Though admittedly there’s not much competition, Afghan Cuisine is one of the best Afghani restaurants in Dubai.

I have to say this restaurant is perfect in every way except the decoration which needs some renewals and the tables as well.Other than that the waiters are super friendly, the management is engaged and fast reactors. I would say it is the best restaurant in international city.

After the renovation and change of ownership, the new Afghan Cuisine in International City is a disappointment compared to its predecessor!

There are no more succulent, mouth watering lamb chops or any of those surprisingly delightful mantu's on the menu!

Where can i go now to get some good Afghani Food?

Sniff sniff!!! The owner with a 'californian drawl' has sold Afghan Cuisine. I am saddened to see the 'CLOSED - Under Renovation' sign on the doors! Im gonna miss the Chopan Kababs and Mantu!

I hope the new restaurant can live up to his predecessor...

First of all would like to thank the owners of this awesome restaurant for their hospitality, service and commitment. I invited my colleagues for lunch party, after pre-arranging with the owners. They committed to provide us with nice & tasty Afghani traditional dishes with good enough quantity which will surely be a memorable experience! And trust me guys, it was definitely a memorable experience. For most of my colleagues who belonged to different nationalities this was the first experience of having Afghani food to which they were reluctant in the beginning but after they had this food they didn't stop talking about it and will remember for a long time. Thanks to every member of AFGHAN CUISINE Restaurant. Keep it up guys! May Allah(swt) bless you with more success & prosperity!

I do take aways or home delivery twice a week. The food, as I would describe is as 'wholesome' and gives a feeling of 'home cooked'. The mantu (Dumplings) is quite refreshing and builds one's appetite for the main course! The grills are very very tender and juicy. I especially love the lamb!!! The rice on its own is yummy. Simply mouth watering...

And after a very satisfying meal, try their black tea!

hmmm... i think im gonna order there tonight...

2nd visit to this restaurant wasnt very good, not happy with the mutton karayi as it was all boney.. however the price is really reasonable.

Brilliant review, thanks for showing us more of the ' real side of dubai'. The restaurant is cheap, and your description was very encouraging. Plus it's not located in Madinat Jumeirah! wow. lol Cant wait to check it out and will post again afterwards.

Great food and real good value for money, kofta curry(meat ball curry) with rice and mantu was really good and filling :)

WOW!!!!!!!! Food is GReat.....and the owner is a very friendly person who is willing to serve your needs.
The cost is excellent.......I would recommend this place for anyone ....just sit back and enjoy a homecooked meal. From my experience all their food is freshly made on site and is done with in minutes of your request...so ..really worth trying them out.
Enjoy ....Afghan food as never before and get hooked...: )

My boyfriend and I loved this restaurant. The owner is super friendly and the food is unreal! Thinking about the mantu makes my mouth water. All food is homemade and fresh which we very much appreciate. We read the Time Out Dubai review then drove a distance to get there with high hopes...we were not disappointed! We are big food lovers and have eaten at many places in Dubai from high end hotels to down to earth restaurants/cafes. We without a doubt go back here...probably sooner rather than later! I'm extremely impressed...this is the first time I have found a restaurant worthy of taking the time to write a review.
