We've been here several times and have loved everything we've ordered. Especially love the Kadu Borani. The lamb or vegetarian shola are favorites as well.

I hadn't been to the Kyber Pass in many years. I met a friend today for a late lunch. The restaurant was very quiet and beautifully decorated. We both had excellent chai and then chose the lunch buffet. There were nice choices. I had a...More
