Fodor's Review

This handsomely outfitted spot will introduce you to the aromas and tastes of Afghan cooking. While the sauces and spices are reminiscent of India's cuisine, the lamb focus is very Turkish and Greek. Highlights of the reasonably priced menu include aushak (leek-filled ravioli served with yogurt and ground beef), and kaddo (a sweet savory dish of sugared pumpkin in a beef tomato sauce). Basmati rice pudding, perfumed with cardamom and pistachio, is an exotic finish. The subdued restaurant, with white tableclothes and real Afghan rugs, does a quick-paced delivery service.
