For Kabab lovers - about Kabab King Mehal

First, my apologies to grammar lovers who may be offended by my ID. Just my attempt at humor as well as a description of myself.

Being from Tampa, FL where I have not been able to get good kababs, I was happy to hear about these Kabab King places when I came to Long Island for a visit.

I know the standard Indian restaurant fare, but this was the first time I ate at a Pakistani restaurant. I do have some suggestions for them at the end of this message.

I decided to go to Kabab King Mehal in West Hempstead. The restaurant is spacious inside, but the parking lot in the back and the exterior are not that great. But they pass on what they save on rent to the customers cause I was pleasantly surprised when I found out how economical the prices were.

The Kababs were absolutely wonderful. I had the buffet lunch which had some very tasty items.

I was expecting service to be not that great when I realized that this was a super-economy restaurant. But the server Shehzad was very pleasant.

I asked for some extra naan, and boy did I get some wonderful bread.

Before leaving, I placed extra orders for some mutton and chicken kababs for take out. These I had for dinner, and they were so succulent. There were no mutton kebabs at the lunch buffet, but they taste as good as the delicious chicken kababs.

I wanted to post this message simply because after what I ate and the prices I am used to paying, I kept wondering how these people can afford to sell sumptuous food, and mega sizes at that, for such low prices.

I would like to suggest three minor things for the restaurant Manager to improve upon. It will be helpful if there is a label describing each food item at the buffet line. They need to get better quality paper towels and keep plenty in stock at lunch time. I guess they use the cloth napkins at dinner time. Also it will be helpful to have plenty of spoons and forks and small plates and bowls as well.

I guess the above will be helpful to Kabab lovers in the Queens, Jamaica and Long Island area.
