I'm not super knowledgeable about Indian food, but I was excited to try The Kebab Factory. It was delicious. A very large menu with great descriptions. The staff is very friendly and helpful too. We had the butter chicken, mixed kebab (lamb, chicken, shrimp), and garlic flat bread. All was incredibly delicious and huge portions. I'll be back soon!

I may be Indian and it may make my standards of Indian food both biased and high, but I believe while Kabab Factory did a good job with their chicken tandoor dish and shrimp. The other dishes were lacking some essential flavors to make it great. A decent sized selection of food. But I would try another location. Will update... More

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at the Kebab Factory. Everything was terrific but I especially loved the lamb kebabs, saag paneer and garlic nan. This is a tiny place, so it fills up on busy nights. The earlier you go, the easier it is to get a table.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. The food is delicious and cheap. You get large portions and a lot of taste. The place is always clean and service is great! They have some lunch buffets that are also fast and you can pick what you want. The breads are done to perfection! the Malai Kofka... More

I've been taking food out for 3-4 years now. It's relatively expensive, but reliable quality. There is usually a treat offered takeout customers -- they give you a small cup of soup while you're waiting. A really nice touch.

We dont eat red meat so cant comment there, but their chicken dishes are amazing. We had three types of kebabs with two types of daals. Extraordinary. Their roties and naans are also very good. Have been there many times, and will be going back.

On Christmas day, there was a wait for 20 minutes or so. It was definitely worth the wait. While I was waiting with a friend, the owner served us some soup on the house which I thought was good hospitality. Small place but the music, lights and decor made me comfortable. Ordered chai, paratha and chicken kebabs. Food smells yummy... More

The Kebab Factory was our steady Indian Restaurant for about a decade, but recently that has changed. We were consistent patrons ordering takeout or delivery every other Friday and frequently the same exact meal. A few months back something happened with the quality of this restaurant. It's not bad, it's just no longer as excellent as it once was. We... More

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
