We tried the dinner buffet with our 2 year old son, he loved it! Fresh hummus, excellent beef and chicken kabobs, delicious vegetable dishes. Friendly staff, I highly recommend it.

Visited twice. Fairly extensive buffet with a focus on a variety of vegetable dishes and several chicken options as well. Weekend buffet included chicken and ground beef kabobs. Very friendly staff.

I asked an Afghan friend where he would go for authentic Afghan cuisine, and he pointed me here. Not having been to Afghanistan, I'll take his word for it that it's authentic, but the food was amazing - a variety of spices, each one well balanced and identifiable; each dish clearly different from the other. My uneducated palate places this... More

The awesome thing about this restaurant is that they have a very big and nice party room. The regular restaurant is ok, a decent buffet. I recommend the place for parties.

This place is overated by too many people and I do not get it. Outside of maybe 2 meat items that were good, the other 18 items were tasteless. The help watches TV when business is slow and I am astounded at the great reviews given to this restaurant. What a let down. If I cannot trust the reviews, not... More

We've been here both at lunch and dinner. The buffet is fresh and everything yummy. Although I can't vouch for the authenticity of the cuisine, the flavors of each dish were unique. My favorites sabzee, lamb kabob, and adored the rice pudding. Our server was always on top of unobtrusively clearing our plates and refilling our drinks. This was a... More

Bread so soft and yet crispy, tasted variety of vegetarian buffet food and all good flavor and not too spicy.Pigeon peas curry was awesome. Ambiance was good and the hall was not noisy either even though the restaurant was pretty much fully occupied.

Had the lunch buffet with a group of 8 from work. We all were impressed with the choice, quality and flavor of the food as well as being a very comfortable place to eat. I especially liked that food was "right sized", meaning that pieces were just right to try something and see how it tastes without wasting any. I... More

You can't beat the price for what you get. Highlights off the buffet for me were the okra, the eggplant and the chicken in tomato sauce. The salad bar was an interesting addition that could probably be minimized without any loss to the dining experience. I am not sure who its set up for. It has what looks like bagged... More
