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

We come every weekend for their butter chicken and mango lassi - the butter chicken really is to die for! Their naan is the best also!!!

A hidden gem in the heart of Cary, NC.... Very fine Pakistani/Mediterranean cuisine .. our family of 12 people were driving to Ocean Isle,NC and stopped over to get some lunch. We ordered their Chicken Karahi, kabab platter and Halwa Puri Brunch. It was delicious....The owners, Yousaf and his wife are most hospitable people we have met.More

We have taken our parents to Kababish Cafe twice, and both times our experience has been excellent! They have by far the best biryani in the area, and their biryani can compete with any restaurant, even with any restaurant in India to be honest. The...rice and spices used are always fresh and the biryani has great flavor and is authentic and spicy. They also give you such generous portions, so definitely be ready to eat and take food home as well. The staff and owners are so nice and helpful. They also gave our Mom a rose for Mother's Day when we got take out from them! Highly recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed at all.More

Warm, friendly atmosphere. Excellent tasty food. One order was misunderstood and when that was discovered a quick apology and correction were cheerfully afforded us. Excellent personal service even while busy.

I thought it was average. Chicken 65 excellent, paleek paneer average and lamb rogenjosh was poor-simply lamb i tikka masala sauce poured on it. Wait staff not very attentive. At 845 pm on Saturday night only 20% full. When i left at 9 pm still...abbout 20 %. Notsure how they got their rating. I know good Indian food and this was not it.More

I stopped by because I read great reviews for Kababish Cafe and they were all spot on - this restaurant is delicious and the food didn't disappoint. I ordered the chicken tikka masala and it was full of flavor/spices and the portion size was perfect....The naan bread was also a great complement to the curry. Fantastic value for money. The wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly. I unfortunately don't live in the area but I would definitely come back and recommend to anyone in the area.More
