Tip: Make a reservation beforehand by calling in as this place is popular and fills up really quickly
All the food is cooked by the owner Hassim’s mom, the main chef, in order to ensure that it is authentic Afghanistan food.
The restaurant has been around for 1.5 years.
What struck me about the restaurant was the exquisite furniture and oil paintings depicting the culture of Afghanistan, creating a really authentic vibe to the place which heightened the experience.
Complimentary pillowy soft bread and smooth-textured hummus was served - it was the perfect appetizer to an enticing meal.
The server recommended Mantu - steamed minced beef dumplings, topped with split peas, tomato sauce + yogurt. It was exquisite, the flavours melded together perfectly into a harmonious cacophony.
The beef kebab was excellent with flavourful rice, accompanied by potato salad. There is the choice of Afghan rice (it takes 2 days to prepare this rice) or Cumin (spiced) rice.
Overall, the service was super friendly and efficient, and the waiters were very patient in offering recommendations, explaining everything and how the food is cooked.
