Ambiance

The ambiance of The Great Kabab Factory Bangkok is interesting and stylish. The restaurant has given an earthy touch with deep orange and rust colors. The roof is beautifully carved with navy blue work. The dining room is sparkling with marbled flooring. We personally like the concept of open kitchen, from where you can watch the meals getting prepared. They also have outdoor sitting which makes a perfect dining experience when weather is pleasant.

Diners sit at their tables and settle down while a small army of waiters carry over tray after tray from the open kitchen which shows that staff is very professional and loves to serve their guests. The fact that most of their staff are from India helps in maintaining their authenticity.
