Afghan food in Burlingame Ca

When my girlfriend invited me to go here for dinner I wasn't sure what to expect since I never had Afghan food. I ordered the chicken kebab served with brown rice and nan bread-the bread was fluffy and lighter than Indian nan bread: the rice pilaf was very good too--better than any brown rice pilaf... read more

I eat a mainly plant based diet and this was a fantastic choice. The vegetarian sampler was a perfect dish for me. This was a random choice for lunch with some friends and everyone was more than happy with the food, atmosphere and decor. Give it a try!

Right from the start I was very attracted to this cuisine. Entering the place it was very light and chirpy. The greetings were wonderful and the workers are very careful and gentle. Sitting down I looked around. Beautiful decorations that make you really feel this culture and land. I am a vegetarian and they had a few wonderful vegetarian dishes.... More

If you like or always wants to try Afghani food, then add this to your bucket list. Lamb kabobs were perfectly cooked consisting of six large pieces of succulent medium rare lamb served with wonderfully seasoned long grain rice. Atmosphere is nice and service is akin to five star dining. Located in a great little suburban downtown town, so plan... More

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
