OK, so that bar isn’t terribly high: I’ve maybe only been to four or five Afghani restaurants, but this was easily my favorite. Try the Qabuli pelau with a side of spinach – it’s phenomenal, and the portions are large. The place even has a...More

Never had Afghanistan food before and just had to try what they had to offer. Do not know exactly what we ate but it was spicey and very good. Reminds me of North African food. The service was very good and friendly but the place...More

We first went to a five-star hotel to celebrate a special occasion, but it had no atmosphere and an unappealing menu. We then tried a couple of Bavarian restaurants, but they were crowded, with queues waiting for tables and hot and steamy rooms. Finally, we...More
