Party of six for dinner, table reserved few days in advance. Food arrived fairly quickly. Personally I found the portions small compared to other mediterranean style restaurants. Someone asked for a desert menu, and the server said that our table had another reservation at 8...? We had no desert.

We ordered Kabab platter delight and other Afgani dishes, the taste was below the average. The meat that this restaurant uses is frozen meat from New Zealand, lowest quality in the market. Also the menu is so pricy, 30 to 70% more than other Afgani restaurants in the town. The rice that was served for us was without doubts preheated... More

As we were at Granville Island and had no teaten we decidecd to try this restaurant . We chose to eat in the traditional room. We were asked to remove our footwear and sat on very low couches and cushions on the floor. It was very comfortable after a long day of walking . As we had never had afghan... More

Heard about this place for some time...decided today was the day. 4 of us walked in with no reservations on a busy Saturday...no problem. They were very accommodating and found us a nice spot. The service was fast and efficient. They were considerate ...knowing it was our first time they explained all the dishes, the spices, they made suggestions and... More

Well I can't speak to the value or the food because we didn't get that far. I had always wanted to try this place, and based on my experience I will never go back. I walked in this past weekend with 2 friends. Nobody greeted us or smiled. We were asked if we had a reso, and when we said... More

First off, this is different...seated on pillows, low lighting, great vibe for something new... We ordered the Horseman's Special platter which let us sample lots of wonderful tastes: Meat & Veggie Platter starts with an appetizer of Humus & Sabzi Mast, Salata with Feta Cheese, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread. The main dish includes Boneless Chicken Shish Kebab, Lamb Shish... More

We were totally surprised by the cuisine and their service. Afghani food is excellent and not spicy. In fact, their lamb dish was the best lamb I have ever eaten and that says a lot. In addition, the chicken kebab was extremely flavourful and perfectly cooked. Every dish/platter/dessert eaten was a highlight. In addition, the service was prompt and friendly.... More

My friend had her birthday party here a few days ago. We made the reservation a week ahead and called the restaurant the day before our party to confirm they were able to serve a group of 10 people. They said no problem, they had our reservation. So we thought things were in order. However, just three hours before our... More

The food was good and the decor is authentic all be it a little dusty and outdated. The food was overcooked and way too much garlic was used. It took the staff 40 minutes to clear the table after we finished eating. The music was turned on and off and was too loud.

What an adventure! We sat at low tables in a large room with billowy material on the ceiling that created a feeling of sitting in a tent in the desert (it was nice and warm). The walls were decorated with photos and hunting equipment. The waitress was friendly and helpful and had a sense of humour. We started with a... More
