We've eaten as a family at the Afghan Restaurant many times. We love the vegetarian platter (spinach/pumpkin/eggplant). The nan is great. And our babies/preschoolers have always loved the yogurt! And bonus...there is often an Afghan wedding or other celebration going on!

Do not go to this restaurant. They cheat on their bill by adding many items which are not ordered and hope that guest will not notice. Many times we are with friends and do not look at the bill and just hand them a credit...More
