In the sea of Indo-Pakistani restaurants along Devon, Ravi Kabob House sinks under the surface without fanfare. The menu has the usual subcontinental offerings--dals, tikka and tandoori preparations as well as biryanis with vegetables, lamb, chicken, or goat--but execution is lacking. The chapli kebab, a ground beef patty heavily flecked with coarse, dry coriander seeds, tasted oddly like a veggie burger; vegetable biryani, chile chicken, and a beef kebab were all grossly overseasoned. Dal masala was both mealy and swimming in ghee; the naan (plain, sesame, garlic, or cheese stuffed) were respectable without being inspirational. Ravi Kabob House does have its fans. The best I can say about it, though, is that the mango lassi makes a good palate cleanser. Alcohol prohibited.
