I've been to Kababish with my family several times in the past couple of years and it has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants! Everything I've tried has been delicious. I tend to eat very little meat and their veggie appetizer sampler is great...to share! I also love the Malai Kofta; I've tried it at other restaurants but this is my favorite by far! My step-father loves the lamb here! What's more the service is always wonderful! The owners are extremely kind and welcoming and the wait staff has always been friendly and helpful! I'd highly recommend this restaurant.More

Horrible food. Over seasoned and the staff was super slow. We waited 15 minutes for our check and still had to go inside to ask for it.

The food here is great, fresh, and unique. Definitely Middle Eastern fusion cuisine. I tried the apricot chicken wrap, it was great. In addition, the owner and staff were very kind, and made sure that my doggie, whom I was sitting outside with, got a...treat. Also had a very nice conversation with the owner, who is kind, and definitely a family man. Highly recommend, and definitely will be back.More

Not only is the food wonderfully unique with "family' recipes of standard dishes, they HAPPILY accommodate food preferences if you ask [shellfish allergy, gluten free, etc]. I'm proud to bring my friends and colleagues back over and over.

It’s been a while since we visited Kabbalah and this time my husband decided to buy and take out a couple of Greek salads, which was his favorite. When we opened the first package it was very disappointing, It contained mostly just lettuce, one pepper,...a couple of tomato slices and a smattering of feta cheese. We added tomatoes, olives, more feta cheese and then it was much better. He called to tell them and they said thank you for your feedback. Hopefully they will get it back to what it was!More

We were celebrating a friend's birthday and wanted to try something different. We are so glad we happened upon Kababish! When we walked in we were pleasantly surprised by the festive decor and then we were equally surprised by the big menu. Thank goodness there...were photos and then we still couldn't decide as it looked so interesting and there were so many choices. Thank goodness the owner helped us out. My friend and I tried a salad that was like nothing I'd ever had but we liked it. We then shared one vegetarian dish and one with kabobs. The eggplant entree was a bit spicy and one of the kabobs was a bit dry but we still enjoyed the food and experience. The naan was out-of-this-world delicious! We plan to go back and try more items.More

This was our first visit to Kababish and we were well rewarded. The food was excellent, the service attentive, and we had a wonderful post-dinner conversation with the owners. This is what any family restaurant should aspire to be. We will be back soon. So...many more dishes to try.More

I love the authenticity and warmth of this restaurant. The food is very fresh and high-quality, and the owners are attentive and kind. My favorites are the saag paneer, garlic naan, chaat, and mango lassi. This is also one of the few places that has...salted iced lassi - a must!More

Even a 1 star is not needed for the food we ordered (Chicken Dum Biryani and Chicken Kabobs). We asked to made it spicy thinking it would be tasty but for spiciness some pepper or chilli powder was added extra in the food. It's like...eating food to get your stomach burned, the food is horrible no good taste whatsoever. Save yourself some money, time and horrid experience by keeping away from this place.More

I didn't think it was possible for Indian food to be bland. We ordered medium level spiciness. If that was medium, mild must be a glass of water. Very disappointed.

This was our first visit to Kababish, and what an amazing discovery!! The food was awesome: everything freshly made, just enough spices and beautifully presented. The Owner Samreen, and her son who served us, were extremely pleasant and welcoming. While waiting for our dinner, we...chatted with another couple who have been patrons for over 6 years and they could not stop boasting about the great service and delicious dishes. We highly recommend this restaurant: for locals and visitors to Cary!! You can even BYOB!More

The food is fresh and delicious. We had the Kababish Shrimp and the onion pakora for appetizers. The shrimp were huge and the spiced tempura batter was so crunchy and delicious. I had the Pakistan chicken stew Haleem with naan. Very tasty. I especially liked...the slivers of fresh ginger in the stew and the naan, well it’s amazing. My husband had lamb kabobs and our friend had tandoori shrimp. Everything was wonderful. The owner came over to chat with us and she’s so sweet. The place is family run and service is good. I felt very safe COVID-wise since they have diners well spaced. Will definitely go back!More
