Authentic nawabi khana conjures up images of delectable, succulent kababs, aromatic biryanis, and delicious desserts , exotic spices worthy to be on the table of the luxury loving Nawabs. For guests looking for an authentic ethnic experience, The Great Kabab Factory, even after 19 odd years, remains a go-to destination. Each day, the award-winning restaurant  serves one by one six different enticing hot vegetarian and non-vegetarian kebabs prepared in six different styles, as well as curries, breads and biryani. The kebabs are shortlisted from TGKF’s vast repository of more than 450 recipes, many of them passed down across generations, to offer a new culinary experience daily. Guests can enjoy unlimited portions at a fixed price in a comfortable environment. The focus is on complex marinades and cooking methods that add flavor, distinction and style to the kebabs.

While dining in TGKF, a guest would get the feel of dining within a virtual food factory. Even the cutlery resembles factory tools and the metal serving dishes are all factory like.The staff wears dungarees to highlight the fact that they are all like factory workers. An open kitchen allows guests to enjoy the feel of eating within a factory premises.

A different menu is set here each day and the guests are served unlimited servings of each dish, either vegetarian or non-vegetarian which include the ever favorite signature Kababs Galouti and Burrah. 

While I am a hardcore non-vegetarian, my dining partner was vegetarian, so I could relish all the food items served on our dining day. TGKF is not known as a Kabab Haven without a reason.  We were served melt in the mouth Galouti Kababs (both vegetarian and non-vegetarian), Pudina Jheenga , very well cooked Ghost Seekh Kababs, Murg Tikka, Punjabi Chooza, Peshawari Murgh Tikka and Patiala Fish Fry.  Enough to satiate even the die hard carnivore, that is me. But I have to admit, the vegetarian fare was as good as non vegetarian. My partner was served Achari Paneer Tikka, Kashmiri Aloo, never tasted before Bharwan Litchi Kababs, Moong Mirch ki Tikki, Taza Phalon ki Chaat.

For the main course, there was choice between Subz and Murgh Biryani, and after sampling I found the Murgh Biryani to be just out of the world, two types of Dals : Yellow Lentils and Black, Aloo Mutter and Dalchini Ghost.  Though the Kabab is the king here, the mouth watering desserts definitely come a close second. A wide array of desserts to round up a scrumptious dinner were laid before us. They included Tinka Kulfi, hot Gulab Jamun, Chenna Payesh, Fruit Kheer and Jalebi with Rabri.

If you haven’t visited The Great Kabab Factory yet, I strongly recommend that you make it your next food destination.
