Pamir Kabob House To Bring Authentic Afghan Cuisine To San Diego's La Jolla

September 24, 2021

After shuttering its North County restaurant earlier this year, Pamir Kabob House will bring authentic Afghan cuisine to the heart of San Diego's La Jolla Village. 

Afghanistan-born Chef Noor Amiri was a translator for the Vatican of Pope John Paul before moving to the United States more than three decades ago. He first opened Pamir Kabob House in Poway in 2005 before selling the restaurant to relocate to Temecula. In 2016, the restaurant moved back to San Diego in Rancho Bernardo until it shuttered this past June. Pamir Kabob House is relocating once again, this time taking over the La Jolla Village space that previously housed Qala Peruvian Seafood and Chedi Thai Bistro before that.

Named after Afghanistan's Pamir Mountains, Pamir Kabob House is expected to open in La Jolla as early as this October, offering a menu of traditional Afghan dishes like marinated meat kabobs, stews, curries, soups, salads, and regional side dishes. The restaurant will also offer beer and wine. 

Pamir Kabob House will sit at 737 Pearl Street, Suite #110, in La Jolla Village. For more information, visit
