Think that a plate of juicy, tender kebabs can perk up any meal? Then, you’ve come to the right place. For meat lovers {let’s face it, the vegetarians are not showered with too many choices here}, kebabs hold a special place in their hearts and plates. Stuff them into rotis, pair them with biryani, or just wolf them down plain – there’s little that can be better than the joys of a kebab. Especially when the fried or tandoored meat retains its juiciness, the spice mix is coated on beautifully, and the char is just right! LBB gorges its way through the best kebab joints in Bangalore.

Kund Indian Barbeque


The limelight at this non-descript place is often occupied by their spectacular Laham Mandi. But, we insist, that their kebabs are worth praise too. Sink your teeth into generously-spiced Afghani Kababs or a plate of their Ta’aam Special Kebabs, where juicy chunks of chicken are grilled to perfection after being slathered with spices.

Where: 19/1, Queen’s Road Cross, Muniswamy Road, Swamy Shivanandapuram, Shivaji Nagar

Siddique Kabab Centre

Just driving past this old favourite in Frazer Town can get you salivating {we, of course, speak with experience}. Come by to this shop on any evening {although they are open for business in the afternoons, they don’t have a lot of kebabs on offer} and you’ll have to make your way past a crowd to get to the front of the shop where the marinating kebabs are hung. If you are a big kebab fan, we recommend that you just pack home a plate of each. However, if you are picky, try their soft Malai Kababs that come coated with generous amounts of, well, malai {cream} before being dunked in the tandoor. The resulting charred edges go beautifully with the creaminess of the pieces. The deep fried, regular kebabs too have our heart.

Where:  66/5, Saint Johns Church Road, Opposite Coles Park

Khan Saheb

Pocket-friendly and popular, Khan Saheb does brisk business thanks to its meaty offerings. Drop by here and you’ll see grills laden with marinated meats on metal skewers. Their Chicken Reshmi Tikka, that’s generously coated in a coriander and mint mix. The Chicken Shahi Tikka that’s cooked over charcoals after being coated in yogurt is also a winner.

Their Kebabarie section features a handful of delightful options that are worth trying.

A popular chain, you’ll get plenty of choice here. Stack your plate high with their deep-fried chicken kababs, chicken lollipops, and their thin slivers of sholay kabab to make your tummy very happy.

Anees Food Truck

Run out of a rickety truck on Tannery Road, Anees’ kebabs, sheekh, and phall bring in the crowds. We recommend that you start off with phall, where thin slivers of beef are cooked on top of a stone. The smokiness on this one is delicious. The sheekh and the kababs, that are dressed up in a fiery masala before they hit the pan, are best had at home with a glass of your favorite tipple. Read more about them here.

Where: Tannery Road, Opposite Clarence School

Price: INR 100 for two

Timings: 6pm – 11pm, Sunday holiday


If you aren’t coming by for their delicately-spiced biryani, you should stop by for their kababs. From the bestsellers list, you’ve got to pick the Sholay Kebabs {finger-sized, boneless chicken pieces that are marinated in chilli and other spices before being fried} and if you love your kababs spicy, then, the Andhra Tikka. Prefer to play safe? Pick their Reshmi, Malai, and Kalmi Tikka versions and you won’t complain.

The juicy kebab goes posh at this restaurant. An all-time favourite is the creamy Chandni Kebab, that’s acquires a melt-in-the-mouth consistency after emerging from the hot tandoor. This is also a great place to try the Lucknowi Galouti Kebab, where lamb mince is mixed with a melange of flavourful spices before being made into patties and shallow-fried.
