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.

My husband and I as first time visitors ( and a birthday to celebrate) had an exceptional experience at Afghan Kitchen. Everyone was friendly and welcoming from the start and our server Mahmood was so just pleasant and attentive!
Great ambience and decor, yet casual. We enjoyed everything we ordered including chilled eggplant dip, MEATing in Kabul platter for 2 ( leftovers for the next day too) Presentation was beautiful and all the food was so flavourful. We especially enjoy the Turkish coffe and Mums secret cake.
Great evening, we will absolutely be back!

The food was delicious but sitting in the Afghan room made it an event. The servers were super attentive (in a good way). Can’t wait to go again with friends or family.

This was our first time at the restaurant and we really appreciated the time our waiter spent explaining the menu and then what each dish was when it arrived. The food was excellent!

Went for lunch to this hidden gem. We ordered the lunch specials of chicken nuggets and an eggplant dip as appetizers. These are definitely shareable plates. Wonderful flavours. Really didn’t need to have ordered anything else. The green salad with yogurt beet dressing was huge. ( I took 1/2 home) Similarly my husband ordered a minced beef with tomato sauce & rice.dish. Flavours blended so well and complemented each other. Service was really good.

Having had authentic Afghani food before this felt a little like "tourist" Afghani. It wasn't bad but it wasn't at the level of Afghan Chopan.
We ordered the platter for 4. Yes, it was filling but the meat wasn't sufficient. For example, there was only 1 lamb shank for 4 people. It's just more than a bite for each one of us.
The seats were very uncomfortable. We were seated in a booth but the bench was very short. We just fit in and if one of us had been a bit overweight, we would have been hanging off the side.
The dishes were annoying. They were small and curved at the ends and when you put your cutlery down, it often fell off into your lap as it didn't rest properly on the plate.

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.

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.
