Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I went back here with a friend for lunch, who has never eaten here, and overall had a mixed experience. She enjoyed her chicken main (excellent sauce!) and I my pumpkin with yogurt main. Spicy and tasty. I appreciate the waitress gave me a yogurt...side on the tours. The lentil dal was alright but I much prefer the smoky taste and potency of Dishoom’s dal. This had a slight peanut butter flavour, which was just odd (and I LOVE PB). The biggest downer of our meal was the ATROCIOUS baklava. Stale and sour, we each took one bite and put it down. It was apparently made the day before and the taste showed that. Bleh 🤢 Also dinking a star for cash only. We knew that going in and had cash ready, but in 2023 it’s dodgy and unacceptable to not accept card. Especially post-COVID! Service was also middling- had to grab the waitress’ attention twice.More

I love the Afghan Kitchen for it's very tasty, reliable, high quality food that is cooked 'homemade', with care and love, and so deliciously spiced. It is a no-frills restaurant in the best possible sense - the food speaks for itself, no need for schmooze....Eating in, there is always a buzz as it's a small, friendly space. Absolutely my favourite food to have delivered.More

Delicious home style cooking, eaten around a shared table. Amazing value for money. Best meal we had on a recent weekend away in London.

I first ate Habib's food when he first opened around quarter of a century ago. It was love at first bite. The menu had not changed since he started and there is a very good reason why. You cannot improve on perfection. Everything Habib makes...is truly excellent and very reasonably priced. 10/10More

Not even worth one star!!! Extremely arrogant owner who claims to be Muslim but is not Muslim friendly at all and asks you to leave if you question whether his meat was halal. Also sells alcohol so advice to Muslims is to steer clear and...go to Palm Palace on Edgware Road instead where the food is wholesome and delicious and you receive a more welcoming reception. Walked out with my family so wouldn't say it's family friendly either.More

My first experience with Afghan food, this small homely restaurant delivered an enjoyable experience. A small menu and communal tables added to the uniqueness of the restaurant with the home baked bread and chicken dish the highlights for me.

After a great holiday in France and Spain this home-coming meal was one of our absolute favourites of our trip. Super delicious chicken and lamb curries and the most amazing aubergines with yoghurt. Everything was perfect. Good value and very friendly service. We hope to...be back before long. ThanksMore

My daughter and I visited the Afghan Kitchen for the second time on 4 September. Once again they still only accept cash, four years on from our last visit for dinner. We duly withdrew cash from a nearby machine and ordered lunch, which was somewhat...expensive for what it was, including £3.50 for a bowl of rice and £7.00 for dhall. The non-itemised bill came to £25.00 which I paid. We left feeling underwhelmed by the microwaved meal itself and then realised the bill should have only been £21.00 and not the £25.00 charged - rather a generous rounding up by the manageress, which we figured out after we left. The food itself, whilst microwaved, was tasty, but not especially Afghan. I say that as someone who has lived in the country and visited over 40 times in recent years. Sad to say, we do not expect to make a third visit,More

We went there with our friends to celebrate birthday party. The restaurant is small and cosy and the food is to share. Meals were extremely delicious and we ordered extras. Waitresses were helping all the time. Overall, strongly recommended.

Fish dish was really lovely, NOT 'cod' as stated, but deliciously spicy. P'haps a little too oily. Friend enjoyed lamb dish. Service ok. No receipt. Would MAYBE come again.

Afgan Kitchen ia a nice restaurant with a friendly, smiling and helpful staff. I love these kind of restaurants, very easy going The menu is simple and the meals are tasty, maybe with small portions compared to what I supposed to have. For a starter,...a main dish and a drink, I paid £14. A good price. If you want to spend an easy night out for a simple meal with friends, go for it!!More
