This restaurant used to be pretty good, but they changed management. It's just okay now. The selection is so-so and the food tastes alright, but someone I went with had a tummy ache after (I think the just weren't used to Indian food, though, but you never know!).

What a service! Worse place ever! It was my first time. I walked into this restaurant for take outs. While I was asking some questions to the waiter, he smells alcohol. The waiter was DRUNK. I just walked out from this restaurant. I was told this place is under new management and have a good food, but I will never go back again.

Pros: waste of time

Cons: worse place ever!

This Indian restaurant was recently taken over by new management. The standard of customer service has improved greatly but unfortunately the quality of the food has slipped. The food is rather mediocre and unauthentic. Plus they have raised the prices to the point that I feel it is just too expensive to dine here, even with the coupons that are in the local magazines.

Sorry, I cannot recommend Kabab Curry any more. Reviewers are better off dining at nearby Addi's Tandoori, Red Fort and Angara instead.

New management recently took over this restaurant. The customer service is a lot better but the food quality has slipped plus they have raised the prices. I used to go here on a fairly regular basis but I am less likely now with the new management. There are much better Indian restaurants in the area such as Red Fort and Angara Indian Restaurant.

As an Indian who has probably eaten in over 500 Indian restaurants worldwide, I can say I disagree with the prior reviewer. This Nothern Indian restaurant will not be confused with some of the best that I've eaten in but it is far from poor. Favorites such as tikka masala, chicken tandoori, daal and naans were well prepared. For the more divergent types, I would try shahi paneer, bhindi masala, or the fish tandoori. Shahi paneer is a dish made from homemade cheese. Their cheese texture was a perfect consistency. It was not like fried tofu in some places nor was it the beaded ricotta type you find in others. I like it with a slightly sweeter taste so I asked for extra cashews and raisins.Kabab Curry's chicken tikka masala recipe contains a little more cream so it's richer and more filling. It was well prepared for this type of style. The tikka was not dried out and was real tikka. Many places try and save money by using inferior cuts of meat. My belief is that tikka (small cuts) must be done from the breast of the chicken not a thigh or back. This restaurant adheres to this ideal. The restaurant utilizes different fish on different days in their tandoori fish. I like it when they use catfish because this type of fish stands up more to the intense heat of the tandoor and the oilyness of it produces a great taste/texture. The most important thing in tandoori cooking is not to overcook and Kabab Curry did not so it was not dry.

As anyone who eats Indian food knows, preparation varies widely and that variance is what makes a particular restaurant unique. The restaurant has recently changed management and chef so do not expect the exact same taste as you had previously. I love to follow the restaurant scene in general so I know the new owner from some of his previous ventures including Curry Express in the early 90's and Shalimar of Culver City for nearly 10 years before he sold. Both were solid. I look forward to reading what others think of this spot.

Cons: little pricey at dinner time

My husband and I have been in the restauranat business for over 12 years and love trying different, exotic and exciting foods from around the world and suppoting owner-operated restaurants. We live in the area nearby and we used to be regulars at Kabab Curry and the food was always very good especially the Saag Paneer. Unfortunately the restaurant has been sold recently and is now under new ownership & management. We have since gone back a few times and I must say that we are extremelly disappointed. We were craving Indian food again and went there for dinner last night. We ordered vegetarian samosas, garlic bread, the baigan bharta and saag paneer. The vegetarian samosas were very small in size compared to what you get at other Indian restaurants and had absolutely no flavor. It also arrived at our table in just a few minutes after we placed our order, leading us to believe that they were heated in a microwave. Once we tried we noticed that the crust was lacking the usual crispiness of a good samosa. The Saag Paneer was good however the Baigan Bharta was extremelly salty. We hoped for a waiter to come check on us so we could mention how bad the dish was. Sadly, no one ever checked on our table. When we were leaving and asking for the check, we were finally able to complain to the waiter who apologized and said that it will not happen again (but who is to say?). The new owner, who was on premises, never came to our table to apologize and did not take the Baigan Bharta (which was so bad we could not eat at all) off of our bill. Before we left we heard the party seating next to us complaining that the rice they had been served tasted like "fridge" and was unnaceptable. For the price they charge you would expect much better food and better service. If they continue this way, they will loose the clientele that the first owner was able to build and who has been supportive of the new owners 'till now. Needless to say that we are never going back. Run - don't walk.

Cons: Slow Service/Small Portions/Expensive for what you get

the food here is very good and I pride myself in trying every Indian restaurant that I see. It is a little pricey compared to others in the South Bay but friendly and great service. Not a 'romantic' place for a date. But if your goal is good food - this is a good option.

I have friends that call it their favorite...and they've been in the SouthBay for many years.

The food here is fabulous! I am confused by the reviewer who says there are no vegetarian options. I am a vegetarian, and this is arguably one of the best Indian restaurants in L.A....period. My favorite dishes are vegetable korma, saag paneer and baigan bharta. The service is friendly, but not always fast. In fact, you will probably have to flag someone down to tell them you need more water. However, the food is always amazing. I have suggested this restaurant to many people and none of them have been disappointed. Try it and discover delicious, authentic Indian food at its best.

This used to be a great Indian restaurant and we would go here all the time. Recently, it seems to have gone down hill a little bit, but it is still pretty decent.

This restaurant is located in Rolling Hills Plaza and I tried this place for lunch. During lunch, they have a lunch buffet for about $10. I'm not an expert at Indian food, so I can't really compare it to any other types of food I had. Overall, the food selection was okay, but I expected a little more. A few hours later, my stomach felt a little queasy, I think that was due to the yogurt in their dishes.

I'm thinking that last reviewer doesn't know how to read a menu. The following are available vegetarian dishes: Baingan Bartha, Malai Kofta, Bhindi Masala, Dam Alu, Vegetable Korma, Vegetable Jalfarezi, Shaki Paneer, Alu Matter, Saag Paneer, Mutter, Paneer, Mushroom Mutter, Alu Gobi, Alu Saag, Channa Masala,, Daal Makhani. This is just from the Vegetable section, to this one can add Naan, Biryani, soup, salad, Raita. Honestly I don't understand where that senseless last review is coming from. They probably had one bad experience and are trying to "get even". Whatever...

This place is great for vegeatarians and meat eaters alike. It is easily among the best Indian food in the South Bay. The ambience may be stark but the food more than makes up for it. My only complaint is that when it gets busy the servers can get swamped.

This place is not a good restraunt for the vegetarians. For them, there was nothing much to eat. No desserts and no fruits for all you can eat buffet. The service sucks. You had to ask for almost everything. P.S. WARNING: If you want good Indian food don't come here. Go somewhere else. Overall, this place is not recommendable.

The food here is not bad but choice of dishes for all-you-can-eat buffet ($ 8.95)is very limited, lacking any kind of appetizers, samosas, pakoras etc. Those are extra as well as indian tea with milk which is $1.95 per small cup. I know many other indian all-you-can-eat places which have much better selection and cost much less. The owners probably think Torrance is Beverly Hills...I am not going there again.
