    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!

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

    An inviting interior and warm staff welcome you in this restaurant owned by the brother of the Prime Minister of Afghanistan. The Kaddo Borawani (baby pumpkin) is unforgettable. Read more

    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.
