“Afghan Food is Marvelous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Please try this restaurant. The food is amazing. Large portions of tasty Afghan dishes, soft Afghan music and friendly staff await you. We recommend the Curry Chicken and the Nan, delicious and very reasonably priced.

“First class fare and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were just looking for a quick bite - this restaurant stood out on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We opted for the aubergine/eggplant following recent recommendations and had a selection of other appetizers followed by a Kabob combo to share. I thoroughly recommend the Chai (green tea with cardamon). The food was delicious and staff attentive - if we were around longer we would definitely return.

“Good first experience with Afghan cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

The eggplant appetizer was amazing! The food in general was pretty spicy, but I would call it more of a warming spice rather than being totally overwhelming or unpleasant. The yogurt and mint drink balanced the spice nicely. I was not a huge fan of the aushak- I thought the filling was a little bland considering how flavorful everything else was- but the critiques end there. The baklava was among the best we've had at a middle eastern/ Mediterranean restaurant (in this country at least!) and the firnee (rose-flavored custard) was addictive. And again, the eggplant!

What a great introduction to Afghan food- hope to return next time we're in Charlottesville!

“Fresh and Savory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The food was excellent! Everything was fresh, tasted homemade and was well presented. We tried the Monto for an appetizer and it was amazing. Homemade dumplings with a delicious garlic sauce. The chicken kebab was excellent but what was outstanding as well was the butternut squash as the side dish. Highly recommend it. The price was great as well. We stumbled upon this place, so glad we did! Wish this place was closer to home!
