One of the signature dishes at the Afghan Kitchen is the lamb shank, which is slow-cooked in a tomato-based sauce with a blend of spices. The result is a tender and juicy meat that falls off the bone, accompanied by a bed of fluffy rice and a side of fresh herbs.

Cute place with an upstairs area overlooking the trees on Islington green. The food was amazing, the aubergine was my favourite. Rounded off with a super tasty desert. I loved this no-fuss place and will definitely be back.
