Based on all the reviews, I left the restaurant disappointed. In my opinion, just wasn’t worth the value. I like to patronize family owned restaurants so decided to go in for lunch. There wasn’t a soul in there. Maybe, dinner is this restaurant’s thing. Had...More

I liked the food here, the menu has a good chunk of Afghani food delicacies and they can be made to suit your spice taste.

Ok, so I love this place and I challenge you to find a better portion for the price. Good desert, good tea, good food. It's a tad small, but the food and authentic decor really make a visit to this location worth it.

I go here often for lunch breaks or when I just don't want to cook supper. I usually go for the special of the day, which never disappoints. For $13 you really can't go wrong!

Afghan home cooking, Mom in the kitchen. Not a lot of choice, and only a handful of seats, but boy its good food! And very different from most other cuisines, so worth the adventure. Did I say cheap too?
