The food was fantastic! Filling yet not heavy. We had the Mantoo and the Chicken Shammie Kabob. Both dishes were really delicious, flavorful, and fresh. The chicken was cooked just perfectly and the spinach rice is worth every carb. Try to get a side of the yogurt/garlic/mint sauce they put on the Mantoo; I could live on that sauce alone!... More

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

The entrees came and they were very bland.Almost... 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

Excellent food, quiet and relaxed atmsophere and an overall zen food experience - quite refreshing in comparison to the typical hustle and bustle of the West Hartford restaurant scene.

I generally don't take the time to write online reviews. But I cannot imagine how "equity" could write such a review. I visit this resturant several times a year and it is always an A plus experience. We found this restaurant when it was located in a house off Franklin Street. We were devasted when we went one night to... More
