Chef Hayat

Cuisine: Afghani

Hayat moved to Utah in June of 2011 from Afghanistan. An absence of Afghani restaurants in Salt Lake City drove him to pursue his own food business.

When asked why he started Hayat’s Grill, he responded “to share my culture with others in hopes of erasing hatred that has taken place in so many hearts and bridging gaps over a cup of tea.”

Hayat believes that Afghani cuisine is one of the best in the world and is excited to introduce it to Salt Lake City. He recommends trying bolani, kabobs, palaw, and borani. Currently he is growing his business through catering and market events and hopes to own a small restaurant in the future.
