About:

  • Afghan Cuisine
  • Compact area surrounded by Al Asif Square buildings (flats)
  • Lack of planning and cleanliness
  • Great place for friends to hang out but not suitable for families to dine-in. Take-away is the right option then because food is really worth trying !
  • Meat = Lamb Only

Menu:

  • Sekh Boti and Sekh Kabab - Very Tasty - Hot and Crispy Grilled Meat and Fat cubes - No spices except salt (well that's my guess)
  • Kabuli Pulao - Very Tasty - Best Kabuli Pulao I've tasted so far !
  • Qeema - Not bad - Mince Lamb Meat, Chana Dal (Bengal Gram Split) and Potato
  • Afghani Naan (Bread) - Equivalent to two regular Tandoori Naan (bread)
  • Pickle - Turnip, Carrot and Cauliflower - Very Tasty and helps in digestion
  • Raita - Not good - Yogurt seems to be out of date
  • Kehwa (Green Tea) with Lemon and suger-coated Almonds - Unique sweet dish, good in taste
  • Good taste and considerable cheap
