About the restaurant
*Please call us for large group reservations*

Afghan Kitchen is the manifestation of a young boy’s dream. He roamed the streets of Kabul in his sandals and saw how hard his family worked to sustain themselves. In the times of war, they moved to different neighbouring countries until they finally came to Canada.

Afghan Kitchen presents you the vision of the young boy’s very own restaurant since he was six years old. Every corner of Afghan Kitchen is thoughtfully curated. Every dish uses mum’s recipe.

This is a family-owned and -run business that reflects the best of Afghan roots, traditions, and values. Afghan Kitchen is the taste of home.

I always enjoy the whole grilled branzino with the jewelled rice. If you are really hungry add a salad. No one does a branzino like Byblos, after that you can try the other dishes. I also enjoyed the spirit free ginger drink, I think it is called a moscow mule. Strong ginger flavour and a good kick, hence the mule reference.

Always love coming to Fresh. Love the new “bundle for 2 deal”. My friend and I ordered the e same main and were pleased, however, I noticed they were not plated equally. Her plate had a lot more noodles than mine! The icing on our shared piece of cake seemed a bit dried out, as though exposed to air but we did not mind and enjoyed it anyway! The hot chocolate was divine. Service was very attentive.

About the restaurant
The word ‘Miijidaa’ is from the Ojibway language that loosely translates to “let’s eat”. It's a celebration of our roots, foods, wine + brews; a chance to showcase cuisines that influenced our culinary landscape and to show off our northern bounty.

There are many influences in what has come to define "Canadian" cuisine starting with the First Nations, followed by the influences of the French, English, Vikings, Portuguese and more. Our menu is a modern take on our northern gastronomic history with each cuisine and tradition inspiring the tapestry of our culinary landscape that we hope to celebrate on our menu.
