You may know the little center Glen Court on Rosecrans Boulevard. It contains your main food places: Carl’s Jr., Blaze Pizza, Honey Boba, and Royal Kabob, the last of which is a tiny place that is barely visible to the naked eye.

There is a tranquil environment when you step through the door and hear the soft bell. The walls are painted with a warm orange tone that is comforting and artwork that is simply fascinating in its elegance. Each painting was framed strategically in order to let the art truly flourish.

The relaxing orange tone of the walls is only added to with the distinct aroma of potatoes and a vibrant blend of spices as well as the soft almost Bollywood music videos playing in the background. There didn’t seem to be many customers dining in since the place was empty though the phone rang for orders to pick up.

You are definitely comforted by the manner of placing as well as the extremely agreeable staff consisting of the attentive cashier and the stoic chef. There are six tables to sit at reaching capacity in seating at about 26 people. The kitchen is half the size of the place and rightfully so since it makes room for the magic to happen that occurs there.

When gifted with the ample and alluring chicken tandoori wrap, it was served in the style as that of a burrito one would get to go. The cashier informed of the best way to eat it in order to really experience the spice by adding some of their sauce to give it more of a kick. Though the recommendation was not followed, for fear of too much spice, it was a flavorsome experience.

The piquant and succulent chicken breast has a distinct zest that felt as if my entire body woke to an almost too warm experience like the warmth of a deep bass tone in something like Don Juan.

Though the astringency was almost overwhelming, it was calmed with the balsamic effect of the lettuce as that of a soft wind instrument had joined perfectly with the strings.

The bell peppers, onions, and lettuce added on another layer of delectable flavor and dulcified the punch of the chicken as if more strings, like violin and viola, were added to the symphony.

The warm naan that wrapped around the edge of the piquant chicken flowing smoothly into the unique tartness of the onion and the subtle sweetness of the bell peppers and the cooling effect of the lettuce came together in a melodious symphony that reminds one of home.

There are traces of comfort and home wrapped into everything that is Royal Kabob. Ranging from the aromatic scent of spices and vegetables to the choice art pieces. Royal Kabob is truly the place to go if you’re looking for a home away from home combined with a new experience.
