What we don’t like

  • Pricey menu items

Well, hello there, my fellow meat lovers! Today, I’m here to talk about a place that’s got me feeling like a true kabab connoisseur – The Kababist! 

As a passionate food blogger, I have had the pleasure of sampling many kebabs – but The Kababist has taken it to extraordinary heights.

Let me tell you, this desi spot knows how to spice things up in all the right ways.

But enough chit-chat. Let’s get to the meaty details of why The Kababist has stolen my heart. Get ready to drool, my friends – this review will be sizzling!

Taste: Hold on to your Chapatis

I couldn’t resist starting by ordering their BBQ Honey Wings – the crispy outer layer with a sweet and smoky BBQ glaze that left me delightfully licking my fingers. 

I could have eaten a bucket of these beauties! Seriously, these are some of the best kebabs in town

But then came the main course, and oh my, I fell in love all over again. The Special Hunzai Kabab was an absolute standout. The perfectly seasoned minced beef, served with mint chutney, left me speechless. 

Next came the Kababist Special Kababi Chicken Handi. My heart skipped a beat as I savored the creamy delight, with its beautifully cooked chicken swimming in a rich and savory gravy.

And let’s talk about the Special Balochi Karahi Chicken – tender and flavorful, with just the right amount of heat to make me sweat (in the best way possible). 

Last but not least, the dessert – the Lava Cake – was an absolute showstopper. A warm, gooey cake oozing with molten chocolate and a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream sent my taste buds into a frenzy.

Price: Weeping Wallet

Now for the important part – what about the price? Well, it was expensive. Just take a look below at the items I ordered:

  • BBQ Honey Wings: PKR 450
  • Special Hunzai Kabab: PKR 910
  • Kababist Special Kababi Chicken Handi: PKR 750
  • Special Balochi Karachi Chicken (Full): PKR 1485
  • Lava Cake: PKR 435

The price tag may make you think twice before indulging in their delicious dishes – but trust me; the food makes it worth every penny.

Service: A Slice of Heaven

When it comes to service, The Kababist does not disappoint. They have a team of well-trained waiters who are always willing to help, serve with a smile and go out of their way to ensure every guest is happy and satisfied. 

The management was also tremendous – they showed us great hospitality and were attentive to every detail.

Ambience: A Marriage of the New and Old

Situated at the Main Shahrah-e-Faisal, this restaurant is more than just a culinary destination; it’s an experience that will have you returning for more.

The interior is traditional, making it an ideal spot for casual dining. But they have also incorporated modern elements – such as comfortable seating, dim lighting, and tasteful artwork – to add more style and sophistication. 

The outdoor area is ideal for an evening meal, as Karachi offers moderate weather throughout the year. Plus, the lush green plants and brick walls contrast the hustle and bustle of city life.

The washrooms are well-maintained and hygienic – no untidy bins or broken lights here.

Honorable Mentions: More than you Asked for

The Kababist is not just a one-trick pony! 

While their desi dishes are the main attraction, they also offer a wide range of other cuisines that will make your taste buds tango. They’ve got everything from burgers to sandwiches, Continental to seafood, Thai to Chinese.

But while they may offer other cuisines, let’s not kid ourselves – desi is The Kababist’s specialty, and they’ve mastered it.

Final Verdict

The Kababist should be your go-to eating spot whenever you’re in the mood for some seriously delicious kababs.
