Consistently Good Food, Full of Rich Flavor

This is a go-to spot for my wife and her colleagues when they are celebrating a new staff member or a retirement, and the food is always great. Big dining room, with a slightly noisy bar in the front, but usually it is not a factor. The dish is there always really flavorful and well-prepared and I... read more

We went for lunch. Very nice place, beautiful decor and friendly staff. I really liked that our waitress took the time to tell us about each dish. The food presentation was very nice, taste is different for sure not exactly to my liking but I was willing to try. The lamb kebab was a bit chewy. Eggplant dish was delicious... More

Great, unique food. Ordered the lamb kebab with brown rice & eggplant and it was delicious! Out of all the great options in West Hartford, this is one of the best!

Dining at Shish Kebab is like taking a trip half way around the world without leaving your own home town. The atmosphere is tasteful, quiet and when you walk up the stairs to the dining room, it is as though you are far away. The food—in our case the vegetarian options—has always been delicious, and we have been there several... More

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.
