Afghan Kitchen is the manifestation of a young boy’s dream. He roamed the streets of Kabul in his sandals and saw how hard his family worked to sustain themselves. In the times of war, they moved to different neighbouring countries until they finally came to Canada.

Afghan Kitchen presents you the vision of the young boy’s very own restaurant since he was six years old. Every corner of Afghan Kitchen is thoughtfully curated. Every dish uses mum’s recipe.

This is a family-owned and -run business that reflects the best of Afghan roots, traditions, and values. Afghan Kitchen is the taste of home.

    Simply…The Best! First “dine in experience” we’ve taken in Canada since restrictions lifted, and boy, did we pick the right spot. The Bolani was just as delicious as we remembered it. We had the combo with the lamb shank and chicken kuorma, with spinach, eggplant and potatoes. Omg……so much food. But sooooo soooooo good!! Already planning our return visit.

    we are repeat customers. love the food and the service. Good spacing between tables. This last visit was a full house, more noisy than usual - result was all you could hear of the background music was an annoying base boom boom boom…….. Next time we will avoid the 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm rush. But all in all continues to be a favourite rstaurant.

    Drinks were okay but nothing special. Food was excellent. My wife had the Kololi which is the spiciest menu item and loved it. I had the Mantu which was very tasty and filling. We wanted to try something different for dessert and had Mum's Secret. It's a dense cake and not that flavourful. I'd skip this item. Overall, staff was great and a good value.

    I had the Aushak veggie dumplings and they were very good. Enough food to take home for a snack later. My friend had the Banjan eggplant dish and she didn't like it. But we both appreciated that they had several vegetarian and vegan options. It was at opening time on Sunday and not busy, so it was nice and quiet. Service was great.

    The restaurant is beautiful, with many lovely paintings on the walls. The food was excellent and the service as well. I especially like the Afghan rice with the carrots, almonds and raisins. I also had chicken kabob which was very nice.

    We had a beautiful experience here last night. This was our first time here and definitely NOT the last. The staff were amazingly courteous and professional. We ordered the Afghan night platter for 4 and it was more than enough for the 4 of us who were very hungry. Kudos to the whole team at Afghan Kitchen South Surrey 👏 Will definitely go back again!

    Three of us had no experience of the concept of Afghan cuisine as we had only generalised reference points of mid eastern or Mediterranean food. Two vegans and I, however, were not spoilt for choice. The only slight niggle was that after encouraging us to look at the dessert menu, the item I chose (from a very limited choice) was not available. It was a non dairy chocolate ice cream. My only slight disappointment. We ended up sharing the mums secret....

    As a repeat customer, once again the food and service were great. A previous server warmly greeted us even though it has been a couple of months since our last visit and she was not serving our table. Nice to be remembered. Our friends had not been there before and were, I believe pleased with the evening. A food allergy concern was well taken care of.

    Never disappoints. I love dining at the Afghan Kitchen and love taking out of town guests there. The food and the service is consistantly excellent. I was concerned that since the family has opened the new restaurant in Vancovuer, that the quality or the service may have changed at the South Surry location but I can assure you that everything, the food, the service, the ambience is just as fantastic as it always is.
