Very special good food and homely ambiance. Certainly Afghan restaurants are rare in the Netherlands and therefore highly recommended to try it out.

CHECK YOUR BILL AND RECEIPT BEFORE YOU LEAVE! I visited the restaurant with my Aunt; whilst the food was average, the service was not. When we were leaving we asked for the bill which totalled 79.50€. My 80 year old Aunt offered to pay and...was asked to visit the main desk where the card machine was located. On return to our table she checked her card receipt which showed 97.50€. She went back to the main desk and queried the overcharging. There was no surprise, embarrassment or apology and my Aunt was returned 20€. Their reaction and total lack of surprise convinces me this was an intentional overcharge. I find it despicable that they should treat any customer that way especially an 80 year old later. BEWARE!More

We ate here in our 12,5 year anniversary,we had a brilliant experience. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, taking the time to sit down at adjacent empty table to talk through the menu and later to describe the dishes. We'd highly recommend the 3...course surprise menu which let's you taste a large portion of the dishes on offer. And cap it off with lovely homemade fig whiskey or fig liquor.More

It was with much trepidation that I went to one of the best restaurants in Den Bosch; but I am really happy I did. Afghan food used to rank very low on my gastronomic index but that changed. Nice little quaint restaurant trying to give...the Afghan feeling (I guess) and only two front room staff - recipe for disaster in my eyes. But again wrong. The decor is up to private taste (still not convinced) but the two staff were really good. Took their time to explain the dishes and get new drinks. Very efficient and experienced. We got around 8 dishes and only one of them was questionable (friend battered potato slice as starter) the rest was a wonderful symphony of far away spices. The two different meat balls were great but the chicken!!! It was tender, moist and so tasteful - a real delight. Well done to all involved and we will be back.More

The restaurant and the service was very good. We took the introductory menu and the chef personally comes and describes the food. The waiters are very kind and sweet. The food makes me wanna visit Afghanistan. They presented the afghan culture in their food with...so much love and happiness. Definitely recommend Sarban restaurant either in denbosh or Tilburg. Thank you Sarban Team for your excellent service and lots of love to Afghan culture.More

First time here, really tasty food. We had the surprise menu and everything was really good. The service was also kind. Overall we thought that the price was a little bit high for what we had, but besides of that we would definitely come back.

It is worthwhile trying out this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The menu is very extensive. We tried several dishes and all tasted very good, different from what you are accustomed to. The prices are very reasonable.
