“okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The place is hidden. It was very busy on a tuesday night. We had the lamb dish, dumplings and the rice. Lamb was a little bland for me. I prefer the lamb kebabs from other afghan places in Adelaide. Dumplings were quite sour with the yoghurt. It was a weird taste for me. Rice, I liked. Might go and try again, but not in a hurry.

“Again and again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Had heard of this restaurant a million times with nothing but amazing reviews from friends and as a local was excited to try. Having searched for it for months, finally found the blue door and have continued to return. Service is always friendly, food is amazing and staff always seem amazed by how much we dare to fit in and the atmosphere from the simple but beautiful styling makes dinner so much nicer. But remember to book, a walk in wont get a table but if your lucky and you call around 6, sometimes a couple can slip in for a quick dinner around 8 after an early table has left.

A very good neighbourhood family restaurant with a selection of delicious meals - the slow cooked eggplant is exceptional.

“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Simply amazing. Small hidden jewel with amazing food and service. Best to go with at least 6 ppl so you can order several dishes and share. BYOB so you can bring your own wine for a small corkage fee. Need reservation, always full. Best dish by far the egg plant, don't miss out!
Prices very reasonable to Adelaide, for 6 ppl with some non alcoholic drinks and 3 corked outlets of wine it was $30/ person.

Enjoy
