OMG is this what Afghan food tastes like?! If so then I am going to be super sad since I've never had it until this weekend :( This place is a hole in the wall. Definitely not meant for large groups. It's got like 3 small tables on the inside and an table on the outside. But do not let... More

Staying around the corner on Van Ness Ave, discovered this fantastic Afghan restaurant on Geary St, only been there 5 months! A small restaurant, but diners coming and going all night. The entrees were amazing (try the pumpkin!) and we shared the lamb & chicken dishes between 4 people-delicious! The dessert menu is a must-try, especially the rose water/cardomom/ pistachio... More

A friend who lives nearby this eatery recommended to us. I decided to take out for a party that I went. Their take-out joint is right next door to a sit-down restaurant by the same name. I ordered the staples -- chapli & lamb kabab, bolani and aushak. Big portion with fresh salad and rice sides. They were well received... More

When on a short business trip, I referred to trip advisor as always to help me find a good place and the people with me were a little nervous when I picked an Afghan restaurant. However, we were all shocked with how good the food was. We had a potato fritters appetizer that was just so good I can't even... More

Our family of 5 dropped in on Sunday night at about 6pm, and had no trouble being seated, although by the time we left an hour or so later, there were folks waiting for tables. The atmosphere is a bit funky, but in a good way and the food was great. We've eaten at afgani restaurants in a variety of... More

This place is tiny, but we always call in our order first and then head over to pick it up. We always take out as this place has a few tables, but I think they have a restaurant next door. Never been to that one, but this place is outstanding. We have ordered food from there and brought it home... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal of lamb kebabs. The restaurant is very charming and authentic and the food was delicious. Very friendly and attentive staff. I would definitely go back if I am ever in the area.

Great food, more enjoyable when you did not have it for a while, recommend take-out because there are only two tables, Gabe only 4 stars because they don't pickup the phone--you have to order onsite!
