Lamb kabobs were perfectly cooked consisting of six large pieces of succulent medium rare lamb served with wonderfully seasoned long grain rice.

Afghan food is very much like Persian food. Rice and Kebabs. For me my Persian food experiences were better. We came here, R & I, a while ago when the street was still being renovated. The place was quite empty back then, but now when I pass by at lunch hours is usually more full. The food was good. Good... More

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...
