    Excellent find. Very similar to indian cuisine. Took the veggie platter. Many veg options. Have nice wine collection. Nice ambience with afghani decorations.

    Authentic hidden gem, owned by Karzai's bro Qayum. The blend of spices in every dish was uniquely delish, incl their special Afghan ice cream for dessert. Can't wait to try out their Boston location!

    I can say the best restaurant in Baltimore. Order the ash soup, and if u wana have steak, go for chopendaz

    The chopendez is a tender, seasoned sirloin cut that is perhaps one of the best cuts of beef I've ever had!

    This place is super authentic and absolutely delicious! Dessert wasn't very good though, not worth getting.

    Get the Mantwo to start. Then share the Chicken Kabab and Mourgh Challow between you and your date. Top it off with the amazing Afghan ice cream with fresh mango, dates, and cardamom.

    Get a lot to share. Everything is flavorful, including the vegetarian dishes, and the portions are reasonable but not huge.
