Raavi Naan Kabab in [Old Bridge, NJ]

Blink and you’ll definitely miss this one. Near the entrance ramp of Route 9 North, coming from Matawan, there’s a bright lime green no-non-sense roadside Pakistani kebab shop, naan bakery, and halal butcher.

Everything is made fresh to order, and it’s strictly take-out. This is a call ahead type of place. If you stop in to check it out, expect to wait 30-40min.

Best choices are namesake kebabs (chicken tikki botis, chicken seekh kababs, or whole tandoor chickens).

Thurs-Sun brings specials such as biryani and the Pakistan speciality nihari (slow-stewed meat in a robust sauce.)

Don’t forget your order of naan, or chicken keema naan.

I love this place! It’s a true “Chowhound” type joint, looks totally beat up, even a little scary from the outside but has some treasures in it. Glad you posted about it!


There’s a place in London called Ravvi Kebab that fits your description to a t. It’s the worst looking place on a street full of south Asian restaurants but the food is fantastic. Must be something in the name,
