I came here since I was craving indian food and this place was recommended by a client who’s from India. When I got here and saw the place dead empty I must say I thought I got the wrong place (and to this day, I’m not sure). The curries are good, although not authentic (just one generic type of curry).... More

My first review of this restaurant was in December 2014 and I liked it a lot then. In the past one year or so I believe the owner has changed or has decreased his involvement in this location and the quality of food has worsened. On one of my visits I ordered daal which was not completely cooked and I... More

We recently ordered Kebab Factory from Seamless and we were so happy with the meal we received. The price is pretty decent for Indian food and the quality was excellent - the portion sizes were also generous. They offered a coupon through seamless for the vegetarian samosas, which were mild and delicious. To me, the highlights of the meal were... More

Disaster trying to make a large order through GrubHub. I called the restaurant when the order was 15 minutes late and they assured the food was on the way. I called again when the food was 40 minutes late and they admitted it had not been sent. This may be a nice place to visit, but forget takeout/delivery orders based... More

We placed an order for delivery. It arrived quickly and hot. Delicious garlic Naan. Chicken Tika masala and fried cauliflower were excellent. Plenty of rice.

I'm not super knowledgeable about Indian food, but I was excited to try The Kebab Factory. It was delicious. A very large menu with great descriptions. The staff is very friendly and helpful too. We had the butter chicken, mixed kebab (lamb, chicken, shrimp), and garlic flat bread. All was incredibly delicious and huge portions. I'll be back soon!

I may be Indian and it may make my standards of Indian food both biased and high, but I believe while Kabab Factory did a good job with their chicken tandoor dish and shrimp. The other dishes were lacking some essential flavors to make it great. A decent sized selection of food. But I would try another location. Will update... More

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at the Kebab Factory. Everything was terrific but I especially loved the lamb kebabs, saag paneer and garlic nan. This is a tiny place, so it fills up on busy nights. The earlier you go, the easier it is to get a table.

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. The food is delicious and cheap. You get large portions and a lot of taste. The place is always clean and service is great!
