Kafila is a North West Frontier Province themed restaurant serving their delicacies. The chicken and lamb dishes are lip smacking. The decor is styled accordingly. The restaurant is almost full, so better make a reservation beforehand. And I am sure, you won't be disappointed.

As my tittle goes you will only find average quality afghan, Tandoori and mughlai cuisine at a very high price. The place is also bit congested and overall decoration is above average. Service standard is also below par. You actually could get better quality place within this mall itself.

As you enter Kafila you get impressed by the décor and the ambience that resembles like an Afghan tent/hut with Afghani rags on ceiling, Arabic music, rifles, swords and shields on walls...various brass and metal objects and strewn all around. Add to these the waiters who wear Afghani suits and make the setting perfect for the Afghani and north western... More

Whatever we ordered was served cold, not at all hot. So, even if the dish was supposed to be good, we couldn't enjoy it. Next, they make every single thing sweet - for example: we ordered for a supposedly spicy chicken gravy..which was sweet!!! the entire taste spoilt. Only thing I liked was the sweet we ordered - Ballowni, Price... More

This Place is good for family/friends/couples. Has a nice Ambience. Serves Liquor as well without making non-alcoholic diners uncomfortable. Must Try: Peach Pina Colada Tehari Murg (Serves 4) Kandhari Laham (Serves 4) Kakori Kebab
