|★★★★★ great food. the saffron rice is the best there is. A bit pricey but worth every dime. a taste you'll soon crave.|
|★★★★★ I'm not sure what the March 29, 2004 review is talking about but I've never experienced nor witnessed anything like that. I have seen guys holding hands walking in here and getting the same level of respect and courtesy as anyone else. If they're not making them feel uncomfortable, I find it extremely difficult to believe they would make an interracial couple feel awkward.|
With that said, I LOVE this place. On weekends, it's good to make a reservation because they get packed. Their food and service is exceptional every single time. If they mess up, which is rare, they make up for it in some way.
I've been eating here for at least 8 years and I will keep going back if they keep offering the same level of service.
|★★★★★ I've never had a bad experience here, the review below (or anything remotely close) is something I've never witnessed and I've dined here for the past ten years. On a brighter |
|★★★★ My husband I decided to try this place out on our trip to Philly and it was great. Definately would go back for more :)|
|★★★ greg -------- what you experienced is unacceptable. i've always been fond of the food/restaurent... but i can live without it. i've witnessed negative attitudes like that before in restaurants, and it's so counter-productive and destructive. a real shame. i wish you had confronted them and voiced it to the owners'. anyway, i'll avoid 'em. |
|★ I thought I should make everyone aware of a situation this past weekend that may make you rethink your decision to eat here|
My girlfriend and I entered this establishment at 9:30 on Friday night. Waiting at the appointed area to be seated, we were eyeballed up and down by the entire staff. After an uncomfortable amount of time, we were escorted past many empty tables in prominent places in the restaurant to be seated in the rear. At this point, we then had to wait for menus, while looking at the menus we were never spoken to again. Customers who came in after us were given water (something we never received); eye contact was avoided at every turn by any waiter or host, while others that came in after us were waited on immediately. After about 10 minutes, which I feel is more than enough time to at least be acknowledged. At this point, we left. No effort was made to stop us, which I took as an admission of their rotten treatment of us.
I feel the need to point out that I am white, my girlfriend is black, and this treatment is unfortunately not unique.
I strongly urge everyone who cares about civil rights, unity and equality to boycott this hostile establishment
|★★★★ Nicely decorated seating area. Excellent food and good sized portions. Service was okay.|
|★★★★★ Food was absolutely fantastic. Although they do give small portions for the price. Good atmosphere and well mannered waiters gives this place a thumbs up. If you don't eat too much but want really good Afghani food, this is the place.|
|★★★★ Great service and food. It was recommended by friends and we were not really hungry but went in and enjoyed everything we ordered. Portions are small though.|
|★★★★★ "My husband and I come here to celebrate special occassions. The food it great, especially the kebabs. You can call in advance and reserve the takht where you can sit on the floor and eat Sunnah-style. The staff is really friendly! Its a must to take visiting friends and relatives."|
|★★★★★ Elegant setting in prestigious historic district with excellent Afghan cuisine. Very courteous service.|
