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.

Waiter was very happy to explain how the food was served as well as how it was cooked. Always filled our water and didn't have to ask for anything extra. Food was amazing as well as the service.

This restaurant was absolutely amazing. My husband and I enjoyed everything. The food was authentic, colourful and seasoned perfectly. The wait staff were fantastic :) Our waiter was the best you could have asked for. He explained the food and even talked about his mom cooking in the kitchen. He even explained where we could go to buy the tea they serve in the restaurant. The belly dancer was a nice touch of entertainment for our evening. We will definitely be back.

Food is always good. The only challenge to having the most enjoyable evening is the layout allows cold air to stream across the the sections near the front door when opened. This is frequently on a busy night. The only other comment is that the music is a little loud to allow for natural conversation so people throughout the restaurant have speak louder and thus increasing the noise.

Absolutely lack of flavour compared to other Afghan restaurants and having eaten a lot of middle eastern foods and traveling there as well, this place very disappointing. This place is really catering to the people who live in that area and there flavour profile, anything more, they would find is too exotic, too much flavour and too many spices being used. If you are looking for a real cultural experience then avoid this restaurant. Service is good and the ambiance is really nice but that’s it.

Excellent food and friendly staff plus a bonus belly dancer that our mixed group enjoyed. Servers were very knowledgeable while clearly explaining menu items. Noise level was moderate, not too quiet but not too loud either, which made for a perfect conversation level without sharing stories with surrounding diners. Would definitely go again and refer to friends.

I've eaten at this restaurant only twice but if I lived closer, I would definitely eat there more often. We drive from Tsawwassen and our friends drive from Vancouver because it's worth it. The food is yummy, the atmosphere is great and the service is outstanding. Both times we had the same server and he made our visit a wonderful dining experience. This past Saturday we stayed long enough to be entertained by a belly dancer. She made the evening extra special. This is a family run business and they are incredibly lovely people.

Service was outstanding. The host recommended an excellent selection for my first visit and sent someone out to the store to try to get the gluten free beer I wanted. He also explained a special seating area where customers could enjoy an authentic Afkan Dining Expeience sitting on cushions at low tables.
The foo and atmosphere and decor wee all interesting and very well done. I would recommend this place anytime.

As always, it was such a pleasure to go to AK. Not only is the food incredible with flavour, but the ambience and the entertainment! Having lived out here for over a year now and exploring the different places, AK is hands down the best dinning spot in South Surrey and is at the level of as if being in downtown Vancouver. The staff is always, and I mean always, so welcoming - they always know how to make you feel special and are so attentive. Thanks AK, it’s amazing to see you grow and thrive!

The ambience is good for the area as it was missing an ethnic eatery. The food was ok for taste, the meat quantity (for the main entrée platters) not enough to my liking compared to other restaurants of the same or similar theme. 1 beef skewer on one and 1 palm size lamb shank on the other, definitely reduce the value stars in my opinion. The place is energetic and sound level was good when the dancer isn't performing but gets really too loud during the performance, in my opinion needs a bit of tweaking the level down.

The drinks are pricey as I don't consider the place a 5star restaurant. Would repeat maybe and try something else and see what else they have to offer and hopefully better the second time around.

Afghan food is my favourite type of food. we have a few options in the greater Vancouver area - Afghan horseman, Afghan chopan, and Afghan kitchen. I must say, Afghan kitchen is my new favourite place for afghan food. Not only is the food quality the best I've had in this this cuisine, but also the pricing is extremely reasonable and service was excellent.

The service was very good. The food was generally uninteresting and not flavourful. There is no ambience - this is a mall store with no effort having been made to make it seem like anything else. Strongly recommend a nearby Indian restaurant as a much better alternative.
