I never would have thought to order wings at Afghan Kabob but my friend ordered the Zary Pary wings as an appetizer and they were ridiculously amazing! I also highly recommend the lamb chop entree as well. As far as sides go, my favorite is the cauliflower followed by the eggplant and curry chicken. I also enjoy the Indian music... More

I think the management changed and with it the taste and quality. The food is reasonable, except it is expensive for what you get. The meat platter gives you three options, but it does not have the taste in the Bone-In chicken or the Lamb. The lamb was a bit chewy. The spinach side is flavorless, so it the chick... More

Not fancy but good food at reasonable price. Walk up and order your food then they call you when ready. Reasonable prices, friendly local Afghan kebab restaurant. Recommended

Visited with several colleagues. The service was good and food was excellent. We ordered Shami kabab, Kabab platter and Lamb Chops. The quantity of food was very good. The sides were excellent. Each platter comes with two sides. The kabobs were juicy and not very spicy. The Lamb Chops were very generous portion, 3 per plate. The price was reasonable.

Delicious kabobs a plenty at this place. Excellent selection of sides to go with your meat. We made regular stops here when living in the neighborhood and Are always tempted to go back. We always got takeout, as the dining room isn't anything great, but it's worth it to go in and pick out your meal yourself from the glass... More

We took a chance and tried late night take out from this place. The food arrived piping hot and delicious...we liked it so much we ordered it again a few days later! The chicken was perfectly seasoned and succulent...the side dishes were generous and mouth watering....the chick peas tasted like Thanksgiving with cinnamon and spices. I can't wait to order...

Where to take 2 teenagers with different tastes? Here was just fine and something new for them. Food was straightforward and good. Staff really helpful and genuinely nice folk. Good value. Not rushed. Recommend it, and so do the teenagers!

I ordered from this restaurant for delivery. Food came in a timely manner but it was completely cold. Greasy - cold - If I had been in the restaurant I would have sent the entire meal back. If was so bad I just threw it out and did without dinner.

Has a large variety of Afghani and South Asian food. Staff is all smiles and helpful. Seems to be quite popular among the locals. The platter makes a good meal.
