The Great Kabab Factory, Muscat, Oman – Where the Kabab is King!

Kabab Factory Sign  If you want to treat yourself and your loved ones to a good Indian restaurant in Muscat, I highly recommend The Kabab Factory.  It’s located in Al Khuwair near the Radisson Roundabout across from Safeer Suites.inside  We arrived at 7pm (when it opens) and had the place to ourselves until 8pm when others started arriving.beautiful decormenu 1  There are only a few choices at this restaurant: the vegetarian selection or the non-vegetarian.  For our first visit here, we all selected non-vegetarian.menu 2  I don’t know about you, but I love checking out menus from cover to cover to find out everything I can about a new restaurant.  (By the way “Hindukush” in the history above was India and its subcontinent as it was known at that time.)menu 3  They served us dish after dish and my stomache could barely take it all in!menu4  The bill for 3 of us came to 30 something. 40 rials with the tip.  Not bad for a good evening out at a great restaurant with incredible service.salad service  One of our friendly waiters serving up the saladbeverages  There are 6 kinds of smoothie-type beverages available, all at 1.2 OR each.seatingsignature kebab  The 1st Kabab we were served, Galouti Kabab, is the signature kabab of “The Great Kabab Factory” made with fine mince baby lamb, rare Indian herbs and spices, cooked on Mahi Tawa-traditional pan.  Quite spicy for me! but good!kebab 2 garlic naan  Garlic Naan! Unbelievably delicious bread!  Other Indian breads they are more than happy to serve you include: Tandoor Roti, Butter Naan, Plain Naan, Parantha and Roomali Roti.sauces  Different sauces available.  None overly spicy!kebab 3lamb chops  Barrah Kabab - Traditional Lamb Chops marinated with aromatic spices grilled in charcoal tandoor.another kebabwhat service  The waiters at The Great Kabab Factory were phenomenal!  They are ready to serve you all the bread you desire and if you wish to repeat any of the kababs, they are more than happy to fire you up another!spicy be gone  This drink may not look so great, but it was a life-saver!  This drink takes the spiciness out of some of the dishes! (A must for the sensitive types out there like yours truly!  :-) )lentil soups  I must say that by the time they brought these 2 lentil soups (dhal), I was pretty stuffed.Biryani  The last dish, before dessert, was the Biryani.kebaby factory chefs  The friendly chefs who really outdid themselves on this evening!desserts  Finally, a selection of different Indian desserts which we enjoyed with coffee after our meal.  Gulab Jamnun-deep fried dumplings of condensed milk dipped in hot sweetened syrup, Rasmalai-flattened dairy dumplings soaked in sweet saffron flavoured milk, Moong Dal Halwa-lentils cooked with clarified butter and sugar and Kesari Phirni-traditional rice pudding flavored with saffron.tada  Overall, we were quite impressed with the food and service at The Great Kabab Factory.  It might be a bit pricier than some places out there, but we felt that it was well worth it for such an enjoyable evening out.

  5. andy, went there the other night 26 july 2012, surely it’s not pricy. we had a great meal, as much as we could eat, and it only cost RO10 each, the same price as i paid at the Jungle and that was for a fraction of the food.
    keep up the good work.
