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.

Highly recommend! Staff were incredibly helpful and kind, the food was extremely favourful and portions were very generous.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tables were spaced out well and we felt very safe and comfortable dining in the restaurant. The music, decor and general ambiance was lovely.

I will absolutely be returning to Afghan Kitchen.

Our server mahmood (hopefully spelled his name right) was excellent.
There was a food allergy at the table and he did his best to find out what was suitable and substituted where necessary. Excellent service and food!

Spices and flavors of our meal were outstanding. Service was prompt but not pushy. Our only concern was that as the evening progressed the music got louder instead of softer.

Food and service were excellent! We returned because we love Mom's Secret Cake (and got two this time so we didn't have to share). Felt covid-safe, and well taken care of.

The food was good. A little heavy on the rice on the platter. Could do with half as much. Would have rather ordered the kabob platter. Next time.

Covid precautions good.
Staff very attentive and friendly.
Ambience warm and inviting , we felt we had a nice evening out.
Food extremely tasty. We had the meal for 2. The size initially looks intimidating but all dishes light and we had no trouble eating except for some rice.
Best dish was the well spiced chicken gosh. Chicken kebab was good but could have used a little more garlic for my taste. The veggie appetizers spectacular.
Will definitely go again and take friends when there are less covid restrictions.

Excellent customer service from start to finish. The table was beautifully set on arrival, with water poured and a full jug, and menus artfully displayed at each place setting. As vegetarians, we appreciated that we could choose from about half of the menu. The rosewater ice cream alone was worth the visit!!

What can I say....Exceptional customer service and amazing food!

We started with the orange hummus that was served with yummy and fluffy Afghan bread. The flavour was lovely with a little bit of heat. (We were so hungry, I forgot to take photos of the appie!)

For our mains, my boyfriend and his son both ordered the Chicken Kebabs and I had the (vegetarian) Aushak. Great choices and very generous portions! We definitely had enough to take home for enjoying. I had enough for two days worth of meals! The guys enjoyed their chicken and my vegetarian dish was to-die-for delicious!!

We were also curious about "Mum's secret" dessert... so of course, we had to order one (with three spoons). Not sure what kind of cake it was, but it was lovely! It looked almost like a tres leches cake!

Thank you everyone at the Afghan Kitchen for a truly wonderful dining experience! We will definitely be back!
