Please try their Irani machhi tikka and Mahi kebab along with their amazing cocktail - kaafila-e-paanch: a heady mix of five types of rum with cola. Love their service.

Kaafila is one of our favourite hang outs. We liked all the things we have tried here. Their kababs and naans are outstanding. Meat is marinated so well, it almost melts in your mouth. Last kaafila adventure included the khandani naan - it's different. Definitely worth trying once. Their packaging for take away or of left overs is done so... More

We are quite regular here and every time (if we are more than 5) we order Kandahari Laham. Its very tasty and Kaafila is really consistent. We really like their kebab / tandoor items and if you prefer to try... More

The décor is of a north Indian frontier with carpets giving the aura. The food is just too good especially tandoori items.

I have been going back to this place a few times, but probably not any time soon now. AS much as the quality of food has gone down, the service quality has deteriorated as well. The food was much better earlier. But the service is what hit me real bad, If you are unable to attend guests properly at a... More
