“Tremendous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2009

We ate here twice in July 2009, over a three week holiday in Bethesda. The food was exciting, very flavoursome, and we enjoyed the modest style of the restaurant. Everything we ate was delicious and fresh. The wine list was simple, but with food like this, who cares.

“Excellent Afghan Food at Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2009

Faryab has been around for a long time. Yet over this time its food standards have remained high and its prices reasonable. This was again confirmed to us by another meal there this past week. We highly recommend it for first-rate Afghan food. And it sure beats what they served in Kabul when I used to visit there way back when the place was still civilized. .
