Went here on a date and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. The food was different but delicious. We shared different small plates and it was a fun evening. Service was good.

My wife and I always enjoy dining at this family-owned and operated restaurant in West Hartford Center. There are a number of great restaurants to choose from here, but the cuisine here may be the most unique! From the expertly prepared kebabs -- we've had the chicken, salmon, and beef -- to the marvelous sides, we never leave hungry! Of... More

If you visit or live in the West Hartford, CT area I highly recommend this restaurant. The authentic middle eastern / afghan food was out of this world. Great selection of drinks and appetizers. The food portions are perfect and the food prepared is great. The atmosphere is Wonderful. They also have a sister area which is a hookah lounge.... More

The restaurant is beautiful, the service is excellent, and the food is incredibly delicious. There are plenty of choices for vegetarians (and even more if you eat fish). Ashak is great, salmon kebabs are superb: fresh, delicately seasoned and tasty. The trout is one of my favorites as well. The entrees all come with either brown rice or spinach rice... More

I recommend their grilled shrimp dish. You are seated quickly and the staff is very courteous and attentive. They also have a very nice and relaxed ambiance.
