Great Food, Nice Atmosphere

This was one of our first experiences in an Afghan restaurant. The food is similar to Mediterranean-style with such menu items as hummus, falafel, kabobs and mediterranean salads. Since there were 4 in our party, they decided to give us family-style meals. Among the dishes we tried, all of which... read more

We visited Silk Road last weekend (May 16th.) This precious restaurant is tucked away in a beautiful surrounding between other restaurants of varying Ethnic cuisines and some retail stores. As soon as you enter, you are warmly greeted by the host/hostess and promptly seated in a very comfortable dining area. We ordered mostly vegetarian dishes. I have to admit, the... More

For less than $15 you get soup, salad, bread, rice and a kabob. The food was great especially the shrimp. I'm not an adventurous eater when it comes to ethnic food but I loved everything I ate there. Definitely going back soon!

Authentic Afghan cuisine served in large portions and reasonable prices. The owner greeted us and made sure we had a great meal. Our friends brought their own bottle of wine to match the meals of their choice. The Shrimp kabab was excellent, not over done. My wife especially enjoyed the Chapli kabab that was a combination of ground beef and... More

This is a family run restaurant. The food is authentic. Love the pictures running on the monitors in the background.

Great food, great service, a little pricey or I would give it a 5 star. The cadu appetizer is wonderful, as is the Sabzy entree.

This is the first time I tried Afghani food, and it was very fast. I had #2 and #6 on the menu. The filet was cooked well and tasty. The bread is amazing. I'm not big on cilantro or vegetables, but the salad they served was good (great flavoring). I would come here again.
