A small cozy restaurant. The afghan food is authentic and definitely worth trying... It's a little pricey but worth the money! A hidden gem indeed.

When I found out there was a popular Afghani restaurant in Pasadena I was excited to try it. I have never tried Afghani food before and this was a great surprise.

The restaurant is small and cozy. It has a mural of Afghanistan on the wall and the staff is very knowledgeable of the menu.

The Afghan cardamom tea was amazing. We also tried the leek and scallion dumplings that were in sauce that was delicate and fresh. You could tell that great care was put into the dish. We also had the kebabs. Lamb and chicken, they were both amazing. The grilled flavors and seasonings were very exotic. We tried the sautéed eggplant with spiced yogurt sauce. That dish was a little bland but very fresh.

I loved the fact that it was a hidden gem and family owned. The food was very fresh and it was a great way to try something different. I would suggest this to anyone interested in trying Afghan food. It has a lot of influences from India but not the spice and heat of Indian food.

Tasty kabobs, but stay away from the cardamom tea or you won't be able to taste much for the rest of the day.
