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.

This was a 10/10 dining experience! It was our first time at Afghan kitchen and also first time trying Afghan cuisine. Haseeb did a perfect job serving us, and I loved his food recommendation. We got the platter for two and it was a ton of food and all of it was delicious. I also loved the cocktail menu! It had a big variety and little pictures of the drinks. Amazing service and food.

Could do with a bit more attention to the quality of food. Cream served with our coffee was sour and off.

A slightly higher level of spice would be great too. Seems very bland

My first trip to Afhan Kitchen. The manager was very helpful and the service was great. The food was outstanding and plentiful. My only complaint is that my date and I ordered the happy platter appetizer and it was HUGE -- and we had already ordered entrees. I think our waiter might have told us the appetizer was so much food and maybe cautioned us that the servings were big too. Still the food was excellent. Just a bit noisy due to the warehouse design. Glad we went early. Overall - great and such a gift to South Surrey

It was our first time there and truly enjoyed our meal. There was a lot to select from. We ended up trying the chicken kabob with bread, eggplant with cumin rice and the Afghan chicken with rice. Each dish had its distinct flavours and was delicious. The service was attentive and professional. We can’t wait to go back again!

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. The staff was very knowledgeable and made wonderful suggestions for us. We sat on cushions in the traditional seating which made for a great experience on top of a delicious dinner. Recommend the lamb shank and the Afghan chicken. So moist and tender and full of flavour! We will definitely be back soon.

Afghan Kitchen is one of our favourites, and it was a special request from our out of town guests. The food was delicious as usual, the portions are quite large-it would be nice if there was a "smaller portion" option. Most of our group was seniors and children and there was a LOT of wasted food - crushing, as it was amazing. The servers were exceptional and personable, even accommodated a last-minute (on site!) addition to our reservation.

AWESOME venue! The food was phenomenal! The presentation was appealing, the flavours mouthwatering, and the restaurant's ambience and decor was bar none! The cook actually came out and described the foods we were eating as she brought them out. And you HAVE to try "Mom's Dessert" to complete your meal!

I/we give it 5 stars for everything except we would prefer if the music was played a little quieter. Loud music combined with all the chatting from patrons makes it too noisy for my liking. But other than that excellent all the way around.

We came on Friday, October 15 after hearing positive things about the restaurant.

Service was pleasant and timely.

Food was outstanding! We had not had Afghan cuisine but it was delicious. We had the Bolani to start and the platter for 2 as a main. Everything was excellent!

Will definitely visit again.

I love their virgin mocktails, must try the margaritas! The shami kebab from the charcoal and Afghan Chicken was also amazing and the portions are so generous. If you are a fan of spice, you should try the afghan chicken dish.

Staff was so friendly and professional! Made our night.

Food was super delicious! We ordered lamb shoulder platter, eggplanT dish, rice, eggplant dip for my baby, mums cake for dessert. My favourite is their eggplant dish. I never thought I would say this but I found the afghan eggplant recipe that is just as phenomenal as my Afghan mother in law’s. I also appreciate that they clean my baby’s suction plate I brought from home after meal.

I am married to an Afghan-Canadian. Every time we go visit their family and Friend’s home, we were always offered a hot cup of Afghan tea and I love this tradition. I would give 5 stars for customer service if I was offered tea in the beginning because this is what I am accustomed to when visiting Afghan families.
