Nice and friendly restaurant, with intimate atmosphere. Quite simple cuisine, but simulteneously delicious, with unusual impressions. IMHO this is the way how "simple" could mean "delicious". Prices - reasonable. Service - ok, but spoken english could be better. Overall - it was difficult to leave this pleasant place, where you really could take a rest.

Fantastic little find in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Hearty dishes and unusual purposes. It's worth it! Do not hesitate. Simple but authentic decor. Slow but lovely service! Affordable price. Would recommend it changes the classic brasserie. When you have finished its location is ideal to go for a stroll in Montmartre.l

This place is located just below Sacre Coeur church. It's on a side street, but still very close. It is small so we suggest making a reservation. Even with a reservation you might find yourself so close to other diners that you are essentially sharing a table with strangers.
It was also really hot in there, even before the place filled up. Maybe they were just trying to recreate the true Afghan experience!
Our food was ok. The appetizers were the best part. We had an Afghan salad, which was fresh and cool. The best thing we had was the fried cauliflower appetizer. Forget what its Afghan name was, but it was delicious. The green tea with cardamom was good too.
The mains were less impressive. We had a lamb stew with kidney beans that was more likely mutton, and kofta. Both weren't bad but neither was anything special. Both kind of bland.
Overall it wasn't a bad experience or anything, just nothing worth going back for.

The small restaurant, is probably the est in the area. It opens at 8:00p.m., and reservations are almost mandatory due to the size of the place. It's nice, very quite, food a little different from other Asians. There's just one server, so don't be in rush.

I specifically went here on the strength of the TA reviews and was very disappointed. The waiter was rude and unhelpful and I found the food very tastless and far too sweet. I wouldn't go back
