I meant to go to the Khyber Pass just up the road but got my Khybers mixed up and ended up at this Afghani restaurant.. It was full of locals/regulars so when I walked in, the experience was a bit like walking into a strange suburban pub in the seventies...conversations almost stopped and cutlery and drinks were downed! However, I was meeting a couple of mates, one who lived locally and we proceeded to have an excellent meal. We shared a Lamb Karahi..chunks of tender meat on the bone in a spicy sauce sizzling in the large Karahi. We also shared a large naan which came speared on a spike which looked like it could do serious damage in the wrong hands.
However, the highlight was the 'Charsi Tikka' perhaps the best tikka that I had ever tasted . Salted and lightly spiced chunks of tender mutton which made a very decent meal memorable.
