I recommend their grilled shrimp dish. You are seated quickly and the staff is very courteous and attentive. They also have a very nice and relaxed ambiance.

Just plain wonderful food! Outdoor dining and smoking bar in the summer, outside owner. This is one of my husband's favorite places to grab a bite. If you have fussy kids who only eat white boxed foods - leave them at home!!

The food here is very good -- especially the pumpkin puree. I usually get the Mantoo or Ashak. It's a good place for vegetarians, too. I highly recommend the cocktail the Scarlett Johansson, which had cardamom syrup. Yum!

The atmosphere is amazing. Beautiful restaurant. Owners very nice and wonderful to talk with. Bartender Dean excellent. Food was wonderful. Afghan uses a lot of spices but is not spicy. Everyone should try!

Our last two experiences here have been quite positive. We met friends for an outside lunch this summer, and earlier this week for a winter supper in the upper dining room. The rice, veggies and meats (between the four of us we had three variations) were all well prepared. Rice is such an easy dish to muck up, but it was at the core of these meals and cooked to perfection.

In contrast to past years, the quality of service has improved, indeed making it a strong point: unobtrusive but observant. We wanted to sit and talk and no one pressed us to leave. There is a wide selection of beers and a moderately decent selection of wines. In the high rent district at the core of West Hartford this is a reasonably priced venue with good value for money. I would call this more comfort food than gourmet. It is a nice alternative to the widespread Italian, and Mediterranean options in this quarter.

At core, this is a kebab house and one will be happier with the simply prepared dishes which are done right.
