I've travelled a lot and eaten a lot of Afghani food and this was NOT Afghani. That being said was the food bad. That's an understatement. The half chicken served was a poor tandoori chicken. Stale meat with no flavour which made my daughter almost...More

I've been going to this cafe for at least 15 years, it's in my 'hood, and it is CONSISTENTLY DELICIOUS!! Fresh, never pre-prepared, aromatic, flavorful….the best! A real plus to keep expenses down is that they do not serve alcohol, though when you arrive with...More
