We found this restaurant randomly and I have to admit this was a really nice surprise. You must try the Wakha platter which is a combination of different grilled meat accompanied by a very flavorful rice. Staff was really nice and the atmosphere is quite authentic.

This is the best restaurant in dubai with amazing food quality, freshly made, and with delicious taste! Don’t forget to check this place for some delicious laralayee lamb karahi, shinwari chicken and lamb karahi and chapli kebabs! Hands down the best afghani food!!

Excellent peshwari/Afghani food which is a must try. We tried lamb karahi and dumpukht. Karahi n naan were finger licking. The staff is courteous and accomodating. The place itself is pretty congested and always full. There's almost always a waiting time n u have to stand outside the restaurant waiting for your turn. This is about Barsha branch. The food was really good and actually delectable but we got an upset stomach the next day which was sad. The menu is pretty unique so its a must try still. Not sure how i feel about the appetizer which is salad veggies given to you whole with a bland knife.

Whenever we are out of ideas what to eat we always go for Wakha. Their mixed grill platter is the one which we always order. Whether it’s a delivery or takeaway.
It’s a platter for 2 but believe me we 4 can eat nicely. 100 dhms and you don’t need to go for anything else. Literally your mouth will not stop.
Meat is very fresh and tender. It’s an authentic afghani restaurant. Must try.
