Khyber Pass is a very cosy restaurant that gives you the sensation of being in a cave...with stunning carpets and tapestries. Your meal begins with a thick bread and 3 complimentary dipping sauces. I would have preferred a thinner bread like Pita and the bread itself wasn’t great....though the sauces were interesting.

I had the vegetarian plate that was delicious and my friends enjoyed the filet mignon brochettes and the meatballs in tomato sauce. Each plate came with a very large portion of tri-coloured rice and salad. I would have preferred to have had a second salad and much less rice.....but ate the whole portion of rice as did my friends. Though not inexpensive, it was very tasty. Friendly service. A very different atmosphere. And BYOB to boot. I would go back!

Small and pleasant restaurant. Very good meals.
Better to do reservation because not many places.
Good service and you may carry our wine (you will save a small fortune...hihi).

Referred here by front-desk worker at our hotel. What a wonderful surprise. Excellent food. I especially loved the red-lentil soup. I hope to get back here soon.

This was our second time here. The last was a few years back and I was happy that the quality of food was still great. We all ordered the lamb shank and were very happy with our choice.

It was quite busy, so service was a tad slow, but the food was worth it.

This is a bring your own wine place. Fortunately, the SAQ is just a block away.

We will like visit again in the future.
