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.

The food is delicious. We had the chicken kebab and lamb. You can bring kids to the restaurant. It might be a little loud if some of the kids start crying.

Food was amazing! . There was only 2 of us so we ordered 2 dishes to share and had a wonderful variety of meat and stuffed bread with a spicy and a yogurt side sauce. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about dishes and spices.
Will definitely return to this little authentic gem in South Surrey!

Everybody enjoyed their meal. However the lamb shoulder although tasty and tender was a lot of bone. Would have been better to order lamb shanks which my friend had tender, flavorful and a nice size. Also next time I would ask to sub the potatoes delicious, as opposed to the rice although flavorful, was very dry.

It was very good but way too much Afghan rice on the plate - it was delicious but overtook everything else. Wonderful service and we really enjoyed it.

Husband worked one year in Afghanistan in 1970, so we have enjoyed Afghan food elsewhere. The ambiance, service and food will bring us back for more.

We had an outstanding time. The food was delicious, and the music volume was perfect to carry a conversation. The staff was very accommodating to honour our reservation despite some friends coming in late and gave us exceptional service.
It’s definitely a place we will keep returning to with more friends and family.

Have been here multiple times now and it has always been fantastic! Food is amazing and service is exceptional. We really like the “KBL to YVR platter” for a good variety.

I love the authentic feel of this place with the choice to sit on chairs or on the floor. I would return to try more dishes. I really liked the Kofka. the Mantu and Chicken Kebab but my wife felt it was too spicy for her... Staff were friendly and fun. Service was well-timed and prices were reasonable.
