The best Afghani Kebabs I ever had.....

I dine out a lot and has afghani kabobs in LA, NYC, Seattle, Baltimore and of course in Toronto and was surprised of this joint right across from Vaughan Mills Mall couple of minutes south of Wonderland. You walk in and it looks like Bamiyan. I would say it is like Bamiyan Kabob but better. I tried their Sultani Kabob and my wife had the Boneless Tandoori Dinner with a skewer of Chapli. Meat is tender and soft and the rice which had a scent of cinnamon was out of this world. The naan is wholte wheat and better than Pamier kabob and Bamiyan. The staff is friendly and courteous. Prices are reasonable. The only thing I did not like was that they don't have waiters. I think that is reflected in the price, because where else can you get lambchops for around 10 dollars. Something else that surprised me were their Strawberry Sundaes which taste better than Mc Donalds. Unfortunately, I live in Mississauga otherwise I would frequent this place regularly. 5 stars.

    There's a new place in Brampton I'm wondering about, if it's any good or not.

    It's right across from Canada Computers in the Arby's plaza at Queen & Rutherford, it's called Mr. Kabob I believe.. Seems to be open somewhat late too, saw lights on there at around 11pm which is nice to see since everything else in the neighbourhood closes so early

      @duckdown tried Mr. Kabob. It is right next to Kabul Farm. I didn't like it at all. Only upside are the late hours.

      I tried this place a few weeks back as well, and agree with your sentiments.

      Bamiyan is good and the standard that all Afghani restaurants are judged against in the GTA.

      But this place surprised me. The chaplee kabob was more authentic and flavourful. The naan was whole wheat and a nice touch. The chicken tikka was nice and juicy, but not as good as Bamiyans.

      Overall a good find and Kabob Expresss is a great place when in the area.
