The interior is spacious and beautifully decorated with traditional Uyghur designs. The seatings are well laid out, leaving plenty of rooms to seat groups of up to 6 people. Stone veneers and wooden accents are used throughout the space which helps to elevate the elegance of the restaurant. This is a great spot to visit for a nice casual meal with family and friends.

This restaurant specializes in four different cuisines including kebabs, noodles, soups, and dapanji – which are their handmade noodles that are served with your choice of meats. A favourite here is their lamb kebabs. The seasoning and marinade used on this dish are so good that they’ll leave you drooling just from the smell alone. The meat itself is incredibly tender and it’s best enjoyed with their bread which does a good job of soaking up all the juices and flavour of the lamb. This dish typically takes around 25 minutes to prepare, but it’s definitely worth the wait.

Another go-to is the lamb soup. This soup is the perfect dish to warm you up during the cold Toronto winter or if you’re just craving something hearty. The lamb in the soup is super tender and it’s topped with loads of green onion and cilantro to create a rich and flavourful broth. Better not plan anything after eating this dish, as you’ll be in a food coma once you finish it.

If this is your first time trying Uyghur cuisine in Toronto, there’s no better place to do it than The Charcoal Kebab House. All the food here is packed with flavour, and best of all everything served here is halal. Sometimes there might be a lineup, but the wait is well worth it!
