Description: We at the Khyber Pass in Kampala bring you the recipes of FRONTIER TAWA TANDOOR [CLAY POT] COOKING. These recipes are prepared by our renowned International Chefs, prepared with care for your enjoyment. Khyber Pass is a mountain Pass in Western Asia and is the most important pass connecting Afghanistan and India. The Khyber Pass winds northwest through the Sefid Koh Rang near Peshawar. The Pass is walled by precipitous cliffs that vary in height from 150 to 300 metres. The Pass reaches it's highest elevation at the frontier between Afghanistan and Pakistan prior to its entering India. It has witnessed the marchs of Aryans, Persians, White Huns, Selijuks, Tartars, Mongols, Sassanians, Turks, Mughals and Durranis as they made successive inroads into territories beyond the Peshawar Valley and Indus. With them came remarkable "Frontier Cuisines". This diversity of Cuisines, with the influence of the Indian Civilization they journeyed through, produced exotic dishes which seemed to spring from the very land itself. The Aryans descended upon the fertile Northern plains in 1500 B.C., Subjugating the indigenous dravidian population and settled down to open a glorious chapter in the history of civilisation and the art of FRONTIER TAWA TANDOOR [CLAY POT] COOKING. The Persians hordes under Darius [6 Century B. C.] Descended into the Punjab to annex yet another province to the Archaemenian Empire. Here the art of TANDOR COOKING was a way of life. It is this Pass, through which the subcontinent was invaded time and again by conquerors like Baber, Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali. These conquerors again brought the Mughals' cuisines with them. The story of the Khyber Pass is composed of much colour and romance, such tragedy and glory makes Frontier Cuisine look stranger than fiction. The Khyber Pass has been a silent witness to countless different varieties of cuisines and the art of frontier cooking in the history of mankind. As one enjoys the delicacy of frontier cooking it unfolds the pages of history.

I've been eating at this restaurant for more than 10 years. The food has been consistenly very good. The service is sometimes a bit slow, but the waiters are usually trying hard. As for the ambience, you can choose between sitting inside and outside - both places are quite comfortable.

I have traveled to Kampala 14 times in the last four years. Our group will usually eat here a couple of times a week. Nice outdoor environment only adds to the great food. I always ask the manager to suggest a dish for our group.
