Friendly Staff, Great Food!

My family and I went out to seek afghan food and that is what we found. My husband, after being deployed 4 times, has grown a fond love for good afghan food. We really enjoyed it here. We got the buffet that included all the main staples, so if you're not familiar with the food it's a great way... read more

If I could give this place a zero I would. I just had lunch there and I went with my co-worker and we decided to share the kabob. Well don't ever do this folks, because the lady owner will roll her eyes and shake her head. She got so upset that I asked the gentlemen (much nicer) if that was... More

We've been coming hear since soon after it opened, several years now. Come in a lot for lunch and have ALWAYS enjoyed the food... enjoy it too much in fact and end up leaving uncomfortably stuffed! It's very hard to control one's self in Al-Zaytoun as you want to try it all and go back for more! The food is... More

The food and service here is simply amazing. Everyone is friendly and the location is cozy. You can forget about cheap tricks and flare here, it is like visiting mom's house, and like always, the food and conversation is amazing! Azra is amazing!!!

I loved this place and had a great conversation with the owner. The kebabs were great...some of the best. The bread is freshly made in a tandor oven. The mango lassi was incredible, too!

A hole in the wall gem!! Don't look like much on the outside but worth checking out! I have been to this restaurant about 4 times now and the food is ever disappointing. I usually get the same items which would be the combo with lamb,ground beef,and chicken kabobs.These come with basmati rice,salad and a side which i get the... More

This is a small eatery in a little strip mall by the public storage place. I missed it at first and had to return. Pull into the public storage and you will see it. Easy parking. This is a family place and extremely friendly. When I arrived, food for previous orders had just finished cooking and the owners were very... More

I've tried many other places around Woodbridge and all have failed me. Al zaytouns is delicious! Everything is fresh. I ordered the lamb kabobs with rice and chick peas. First the owner asked for the temp of my meat which I've never been asked at any kabob place. I watched his wife make the bread fresh which was really nice.... More

I have never written a restaurant review before this. This restaurant may not look super appealing on the outside but more than makes up for it with their food and hospitality. My husband and I had the generous portioned chicken kabobs which were cooked to perfection served with salad, rice, bread and vegetable. The owners were gracious and gave me... More
