Great food and reasonable prices. Chicken was tender and perfectly spiced. Tandoori chicken kabob was wonderful, better than Indian restaurants' tandoori. Chicken Korma tasted very authentic. I'll definitely go again.

This restaurant is in my opinion the Best Afghan Restaurant i have eaten at, considering i have tried Afghan food in San Francisco,London& Los Angeles. The decor is very plain , but i'm there for the food ! The kebabs are the best they grill them over charcoal which is what gives them flavor, try the mixed grill (Chicken,Lamb& Beef) I would also recomend the Palau (rice with Carrots,Rasins&almonds) also try the home made cucumber youghurt sauce or the Cilantro mint chutney as Afghan food is a little dry.

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times. the food is amazing, the taste is really authentic and it has its own style. the decor is very afghanistan as well with rugs and tent type looking wall decorations. But did i tell you that food was great? the Kebab dishes are very tasty. the lamb chops are not as good but the beef and chicken kebabs are very tasty. The half chicken dish is a bit much to eat so i recommend that for take out.
