With COVD-19 cases peaking and our spirits dwindling, talking about a restaurant may sound strange to some extent, but the Great Kabab Factory is one of the eateries in town that is now making delightful offers, while keeping all health protocols in mind.
Currently at its finest, The Great Kabab Factory is offering scrumptious, generous three course meals with a twist — an 'all you can eat' offer!
Upon entering the restaurant, we were welcomed by a bunch of professionals accompanied by masses of hand sanitizers and masks. Next, we were escorted to our self-chosen window view table, as decided over the phone reservation; displaying a crowded, yet enthralling Dhaka city view.
As we walked, the flickering of yellow lights soothed the atmosphere. The place had been decorated with aesthetic showpieces and paintings; a classic retro vibe wafted around.
After making ourselves comfortable, our eyes widened and mouth watered; for the menu showcased delightful items, namely 'khasta aloo chaat,' 'mutton galouti kabab,' 'chicken malai tikka,' 'rabri jalebi' and so on.
Impetuously, we opted for the non-veg selection and waited eagerly for the staff to fill our plates with items cooked with love. In less than seven minutes, the starters arrived. And so, the feast began!
For our starters, we had chosen kebabs, tikkas and chaats. From the delicious wide array of traditional options, we had given our top votes to raan e murg — an Indian delicacy of chicken legs flavoured with saffron, cheese, and cardamom. In fact, we had ordered each item on the menu for starters at least thrice. Oh, and from the beef line-up of starters, beef chapli kabab would have to be given an honourable mention. Simply delicious!
As we had already sated our appetites with a long list of starters, we kept the main dish quite "minimal" — Hyderabadi mutton biriyani, alongside naan, beef bhuna, and hariyali chicken. Despite the full tummies, we couldn't help but indulge in the rich taste of authentic Indian cuisine, and re-ordered a few of the starters and main dishes once more.
Soon enough, we had realised that it was no longer possible to eat another bite. But there is always extra space for desserts, right? The menu for desserts that day displayed gajar ka halwa, rabri jalebi and malai kulfi. Here's something worth mentioning — they had provided us with gulab jamuns as an addition, only because I mentioned I was craving it!
My spirits soared to the heavens gazing at the softest, most succulent gulab jamuns; and gulping at least six of them at once. Rabri jalebi and the malai kulfi were equally delicious.
Considering safety measures, the appetizing dishes, the generosity and affection of the staff; the visit was completely worth it!
