A favorite!

I always take visitors here since Afghani food is one of the special treats that Fremont has. Service is always efficient and the food is delicious. I love the mandu appetizers which are kind of like ravioli, bolani is delicious and we love the kabobs and big lamb shanks. Last time here I came... read more

One of our favorite local haunts. The resturant is fairly small and to the best of my knowledge does not take reservations. Don't be surprised if there is a wait. We have never had a bad dish, the lamb is always wonderful. Parking can be challening.

We tried majority of the dishes and all tasted to my expectation. My daughter especially likes their Egg-plant appetizer (Bodinjon) . It is definity worth... More

Menu seems to be Just right and well sort out, They had few options for Vegetarians too. Kabab was exceptional and Basmati rice with the serving was just perfect. Only thing missing was a chilled Beer !! Well can't complain on that !! I really wished the Cups in which they served water would have been cleaner.

(I have noted before that small towns sometimes have average restaurants boosted in TA stature from average to "best for miles" because they are rated Excellent by the relatively few people who go there.) The De Afghanan Restaurant serves a very good meal, but is casual dining at best. There is no liquor license. The front door is a beautiful... More

The lamb kabobs are the best I've ever had. Only reason for 4 out of 5 is it's a bit pricey for lunch. That being said, I go there each time I get to the bay area

We wanted something quick and easy so we did a drive and jump to De Afghanan. Did a combo kabob and the bolani. The beef kabob was really excellent. I also thought the chicken kabob was excellent but someone else thought it was a bit dry. The bolani, sort of a potato pita bread, was good but probably wouldn't order... More

They specialize in Kabobs so you have to try their Tikka (Beef) Chabli (Ground beef patty) Bolani (break stuffed with your choice of potatoes or spinach)
