Naan & Kabob is Where to Get the Best Afghan Food in Toronto

Naan & Kabob is Where to Get the Best Afghan Food in Toronto

I was kindly invited to a complimentary tasting by Naan & Kabob and chose to write a review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Naan & Kabob is one of the latest additions to the Yonge & Bloor food scene, and it’s a must-visit for anyone who enjoys strong flavours and Afghan cuisine.

You’ll find a variety of traditional Afghan dishes, all made using preservative-free halal ingredients.

They’ve also got vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Here’s everything you need to try at Naan & Kabob, one of the best Afghan food spots in Toronto.

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

A chic and modern Afghan tea room

Naan & Kabob’s new downtown space is very contemporary, and even features a modern communal tea room.

It’s perfect for catching up with friends or having tea meetings (’cause it ain’t always about coffee).

The space is just as vibrant as the food!

What to order at Naan & Kabob


Naan & Kabob serves up some of the best Afghan food in Toronto.

Here’s a look at the menu and what you should order while you’re there!

Afghan-style appetizers

We had the chance to try a bunch of different dishes, and they were all so good.

It was my first time eating at an Afghan restaurant, and I found the dishes and flavours pretty similar to Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisines.

First up, we had the Mantu dumplings ($10.99), which were filled with sautéed onions and ground beef, and drizzled with seasoned yogurt and split peas.

They were super flavourful and delicious!

The Fattoush Salad ($5.99) was made with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cucumber, and fried pita chips, and tossed in lemon garlic dressing.

The fried pita chips were so addicting to munch on!

The Bolanee ($6.99) is a lightly grilled naan stuffed with potatoes, green onions, and herbs, and served with a side of homemade yogurt.

Adam and I loved every single dish we had, but the Bolanee was our absolute favourite.

We couldn’t stop eating it no matter how full we were!

For drinks, we tried the Doogh ($2.29), a traditional mint yogurt drink, and Mango Smoothie (3.99), blended with mango and milk.

The Doogh had a very unique and sour taste, which definitely isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The Mango Smoothie was very sweet!

Kabobs for the main course

The N&K Grill plate ($16.99) features a mix of Tandori chicken, shish kabob, and classic chicken, alongside homestyle scented rice, house salad, freshly baked naan, and white sauce.

For vegetarians, there’s a grilled kabob plate with grilled cottage cheese!

Tea and baklava for dessert

For dessert we had the Blended Tea ($2.29), which was a mix of green, oolong, and white tea, with cardamom, ginger, and brown sugar.

This was one of the best teas I’ve ever had!

I’ll definitely be back just to drink Blended Tea in the Afghan tea room.

We also had the Baklava for dessert, and it was divine.
