I had this food at a friend's house party. I am considering ordering for a house party as well. The food was authentic and delicious.

Been more than once for the lunch buffet and find the food excellent with a great selection of kabobs, vegetarian dishes and more to please the palate. My wife loves the firnee and enjoys all the desserts along with many styles of chicken served. Hope to come back for dinner in the near future but I can recommend the buffet... More

This banquet Hall was very clean. They offer open bar options for your occasion and allow outside catering as well. The only gripe I had with the space was the bathrooms. It did not have enough stalls for the bathroom, so if the event is packed, you'll have a long time to wait to use the bathroom. The staff was... More

I got a very bad treatment at Cherry Blossom yesterday. I had invited some of my friends for Iftaar but didnot know that for two people also you have to reserve the place. Went there and manager and staff was very rude they couldnot accomodate two people during Ramadan time where spirit of giving is the main thing. Will never... More

Over the last three years I have come here perhaps a dozen times, always for a large party or celebration or Ramadhan Iftar (my sister had her wedding reception here). The food is excellent and superior to the many other Afghan/Persian restaurants close by. The public part of the restaurant (as opposed to the party hall) is a bit shabby... More

A favorite of ours when we feel like eating Afghani middle eastern food. One has a choice of a wide variety of food. Not sure why more people don't frequent it on the weekends. However, during the week, there's a lunch time crowd. We love the chicken kabobs, koobedeh (seasoned ground beef) the lamb, the Qorma Chalau (Tender braised chicken... More

The variety of really great food is the draw for our family! We have come here for years and have seen it improve every year. We are not vegetarians but it is a good choice for those who eat a lot of vegetables. I love the eggplant casserole!!! Sure the salad choice is limited but they have everything in it... More

This place was on my bucket list for several years, and with heightened expectations my wife and I made it happen for a Friday lunch. Unfortunately, I/we were disappointed. Perhaps over-expectations prejudiced me. Yes, we knew it was a buffet presentation of Afghan-type food. Yes, we knew that the price was very affordable. Still, disappointment. Why? While the service was... More

We were looking for an Afghan restaurant in the Sterling area and tried the Cherry Blossom Restaurant. The lunch buffet was $12.99 and offered quite a few selections. Our favorites were the Beef Kabobs and Butter Chicken. The naan was served straight from the oven to our table. The rice pudding was delicious. The server was helpful and polite. My... More

I have been going to Cherry blossom restaurant for almost 4years. We even had our wedding reception there on 2012. It was unforgettable. The catering manager was very accommodating. He gave us a good deal. The food was soo good. We had a nice buffet. They laid down all the items we requested. Our guests loved it so much. We... More
