Afanti is owned and run by a family from Xinjiang, a province in the far north west of China. The culture is more Middle Eastern and therefore so is their food! Lots of lamb, spices, and breads.

Yummy!

We came here for a few work functions because they have some private rooms and the food is bountiful! Not too overpriced either. It is my friend's favourite place- he approves of the food and he is from Uzbekistan so I think that says something. We had a great time with cheap beers and bottomless... read more

This is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with pretty good Uighur food. There are dozens of these in Xiamen, so I don't understand the hype for this place. I took a cab to the Afanti from across town and was very disappointed. I don't mind the cheap furniture and filthy bathroom - that's 90% of Chinese restaurants - but the food was... More

Walked all the way to this place from the Wyndham based on these reviews and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Great little place with rustic charm in the decor and some serious skills in the kitchen. One waiter spoke a little English, but our bad Chinese was good enough to get the "dishes of the house". We got... More

I relied totally on tripadviser advice on getting to look for this small place. It was worth it. PLace was filled with Uighurs, all but us, and local language was only spoken. Chinese is of course ok, but Englsih not so. They do have good picks of everything they have so no prob. To complete the 'localisation', you can choose... More

What something different from your standard Chinese fare, Xinjiang food will definitely do the trick, especially for their Lamb dishes. Relatively simple decorations but very good hearty Muslim dishes and very reasonable prices.

My friend and I wanted to have some local food and this place popped up on the app. After reading the other 2 reviews on Afanti, I thought we should give it a try. We needed some help from the concierge to get directions for taxi, but we found it no problem. We got there about 8:00 on a Friday... More

After having read the previous review earlier today we took the decision to eat here this evening. Excellent food and we agree totally with the previous reviewer the lamb and nan bread "salad" was above and beyond. We had a chicken and potato dish which was very tasty but I personally could live with fewer bones and more meat or... More

Uighur food is everywhere in Xiamen, but Afanti takes the cake. If you don't know what I mean by Uighur food, the ethnicity of the people here is closer to that of Turkish of Middle Eastern and therefore their food is not your classic Chinese affair. Some of my favorite dishes (which I don't know how to say) are their... More
