Great food, nice atmosphere, extensive menu and wine list, and good service. I had salmon kebabs, which were out of this world. Oh, and huge portions; I brought half of it home.

Enjoyed a great lunch. We shared the lamb kebabs which were cooked perfectly (Medium Rare) and more than enough for 2 people. Also shared the pumpkin kadu which was best ever. A nice introduction to Afghan cuisine.

I am not sure if it is the cuisine or the chef doing an excellent job, I summarised the excellence of this meal is a result of the cuisine itself (the simplicity and comfort level) and the superb execution by the chef. Love it at first try from a foodie's point of view. Every dish I tried was done very... More

This was an outstanding experience. I was tentative about going sinceI thought it would be similar to Indian food, but to my surprise, it was one of the most delicious meals (not like Indian food at all) that I have ever had, The lamb chops were superb and the pumpkin side dish could have been a dessert,

Had a late dinner on Friday. Very good Kabobs, rice, and side dish of cauliflower. Bread was fresh and warm. The dessert Baklava was outstanding. We have been coming here since 2001 and it continues to be outstanding. They pay attention to detail. Very friendly professional service. Good value, great tasting and fun night out. Our Kabobs were cooked as... More

Dependably excellent! Their shish kabob is the best I've ever had, be it chicken, lamb or beef. The Afghan veggies(try the pumpkin!), dumplings and dessert are all interesting and delicious. I loved everything I've tried here PLUS the prices are very fair. Highly recommended!!
