Everything is fresh and the Gyro meat is perfectly seasoned. May get busy in the evening so plan accordingly. Super clean inside and the pictures of Afghanistan are fascinating. Worth a drive to get to.

Tasty kabobs! It's a small place. Staff is nice. The food takes time to be prepared but worth the wait.

This place has a solid selection of traditional afghan food. It's a bit of a small place but they are always busy. Dessert selections are limited. A couple of TVs play some soccer and other things. Food is served on styrofoam plates with plastic ware. Drinks are bottles from a cooler. Service is 100% counter service. Food is prepared made... More

We picked up carryout - chicken and lamb kabobs and an order of Boolawnee. Everything was delicious - the meat grilled perfectly, choice of white or brown basmati, chickpeas and the wonderful yogurt sauce. Naan was perfect, could be a meal in itself. We will definitely go there again in the near future. Service was friendly as well.

I ordered a chicken kabob sandwich, as part of one of their lunch specials. The charcoal grilled chicken is flavorful, and the pita was nicely toasted. The prices are in line with expectations from a typical kabob house.

I got carry out for lunch. It was okay, not fantastic and not awful. The chicken was the best part, I would rate it very good. The bread, rice, and chickpeas were just okay. Normally I devour chickpeas when I get kabob, but these tasted greasy. Not so much that they were inedible, just not super tasty. The bread had... More
