Located at City Centre, Salt lake, the restaurant has some of the unique and delicious offerings for the tummy. The overall ambiance and the seating arrangements is top notch with a rusty "haveli" look. The food served was hoot and delicious with the specialities turning out to be the biriyani, layered parathas and the lamb starter. Usually the place is... More

Extensive menu options. Both veg and non veg food were great. We tried panner chatpata and kofta curry which were very well made.panner was extremely tender. Our friends were mentioning the Non veg food was good too. Non alcoholic drinkers must try fresh gold. Ambience was pleasant and seatings were comfortable.

2 items I shall like to have every time with a group of 4. Kandahhari Lahm and Tehri Murg. Kabab Platter is also delicious and dont miss the variuos types of naans, paranthas and Kulchas Food is very expensive, no doubt, but they definitely maintain the Afghani style. You can't eat much as food is really heavy. So compared to... More

Well Kaafila to me came across as another overpriced "Mall Restaurant" . The ambiance has not changed since its inception 7 years back and the complimentary poppadoms has vanished from the table. The menu does have some non regular dishes but nothing which can be termed as extraordinary. We had a mutton preparation which was well cooked and suited our... More

The food served was really worth praising. The kebabs were excellent especially the Kakori Kebabs, they melted away. The layered parathas were well prepared. The decor is well done to give it a rustic look. Make reservations beforehand.

I have visited this place a couple of times.. The theme and ambiance of this place is just awesome... Regarding the food, its a bit costlier than average but the quality of the food exceeds the price. I would suggest people to visit this place once atleast

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.

Kafila is North West Frontier Province themed restaurant specialising in cuisines from that area. The decor and ambiance replicates the rustic charm of Af-Pak border areas. The walls are adorned with rifles, double barrel guns, hand guns, swords etc. The restaurant is lit with faux lanterns and some of the seating also has carpet partitions hung from the ceiling. The...

The title says it all. The chicken tihari is lip smacking dish. The waiters are a bit over concerned but then who complains about over indulgence when you are in the city of Joy
