Eastern Kabob & Sweets Restaurant Review

: In its nondescript mall location, this Pakistani place is a most surprising little enterprise. Yes, it does offer a mini buffet table with a sound assortment of meats, vegetable curries and breads. But don’t hesitate to order off the menu, where you will find such authentic dishes as the chapli kabob, more resembling a hamburger than meat cubes and seasoned with a generous dash of fiery chilies. Its side of chickpeas pairs well, and the very good garlic naan makes a fitting add on. In fact, check out all the kabob offerings, and consider the chef’s specials, too, such as goat curry and lamb vindaloo. Vegetarians are not forgotten with options of several different dahls and all-veg plates. Desserts include a short list of Indian sweets, kulfi (Indian ice cream) and gulab jamun (fried cheese squares in rosewater) among them. Complement your food with a soda, tea or yogurt drink.
