Khyber Pass has been around for a very long time because of a good reason: Their food is scrumptious and their menu interesting, their ambiance is lovely and the service is good. Everyone I've brought to this restaurant has said that "they want to come back". One of my very favorites in the city ... and great for vegetarians as well!

I love this place. I’ve been coming for years. The food is unusual and so delicious. Sit in the window boxes for a more authentic experience.

This restaurant has hookahs so there were a number of people smoking; not very pleasant for those who don't smoke.

The food was amazing!! Our table of 5 did not have a single disappointing dish. Hummus starter, I had the Mantoo which was absolutely delicious and satisfying after a chilly walk in the city.

I was very excited to try this restaurant but sadly it did not meet my expectations. The food was watery and bland, the sambosas were greasy. The only thing I liked was the mango lassi. I would not go here again.

Went with 3 friends and we all enjoyed it. Eggplant appetizer was the standout and lamb dishes were tasty.
