Had the bandengan with lamb.an, it was so good with hot sauce they have. And the basmati rice was something else. The lamp portion was little less than what I epxected for the price

I stopped in late and was well cared for. The Aushak appetizer was beautifully plated and tasty. The Aush soup was served piping hot but lacked a distinctive flavor - maybe it was too hot. I enjoyed the Firnee pudding for dessert. I was the...More

If you haven't had Afghan food don't be afraid to give this a try. I found the Karai to be extremely moist and tender with great flavor. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Badenjan Challaw. The Baklava was huge.

Nice decor, warm atmosphere (and family friendly) and interesting menu. We opted for shared platter of appetisers, which was a great way to sample lots! Generous main course servings, with nice flavourings. Overall impression of the food was somewhat similar to Persian/mild Indian food. And...More

We were interested in trying cuisines from other countries and decided to dine in an Afghan restaurant. The one closer of two restaurants was the Chopahn Restaurant. The restaurant was small and had loft type second floor but only the first floor was open that...More

The food was amazing. We tried many dishes in two days. You must try the lamb shank, shinwari and qaubli pulawao.
