Thinking Chanab Kabab was going to have Middle East fare, I was a little disappointed to discover the place served Indian food. The place serves its food buffet style and a pair of nice ladies keep the line stocked. The food was not the best...Indian I have had but it was still a nicer option than the fast food places in the same shopping center.More

We were in town for a softball tournament and happened upon this place after looking for the closest place to eat to where we were staying. I’m so glad we stopped here. The owner was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The food was excellent and...very flavorful. If you’re willing to step outside your comfort zone, this place is a must try. The buffet was an excellent choice, as it gave you samples of different foods. We will definitely stop here again if we’re in the area.More

Great home style customer service and ample food portions! The samosas were a surprise 5 star appetizer: moist and great filling inside and just enough crunch on the outside with out the super oily coating in others I’ve tried; they ran out of lamb chops...but the chicken kabobs were deliciously spiced and quite savory! Awesome rice pudding, maybe because is was warm and comforting. Unfortunately I did not have room to try their baklava.More

I would give Chanab Kabob zero stars if I could. After waiting an hour for a 30-40 minute delivery, I called to ask what was the delay, only to discover these idiots delivered the food to my neighbors (who deny having accepted the food). After...expressing my dissatisfaction over this, the manager refused to re-deliver my order (to my correct address) free of charge, and hung up on me before I could even ask to be refunded. After my calling back to ask to have the order cancelled and refunded, he hung up on me again when I tried explaining to him how poorly he handled the situation and how it is bad business to upset one's customers. I can only assume the food is horrible, but I'll never know because I never got my order and I refuse to be patron at Chanab Kabob ever again. Strongly recommend looking elsewhere for Pakistani/Indian food.More

I was pretty excited because the food smelled delicious and I was starving but the lamb kabob was overcooked and it was very little meat for the price, mostly rice and bread.

So this place kinda looks like a dump and it is BUT I have to say I like the place for its food. I'm not sure I've ever paid the same price twice for the buffet but I don't really care as it's a family...owned place and I'm sure they could use the money. If you're really looking for a quick Indian food place and don't mind the setting, then it's not bad at all.More

I actually like this place although they don't really pack in the customers. It's a full time buffet place (but they do special menu items as well). It's great for a lunch or quick dinner. Atmosphere is zip...don't go there for that. It's an in...and out place. This is somewhere between Average and Very good.More

I'm surprised that there aren't more reviews for this place. The lady who runs the restaurant is very nice and welcoming, but in the end this is a restaurant; the quality of the food is way below average, the place is dirty and dated, which...isn't a big deal if the food is good. However, what worries me is that the food seems to be as old as the place. They also have a hoarding problem, random bottles of ranch dressing, old hot sauce bottles, and cans of Pringles chips clutter the place. They also have one or two of about 20 different types of bottled/canned drinks. I suspect the owner is a hoarder. This place is very very strange, but most importantly, the food is terrible at best.More

Had the buffet with my wife. Nothing is labeled but everything was good. I tried things I have never had before and did not regret. They serve on paper plates and you eat with plastic utensils but hey, for $9.99 and all you can eat...who cares. Give it a try when you want something different. The naan is really good but came out a little late.More
