This is one our regular restaurants -- about 6 times a year for the last 5 years. The food -- all of it (except the bread) -- is absolutely terrific. Always. Our favorites are the chicken and lamb kabob and the spinach. The service is...More

Went to this restaurant for the first time last night. The waiters were very nice and attentive to any needs. This restaurant by far had the best Afghan food that I've tasted in the area. The only issue I had with the place is that...More
