Kebabs are traditionally to be enjoyed only along the streets. Having kebabs in fancy restaurants masks the essence of how they are to be truly enjoyed. With a nice hot cup of Sulemeni Chai to go along with a bite of deliciously marinated kebabs in the perfect way to spend an evening.
Shivajinagar is one of the few places serving kebabs at all times of the night. After a night of partying, it is the best to visit Shivajinagar on an empty stomach to truly enjoy the wide varieties of kebabs available.
Here are a few of our favourite stalls serving up the best in kebabs in Shivajinagar, Bengaluru.
1. Abdul Lateef Paya Shop, Shivajinagar

2. Khaleem’s Seekh Kebab Stall, Shivajinagar
This stall will be pretty difficult to find as it does not have a board or any kind of identification marks.
