I went to the Afghan Kitchen before a saturday night in Islington on the back of reviews I had read. It did just the job! I'd never had Afghan food before, and was impressed. The owner is an Afghani former Channel 4 camera man who came to England almost 30 years ago. The small menu was refreshing in its simplicity. I had the aubergines in yoghurt, and my friend the lamb. We wanted bread, but the lady (the owner's wife I think) who also does the cooking, said the bread is delivered fresh later in evening, so we had the rice only. The food was simple and tasty. The meal came quickly, and the service friendly and efficient. The food is all prepared in advance, which leads to microwave use, but I didn't mnd that, as it was lovely. I expected the interior to be a bit more ‘rough and ready’ but it was quite modern . As we left, there were people ordering food to take away. Next time I'd love to try the fish stew! If you're in the area, and want a tasty bite, definitely reccommend The Afghan Kitchen for a good value, and novel meal.
