the menu, and also mentioned that there are no other restaurants that serve kebab on their lunch menu
I would say to you Miss owner you better start going to other places on lunch to see what they serve
Your food was terrible

“Good Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Earlier this year I decided to try the KNK. Driving up to the building, I wondered if I had the right place -- it's located between some auto repair shops. But once inside, I found an above-average restaturant that was bustling with diners, even on a Thursday evening. The wait staff was pleasant despite the crowd. The menu was quite extensive and included pictures to match to the sometimes unfamiliar dish names. I recall trying the navratan korma with rice, along with a couple of other things. Everything was seasoned properly -- nothing was overwhelming. While the portions could have been a little larger, overall a very good dining experience.

“Great Indian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010

In response to a previous reviewer--excuse ME???!!! I don't know what good Indian food is?
I have had Indian food in major cities in the US and Europe (and yes, India). I rate this restaurant as about the best you can get in Dallas Metro area. The only better Indian is India West (owned by the same family). It is always a treat to eat at this restaurant. I have eaten at this restaurant many times and I have never seen the owner yell at his employees.
I have seen him talk to them and instruct them when they are not delivering good service (something you have to do to stay in business). The chicken korma excellent!

“Owner frequently yells at staff, very...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2009

Owner frequently yells at staff, very rude. They serve the same slop every day. Strictly for people that don't know what good Indian food tastes like. I never see Indians eating there, I wonder why?
