We are a family of 4, 2 children (4 and 5) and we had a great meal. Even the children liked the special flavors of Indian cuisine. If we come back to Providence, we will come back to eat from Kabob and curry.

Outstanding flavor and great service in a college town eatery. Comfortable prices, iced teas in different flavors. Clearly a hit with students but also a favorite for visiting parents.

I got the chicken tikka masala, naan, and a mango lassi. The food was great--I especially enjoyed the naan. The curry sauce the chicken came in was a little on the thinner side, but still very tasty. The lassi was okay, but somewhat watered down....More
