The lamb kebabs are to die for. First time I ever eaten Afghan food and liked it. Portions are generous and tasty. I will like to return to this place on my next trip to NY.

I visited this place for a snack: ordered the aushak, which I've had at probably 4 or 5 other Afghan places on the west and east coasts. This was by far the best: tender thin-dough dumplings, plump with scallions, with delicious yogurt and tomato sauces....More

Ate there for lunch. The place was empty and they acted like they would rather not have me there either. Food was good, but nothing special. When you factor in the price (about $11) of a normal lunch entree, I am a little disappointed. All...More
