My family and I really love Middle Eastern food and having lived in California prior to moving to South Dakota we had the opportunity to try several different variations of it but did not have an Afghan place so discovering one in Sioux Falls was...a very pleasant surprise. Now for the food. There are many items that share the names with Indian dishes that many may be familiar with but the preparation is different as far as the spices and seasonings used. The kabobs are all really good and they serve most things with this great sauce that they call chutney but that I would describe more like a salsa verde. Whatever you call it though, I call it super tasty and will come close to going through a whole bottle of it! The Biryani is another dish we like as is the Butter chicken. It's just really tasty food and something a bit out of the norm and I highly recommend it.More

It is some of the best food I have had anywhere around the midwest. I would go there every day if I lived closer.

We love Middle Eastern and Asian food, so decided to go a few blocks out of our way to try Khoresan’s Kebob House, and we were ever so glad we did. This is a small storefront restaurant with big flavors. We started with spiced chai...and Turkish coffee, both of which delivered big on flavor. For the main course I had the eggplant simmered in a thick tomato sauce redolent with spices. It came with grilled warm, homemade flatbread and thick yoghurt. Wow! My friend loved the lamb kebobs and especially the cilantro chutney that she ordered alongside. Another friend tried the butter chicken but thought it not as good as that dish served at Shahi Palace, unsurprising because Afghan food is the house specialty. Portions were generous and I regret that we didn’t have room for dessert because I’d love to try their gulab jamun.More

I recently ate here with three others who had some experience in food of this type (one is Nepalese, another Bulgarian). We entered but were not sure if we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated. A bit awkward at first, but the hostess...finished with a customer and then seated us. The decor was what one would expect in that region: plaster walls, carpets displayed, small tables. We started with drinks: tea, coffee, and a lassi. A bit elaborate, the Turkish coffee had a menu image, and my Nepalese friend explained how to pour it. The coffee was brought out exactly as shown in the image. The tea was average to what the Nepalese drank daily while at home. Water refills were delayed, but there was only one server at that time. We survived. We ordered butter chicken and kabobs. The cooks spiced the butter chicken the way each of my friends wanted it: one mild, another spicy. The spicy butter chicken was excellent: a delayed burn that allowed you to taste the dish first before the heat. The kabob meat was how my Nepalese friend remembered it from home: A bit dry on the outside but moist on the inside. The chutney was very popular among us and unlike anything we've had around Sioux Falls. We had baklava for dessert; one of us was hesitant at first because her last baklava from elsewhere was dry. This baklava was not dry--it had a great flavor and texture. In summary, I had a great time. Entering and being unsure whether to wait or choose a table was awkward because it was my first time--I'm over it. The employees were friendly and respectful. The pricing and food quantity was average. The food quality, uniqueness, and taste weigh the most on my overall rating; the carpets add a neat touch as well. Come once for the experience, come again for more kabob!More

The owner is a very pleasant and warm Afghani lady and I want to give a nice review. However, it would not be fair. There are ample items on the menu for normal people. Most are oriented towards Indian cuisine. However, the samosas and the...veg biryani that I ordered were very much under flavored. The biryani tasted more like Chinese fried rice. The samosas were as bland as they serve in Indian restaurants in this country. And even though the menu says the naan is baked fresh in the tandoor, I do not think they have a tandoor. It felt like super market quality naan that had been warmed up. But it seems like a popular place because there was a lot of traffic and the owner seemed very hassled. She had no other help outside the kitchen.More

My wife and I are here before seeing James Taylor at the Sanford Center. The space is not impressive but does include some Afghani rugs and other decorations. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We got two filling meals, a Turkish coffee and a...piece of baklava for under $30. I would definitely eat here again.More

Stopped on a Wednesday for noon lunch, after reading the trip advisor reviews. Website for the restaurant proclaims "Noon Buffet 11:00 to 2:00" Stopped at 1120, THE PLACE WAS NOT EVEN OPEN! An employee was sitting in his car out front and promised us that...they were on their way and would open shortly. Seriously, who would trust the food at a place that would serve it to you within a half hour of opening? You KNOW it would be "leftovers" from the previous evening, definitely not prepared fresh. Not to mention, what happened to the Buffet? We will never be back, what a joke!More

We visited here with family. They have substandard menu and high prices! Their breads are store bought. Go to frozen section of any Indian store and you will find that. This is clear deceitful. Their service is horrible as server stopped by only once and...we were waiting for long time to order more and finally decided not to order - this non professional and loss of business. Their food taste was good so overall they get two stars instead of 1. If I had to go for food, I will do take out.More

The lunch buffet had a reasonably good selection of food, all of which was very good. I had never had Afghan food; it's similar in some ways to Indian food, though none of what I had was very spicy. Service was OK.

Not to my knowledge, but I suppose if Arian ever got a supply of goat, he might put it on the buffet. I will mention it to him as a possible special. Maybe for Eid?

Lauri is correct, there is no alcohol. For beverages you have a choice of free tea or coffee, pomegranate juice, mango juice, Turkish coffee, mango lassi, and a half-dozen Pepsi products.
