Wheelchair Accessible, Kid Friendly, Valet Parking Available, Delivery, Good for Groups
What this no-frills Afghan eatery lacks in decor (there’s a grungy aquarium near the front and a bright countertop straight out of The Brady Bunch) it makes up for in homey dishes such as qabili palow, in which chunks of tender meat—we like the lamb and the chicken—are buried beneath brown rice, carrots, and plump raisins.
Starters include an excellent version of aushak, a ravioli-like dumpling filled with leeks, and fresh stuffed pastries called sambosas. Pillowy, made-to-order naan exceeds expectations, as do the supersized hunks of flaky, Greek-style baklava stacked in a cake stand by the register.
Also good: Mantu dumplings filled with meat; broiled eggplant with yogurt sauce; curried lentil soup; lamb kebab.
