Kabab's Indian cuisine offers tastes for every palate

Date Posted: 2006-04-01

India is a land of 28 states and seven union territories, and itís billion-plus people have a lot of favorite foods.

On Okinawa, a local Indian restaurant group is replicating many of those favorites. Kababís, with two locations in Chatan and Urasoe, features a diverse range of exciting traditional Indian dishes ranging from beef, chicken and prawns to fish and vegetables.

Kabab restaurants have a few specialties all their own, too. Lemon Chicken and Rajar Prawns are culinary delights, known well to repeat customers. Every menu item is tailored to the patronís palate, insuring that fiery spices donít prove too hot. Kababís staff easily cranks the spicy heat levels to exactly what the guest wants.

English is a plus at Kababís. Menus are available in English and Japanese, and staff are versed in communicating in either language. Kababís goal is to make it easy to appreciate Indian foods while having a pleasurable lunch or dinner dining experience. Customers flock to Kababís from as far away as Kadena Town, Okinawa City and even Yomitan, knowing well theyíll get a relaxed dining atmosphere as they enjoy the sensational food offerings.

Combo meals are meticulously created and combined to provide a sampling of Indiaís varied dishes. Kababís offers three luncheon sets. The first features a choice of chicken, beef, fish or vegetable curry, together with salad, Indian bread (called nan) or rice, and tea or coffee for only Y800. For &900, the first set expands to include tandoori chicken.

A third luncheon set, at Y1,000, includes everything from the first two sets, plus shish kebab. An expanded version of the luncheon sets, with larger portions, are offered at dinner time. Set one is Y1,800, and includes samosa, salad, soup of the day, one chicken, beef, fish or vegetable selection, nan or rice, lassie, ice cream and tea or coffee. Add Y200 and the customer gets tandoori chicken instead of samosa. The Y2,300 set includes everything from the other sets, plus shish kebab.

Kababís owner, Zakir Md. Khan, attributes his innovativeness and creativity to his background in French, Italian and Indian cuisines. Heís tweaked the wide ranging cultures to blend the three, creating unique dishes found no place else on the island, or in Japan as a whole.
