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.

Amazing food, and amazing service! I recommend for everyone to try. We sat at the traditional seating and the experience was wonderful. The drinks are also well worth their price!

Great food. Big portions. Wasn't sure what to expect in food from Afghanistan. Seemed to me like a blend of middle eastern and Indian food but with some very unique twists. Will definitely go back.

Foods great as always, service very disappointing, our server forgot us. First drinks and food was good, then nothing. Didn’t come back for second drinks, we had to ask, then 20 minutes later our drinks showed up. I had two Caesar’s, both completely different. Liked the first not the second. Also I asked for some bread, never came. It surprised us that you had more than enough staff, but we were invisible. I left a good tip, but would have been better had I felt someone really cared about our experience. Will order take out next time, make my own drinks. Thanks for asking.

In my first visit, I ate Lamb Shoulder and it was delicious and substantial. However, in the second visit, I wanted to try a grill kebap and ordered Lamb Kebap. It was ok but not delicious (6/10). I ate better ones in Vancouver.
The issue was related to the meat taste and I think it was made by sheep meat, not lamb meat.
Next time I want to try Beef Kebap. We will see how delicious you make it.

The food was tasty (we ordered the sampler plate KBL - YVR) and it was a nice experience. The chicken qorma, afghan rice and eggplant were our favorites. The service was great and the servers were very personable and helpful. I felt that the food could have been hotter (in regards to temperature). I was a little underwhelmed with the appetizers we chose (gold wedges sounded tastier than they were and the afghan bread was quite bland). Next time I wouldn't choose these. Tried the trio of desserts and they were quite delicious - all a bit different.

Love everything about this place!!! We had the KBL to YVR dinner for 2, bread, 2 drinks and the ice cream and our bill was less than $100. We are usually big eaters but left there completely stuffed. The food was so delicious that we had to keep having one more 'last' bite!! I have talked about this place for days to so many friends. Highly recommend it.

As usual, the service was friendly and the food was absolutely delectable. The wine list is also impressive, with choices for all palates. The new safety protocols are all in place, of course, but our dinner still felt as convivial as it did before the pandemic. There’s something special about Afghan Kitchen. I’ll have to go back 100 more times to try to put my finger on it.
