Fast, friendly service and good food, a little different from the standard "Indian" fare. Licensed too, which is a bonus. Best onion bhajis I've had.
Varied menu and and staff are excellent if you're not quite sure what you want. They are also flexible if you want to vary the how spicy your dish is in any way.
My whole party loved this place. We are coming back next week. Great curry and attentive staff
For 8pm on a Saturday we had great food, it was a good atmosphere with the restaurant packed and everyone enjoying themselves, but even though it was busy service was friendly and prompt.
We dined at 5.45pm on a Thursday evening, having made an online reservation...it's fair to say we were the only diners at that time! Service was very welcoming & we were shown to our table. High quality interior decorations and fixtures/fittings. Menu is well-presented and there is plenty of choice. Service was very prompt & efficient but not overpowering...they weren't hovering to clear up as soon as you finished the last mouthful, nor did we sit for an eternity waiting to be served. The quality (& quantity) of food was excellent - clearly all freshly prepared and piping hot. Overall, the bill for three of us - starters, main & drinks came to just over £50 - yes, you can probably get cheaper meals elsewhere, but if you're looking for something just a step or two up from "cheap & cheerful" then you won't be disappointed here.
Excellent meal. Lovely surroundings. The food was timely and tasty. We had a variety of dishes including fish, chicken and lamb, and all were cooked well. Would have been a perfect score, but the positioning of the tables meant I couldn't exit my seat due to a woman seated very close to me on my right. Also, would be great to offer some less sugar-heavy juices and mocktails. Finally, some sort of strategy or negotiations re: parking as it's nigh impossible. Special mention re: the waiter, Farid, who provided an impeccable level of service with organising an easier access table for an elderly member of the party, and helped them up and assisted to the door later, offered thoughtful menu suggestions and was generally incredibly attentive and polite. Clean, well-kept toilets. Would definitely return!
My first visit to this charming restaurant. A really nice location, the food was really great - at last an indian restaurant where you can taste the spices! - and the environment is pretty good. The service was rather patchy, especially considering the place wasn't anywhere near its full capacity, We had to find a waiter to take our drinks order and we also ordered popadoms that never arrived, but I'll definitely be back to give them a second chance.
Food was great but service not so. We were left ages before ordering and had to get staff'should attention on number of occasions. Seemed plenty of staff just not very organised. Also, a wrong dish was brought out so one of us had to wait for the right one to be made. Then the waiter knocked over a glass of wine when putting down the meals and had to be asked to replace it rather than him apologisingo and offering. May have been an off night but it was a shame as the food is very good.
Always our favourite spot, Kababish never fails on service, quality of food and décor. They staff are charming and efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. Fresh ingredients are used to create a delicious array of dishes. Two of us are vegetarian and there is an extensive choice on offer. The surroundings are warm and welcoming and we never feel rushed or neglected.
Haven't been to the kababish for a fair few years, but stepping back in, nothing had changed. Great atmosphere. Great staff. And food that was amazing. I've recommended this place to everyone i know for years but had not been myself and I must say it lived up to the reviews. Almost certainly will be eating there again soon.
