The soothing Irani music really makes the place feel more authentic. And if you have managed to find Chopaan after zigzagging through the lanes of Lajpat Nagar, you need to know you have come home to a winner. We ate a lot of food – but the 'Mutton Qorma' and the 'Kazan Kebab' are really spectacular. But that 'Uzbeki Pulav' is something that needs to be eaten at the earliest – to know how good it is. Finally, the 'Turkish Baklava' is not to be missed, and if you do not have space for it, take it away. The service is super quick and efficient and there will always be a line waiting outside for the meal.
Had gone with family today and the food we order was a random guess..As we are not familar with Afghan food.. But food served was full of taste and the flavors remaining for hours.. Each dish was served with rice and salad.. had orders mutton and chicken both were well prepared and we'll presented. I compliment the chef and all the other staff who were polite and very helpful. And one specific thing which is very impressive is the wash room which is super clean and has a proper soap / tissue etc. Want to congratulate each member of the establishment for keeping such a standard.

The place is decent from within and there are 2 types of seatings - 1 is the standard chair and table and the other is the Afghan style where food is layed on the centre and you all sit around it with folded legs. What disappointed me was the food. I had ordered Qorma-E-Gosht which was supposed to be spice but it wasn't (also, it didn't seem to be mutton as the bones were of some different shape) Mutton Shahlik tasted good but it wasn't cooked well. It was half raw. The Uzbeki pulav came with rajma and it tasted so bad. Utterly disappointed with the food.
Lajpat Nagar has witnessed a proliferation of restaurants serving Afghan cuisine over the last few years and chopan Kebab is one of them offering the most delicious Uzbek, Iranian and Afghani delicacies right from the Yakhnis to kababs to main course. Inviting ambience with some nice paintings on the walls, comfortable sitting wonderful presentation of the food, Surahis and kettles serving you some nice green tea etc and the food which is less on spices but tasteful is what one experiences at this gem in Lajpat Ngar. Green and black tea areserved complimentary to the diners. What fascinated me about the food here was that all the dishes were minimal on spices and high on actual taste of the meat especially the mutton starters. The presentation was inviting to say the least and the taste awesome. Must Visit !!
There are a plethora of Afghan restaurants in Lajpat Nagar. Chopaan Kebab is the latest kid in the block. The restaurant has positioned itself on the fine-dine side, with plush interiors and seating arrangements. Most prices are similar to other fine-dine restaurants in Delhi, but they have priced their kebabs a little costlier. The kebabs also come in platter. The rice makes it a platter. The taste is authentic, but the platter bit with the kebabs could have been avoided as one may just be interested in combining the varieties of pulaos with the kebabs. The staff is well-trained and are well versed in both English and Hindi. Effective communication is very essential in a restaurant serving international cuisine as guests tend to ask a lot of questions to the waiter so that they can place the perfect order. Other Afghan restaurants tend to serve complimentary side dishes such as rajma and a dip made of curd and brinjal. Chopan generally does not do that unless you request for it. The only complimentary dish they serve is the tandori roti. The complimentary green tea was also missing. A must visit for discerning diners looking for a new place to enjoy Afghani cuisine.
