welcome to our restaurant!

Arabian Nights is a family business which was
started in Kitwe in 1993. Since inception, there has been a real passion to serve delicious meals in which there was no compromise on freshness, quality, hygiene and healthiness.

This principle is central to our cuisine and every
dish we develop is prepared using the best
ingredients available. This means buying only
the finest cuts of meat and vegetables daily direct from local farms and suppliers.

Naturally this comes at a cost but we believe the results are self- evident in the quality and freshness of our food. We never compromise on the quality and would rather say we don’t have an item, than buy a cheap quality ingredient.

Our menu offers something for everybody. There are traditional Pakistani dishes like Afghani Kebab and Lamb Karahi, classic Continental dishes like Braised Oxtail and even a delightfully tasty range of salads and wraps. We offer game meat for those “wild at heart” guests who want to sample the taste of African venison. Vegetarians have a number of dishes to choose from and kids also have their own section.

Innovation is a continuous activity for us and we are always developing new dishes to push the
“gastronomic envelope” of our clients. We have just opened our own Ice-Cream & Dessert
Parlour – “Vanilla”,  right next to our restaurant. From here we serve coffees, ice-creams and the most luxurious desserts around!! There are take-aways as well as eat-ins.

Finally, we welcome feedback. Please let us know what your experience was like and if there is anything we can do to make your next visit more enjoyable.

Thank you for your support!
