Q: Have you tried Kababs? I have looked at the menu and dropped by the restaurant. It is nicely decorated and the food smelled good. I plan to eat lunch there on Thursday. _ Barb Addison from Wichita
A: I've been to Kababs at 756 N. Tyler twice for lunch and have been more than happy both times. Fabulous chicken curry, tandoori chicken, kebabs, naan and more. Plus, the staff is very nice and accommodating. I haven't been there for dinner yet, and I wish they served alcohol, but I can highly recommend the lunch buffet.
Question of the week
And a few answers to last week’s question: Wichita restaurants are known for their huge portions. Do you consider this a blessing or a curse? Do you choose a restaurant based on portion sizes?
“I think the word of the day here is moderation. If these ‘huge’ portions consist of lots of fresh fruits and veggies, then it's a blessing. I myself don't choose a restaurant based on portion size. I go more for taste, appearance, service, value and so on.” — allaninsc
“I generally don't mind the huge portion size. I eat about half, or 3/4 if I'm really starving, and my lumberjack-of-a-fiance finishes the rest. I'm also a fan of to-go boxes.” — Silverdire
“I really enjoy a restaurant experience where you can have an appetizer, meal, dessert, maybe even coffee and a drink and no leftovers. I will take home leftovers for lunches, but prefer a variety over a large main meal.” — cafanter
“I sometimes choose a restaurant based on portions. If I know I can go there and get a good lunch with enough leftover for a small dinner, I'll go there instead of somewhere else. I'm single and work two jobs so I don't have as much time to cook as I'd like.” —fish
“People around here need to learn that in a restaurant, you are not paying for food by the pound. I've seen far too many people complain that they will not return because the portions are too small. There have been several articles regarding swelling portion size in the U.S., relating to our ever expanding waistlines. There's no reason for this, just as, parents, there's no reason for the clean plate club. Bring back rational portions!” — bspearce
“A CURSE! If my wife in I know that the restaurant serves obesity-causing serving sizes, we don't go.” —burdsal
“It depends. If I'm going to dinner with friends, I'll definitely pick quality over quantity. However, if the goal is to just stop the hunger, I will often go somewhere that I can have leftovers. For example, at Great Wall, I can make 3 meals off of their $5 lunch. Definite bang for your buck and good food to boot!” — Pro_Wichita“My wife and I like the large portions. We often split an appetizer and an entree and sometimes have enough left for lunch the next day. We practice the poverty mentality of our parents.” —ProUSA
“I shy away from larger portions because I know I'll overeat. I'll sit there and pick at the meal until I finally get a box and still leave the restaurant miserable (which I know is my own self-control issue, but when there's so much food it's easy to eat ‘just a little more’ and overdo it). And although I like the idea of stretching one meal across lunch and dinner, sometimes food from a restaurant isn't as good warmed up. I'd rather have a reasonable serving, but still at a value (because, hey, we are in a recession!)” — RockChalkGirl
