....and non-vegetarians

FIRST THINGS first. You won't get better kababs than this on the other side of Yamuna. Karim's may have just opened an outlet in Noida and many others joined the fray but the stuff offered by Radisson's Great Kabab Factory in Noida's upmarket Sector 18, is without a parallel. This is no personal opinion stemming from an individual's choice but an assertion backed by the fact that within a week of the new, swanky eatery being inaugurated, local residents have started driving down in droves. Cometh the evening, cometh the crowd. And cometh the kababs, sumptuous, finger-licking stuff. The sort that melt in the mouth, fall off the forks and spoons. Truth to tell, ignore the knives and the forks they so politely place on the table. It is a Mughlai offering. Enjoy it the way it was meant to be. That is without these extra helpings. Just finger to the mouth. The traditional way, the Indian way.

The restaurant offers a rich variety of kababs. It is claimed that there are more than 120 varities on offer with five varieties being presented with each meal. Needless to say most of them are non-vegetarian. But the increase in quantity is not at the expense of quality.

The kababs are all hot, simmering. Neither too fried, nor a little less heated. They are just fine. The best of the lot being the Galoti kababs which the chef Ghanim Bin Hairat, lays a store by.

The restaurant can seat up to 78 people. It is a sit-in buffet which besides kababs also serves biryani, dals and vegetable dishes. That it has clicked with the local people hungry for top-notch non-vegetarian stuff can be made out from the fact that it is advised to phone-in and reserve a table before sauntering in. The service here may be polite but the waiting can be tedious. So better plan, prepare, reserve and come.

The Great Kabab Factory is adjacent to Super Stars which is much bigger in size than conventional restaurant and can seat around 150 people.
