“great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

flavorful well cooked food. Choice of spice level. Typical Indian sub-continent fare. Good value. No liquor license if that is important to you. Not much atmosphere but the staff is friendly (family) and sociable. I'd certainly return.

“I love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

I need to go here more often. My absolute favorite dish here is the one with eggplant and I order the rice to go with it. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful! I think this would be a great place to make a reservation with a bunch of friends. It feels exotic and at the same time the owner and his son are so welcoming!

“Ok food, would have liked more spice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

We ordered two different lamb dishes and they were both decent albeit a bit bland. Would have been great with more flavor and spice. The restaurant does not serve wine or beer, which is a shame and probably limits clientele. Location isn't charming but interior is nice and the place is clean. Friendly waiter.

“Adventurous but not too adventurous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

This is to my knowledge the first Afghan restaurant in Renton, and I'd have to think one of a small number in the Seattle area. If you're looking for something different but not too different, Afghan food is a good choice. It has similarities to both Middle Eastern food and Indian food. But most everyone will find something that they like here. Especially good were the stewed lamb and also lamb kebabs. They have an Afghan chai tea, and Afghan dumplings whose name I forget. Anyway it was all good, the service was very good, and how often do you get a chance to eat Afghan food?

“Tasty food, friendly owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

This was our first visit to an Afghan restaurant. The menu was more reminiscent of an Indian restaurant than we expected. We were not disappointed, however, as the food was delicious. The owner was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very clean. They do have vegetarian options but limited choices for a vegan diet.
