This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
This firm Southside favourite is more of a dressed-up canteen than a restaurant. There is a relaxed atmosphere in this brightly lit, booze-free diner. It offers authentic ‘desi’ style cooking and a selection meats from the feature charcoal grill. Although clearly a favourite with local families, newcomers are given plenty of advice and help from the detailed menu. The choices have been revamped recently, with some of the dishes now labeled as ‘new’. Grills such as the superbly spicy fish tikka, or the chicken boti (made with chicken thigh meat, better suited to char-grilling than breast meat) are served with a sauce and salad selection that includes jalapenos for an added kick. The main curry sauces are freshly spiced and thickened with layers of sweated down vegetables. The result is an overall lightness to the meal. Better food than many Indian restaurants, but at canteen prices.
Simple, desi (or country) style cooking is the order of the day at Kebabish – although the grill flames, flashing with sparks of oil, add urban flare to the local streetscape. The spit-roasted baby chicken is the show-stealer. There’s not much to it – a few spices and some hot sauce – but the result is soft, yielding meat beneath a charcoal-crisped skin. The machli grill, spiced fish pieces, are also a good appetiser, and the traditional on-the-bone curries such as karahi and nehari offer tantalising Punjabi flavours. While the curries don’t suffer from travelling, the grills are best enjoyed as quickly as possible as their journey in a box means they get a bit of extra steaming – but it’s all still good.
