The place is in a food court in the Public Market in Emeryville. They had a special offer of any 3 menu items plus salad, bread, rice and a soda for 10 bucks. The food was delicious. Will definitely return if I am ever in the area

Stumbled upon this relatively new food court with street food restaurants. The chicken tasting offered when walking past the stand was very nice. The subsequent wrap with chicken kabob was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

This small place located in a food hall delivers delicious Afghan food. I had chicken kebab with dahl, eggplant, salad, traditional bread and saffron rice. The serve was generous and tasty.

Stumble on this place looking for another restaurant. The staff stop me, offering a sample and I was hooked. The lamb was moist and tender, (can't stand dried out meat!) Love trying different types of food. Stop by and give them a try. Should be in a better location. Right now, located in a fast food court.

Staff were giving out free samples of the chicken kabobs, which were excellent. In hind sight, we should have gotten the chicken kabobs for lunch. We got the lamb kabobs instead, which was ok, but not as tasty as the chicken kabob. The rice and spinach side were good. The person who dished the rice and sides onto my platter... More
