Afghan Kitchen London Reviews

CONSISTENTLY FANTASTIC FOOD - I have been eating at Afghan Kitchen for well over a decade and their food is just great. If you like Mughlai style north Indian food (the majority of which is rubbish in the UK) then this is THE place to come to. Their standards have never dropped and they're always busy. My favourite is the lamb with spinach and chicken with yoghurt.

When friends and relatives from India are visiting and feel like having something they're familiar with, I always get Afghan Kitchen food and they're always very happy - testament to its authentic home cooked flavours.

Given the low prices this has got to be one of the best eating places in London.

Popular destination - I am totally converted to lamb -I found it stinky and oily, and tried to master lamb trauma many times with no success until yesterday - after a visit to Afghan kitchen. I love their simple menu that doesn't confuse with too much choice.

Lamb with spinach is sublime, soft and tender meat, with intense flavour, all served with rice or red lentils mash...pumpkin, aubergine all in creamy, thick yogurt sauce, great bread ( sort of naan) - Amazing food to share. Once it's served the interior doesn't matter any more.

There's also chicken, fish but as above - Laaaamb!
Go for the lamb!

Afghanistan definately is the travel destination these days and I bet it's thank to the food!

Now I've tried Afghan food - The Afghan Kitchen was recommended to us about 2 years ago from a tailor in Marylebone. She was Afghanistan and said if we wanted good Afghan food, to go here. Since that time, we have moved to Islington so it made sense for us to finally try it. My husband actually took me there for Valentine’s Day before we went to see a play. My all means it wasn’t romantic and it’s small place (or at least the ground floor is) with one large table that is shared with other patrons. It felt more like a takeaway place than a restaurant as you can see the daily dishes at the counter even though a waitress takes your order.

The food it simple yet tasty, very similar to Indian curries but creamier, using yogurt. We shared the chicken with yogurt and spinach as well as the roasted pumpkin with yogurt and then the chickpea-type Dahl which was so good – chunky chickpeas instead of just a puree. Both were really good although the meat dishes had much more flavour (and eat a lot of vegetarian cuisine).

Definitely another option for our takeaway meals.
