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.

They did not honour our open table reservation, we waited for more than 35 mins for a table. Once the food arrived it was all good as it was really well prepared , plenty and very flavourful.

Great authentic food - the Boulani is unbelievably tasty and the yoghurt with it compliments it so well. Flavourful, tasty, large portions in the meals. Friendly service.

Outstanding food that is exceptionally well prepared. Have been to AF many times and it is consistently fabulous. Portions are very sufficient. My only complaint and it is very minor is that at times it gets a little loud but that is mostly because there is usually a full house coming for a great meal.

Love this place, the food is excellent and so is the service. It’s a bit noisy in there but we went on a Friday night where there was entertainment going on.

We had reservations for Valentine's day. When we arrived we were told it would be a wait because other people with reservations had showed up late. After waiting for 15 minutes, we were seated. We then sat there for another 15 minutes waiting for a server. They were understaffed and not at all prepared for the number of reservations and walk ins. It was very disappointing. We left and grabbed a pizza on the way home.

We were there for dineout vancouver and our server, Mahmoud, was great. Very friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes. He came back to check on us several times throughout the meal and kept our water glasses full even though the restaurant was at capacity that night. The food is very food as well. We both had the lamb shank and it was very tender and flavorful. Really enjoyed the afghan rice that accompanied it.

We were there for Dine Out Vancouver and had a special menu which allowed us to taste several dishes. Each item was flavorful with a perfect blend of spices. Several teas are available and we tried two different once’s - both of which were refreshing. The milk pudding was a perfect finish to the meal. Will we return - definitely yes!

Food was excellent, service was ok. Large portions. Chutney Caesar was meh. Tables were packed tightly so patrons were a bit squeezed in. Took off a star for that. Took off another star; a young woman affiliated with the restaurant staff (particularly our waiter) came and sat down next to my table near the bar stools. In a noisy restaurant, she sat herself down and blasted music from her phone. Classy. Staff did not tell her to turn it down (probably because of her relationship with the staff). Unfortunately, I couldn’t stand it anymore and I had to tell her to shut it off...she responded with a snarky comment Shame. So 3 stars.

Make a reservation! We had reservations for 6 pm on a Wednesday night in January and by 7 pm there was a line up. The server was very helpful and attentive. We had advised him we were celebrating birthdays with a girls' night, and they did not rush us at all. The food was excellent, it was quiet enough to talk and nobody rushed us. We finally left at 9:45. We all had different items on the taster menu and the chicken was the moistest I have ever eaten. Enjoyed the Afghan rice too. We will be back again to try some of the other enticing items on the menu. I thought the price was very reasonable.
