I love middle eastern cuisine and have sporadically eaten here (about 5-6 times/year) over the last 7 years. Today's visit will be my last. Not because the food is bad; it's still good. But they have gotten chinsier (sp?) and chinsier with their portions and are sometimes rude. I take it to go b/c I'm always on the run. It used to be they would give you lots of rice. Today, as the guy filled only one side of the to-go box with rice, then removed some to make sure that one side didn't have too much, I asked for a little more. He asked if I was going to pay more. I said no, but I'm not taking the other stuff that comes with it either (3 other things that come on the buffet mix). Sorry sir. No problem. I took extra napkins (about 4 inches worth) - silly person, the napkins cost more than the rice and everything else on the platter (which is why places now have 1-sheet napkin dispensers or keep them behind the register) and he lost my business forever.

I used to go here once a week when I lived/worked in the area. They are now open 24 hours and attract all sorts of people - cab drivers, office workers, partiers, etc. I usually get the boneless chicken that comes with rice, salad, and a side or two. Sometimes I get the palace combo that consists of chicken and beef. Make sure you are ready to wait 15 min or so for your food if you don't call ahead.

My hubby and I frequent this place since the mid-late 90's. As the previous commentor describes, the ambience is pretty boring, but the food is great!

I recommend the bone-in chicken (more moist). Also, you must try the Chickpea dal! It's the best I've ever had. The spinach side is good too.

On weekends they serve Haleem which is a great substitue if you're tired of kabobs.

Hidden behind a 7-11 on Eads Street near the Days Inn is a little non-descript kinda place that happens to serve the most heavenly Pakistani Take-out food on Earth.

You walk in and there is a menu board up above you, and some foods already to go in the small deli-type case. There are Formica tables throughout the small place and a few folks stay to eat there, but the vast majority of the business is take-out. There's a big.. I mean huge.. mural on the back wall but other than that the place is pretty stark.

You don't come for the ambiance, you come for the food.

Remember the Soup Natzi from Seinfeld? Well, that's pretty much how it is here. You better know what you want by the time you get to the register. I love it.

They are mainly a Kabob joint, thus the name Kabob Palace. I went with the Number 1, which is a Boneless Chicken Kabob for $6.95. All the food has the most delicious Indian seasonings permeating the meat and come with rice which is topped with your choice of whatever they have that day. I asked for both toppings. heh. That day was a Spinache concoction and a Chic Pea concoction (Kubali Chana). Both were just to die for! These are thick, chunky, gravy like deals. The food may not look like that much, but I could not finish a third of mine. Very filling! Oh yeah, they all also come with a thick version of parathi (bread) to roll your food in or to dip into the Kubli Chana.

Close your eyes and savor every bite. It's that kinda place and that kind of wonderful food. 4 high stars.

PROS: Very cheap, very good
CONS: it isn't right next door to me
