The food was very well presented, very authentic, and delicious. We had the Saffron Platter for two. The dish had 3 large kabobs- chicken, beef, and lamb. The kabobs were done perfectly: well seasoned and grilled till just done. The flat bread that accompanied it was very fresh. The rice dish had 4 different combinations—all were very flavorful. We did not have dessert but the platter of choices looked very good and were all made in house. The service was very prompt, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small but the interior was decorated with linen table clothes, fancy glassware, and table decorations. Restaurant was very clean. Restaurant is located in Hilton Village. There is a industrial section within a few miles down the road but the restaurant site is within Hilton Village residential section and very safe. We will happily return to this restaurant anytime we are close to Newport News, Virginia.
Oh my. First time, and highly impressed. It was an odd time, so I was the only one there minus staff. Service was friendly and helpful, food was outstanding. I ordered the lamb kebob. It looks like fine dining on the inside, but they had no issues with me dressed as I was. (I'm working on a house down the road). Can't wait to bring my family.
Pre-ordered a meal for 10 people for a late weeknight and were pleasantly surprised to find a fully laid out table upon arrival, followed by excellent and authentic Afghan food served within minutes. This is one of the few comparative restaurants where the lamb was tender, juicy and flavorful. The owner was serving us himself, shared some of his knowledge of food and historic traditions around him which was educational. The green tea at the end was icing on the cake! It would've been nice to have freshly baked Afghan naan but for a small establishment, perhaps it doesn't make sense to go that route. Anyways, I'd still highly recommend this place.
Amazing food! Phenomenal service! It was quite the experience trying food from so many Mediterranean countries at once. We had the cold appetizer sampler. It was so good and so much variety. We also had the chicken cabob and eggplant stew. Both were phenomenal. The Persian tea was delicious! I cannot wait to go back.
Great time there! The owner is very nice and professional. The food tested very fresh and authentic, my family enjoyed the food, and I love the saffron tea.
