Afghani food in Kolkata

Last visited Kaafila in Aug'14. Been there twice. And on both occasions, ordered Dezaje Masluqe. It’s a must have, if you like tandoor items and a hard-core fan of non-veg like me. When we visited first in June'14, we were the last ones to enter the restaurant, and as we were pressed against... read more

It gives a feel of Afganistan, The food quality here is very very good..the decor is quite amazing..especially the central area..the staff are very courteous thought the food takes time to be served. A request to the Hotel management that please include more vegetarian items in the menu.

This place is very good, stuffs are also very nice and helpful. Foods are great and also reasonable price. Located in City Center 1 (Saltlake). I went there on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with my family and it was a nice experience. The food quality is really nice and well cooked. Stuffs are nice and responding quickly.

Starting with the ambience..really very different giving a wow feel..coming to food which is really great.. one of the best indian food i have ate. One should surely try the kesar firni which is outstanding too. Service is also great and friendly..Keep it up team Kaafila.

the restaurant is quite small with only one table for groups of more than 6-7. so book in advance. were recommended their signature dishes - kandahari laham & dezaje masluqe. the first is raan (shoulder of goat) and the second chicken drumsticks - both done in tandoor. while the second was succulent & delicious, the former was a major disappointment....

Kaafila was almost impossible to find, hiding away on the third floor of the shopping mall. However, if you experience the same, do not give up!! - persistence is well rewarded by excellent food, stylish service and, although expensive by Indian standards, a fairly priced meal. We shared a whole leg of lamb, based on others' reviews, a veg dish... More

Visited last week with family. This restaurant is located in City Centre1 mall. Ambience was good, they tried to create the spartan atmosphere of a tent somewhere in Pak north west or Afghanistan. We ordered the non veg platter, and liked it. Naan and paratha were also good. Main course was ok. Whenever visit kaafila, may try the non veg... More

Surely of late, the city Kolkata has evolved regarding cinema, music, fashion and of course the culinary experimentations. The city is throbbing with restaurants, food parlours, bars, roadside dhabas, hotels that not only serve traditional foods but bring various foods to familiarize kolkatans with foods from various lands. One of the best eat out stop for me is Kaafila; the... More
