Alas, a fine (if often invisible service) resturant spoiled by the rise of the hookah. Still go there occasionally, but I'd rather order out, as all the hookahs spoil the ambiance and make me wonder if I'm going to be overcome with smoke constantly.

Food is tasty, sometimes a bit over-seasoned but still good. This was a great place to eat before the introduction of the hookah bar. The entire dining area is now filled with smoke. Soon, you will become nauseated. You also need to know that hookahs are fueled by coal. Burning coal emits tar and other carcinogens. You will be breathing this.

Tasty food and friendly service in a cozy little restaurant. The food was deliciuos, and the menu was extensive. One of the nicest things about this place is that the servers were very friendly and welcoming. I love it!

Well in my opinion this was a really good spot!!--Small and intimate, with middle eastern decor keeps a nice cozy feeling! They had this one set up to your immediate left upon walking in, that has a table and a nice cushion area surrounding it. The cushions we high and allowed you to sit indian style while eating, which I thought was cool. It was perfect for me and my lady friend as it seemed to seperate us from the rest of the room! Which allowed me to pay the uttermost attention to her, and not the group of young women who were having a girls night out a few tables away!(man just my luck, jk:)~ , But the place keeps a nice themed afghan feel. Not to mention its a great lounge spot leaning on pillows and cushions while smoking hooka which becomes available at 10:30!! i had a good time and the food was great!!

The food is excellent (try the pumpkin turnovers- that's what keeps me coming back!) and it's one of the best places to hookah- you can even hookah indoors! Highly recommended.

The bathroom is gross and the service was less than stellar. We made a rezzie for 5 and they insisted it was for 3 and stuck us in a table they acknowledged was for 3. Everything else was great. The decor was cool with draped fabric on the ceilings. The hummus was average but the dumpling appetizer was amazing. The green sauce that is on the table was amazing - spicy cilantro flavored and I put in on everything. I had the lamb curry which came with a plate of rice. The rice was seasoned and fantastic and the curry, esp. with a helping of the green sauce, was amazing. My friend had the lamb kebab, which had a great flavor, and another had the sweet and sour chicken which, upon inspection, actually looked like brown shredded beef but tasted wonderful. You instantly recognized the sweet and then were hit with the sour flavor. Besides the service my only regret was not having leftovers to enjoy the food again today. After 10:30pm you can smoke flavored hookahs. Recommended for the adventurous palate.
