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.

We had never been to Berkeley North before but friends had convinced us to make a reservation. Glad we did! The food was phenomenal, the drinks were some of the best we’ve ever had. The atmosphere was quant, trendy, and intimate. The staff were incredibly helpful, very knowledgeable, friendly, and made our dinner experience that much better than it already was! Berkeley North was also very conscious of dietary restrictions and had many options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free! HIGHLY recommend this restaurant, 10/10!

SO delicious - if you've been thinking of it, just book it! We got the fattoush salad with fried halloumi, fried brussel sprouts, roz asfar, and the beef lahmajoun and pulled lamb pides - it just seemed to get better and better! There was a slight delay in getting our first drinks (they were busy, not surprised), but our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. I'm glad we sat where we did, it was so nice and cozy.

They were experiencing a short staffed kitchen which resulted in an abnormally long wait times for most tables. We could see the stress on the staff's faces. However, what allowed them to regain their 5 star standing in my book was their professionalism in remedying the situation. They acknowledged their faults and made up for it in a way that was surprising. This is how any high-end restaurant should handle a situation like this. They also didn't compromise on the food quality despite their short staff. Great job for recovering from this very stressful situation. I will come back 100%.

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.

The second floor houses the grand Sala da Pranzo and Bar delle Carceri, named after the cells below. Il Covo degli Artisti, our third-floor space is a cosy lounge once home to The Arts and Letters Club where Canadian landscape painters “The Group of Seven” ate and drank in 1909.
