Our Story

About us

Typical Afghani food consists of meat (usually lamb or chicken) and rice as staples, but adds to that distinctive curries and spices, such as turmeric, chili, coriander and fennel. Being landlocked between Central Asia, Iran and Pakistan, Afghan cuisine has Persian, Central Asian and Indian influences. Ashy's dishes are best described as warm, hearty home-style cooking. One of the many virtues of Ashy's Afghan is the consistency in what they serve. It’s what keeps our customers coming back. “We have been in business for over a decade. We are the only restaurant like ours in the area.

First time eating Afghan cuisine. I am impressed with the food. It was delicious and presented beautifully. The prawn dumplings was a nice surprise with an Asian structure and a Middle Eastern touch. Highly recommended. The service is excellent and is fully licensed.


Amazing food and amazing service! Staff are extremely friendly with a good sense of humour! 6 stars ✨✨


Uniquely delicious traditional Afghan dinner, especially the superb Kabuli Pallow, huge slow-cooked lamb shank that just beautifully melt in the mouth! Served with tasty Afghan Kabuli Rice.
