Fodor's Review

Owned by Hamid Kharzai's brother, Qayum Karzai, Helmand serves outstanding Afghan fare in a casual yet elegant space. Beautiful woven textiles and traditional dresses adorn the walls, adding color to the simple white table settings. Try one of the many outstanding lamb dishes such as kabuli pallow (lamb tenderloin with carrots and raisins) or the vegetarian aushak (Afghan ravioli). For starters, kaddo borwani, a sweet-and-pungent pumpkin dish, is unforgettable.
