$30 for 2 containers of rice and a little chicken and lamb. A lot of attitude when I asked why . My female friends feel very uncomfortable in there. I am very involved in community and know many in Mosque, but this restaurant dies not give me a goos via.

I love this Halal Somali restaurant. I ate Rice Lamb with Bone and taste very good and recommend to try. This Rice Lamb with Bone was serve in big pan with bake veggie and salad. This is worth it to try. The best lamb with bone (shank) I ever ate. I love to go back but is far from Pittsburgh

Every year we eat at the Ashur Restaurant when we travel to Roxbury for a track and field competition at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center, which is just a block away. Eating at the Ashur is always a highlight of the trip. The Somalis who run it are always so nice and gracious and very interesting to talk... More
