NWFP and Afghani theme restaurant

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... read more

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.

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

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

The choice of restaurant for dinner was made by our very well informed friend cum host for the evening. He had considered the type and quality of cuisine apart from the logistics of time and distance. The name 'Kaafila' brought forth visions of a convoy of camels trudging through a desert. As the five of us entered the restaurant on... More

There is just one item here that will sweep you off your feet, The Kandahari Laham. It is a whole rear portion of a lamb, cooked with awesome spices and served in style with flames rising from the meat. Simply awesome.

Well it was suggested by a friend and I had taken my grandmothers with me to treat them. I was skeptic whether they will like it or not. But believe me no one could keep their praises. It's basically a Arab theme restaurant and the restaurant has gone all the length to say so in each aspects, whether it be... More
