I have eaten at De Afghanan several times and I have never had a bad meal here. The food is very exotic in taste, some spices I have never tried. The meat (be it chicken lamb or beef) is always nice and tender. The service...More

Came back for more Teka Kabob & Qabili Pallow. Food is always AMAZING!!! The spices, the textures, and the portions are a delight to consume and savor. I also enjoy the spicy, tangy hors d'oeuvre (potatoes, chickpeas, onions, and more) though for some it is...More
