Walked into a small but pleasant restaurant. It pays to book in advance, especially on the weekend. As I struggle to eat spicy food I was concerned at first but my chicken korma cooked with cashews and coconut milk was well presented with rice. I thoroughly enjoyed it complimented with my drink of choice. In a group of eight we... More

Well, the food is adorable. Not enough shishas, which you have to book before coming. Is that hard to buy more of them? Very good waitresses, who didn't charge us for drinks because we didn't get our shisha. So good overall, but shisha is not always available.

This was a great introduction to Afghan food. I highly recommend the mezze or shared plate to get a good overall taste

We were about to go to the very popular DOC across the road but decided something a bit different. So glad that we ventured out of our comfort zone. The food was outstanding the beef was very succulent and just perfect. Lucky we came early as by the time we left it was almost full of people. DOC can wait... More

Been here quite a few times & nice food every time. The menu has varied over the years & now lacks the nice Beef Chalow that it used to have. For someone that can't eat lamb (which is the main meat on the menu now), the beef was a nice alternative that is now missing. $8 per bottle corkage is... More

It was busy on the night of our visit creating a good atmosphere. We had both starters and main courses and were bursting at the end of it. Very enjoyable with decent service.

This restaurant was recommended by friends but we only had time for a take away. What a disappointment! Naan bread was like it had come from a supermarket freezer. The national dish of rice was ok but we made the mistake of adding meat. Don't know what sort it was but it was dry and chewy. Mushroom dish we had... More

Cosy atmosphere although a bit tight space. Decoration poor and inadequate compared to Indian restaurants. Service correct but no Afghan staff. BYO permitted. Simple food but well prepared and presented, swiftly served. Price well balanced.

Visited the restaurant with five friends, granted it was a Saturda night. Our drink order was placed but, we had to ask three times before it was delivered. The food at this establishment is first class, just a pity the front of house staff let the kitchen down so badly. Be prepared to wait along time on a weekend. One... More
