We came in about 2:20PM, not a customer in sight which made me a bit uneasy. No wait staff around for awhile either. Buffett was closed, so we ordered from the menu even tho we had no real idea what we were asking for or...More

Enjoyed the lunch buffet, it was my first visit here and to an Afghan restaurant. The buffet looks small but its a good selection of fresh items. The pumpkin curry was my favorite. Many vegetarian options such as eggplant, veg curry, veg samosa, pumpkin curry...More
