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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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 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.

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".

"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."
