“Safe option for foreigners”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This resturant is quite modern, really liked the interior. Easy to find, well known by taxi drivers. We arrived at 8 and it was pretty empty and we were worried we had made a mistake but by 8.30 the resturant was full. The menu is quite vast, loads to choice from and our waiter was great very helpful, smiley and kept trying to add more onto our plates when we we totally full!
Yes the resturant is a little more expensive than others but I felt totally safe eating here so for me it was the worth the few extra pounds. It was really clean and the food was of a high standard

“Australians dine at Khyber”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The food was very good and the service was excellent. The manager helped us a lot with selection of menu items as there are so many to choose from. The restaurant was recommended by our guide Mala Bangera and it was really worth the visit even though it is a bit more expensive, it is justified by the high standard and presentation. The inside can be a bit dark on some walkways and steps and in places the ceiling is a little low.

“Pricey but Lovely”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I enjoyed the Afghani Chicken and a lassi at Khyber during lunchtime and found my order to be taken promptly, and it arrived quickly as well-- a welcome surprise. Service was attentive (perhaps even too much?) and the food was tasty. I agree with earlier comments-- it is indeed pricey when compared to other restaurants, but the portions are sizable and the atmosphere is inviting. I'd recommend this for a special occasion.

“Meh”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Apart from the beautiful front door, there's little to be impressed by at Khyber. The food was fine, but certainly not by any stretch remarkable. The service was OK - they forgot to bring us our mineral water, but not to charge us for it. It is clean and air conditioned, and I suppose stylish in a weird modern meets faux mountain house kind of way, but you're much better heading off the beaten path to find something smaller and tastier.
