Our visit to the Kababish was fabulous. We were made very welcome upon arrival and our table was ready on time. All staff were very attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and our table was ready on time despite the restaurant being extremely busy. Our food was beautiful albeit very different from what you might call a "traditional" indian meal; the meat was cooked really well and the vegetable side dish was amazing with a myriad of tastes. Well worth a visit and a visit we will make again. Thank you.

We all really enjoyed our meal last Saturday. The food was good and service was excellent. We were well looked after and will definitely visit again. I was glad that we booked early for 6pm as it became very busy and a bit noisy when large tables were arriving when we left. The Kababish was fully booked as it is very popular and I can see why so just make sure that you book well in advance so you are not disappointed.

Excellent food and service at a good price.Only downside was we were packed into the restaurant and the tables were close together making it very noisy so you couldn't hear each other speak or hold much of a conversation (not a good place for a first date maybe?) and the table for 2 was so small that when the dishes you ordered arrived they didn't fit on the table which meant you could barely move which was a shame because this is a lovely place.

Booked online for 8pm just for 3 of us. Have been there many, many times and always found the food lovely. Staff are friendly and helpful. On this occasion though, I must say we were rushed through every course, even my glass of wine with one slurp left was swiftly taken away before I had chance to stop it. The table of young ladies, next to us was left alone, so I didn't see why we were being pestered!

Excellent food, really good especially considering the amount of people who were also having the mothers day menu, faultless. They brought us out the wrong desserts, but this was fixed with a kind courteous smile. They were accommodating with our 1 year old, both in terms of sorting out the pram and being nice to our daughter. Excellent.

As usual the food was delicious - five of us dined and we all thoroughly enjoyed our menu choices. One member of our party is watching her weight and asked if they would cook a low fat option of her favourite dish. This was no problem for the chef and he produced a very tasty low fat chicken tikka Dupiaza Well done Kababish - keep up the high standards.

Service is good. Ordered 3 starters sharing between 2 of us. All 3 dishes came on a large plate as a platter. Idea was good since we were sharing but lack of presentation. For the main course, we had 2 mains, 1 side, 1 rice & 1 naan. The mains and side dishes were not pipping hot and overall the colour of the dishes did not look attractive. Salt content is quite high on all dishes. Rating it a '4' is because of the pleasant service.

The staff were,as always, very attentive,but not intrusive - our meals were delicious - hot and tasty! We were able to take our time and chatted as we finished our bottle of wine. It was a very hot night and many of the staff, if not all were no doubt fasting - I commend them! Thankyou.

Overall the food was very tasty, and reasonably priced. There was a chicken bone in one of the dishes that shouldn't have been there. When we were sat at the table by a staff member we were not asked if we would like a drink, and had to wait 15 mins before we were asked. The 1st request for the bill at the end of the meal was ignored. And took over 20 mins before we were acknowledged again.

Good was excellent but only negative side was how rushed we were from start to finish.as soon as menus were given we was asked what we would like.After asking for more time the staff hung around the table and kel asking.The resturant was fairly busy but by no means full or anywhere near so its not like they was waiting for the table

Service very good, food excellent. Having booked on line I phoned to check the reservation was in order as I'd not received a confirmation email, to find that they didn't get the booking. Maybe this should be reviewed to avoid potential disappointment to their customer.

Always good food and service, as we have moved to Devon it was as we expected first class service and top quality food as we remembered. The owner Sid always over sees all areas so the overall experience is second to none.

I was surprised by how busy the restaurant was, bearing in mind it was only 6.00 pm on a Wednesday evening. However, the staff the very attentive and the food was excellent. Only slight gripe was that drinks were very expensive, accounting for approximately 40% of the final bill.

We had a great evening at Kababish. The service was second to non as always. All of the staff are extremely cheerful and helpful. I found the vegetarian curry we ordered to lack the extra spice we asked for. However all in all the dishes ordered were very tasty.

Excellent service and excellent food. We were seated quickly and given plenty of time to place our food order, once we had ordered our drinks. Not once did we feel pressured to hurry up. Will definitely be returning.

Nice place but menu a bit confusing. Non of the traditional dishes were there. We ordered a hot dish and a mild one but they were very similar and nothing special. A glass of coke cost £2.50...a bit much!. Staff were pleasant and attentive but we wouldn't go back.

Busy and good food, great range of beers (drought and bottled) and decent selection of authentic food (vegetarian especially good) tables have been seperated further than before but still a tad small but it's a minor point.

This was our first visit to Kababish. The food was good, it's a nice space and the staff were very pleasant. I have given it 4 out of 6 because it was a bit overpriced and I have had nicer food for a similar price elsewhere.
