A dinner or Lunch at the Great Kebab Factory, a unit of Radisson Blu at Chennai is always something I look forward to. It surely is fun, different, and above all tasty. For a thousand hundred rupees, there's a Salad and an orientation of the concept to start, and then--when you're ready for the main course - the servers start coming to your table with a range of Kebabs. There are many different cuts of meat prepared in various ways, lamb, poultry, fish, Prawns for the Non Veggies while the Kebabs, Potatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Patties and even a fruit kebab are the spread for the veggies.
The servers, in their factory overhaul costumes, keep coming around with the list of delicacies in the order of the menu and you can stop them to repeat any at will and eat all you want.
My all-time favorite here is the Galouti Kebab, the signature dish of this place - a patty made of minced lamb, flavored with an assortment of spices. This is served on an Indian bread and the best way to eat them is to spread the kebab over the bread, add a dash of the mint chutney to it, possibly an onion strand, roll it like a Frankie and bite into the amazing experience.
Chef Dheeraj, the man behind the Galouti is an unassuming man, who comes around the tables getting feedback of his masterpiece.
The Kebabs are accompanied by a couple of drinks – a welcome drink and a glass of masala butter milk, which I thought was a thoughtful combination to ease out the masala tinge. The Kebabs are followed by a bread basket and two gravys, one of the specialties here is the Black Dal. Following the breads are rounds of Hyderabadi biryani, which is a dish of the Nawabs, and quite tasty at that.
Dessert, in the highly unlikely event you have room, is an amazing spread of 6 varieties. These again are unlimited and you can help yourself to all you can throwing the caution of a cholesterol overload to the winds for a day.
If there is anything that can improve here, it would possibly be the price – especially for someone who is not a Kebab lover. Otherwise, on the whole, I would rate this as a ‘Must Try’ at least once, and for the Kebab lover like me, it is possibly a regular watering hole.
