    Experience a new kind of Asian Cuisine at London's Afghan restaurants

    Are you tired of ordering the same vindaloo or korma every time you head out for an Indian meal? If you have moved beyond a weekly curry, checking out London's best Afghan restaurants is the perfect solution. Afghanistani food is related to Indian curries, but has many distinctive features. For instance, you'll find more pilafs (meat topped with rice that's cooked in spicy broth), as well as pastry-wrapped meat dumplings (known as mantu), and yoghurt-based dishes that aren't found in most Indian cuisines. So expect something different when you book tables at Afghan restaurants in London.

    Book an Afghanistani feast from some of the capital's best Asian eateries

    The city's Afghanistani population may not be as established as those from Pakistan, India or Bangladesh, but its most talented chefs are certainly making a name for themselves on the local dining scene. Whether you live in Kilburn or Canning Town, you'll find masterful chefs creating perfectly seasoned kebabs, koftas and aubergine side dishes. Each place has its own emphasis, whether it's a focus on lamb or a flair for vegetarian food. What the Afghan restaurants in London share is the ability to create superb, authentic dishes that evoke the tastes and aromas of their homeland.

    Dive into the unique cuisine at London's Afghan restaurants

    Not everything revolves around meat in Afghanistan's food culture (although meat fans will be delighted by what they find). There's plenty for vegetarians to enjoy when they book tables at Afghan restaurants in London as well. Look out for dishes like badenjan (aubergines cooked with potatoes and tomatoes), as well as quroot, a kind of sour cottage cheese which combines beautifully with spinach and other vegetables. Add in sweets like kulcha and khoujoor, and the Afghan restaurants in London have something for every diner to adore.
