Our favorites were the Beef Kabobs and Butter Chicken. The naan was served straight from the oven to our table. The rice pudding... read more

I have been going to Cherry blossom restaurant for almost 4years. We even had our wedding reception there on 2012. It was unforgettable. The catering manager was very accommodating. He gave us a good deal. The food was soo good. We had a nice buffet. They laid down all the items we requested. Our guests loved it so much. We... More

So we tried the dinner buffet, and there was a good variety of dishes (2 types of meat, 1 fish, 3 types of chicken, 4-6 vegetarian options, salad "bar", soup, fruits and a pudding). They also serve really good hot fresh naan with the meal, soft drinks, tea and coffee. The meal is about $15 a person which is a... More

A very clean space with a decent buffet selection. The kababs (both beef and chicken) were extremely tender and very well grilled. The other items included 2 kinds of rice, chick peas, eggplant with yogurt, spinach, fried shami kababs, etc. A good salad bar and the only thing that would need work is the dessert section. This wasn't one of... More

I have visited this place many times for one reason, and one reason only. It's a new building with a new kitchen which is much more than you can say about other Afghan restaurants. However, I have to say that the food is NOT as good as I was expecting it to be. But perhaps I am biased since I've... More

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.
