First time trying Afghani food and I’m surprised about the new flavors. The amount of food is good and the service was really nice. It’s a BYOB so you can bring your own beverage and drink it there. The place is decorated with traditional Afghani...More

We walked in a few minutes after 7pm on a Friday night, and were the only diners in the restaurant. The hostess was pleasant, but there was another younger guy (waiter or something?) who spoke on his cell phone via speaker during our meal. Food...More

I ordered a dish called Chef's Ashaak (spelling?) listed, with a description, under 'House Specialties'. I found it one of the most delicious restaurant meals I have had in a long time. Service was a bit slow, even though the place was not crowded.
