Patrons here can expect recipes from the owner’s own mother, made with some serious skill and love.

Diners can expect key menu items such as the Northern Afghan dish of Kabuli Palaw (rice, raisins, carrots, pistachio), the AK Soup (chicken and corn), and Aushak (stuffed with leeks and spices, and topped with yogourt, cilantro, and chickpeas). AKA Afghan Dumplings will also be on the menu.

Many dishes are or can be made vegan/vegetarian as well.

For drinks, this eatery provides a selection of both BC and international wines and bubbles, along with local craft beers including Faculty Brewing Co., Strange Fellows, Steel & Oak, Hoyne, and Four Winds.

A selection of smoothies, juices, Oddity Kombucha on tap, and artisan cocktails – inspired by the Afghan culture and cuisine – will also be up for order.

Afghan Kitchen even has a separate “Afghan Room” which offers traditional Afghan floor seating, where guests will be seated comfortably without shoes on.

Family-owned and family-operated, Afghan Kitchen sounds a fantastic place to head with friends and loved ones when you’re in need of some grub.
