This restaurant is new and beautifully-decorated, but even the lush and spacious ambience pale in comparison to the food. Afghan food is such a flavorful experience and everything was done with care. Expect perfectly-seasoned tender meat and fluffy rice unlike anything I’ve had anywhere else. I highly recommend the lamb chops or the huge ribeye steak with the kabuli rice. If you like a little bit of spice, drizzle some of the house-made condiments that are brought to your table in lovely little bottles. You must order a bright and crunchy shepherd salad to go with it. They give you the yummiest bread to complement the amazing food! I’ll also commend them for their presentation, our flower-shaped pistachio pastry dessert was a work of art!Parking: Plenty of spaces in the lot
