We finally made it to the Afghan after passing by the window for the last 6 years and always saying we must go. This certainly isn't the place to linger; the communal seating is incredibly cosy and relatively uncomfortable but the food made the experience worthwhile. We ordered three meat and two vegetable dishes between four of us which, alongside the rice and bread, was just about right. Both the fish and pumpkin mains were particularly memorable and most unlike any other curry we have ever had. The bread is quite different too; much harder and more wholesome in texture than Naan. We had to remind the waitress about our Qurma Suhzi Gosht (lamb with spinach) dish and were rewarded with free baklava at the end of the meal for the delay – a nice touch. The lamb dishes were good; reminiscent of Indian-style curries. While the prices and portions are reasonable, the alcohol isn't; expect to pay at least £15 for a bottle of wine.
