This is one of the better Indian restaurants on Hong Kong island.

If you are craving good Indian food, this place scores highly - their set menu (about HKD 268 pp for salad, 3 flavors of lassi, 5 kebabs, curry, daal, breads, rice and desserts) is fantastic value. You can chose from the veg or non veg set option, and enjoy free-flow of any of the dishes that catch your fancy. They change their fixed menu frequently, and are even accommodating if you request for a slight variation in the set options that they offer.

Highly recommend the chicken 65, fish peri peri and their butter chicken. Not too crazy about the desserts though, which is just as well, cos we always end up stuffing ourselves on starters and main course. The plain lassi is very good too.

The decor is nice, but something about it feels a bit run down already. The service is average... so I can't say that the overall "experience" is great...

RECOMMENDED: Located on the 19th floor of this central location, it has nice views of the hillside. We took this in after my fav Central Indian closed. The setting is quite nice for a date night or business dinner. This location is the 2nd for the owner and opened early 2013 (I'm not a fan of their first location which is inside a shopping mall).

The prime menu is a fixed price offering of various dishes. Think Tapas style. The dishes came out quickly and explained by the wait staff. The menu follows a line for veggie and non-veggie (choose one). This is likely a good value, but it's a lot of food.

There is a separate menu as well and the wine list is nice and not overly priced.

This isn't your typical Indian restaurant, think more Indian fusion and thus if you're up for something new this would be a good place to take in. The chef clearly takes great care in the preparation. Note that the spice level is slightly more tuned to the non-Indian palate.

Service was OK, OK is the best you can expect in HK as wait staff is a generic problem for nearly all restaurants.

During our weekday visit the manager was working the tables and it was clear he was eager to ensure you had a nice evening.

Spectacular food. Great quality, superb location, efficient service. The flavours were authentic yet distinct. One of the finest Indian food I have had outside India. Its clearly one of my top Indian food experiences. Great ambience and the price in comparison is pretty good. They have some great thali/buffet deals, if one can eat enough. A must visit while in HK.

i had a lovely experience at The Great Indian Kebab Factory, Central and i would rather say that, this was one of my best eating experiences so far in Hong Kong. I visited the factory last week and it was beautiful at the first look itself and the manager was very enthusiastic and had a big smile on his face....i got one of the window tables and it looks beautiful from there. it was a bright sunny afternoon and then the service staff suggested me to go for traditional Thali set lunch.
it has got four courses starting with Tomato Dhaniya Shorba (Soup) accompanied with curried bread stick and it was full of flavors. and then it was the kebab course the heart of factory.
I loved the chicken tikka and my friend enjoyed the Basil Paneer tikka.
It was really a creative mind set of chefs who were actually working hard and fusing beautiful flavors of western cuisine into Indian food.
then in the third course i was served with a beautiful looking thali meal which comprised of 6-7 different dishes and i loved every bit of it.
In the last dessert course it was amazing to have Halwa (Semolina Pudding) loaded with nuts and rose champagne sorbet.
I truly say that i have dined in variety of indian restaurants all over the Hong kong but this would be the best among all others..... and i am not a food critic either but what i expected, it exceeded all my expectations.
It is a must go place. and lastly the chef came up to our table, taking out his time just to check whether we were satisfied.
I am waiting for my next visit to Kebab factory and will write up soon about it too...

Yet again a classic presentation of food and Service by The Great indian kebab factory team members !!!! but this time at their new branch at Hong Kong, Central. Me and my friends were delighted with the new menu of kebabs and the the way it was prepared was a class apart from any other Indian restaurant in Hong kong. After my couple visit to Kebab factory, TST. This was my first visit to Kebab factory, central and we were amazed with the beautiful view and decor of the restaurant. It was really good to see the waiting staff explaining each course properly and suggesting suitable chutneys for various kebab courses. My friends visited me from Australia and they were happy to gulp few of the best cocktails from the newly and interestingly (names) designed wine list.
Mine favorite was "O Patiyala" which tosses you back to Punjab and bring the memoirs back.
I had lovely time and will definitely come back again. I am gonna be a strong fan follower for Kebab Factory. This place is worth dining in Hong Kong.
Thanks to team and keep exceeding expectations.....
Will visit you guys soon...... :)
