Specialising in Afghan cuisine, Afghan Charcoal Kebab Village provides something a bit different from the roast chickens served at many takeaways. As suggested by the name, Afghan Charcoal Kebab Village serves various types of kebabs, a Middle Eastern dish consisting of meat or vegetables grilled on a skewer. Lamb is the traditional option, but we chose to order the chicken kebabs and found them to be juicy and perfectly cooked. The spices used to flavour the chicken helped to bring out its flavour.

The 'Half a Chicken Meal' is similar to the chicken skewers, but uses half a chicken instead of chicken meat. Although it was not as juicy as the chicken skewers, it was still perfectly cooked with a wonderful flavour given by the spices. Both dishes came with rice and a salad whose refreshing flavour contrasted nicely with the grilled meat.

Originating from South Asia, biryani is a dish in which rice is fried with spices and meat with vegetarian versions leaving out the meat. It was cooked just right and the spices used in the chicken biryani served here gave it a flavour different from the biryanis served at other Indian restaurants I have eaten at. Most of the dishes also came with a serving of a yogurt sauce and a chilli sauce that you can dip or spread over the dish to provide an extra element of flavour.

Recently, they have started to expand their menu beyond kebabs but unfortunately the new dishes were not yet available at the time we ate there. We were able to eat their baked bread which is similar to flat breads. The bread was golden brown and fluffy but it is advisable to eat it quickly as it gets hard as it cools down.
