Great food, nice atmosphere, extensive menu and wine list, and good service. I had salmon kebabs, which were out of this world. Oh, and huge portions; I brought half of it home.

Enjoyed a great lunch. We shared the lamb kebabs which were cooked perfectly (Medium Rare) and more than enough for 2 people. Also shared the pumpkin kadu which was best ever. A nice introduction to Afghan cuisine.

What kind of restaurant does Jeff E go to that has no menu? Sounds too expensive for me, too, but if they have a menu, I read not only the choices but the prices.
