We were on time for a reservation, but were greeted by a huge line going out the door into the street. All of the people in line 'had a reservation', however the hostess was not even taking names for supposed 'reservations'.

Definitely go ! Great Afghani food !! Our waiter was a bit abrupt and difficult to understand, but WHO CARES?? He did his job and the food was EXCELLENT! Many good vegetarian options as well. The aushak was actually different than I've had it at other Afghani restaurants - but even more delish! Definitely going to be my new go-to... More

Located at the end of Burlingame Av, you will find a nice restaurant not as overcrowded as the others nearby. Most people will go for the local pizza or bar with American comfort food but they will miss out on the nice food you can find here. We got the combination kabab (kabab of lamb and chicken), some salads, Bulanee... More

I was here with my fiance in January and we still haven't found any other place where the food could nearly taste like it does in here. I think that says it all!

One of my daughters insisted that we try this restaurant. Since it was our first time, we ordered and sampled different dishes: shrimp kabab, e-gaw (beef), e-murgh (chicken). We were not disappointed. Very tasty. I had not been too fond of lamb in the past, but I tasted a small portion of their challaw, and I found it quite savory.... More

At the end of Burlingame Avenue, across the street from the train station, you will find a charming Afghani restaurant, decorated with carpets and tapestries. The windows slide open to give an outdoor feel on a lovely night. Everyone begins with a simple salad of lettuce a cucumber in a simple yogurt dressing with black pepper. We started with lamb...

I wondered about how an Afghan restaurant would do for customers in the USA bearing in mind recent years but the restaurant was obviously popular and doing good business. I ate there with friends and we chose a mix of dishes to see what Afghani cuisine had to offer. The service was quick and precise. The food was very tasty,... More
