The awful spelling might be reminiscent of a fast food kebab house, but the food, service and decor makes this a much classier affair. The design is slick, if a little unimaginative, with red brick walls, dark tables and a view of the chefs at work. The menu is extensive, and both meat-eaters and vegetarians are well-catered for. Interesting options include the chandani malai kofta, comprising soft cottage cheese dumplings simmered in a rich, creamy sauce, while old favourites such as the butter chicken are also hearty and delicious.

Garlic naan is charred and crisp, while the butter pepper crab is a yummy, if wildly expensive dish (prices are worked out by market price, so be prepared to pay), and it is, unfortunately, not one that will fill you up, being very scant on meat. Overall service is swift and friendly, making it a good spot to enjoy some refined Indian fare.

Excellent Thali's. We love being remembered at this place, and the variety on the Thali is amazing. works well with our pocket and for a quick lunch time meal (specially when on a short break time). Thank you to the KnK team for taking care of my guests.

Outstanding food. the service was impeccable and we were treated like royalty. Food came nice and hot to the table with fresh naan breads. The kababs were juicy and the best ive ever had. Will definitely go back, this time, with a larger group.

Worst indian food we had in Abu Dhabi till date. We deliberated between Al A Carte or Buffet and went for Buffet.
Quality of food was absolutly low. May be because it is a buffet but the food looked and tasted as if it was cooked a day before.
Service is average.
When we went in at 8 PM there was only one table occupied. We should have guessed why... will never go there again.

What a disappointment this place has been!! Nearly everything we ordered was tasteless, the service was quite inattentive and casual and above all, it is much more expensive and that means way less value for money. Bad food, bad experience and one of the worst Indian restaurants we have been to lately. They should learn a thing or two from smaller players operating in food courts like Kabab Rolls in Khalidiya (now Kabab Kottage). Pathetic experience... I wish to go there, never again.

We had a great experience tonight. Surprisingly excellent service that we have not found many places here. The food was delicious and plentiful. They also scored extra points for catering to our 21 month old daughter.

What a disappointment ! ! Tamatar daniya ka shorba doesn't mean that you put dhaniya in a ready made tomato soup that is too sweet !! tandoori chicken ceaser salad had the biggest tasteless chunks of tomatoes I have ever seen in a ceaser salad .. kakori kebabs were listed as Chef's speciality but had no great taste to speak of - too much black pepper & chilli , no salt . Malai kebabs were raw-pink when served ; the dish was replaced but by the time we had finished with the food. Too much of black pepper in all preparations ...with just half the tables occupied on a Friday evening - the service was still unattentive.Much better Indian food available in Abud habi at similar or lesser price with better service .. May not make the mistake of going back again

Outstanding food and service. Great place to try out some traditional food items, and also to try out new items not available anywhere else. Try the Dahi ke kabab and also the indian spiced tandoori cooked chicken wings. The service was excellent and the staff paid attention to all our needs. Keep up the good job. Thanks

Food was exceptionally tasty! (Oredered the vegetable beryani and the paneer in tomato cream sauce) Loved the one-way glass into the kitchen. An absolute treat of a meal. Highly recommend this establishment.

We had a forgettable experience gone with the family and were not well taken care off or served. Our server had made a hash of our order, we just kept getting apologies not our accurate order.
Decor not great, Service also was disappointing. Bad experience.
Not at all authentic Indian food. Much better Indian food available at other restaurants in Abu Dhabi.

In every sense its an average restaurant. Ambience is nothing great, service was poor, food was okay, its priced very high, for this price we can go to some much better restaurant.
