Kabab and Currys in Santa Clara: This Place Is a Total (Halal) Sausage Factory
This place is a total sausage factory. And by that I mean penises-- many penises attached to many respective dudes. (And really, that's all I could mean, since Kabab and Currys is halal and pork sausage is therefore out of the question.)
Many men (and okay, a few women) here are in Muslim head garb and traditional dress. For some reason, whenever I come here it's the day I've happened to wear something low-cut. Part of me worries I'm offending their culture, the other part of me worries they'll cut off a boob.
Skip the buffet and go straight to the menu items, or as they call it "the variables." The chicken boti kabab consists of smoky & juicy breast meat, and although the chicken tikka masala is the wrong color it has nice complex spicing.
Beware: Sometimes they will refuse to let you order off the menu. I finally figured out that the kitchen just decides that they're too busy to deal with anyone who's not getting the buffet. I get around this by calling ahead to make sure they'll make me food to order.
