Waited 2 hours for my dinner last night. Left forty bucks on the table for the bread soup and salad for four and left because our entrees were nowhere in sight. Bathroom was disgusting. Board of health should check the place outMore

If you like something different this is a good try. Not gourmet, but seems more like what one gets in an Afghan home. The son of the owner as the waiter gave it a 'home' feel too. The dishes may sound Indian, but the food...More

Web site gives the impression of a 4* or 5* restaurant specializing in Afghan cuisine, it claims many years in the area with many delicious options; good marketing that does not deliver. We sampled the buffet to get a sample/broad taste before a return engagement...More
