A compact corner for a warm hearty food. A lovely cozy place with super pleasant people and even more top of line tasty food. It's not luxury place but even better with a lovely experience. It's better to call upfront and reserve if you are looking to go there during the weekend. If you are looking to try non -... More

This place is definitely really small, about 20 places, but the the meals are worthwhile tasting. I had lamb with a hot coriander pesto, something that in all more years of travelling I've never tasted - great! There are only 3 people working in the bistro, and sometimes they are rushing about serving, but nevertheless always friendly and helpful. Nice... More

I was expecting some of the same flavors that I experienced in Afghanistan but this place just didn't deliver. I know a lot of restaurants "Germanize" their menus because they have to comply with the German palate, but Afghan food isn't too spicy. This place could use some innovation and inspiration to bring it back to its roots.

Looking for something different while in Germany, we decided to try Hindukusch. As other reviews state, the restaurant is small, few tables, and the menu is short as well. They were disappointingly out of the chicken curry, so husband had the lamb kabob, which he absolutely loved. I had an eggplant dish, unfortunately we dont speak German but the waitress... More

Great food in a lovely little restaurant. Food was amazing and even though the menu is not extensive the food served is so tasty and well prepared. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.For drinks try the Schir Jai (Milchtee with Cardamon) and the South African Wine, both delicious. Book in advance as it is small and incredibly popular.

This is a very small, intimate restaurant but always delicious food. You really need a reservation to go here as there are only a few tables. The food is carefully prepared and so good!

Very small restaurant with delicious home cooked flavorful food. The staff is friendly. I am vegetarian and my husband is not. We both absolutely loved our meals. My dinner here was may favorite meal in Germany. We went back a second time but unfortunately it was closed.

Great staff and great food when you’re looking for something different. The lamb is always excellent but the Mantu is my favorite. The Fish soup also comes highly recommended. The place is small but intimate and is an excellent place to spend the evening. Highly recommended but space is limited.

Not very attractive from the outside, a small restaurant with just a few tables. It was packed on a weekday. A limited selection of dishes, more than half are vegetarian. The lentil soup is a dish on its own, spicy and thick. The chicken curry is the best I ever had, wonderful flavours and spices. Good selection of wines.

Been coming here for 7 years and still loving it. Kader the owner is always a friendly, lighthearted soul and these qualities are to found in his cooking. Not an extensive menu but everything is cooked with a light spicy flavor, from the soups to the lamb, chicken and vegetarian dishes. Best to book!
