I had visited the Yusuf Sarai outlet of Kebab Gali a month back, and when they opened up another outlet at the Vasant Square Mall, they invited me for a complimentary meal. It is a tiny outlet with just 4 tables and the decor is minimalistic. However, the service, as was with the Yusuf Sarai outlet is very warm and prompt.
Coming to the food, we ordered Dohra Kebab, Garlic Chicken Tikka and Mutton Galouti Kebab for starters along with Fresh Lime Soda.
Dohra Kebab is definitely one of the best items on their menu. It has minced mutton inside and minced chicken on the outside, in the shape of a seekh kebab. Both the meats were well seasoned and juicy, and the kebab was quite tasty. The Garlic Chicken Tikka was well marinated in a nice mix of spices and was succulent and flavourful, with a subtle flavour of garlic. The galouti was served with regular paranthas (even though the menu says varqi parantha), and though varqi paranthas are meant to be a little sweet, I think they should tone down the sweetness on this one. The galouti was soft and delicately spiced- not the best I’ve had, but still quite good. The fresh lime soda had some kind of mint syrup in it and was quite refreshing.
By the time we got done with starters, we were too full for main course, but since I wanted to try at least one item on their menu, I asked them to get me a small portion of Chicken Curry with Mirchi Parantha. The chicken curry was a basic, spicy, home-style type of curry and the chicken pieces were very tender. While I was expecting the mirchi parantha to be one with red chili powder, this one had chopped green chillies on it and was quite good.
Overall, this is a nice place for kebabs (while their main course items could do with some improvement) and all their dishes are reasonably priced. Another good thing is that all their main course dishes have the option of half or quarter portions, so that you can have more variety. This place can definitely be tried, and is more suited for home delivery.
