This is not authentic Afghani place so do not go by name. It is ok if you want to eat some rice with kebabs but this is not afghani. Just by painting a black and white lines on horse does not make it zebra. Portions...More

We enjoyed out meal and the service at Afghan Kebab House. We did not have appetizers only because we weren’t that hungry. I had the Palan Sabei and it was very good, my partner had the Combo Kebab and he enjoyed it. Both came with...More
