About Kababchi Grill

Kababchi Grill was opened in the fall of 2016 next to its’ sister café, Shisha Café, established in 2003. We provide Middle Eastern food with an emphasis on Iraqi flavor. Iraqi flavor is very unique due to the geographical location of Iraq; therefore we have Arabic, Turkish, and Persian influence on our dishes.

This restaurant is a much more formal dining experience and provides a wonderful atmosphere for eating lunch and dinner. You may also enjoy watching our kitchen crew grill your food on the charcoal grill in the window as you walk into the restaurant.

My rating is based solely on the fact the food didn't taste that good to me. That's not to say it was bad, but just different than the Middle eastern food I like. The restaurant was also quite expensive compared to others of its type.

Excellent flavors in all the dishes we tried. Thus far the best Humus and garlic spread in San Antonio. The wait staff is kind of green in terms of service flow and speed but they are freindly and pleasant. What I loved the most (besides the great food) was the variety of cultures of the people I saw on this 1st visit. I will surely keep coming back...

Food was very good different from what I normally eat but i liked it and will go back again. Service needed something. Didn't bring water right away. Still the food was very good. Atmosphere was nice and facility was clean.

Awesome food, staff and service. In fact arranged 3 parties here at different times. Everytime service was exceptional and CEO friendly staff. Works with you. And all the guests loved the food. Sarah.

Good service....nice decor. The food? Well....I am guessing the owner has a stake in a salt mine or maybe just has it out for chicken. Beef was decent and the rice was good if not inspired. Price is inline with most restaurants of this type but with less sides (most give you 2 but here only 1). If you're hungry and in the area you could do worse, but with minimal drive time you could get better.

Food ***** Presentation ***** Taste***** I’m pretty nit picky when it comes to middle eastern cuisine as I grew up with it but this place is easily my favorite in San Antonio. Disclaimer: it is not the cheapest dining experience but quality and taste is far and above anything I’ve had in San Antonio, meats were prepared and grilled on charcoal flame for added authenticity and seasoned to perfection. Also very generous portions usually most places skimp out on the meat quantity and size I actually had to ask for a plate to go it was very hearty. Bread was fresh out of the oven and included variety of dipping sauces my favorite was the Iraqi Eggplant which looking at the picture i wouldn’t have ever ordered it but after trying it I’m absolutely convinced. Biriyani Rice was just okay I’d avoid paying extra for it. Just didn’t have the flavor and polish of everything else on the menu.

Omg! This place! Sooooooo good! Cooking the food on the grill makes all the difference in the flavor. I’ve had my share of Mediterranean food and this one is my favorite. Great prices! Great portions of food. Fast and friendly service. Clean. Check them out during lunch for affordable deals. Can’t wait to go back.

The environment is very clean, food was excellent, their waitresses are all so polite and helpful. Nazira especially, she’s the star of the whole operation. I will be returning again. One of the best restaurants in San Antonio. 👌🏽

Edit as of 4/1/2019- Have been here more times and happy to report the service has improved drastically. The staff are polite and kind. The food is delicious as usual as well. Thanks to the owner who was quick to implement the changes. Great experience! Delicious food but extremely terrible service. Waitresses were super slow with the food. Food was done and just sitting for about 20min on the counter. Some of our orders weren't even correct. We didn't even go at a high rush time. Servers are not friendly and some have a rude demeanor. Place is clean and food is good but the service is so terrible that I took off 3 stars for that alone.

Awesome restaurant for families, the service is great, the food is amazing! I remember once we had a mistake in our order and Khaled "the restaurant manager" took care of this. He is so friendly and respectful, every visit he makes sure that our order is correct and that food and the service are meeting our expectations. I think it is one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in San Antonio, if not the best.

This place was recommended for me and I have to say it didn't disappoint. The food was hot, fresh and delivered fast. I love the ambiance and the prices were reasonable. As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted in a friendly way and seated then our drink orders were taken. They provide every table with the basket of naan to eat while you wait for your order. My Partner and I will be back to try many of their drinks and dishes.

One of my preferred spots for tasty Mediterranean food. Very appetizing. Service is consistently above par. Prices are decent. Menu is like a cafe in Indianapolis I loved.

Went for lunch today and this place looks really nice! It's open, bright, and really friendly! What's really cool is being able to see the grill right when you walk in the front door and see them cook they food goodness! Our server was pretty damn awesome and gave my friend and I some good laughs! The food is great and I especially liked the rice with my kabob plate! Definitely adding this place to my list of "eat here" restaurants in SA!

Great food, however had to wait for a while. The shakes are good and the sandwiches are sublime. The deserts are average. I give it 4 stars.

Service was bad today. A group of 14 of us ate there today. The food wasn't bad or too pricey. But, it tookm an hour for us to get our food. It's not the waitress' fault. The kitchen is to blame too. Maybe they were just unprepared for a group of 14. I doubt I'll ever come back here.

I love both of these Mediterranean places. The food is very good at a fair price. I would recommend to everyone to try at least once and you'll see what I'm talking about

So happy that this place opened. The food always comes out fresh off the grill, it offers a somewhat healthy alternative to traditional Texas dining, their pita bread is amazing, the environment is always clean and fresh, and the service is friendly! What more could I ask for?
