Safa Kebob

Afew weeks ago, I went to Safa Kebob with a friend since it’s been a while since my last visit there. Originally, Safa Kebob was part of my list of decent restaurants to eat in KW however I was sorely disappointed on my last visit. On my first visit I had the Chicken Gahlfiarazi with rice, salad, bottled water and naan. This time around, I got the Goosht Biryani with salad and naan while my friend got the Beef Tikka and Beef Shami Kabob. The service we received the first time we went there in 2012 was friendly and welcoming. The service we received when we went back there in early May wasn’t quite as welcoming and bordering on unfriendly.

The Goosht Biryani was ok, it wasn’t as spicy as I thought it would be and there wasn’t much ingredients in it, just lots and lots of rice with minimal meat and some sauce. There wasn’t much flavour to it and Indian cuisine is known for its spices and flavour. I actually prefer the Chicken Gahlfiarazi since it was very spicy and had a balanced portion of rice and meat. The salad was nothing special.

My friend thought the Beef Tikka and Beef Shami Kabob were ok.

Overall, we both prefered the quality of the food the first time we went in 2012 and the service was much better and friendlier in 2012. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant if you’re looking for Indian food in Kitchener.
