The food was amazing, and we enjoyed perfect wait service from Halil and another staff. I ordered twice yogurt with garlic and bread. Thank you for the baklava and Afghan Coffee. Would recommend to anyone who can enjoy dinner without alcohol.

Should try this place if you are looking for spicy soft well made kebabs.. Served with good quantity of rice, very filling. Been here twice, and enjoyed both chicken and lamb. However did not enjoy Baklawa as much as I did in other places.

This is the tastiest most generous portions of food served. The rice is fantastic. And the Ariana salad is very different dressing that is fantastic. The shish kabobs are all wonderful tasting! The meat is soft and delicate....
