We asked our son to pick out a place for a celebration dinner after his graduation ceremony, and this is was his choice. The price is reasonable, the staff is helpful and the food is wonderful.

I love the food. Anything I had there is wonderful, specially kabobs. Appetizers are great and their eggplant is amazing.

Came here for my birthday dinner - first time - on a cold Bloomington night. Nice warm restaurant, very friendly staff and owner who welcomed us. I had the Cornish Hen combination, the hen was a little dry, but all else was very good - yummy spinach and rice! My friends had been here before and had the chicken and... More

Great food, authentic food and lovely service. This tasted just like the Middle East. They give a lovely complementary eggplant starter dish which is also excellent. Must visit when in Bloomington

The food, atmosphere, and service were all top notch! The menu is Afghan and offers items that are very unique. We had the lamb kebaabs as recommended by our server. It was the best lamb I have ever eaten! Our appetizer was called Namounaa and included baked butternut squash and turnip, seasoned spinach, and spiced eggplant. I tried to find... More

My daughter made the reservation for Fathers weekend. She had heard it was good. The food was outstanding. There were 10 at our table and everyone raved about all the entrees. But the spinach side, and I don't usually eat spinach Was out of this world. I tried but could not get the secret. The only reason I didn't give... More

It's our first time trying Afghan food. Tried this place based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. The dishes were so tasty, with good balance of savory spices. They have complimentary appetizer - eggplant with pickled carrot. The meats were perfectly cooked, juicy & tender. Salad was fresh. Soup was well delectable. Bread was awesome. Service was impeccable. What a nice... More
