“A MUST Try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Afghani food? well, we were visiting Vancouver - staying at the Granville Island hotel... saw this place and all the awards it has won, so we tried it... VERY happy we did!!! We shared a platter, and it was amazing!!! The lamb shoulder was the BEST lamb we have ever had - excellent!!!

We tried a few other specialty items like some of their drinks... some were amazing, one was so so... gf didn't care for the one... BUT the waiter was awesome... he brought out a sample of that drink saying it's an acquired taste which was extremely nice of the waiter (personally I liked it,,)

It's one of those places that you need to visit at least once - and I suspect you will then return again...

“Excellent Afghani”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We've eaten here a few times over the years and it never disappoints. Very busy at weekends so worth booking. Food is traditional Afghan with the best grilled lamb I've ever had and some great veggie choices - my partner had a Veggie Lovers plate with kabeli rice, cheese ravioli and other bits he loved. We were there on a Friday night and also got to experience the belly dancer (who was very good compared to some I've seen). Great food and friendly service

“Best middle eastern food in Vancouver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food. Service a bit slow but food well worth it. Belly dancer was great. Make a reservation to get the pillow room. Or one of the private booths for a more intimate and special evening.

Good service, plentiful and tasty food. The belly dancer turn was brief and she expected a tip but it was fun.
