It's the Wandering Yank here. Friends who are long-time residents of El Dorado Hills suggested we meet them here, as they had enjoyed it before. A good idea it turned out! Between us, we had leg of lamb shish kebab, Ashak, vegetarian platter, pumpkin puree, eggplant, spinach rice, and baklava, as well as a few glasses from the surprisingly interesting... More

I have been here many times and enjoy every visit. The food is fresh and delicious. I love the different flavors. The eggplant that comes with dishes is my favorite. I haven't tried the pumpkin because it's spicy, but my friends like it. The service is wonderful--attentive, but they do not rush you through your meal. Highly recommend.

This was my 4th or 5th time eating here. The food is delicious. I have not found a bad item on the menu. The lamb is delicious. I also really like the pumpkin purée. Service is attentive. This is a good place for a great meal. The carpets on the walls are absolutely beautiful. It is a gallery of Persian... More

One of a few really good places to eat in El Dorado Hills. My daughter and I always order the same thing, the beef shammi kabobs with brown rice, spinach and pumpkin puree. You also get some yummy warm flatbread with dip. It's well priced during lunch and a little higher for dinner, but the quality of food is well... More

The Afghan food was very good, but you do have to have a bit of an acquired taste. It is a bit hard to find, so try and go with regular visitors. Large quantities so there will be take home for the next day. Lamb is great, and the rice dishes are very interesting.

There was four of us for dinner, my brother and his wife, my wife and myself. Moses, the owner, again out did himself on the food for the four of us. We decide to eat on the patio this time, very nice and clean. Our dinners were nicely prepared along with our appetizer which was shared by all four. We... More

My wife and I probably eat here at least once a month. Beef Shammi Kebeb with spinach rice and pumpkin puree. So delicious! The pumpkin puree is practically a dessert to tastes so good. My wife enjoys the eggplant instead of the pumpkin puree. The have an online ordering option but I think it's better just to call and place... More

I reviewed this restaurant 5 years ago and my feelings remain the same. Great food and nice people! The quality is always good. Go for lunch and try the buffet of items if you are unsure of Afghani food, and the cost will be less than half the price of dinner. But we had dinner tonight and the bill was... More

This has become my favorite sushi place in EDH, though Sky is also good. They have a nice array of choices for non-sushi lovers, and delicious saki and other cocktails.

I've been here a few times for dinner. I love the interiors and the service. Food is delicious too. Too bad they are closed on Sundays or else I would have chosen this place for Mother's Day dinner.
