I liked the food here, the menu has a good chunk of Afghani food delicacies and they can be made to suit your spice taste.

Ok, so I love this place and I challenge you to find a better portion for the price. Good desert, good tea, good food. It's a tad small, but the food and authentic decor really make a visit to this location worth it.
