Dining at Shish Kebab is like taking a trip half way around the world without leaving your own home town.

I love this place! It's my favorite restuarant so I go as often as I can. I love the pea soup, salmon kabob, and lamb kabob. Great fresh taste and healthy. I love the decor and atmosphere too. The staff always do a great job.

My first time having Afghani food was incredible. First, the service and attention was excellent. Nice atmosphere. The food (recommended by my server) was really, really good. Lamb, rice, potatoes, eggplant and pumpkin. All spiced deliciously. Topped of with an exquisite milk dessert with cardamom, rose water, fruits and pistachios. Will definitely return and I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a birthday party here. 13 adults and 3 kids. We did the family style dining. The food was out of this world!! And there was so much of it!! The dumplings with spinach and scallions were amazing. Service was top notch! Definitely will be back.

We were in West Hartford exploring the downtown area. Across from Starbucks we spied the Shish Kebab House of Afghanistan. It looked from the outside like a small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant. The menu looked good so we went in. The front window area is just the base of the staircase. The restaurant is on the next two levels up and quite... More

We ordered Beef Shammi Kabob and it was the best one I've had in the recent years. Our server, Monic was really helpful and Courteous. I hope she gets appreciated by the management. Overall, if I do visit this place in future, I would definitely visit Shish Kebab House.

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
