We ordered a great dinner for four, which included a couple of delicious appetizers, salads, several entrees, and desserts. The food was delicious and the service was great. If we lived in Charlottesville, this would be a regular dinner spot for us.

SOOOO MUCCHHH really good food for the buck. The Naan is superb. The first time I ordered in for delivery, one of the principals came to my office to ensure I wanted THAT much food. I didn't. But then I had lunch for a week....More

We went today with my sister and brother in law, and it was a great surprise : very good quality buffet, very tasty (with both spicy and non-spicy food), and not even expensive. The room is not too big so it's rather cozy and calm,...More

The food here is decent, not very great. It has a mix of Afghan, Pakistani and Indian cuisines. Good service.

This is a lovely place to eat--the food, the atmosphere, the service. If you are a vegetarian, it is better to order off the menu than partake in the buffet. Most of the seemingly vegetable dishes are made with chicken bouillon. From the menu, I...More

Food was delicious. Not knowing much about Afghan food, we tried some items that looked good. The experience was great, as well as the service. We'll be trying the restaurant again for the other items on the menu. My guess is that the rating will...More

We enjoyed our dinner here a great deal, opting for the Dinner for Two for $38. It included samosas, kabobs, salad, baklava, tea, and more. Quite a nice selection. The place was clean, the food fresh, and the service attentive. We could not ask for...More
