We read about this place in a travel guide and were quite satisfied with the lunch menu. Sure, it's not the greatest food you can have in Paris, but it's decently priced, decently located, and was a nice way to have our first Afghan food experience.
It can be a cheap eat but be careful: the lunch special doesn't include drinks, and these are pricier than the rest of the menu, so this is where they'll make their money! We found that 3,50 EU was too much for a small pot of cardamom tea but were okay with it, since we'd never had it before. If you want to keep costs low, ask for the free 'carafe d'eau'.
We enjoyed the savory meals we had and the few but incredibly tender pieces of veal. The entrées and desert were too obviously 'straight from the fridge!', but I guess that's inevitable. The restaurant was full, by the time we started our main course, so that's always a good sign. Would recommend for a nice lunch if you're tired of French food and feel like something different in a warm, 'ethnic' atmosphere, but maybe not for dinner.
