“Interesting and unusual food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

The restaurant moved to 4949 Oakton St, Skokie, Il., about 3 years ago. We went often at its previous location and have been to the new one about 5-6 times. The food has improved since its move, which doesn't usually happen when a restaurant closes and reopens at a new location. The food was especially good the last time we were there, the soup hot, the shrimp excellent and not over-cooked. My husband had the ravioli with a vegetarian sauce so we could share. Quite light and brilliantly done. The other great feature of the restaurant is that it is BYOB.

“So delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

Wonderful kabobs, lamb, mandoo (Afghan ravioli) and many vegetarian selections, all served with dilled rice or a lovely scented rice with sweet carrots and raisans. Don't miss the stewed pumpkin, it's addictive! Comfortable restaurant, friendly staff, easy parking.

“Great Kabobs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2008

This little place in a nearly deserted strip mall has a limited menu but their kabobs are wonderful, especially the combination one. Great rice and the cardamon scented Afghan tea is lovely. Good place to eat in the McCormick Boulevard area.
