Afghan Kitchen South Surrey
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.
Just the best hidden gem in the lower mainland. Amazing food, service and beverages. We are here often and it’s never disappointed.
We loved this place. And it's a surprise given its location in a strip mall...the ambience is lovely. Its family owned with mom doing the cooking. The cocktails are fantastic...have the band e Amir. Plus, the food is fabulous!
They went above and beyond, as always.
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.
Excellent food and the service was very good! We'll definitely be back!
wonderful food, ambiance, and great service. Would, and have, highly recommended to friends and family
Great food & service, will definitely be back.
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.
As usual, we have been many times and every time we are there we walk away with our taste buds just buzzing. Great spot and super team of staff. Appears as everyone pitches in.
First time visit for us and we enjoyed everything about it! Food was delicious and the service was A+. We can’t wait to go back to try more of the deliciousness we experienced tonight! Great job Afghan Kitchen!
Would definitely go back
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.
Fabulous meal and experience,service
This was a first time in the restaurant but it won't be the last, food was great and the service was very comfortable, definitely will return with friends
Be prepared for a pricey meal. There is an abundance of food so be careful ordering. No Lamb Kabobs however the website lists them on the menu
Very accommodating. Service is very polite and active. Thank you
It was a wonderful first time experience. Have already recommended it to friends. We will definitely return to try more dishes. We went for Anniversary lunch, it was wonderfully quiet. Food was amazing and service was exceptional.
This is hands-down one of our most favourite restaurants! The service is excellent and the food is so good! We will continue to be regulars here! Thanks to Tisha for their awesome hospitality and wonderful food.
Amazing service right from the start. Food was tasty and beautifully displayed! And the ‘bowl’ refreshment was unbelievable! We will be back again with even more friends to experience the Afghan Kitchen!
Amazing food! Friendly knowledgeable servers. I’d go back in a heartbeat!
Great food, exceptional service. We always have a fantastic experience at Afghan Kitchen.
Great restaurant! Love the food and service 😀
We have never had afghan food before, but we'll definitely go back there. The service was great, very attentive and polite waiters, amazing food, and a quiet atmosphere. The even have an authentic seating area, which we are going to try when we go back there.
Delicious food.. large portions.. enough for lunch the next day. Lovely touch to have a yummy dessert to celebrate my nieces birthday! Very attentive service, and I love the option to eat on cushions on the floor.
Food was excellent, my only negative was the plates were cold therefore food was cold. Easy to correct. A busy and noisy atmosphere, so not for a quiet romantic evening
Being our second time in less than three weeks is remarkable unto itself. Previous to attending Afghan kitchen we had never experienced Afghan food. We’re hooked! Service was what service should be, completely attentive to our personal needs and wants. That’s not to say we were the only people there, it’s just to say we were made to feel that way. The Bolani is an ABSOLUTE must, I’d go there just for two orders of that. My wife is addicted to the Lamb shank, and she generally is not a fan of ethnic cuisine. I prefer the cumin rice, but certainly can appreciate the Afghan rice as well. We look forward to trying almost everything on the menu, if the 10 things we’ve tried amongst us is any indication we really can’t go wrong.
Thank You Thank You to all the staff at Afghan Kitchen for awakening our taste buds
The food was unbelievable and the service was excellent. I cannot wait to go back.
Service, food and all staff encountered extremely accommodating and professional. Noise level quite loud making table conversation at times difficult .... will certainly go back as the food is wonderful !
The food was really tasty and flavoursome. The service was excellent, with the waiter providing us background info about both the food and the restaurant. He was attentive but not in a hassling way, and we felt relaxed and able to enjoy our food and drink without being rushed in any way.
If you go, make sure to leave room as the servings are plentiful. We probably came home with half of each course - which was great for Sunday lunch ;)
Another telltale sign for a well run restaurant is the washroom. These were clean and well looked after :)
They now have an outside patio which would be nice in the summer, although due to location it means that you would be only a few feet from cars in the car park.
Overall, it was a great meal and experience, and I would recommend for both regular dining and a special meal.
I love the fact that the servers actually treat you as their own guests and not just customers. Our server made sure that we had everything we needed. As always my visit was wonderful and my friend from India love the hospitality. Thank you
Nice place, but a bit too bright inside especially during the summer months. Would be nice if they had some curtains, especially in the floor seating area. Would create a more authentic experience.
My first time here and won't be the last. Had a great lunch! Nice ambience, good service, delicious food and great value! I recommend this restaurant!
Afghan Kitchen always has great food and great service. The waitstaff is friendly and excellent, always available to answer questions or make recommendations on the menu.
We have been in 5 times and every time we are in we are more impressed. They really know how to take care of you. Recommend this to anyone that loves fantastic food and ambience.
Split the veggie platter for 2 with a non-veggie and we almost finished it! Amazing food, beautiful decor, great service. Went on father's day so was quite busy and louder than usual, but service was still quick. Very authentic experience. Server gave me tea recommendations "as an Afghan myself".
Beautiful ambience, food is tasty and the service is fast.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. All dishes were authentic and very tasty. Really generous food portions...almost all of us had to take something home. We did not leave hungry! We were there on a Saturday night and it was full and lively. They even had a belly-dance to entertain us."
