“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

I went here on a limb with some friends, recommended by another friend whom we'd run into. From the outside, it looks like a small place but it opens up in the back and the food is so great! I had the beef kabob plate - everything was great. It came with seasoned rice and vegetables which were outstanding. Desserts were also very good! Great Afghan cuisine!

“Satisfying meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Had a great meal at this family run place. We ordered lamb kebabs which were delicious. The accompanying basmati rice was wonderful, every extra long grain separate. Also enjoyed their lentil soup, tasty wheat bread and the grilled veggies that had been grilled with the lamb. I appreciated that the portion size was not huge, just right. The service is quiet and efficient. Love this palce and would go there again anytime I am in the area. Watch the red sauce - it is super spicy but delicious!!

This place is so cute. A small family run Afghan byo with HUGE charm. Plus, the prices are very affordable. Bring a bottle or two of wine and some sharing friends to get a taste of the menu.
