About The Great Indian Kebab Factory (Central)
It’s difficult to imagine a more exhaustive tribute to the art of the skewer. Hong Kong’s two Great Indian Kebab Factory outlets offer perhaps the world’s largest number of culinary variations on a theme, the theme here being all manner of ingredients brought together as kebabs. The Wellington Street, Central branch offers a slightly different selection to its twin, but the main attractions on the a la carte and degustation menus are still a mind-boggling brace of Indian and South Asian kebabs.

To be fair, it’s not all skewered meats, seafood and vegetables at this highly specialised Hong Kong Indian restaurant. Turning to the a la carte menu of The Great Indian Kebab Factory’s Central Hong Kong outlet along Wellington Street, you can choose from a range of connoisseur appetisers, before the main event (kebabs). The Indian street food theme is retained in smaller dishes like the old Delhi chat (crispies and lentil dumplings in a tangy yoghurt and tamarind dip), pani poori (wheat puffs stuffed with spiced potato, chick peas, and served with tangy water), the special chicken and mushroom 65s (typically spicy South Indian bar snacks), the prawn zarra zarra (deep fried prawns tossed with the chef’s special sauce), and the highly recommended rawa machhi (a famous South Indian road-side snack).
The best way to experience The Great Indian Kebab Factory is definitely their surprising degustation menu. It’s a journey through Indian cuisine from a kebab’s point (of view), beginning with a serving of factory salad and chilled tubes of classic lassi that act like palate-cleansing sorbet between courses. Diners then embark on a 6-course-plus-dessert investigation of gourmet vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian kebabs. It’s an incredibly affordable sampler, and without a doubt what draws the crowds to this Wellington Street, Central Hong Kong restaurant.
Great food, good service, cool view. Would recommend to others and will definitely go back. Kebab sampler was really delicious and presentation of food was lovely.
Great food! Great service.. The person who got out food, we've knwn him at different places in HK, and he was at his humorous/charming best!
finally found an Indian restaurant that does great curry with great service. Chicken tikka starter, wow mealt in your mouth and tasted so good. Vindaloo was hot and spicy and didnt disappoint. Can't wait to go back and try a few more dishes, highly recommend for those missing a quality curry at very reasonable price.
I came again to this restaurant after a pleasant first time experience, food and service were still great, my friends were impressed, will definitely come again!
Really enjoyed my first time at the Great Indian Kebab Factory. Great food and great atmosphere, definitely come again! Loved the pani poori and naan bread!
The set (non-vegetarian or vegetarian) is definitely worth trying. You can refill the rich variety of appetisers and lassi (indian yoghurt drink). Definitely value for money with its portion and taste.
Great view and very good food. Good selection of both meat and vegetarian dishes as one of our party was a vegetarian. Naan Bread was excellent! Staff were very attentive.
Delicious food. Good service. Enjoyed v much - lunch was as good as the dinner I had there.
Good decor and location. I had gone for the Sunday buffet. Would have liked more variety, but the food was pretty good nevertheless. Reasonable price.
Great food and very reasonably priced. If you eat here, try the journey menu. Excellent!
Great service! Good value for the amount of food we had. Thank you!
This place is value for money during lunch and authentic Indian cuisine.
Could do better in desserts. Main course was very good.
