From the reviews I saw of Kebabs on the Grill, it is supposed to be the best Indian restaurant in Shanghai! I went to their new location on Huangpi Road. The decor is ordinary, nothing particularly Indian about it. The most important, of course, is the food. It seems like they just use one sauce for everything. It's an ok sauce but that's not really the right way to make high quality Indian food. I thought the Indian bread was pretty good though. And the service from an Indian guy and a Chinese girl was quite good. If the service was not as good then I would give it 2 stars.
For the prices of Kebabs on the Grill the food should be better.

One of the best places for non-vegetarian kebabs. I they they have the best chicken tikkas, kebabs in any Indian restaurant in china. Vegetarian dishes are not that great. Garlic Nan's are great too. Definetly a place to visit again and again.

Following 2 months of travelling through the Philippines we landed in Shanghai hopeful for a decent Indian meal.....thanks to a search engine we decided to try Kebabs on the Grille at "The Cool Dock" in Shanghai.

The curries we had (Kadhai and Tikka Masala) were excellent: not greasy and really tasty. The naan bread and rice were excellent too. Staff, atmosphere, pricing, everything really was very good, so good that we decided to try their sister branch in Central Plaza. Again we were not disappointed, everything was excellent.

For 2 curries, 1 x rice, 2 x naan, 2 pints of Tiger we paid around 250cny however they have some excellent deals (set menus and up to 50% off for early diners on weekdays) at their newer Central branch.

We are from London and really enjoy a curry or five a week so we were delighted to find Kebabs on the Grille.

Invited to dine at the Kebabs on the grille, which lies inside a refurbished courtyard with other restaurants and cafe's. Delicious food, various dishes and reasonable priced. Get a taxi that knows the address otherwise you won't find it.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Food is quite good. It is a bit off the beaten track, but cab drivers should be able to get you there.
