this was the most EXPENSIVE restaurant ever. the prices were about 20 doller for the kabli palow. i ordered a kofta and kabli palawoo, i ask for naan( bread) and i was told bread comes with platter. but when bread came, it was two 2" recangle bread piece. the rice were cold . kofta palow were 18 doller and quantity of the food was too little . the coke cane were 2.00 doller each that made my bill almost near 50.00 doller. i ordered more bread piece and when ask, i was told it cost 4.00 doller for the four bread of piece. and i told waiter to take it away coz four doller for the whole thing??????????? plus i had paid 6 doller for the meter parking. ........ my little one love to eat roti but she is only 2 years old, and ofcourse kids are messy, but i couldnt offord 4 doller for four little piece of bread plus i had no salon gravy on my plate so what i would be eating my bread with??? i entered that place hungry and i steped out hungry.. overall i spentt about 60.0 dollers at the blink of eyes. and i could actually have spent the same 60.00 dollers with my 10 people family at home or i could have throw a little party at home. but it was WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

I love love love this restaurant. We've gotten their food delivered (through Dining-In) and at the restaurant. And we've never been disappointed (although eating in the restaurant is nicer because the food is HOT out of the kitchen). My favorite item on the menu is the chef's Aushak, which are delicate little dumplings (very similar to home-made Italian ravioli) that are filled with scallions and topped with a delicious, tomato-based meat sauce. We also really enjoy the eggplant side dish called "Buraee Bandenjan." The eggplant is velvety and rich.

I was outraged to read the negative reviews of the food and service at this restaurant. I have been eating here for years and even though I have moved out of the city, I consider it a "go to" choice whenever I am going into town. Service has always been prompt; we often go there before the Arden or other nearby theaters or events and have always had adequate time to get to the show. The food is delicious and different, not the same old fare. I happen to be a lamb fan so possibly I am biased, but I have tasted a variety of the dishes and enjoyed them all. The portions are HUGE so I ALWAYS have lunch the next day so It is a good value as well as a timesaver! My favorites are the pumpkin appetizer and the lamb under heaps of rice with carrots, nuts, and raisins-sweet and savory at the same time. I am wheat intolerant and love that I have a variety of choices, since most accompaniments are rice. Go see for yourself, it is an excellent restaurant.

The food is delicious with an ethnic spin on some items, heavier on some others but all very delicious and highly reccomended. Have been there at least 10 times, have taken dates, parents, and boss there. The service is great and it is white cloth. Go, enjoy!

I'll start with the good: the appetizers, especially the sambosa, were excellent. Now for the bad, which was everything else: the atmosphere is stark and poorly lit and the stained drop ceilings above diners' heads make everything feel unclean. The service, while prompt, was rude. (They removed my plate without asking whether I was done.) The afghan bread was burned. The dal entree I ordered was criminally small with only a smattering of rice to tide me over. The $15 they ask for this plain entree is insulting. Not recommended.

We went out for dinner around rush hour, and we had excellent service. They were very friendly and always there to refill or make sure we were taken care of during the meal. The food was delicious! We asked for it to be spicy, and it had a nice balance of spice with sweetness. Try the pumpkin with ground beef! The Turkish coffee is good as well. I will definitely go back! I only wish there was a location in South Philly.

I had heard a lot of good things about this place and finally checked it out this weekend. Unfortunately, the service (poor) did not compare to the food (pretty good). We waited for 15 minutes before we were even given menus, then waited another 15 before someone finally greeted us. When food eventually came, mine was undercooked. I ordered the kofta kebab (gound beef meatballs, grilled). Even in the dim lighting, I could see that it was red, mushy, and hamburger-like inside. When I said something to the waiter, he did nothing. We had to speak up two more times before someone came around. Instead of apologizing, he grabbed the food and told me "We do not make it well done". When he brought the meat back, it was more than well done- it was charred. We had to ask four times for the check, and were turned off to even order dessert. We had to ask for the check four times. The rest of the food- stuffed grape leaves, stewed lamb- was good, but didn't make up for the service.
