I’ve had Khan Kebabs bookmarked for awhile so we decided to give it a try for my last dinner in town. They do a mix of Pakistani, Afghani and Mediterranean food. You’ll find them in the same plaza as The Three Amigos and Pizza Unlimited & Fried Chicken.
A couple signs outside.
We dropped in on a Sunday evening (around 6:30pm) and it was busier than I anticipated. We had the (un)fortune of being seated behind a family of 10 that couldn’t handle their two crying kids. Service was friendly but oddly they don’t provide any real cutlery, plates or water for the table.
The menu consists of BBQ meats (chicken, beef, lamb and fish), mixed platters, family deals, chef’s specials, burgers & wraps and desserts.
They also have 5 lunch special options (12:00pm to 3:00pm). We were asked how spicy we wanted our dishes and opted for medium.
They have a large bowl of soup that is help yourself style. Homey and perfect to whet your appetite.
Chicken karahi (peshawari style) (#16) ($23.99 for 1/2kg)
This came with two pieces of naan. We were told 0.50kg option is good enough for two. Sauce had great flavour. Chicken was tender (with several pieces bone-in) but portion size seems small.
Tandoori butter chicken (#18) ($11.99)
Chicken breast cooked in creamy butter sauce. Sauce was slightly on the sweeter side and went well with the naan. Barely any pieces of chicken though. You’d expect more than 6 tiny pieces for the price.
Afghani/kabuli pulao (#19) ($14.99)
Rice and lamb with sweetened carrots and raisins. The lamb didn’t have any gamey flavour and unfortunately was dry. The rice was better executed. Serviceable but Afghan Chopin Kebab does it better.
Peshawari beef chapli kebab (#20) ($12.99 for 2)
This came with one piece of naan.
The mince beef patties were tasty but small. Again, small meat portions for the price point.
Chicken biryani (#21) ($11.99)
Rice with chicken, onion, mace and herbs. Chicken was tender and flavours were well balanced. This one even had a small kick in heat. Would get this again.
3x Mango lassi ($2.99)
You’ll find these in their drink fridge. One of the cheapest mango lassi’s I’ve seen in a long time. Smooth and good mango flavour.
Gulab jamun ($3.50 for 4)
These were cooked to order. L and C loved them and said these were some of the best that they’ve had. They came out hot; pleasant texture and not too sweet.
Definitely come with a group so that you can try a variety of dishes at KK.
