THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Food Factory Restaurant Review

: This second location of Food Factory is polished up and clean, and resembles a tea room more than an ethnic restaurant. But that hasn’t affected the flavors and menu choices. Less crowded than its Arlington site, this place nonetheless draws in big lunch crowds for the very abundant buffet featuring curries, lentils, rice, and salads plus their fabulous fresh breads. Weekend specials include haleem, nehari, and paya (spicy pig’s trotters). But just as pleasing are their standard dishes, especially the chilied chapli kabob cooked over charcoal and wrapped in fresh-baked tandoor bread. Also terrific: the restaurant’s various curries and dals. We challenge anyone to find better kabobs or more fiery curries at these bargain prices.
