Last November, Kababs, an Indian restaurant, opened up their second location at 3101 N Rock Road in the old Il Ponte restaurant at 29th and Rock Road.
I’ve been to the west side Kababs and wasn’t too entirely impressed. So fastforward to last week, one of my coworkers was celebrating his birthday. He’s from India and wanted some Indian food for his birthday. He made the suggestion of Kababs as he’s been to all the other Indian restaurants in town.
Knowing what I knew about the west side location, I still went with an open mind.
The east side Kababs is open Sunday 11 am – 3 pm, Monday thru Thursday 11 am – 9:30 pm and on Friday and Saturday from 11 am – 10 pm. The new location was very classy inside. I was digging the decor and ambiance of the renovated east side location.
Kababs has their lunch buffet daily from 11 am – 3 pm for $11.99.

So what type of food is served on the buffet? It’s a large assortment of unique and delicious items such as: Chicken Kaba, Paoras, Seek Kababs, Curry Chicken, Banigan Eggplant, Bhindi, Chola, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Tikka Masala among other items. Here’s a peek:
With two sides to each station, lines to move through the buffet went by quick. There were literally many different options to choose from; one of the larger spreads I’ve seen at an Indian Buffet and I’m pretty sure I’ve been to close to 100% of them in Wichita.
There were seven of us who went and everybody was ooh’ing and aah’ing at the deliciousness of it all. All the food tasted very fresh and of high quality.
Since we went at a peak time with many customers, they kept the food coming. Everything was fresh as it entered the buffet line; nothing tasted as if it had been sitting there for hours.
Some favorites from everybody included the tandoori chicken, Naan cooked in cinnamon, beef kabob, biryani rice and the salad options. The aroma alone would get you while you were walking up and down the lines.
My co-worker celebrating his birthday pretty much only eats Indian food and he said it was the best in town; high remarks for someone who knows his food. That sentiment was shared by many others in attendance, me included. I loved the quality of the food; ten times better than my previous experience at Kababs which coincidentally was not at a peak time of day.
The buffet was well liked by many as Indian food was not common for most of the people in our group. It allowed them to sample small portions of what they thought they’d like.
The service was top notch as well with our server constantly coming around, refilling drinks and checking on everybody’s status.
By all accounts, Kababs East side lunch buffet was a winner; one we will definitely be returning to soon.
