    We love this hidden gem from start to finish. They bring you a traditional bread, hot, with four distinct dipping sauces. I ordered a refreshing Sour Cherry mocktail. For an appetizer we shared the Hot Mazza Platter, which was wonderful. For entrees we had two kabobs: lamb tenderloin and chicken. They come with a special, very tasty rice, plus different sides—one of eggplant and the other of chickpeas—in yummy sauces. Our guest had a vegetarian quorma, slow-cooked stew of lentils and beans with eggplant in the middle. It was spicy, but not too spicy. Dessert was an amazing pistachio ricotta cake with a fresh raspberry coulis on the plate. Heavenly! We will be back!

    I went to Afghan Bistro to celebrate my son’s graduation. The hostess accommodated my party of 13 by setting us with a table, splitting the checks for everyone, and catering to our every need. The food was so delicious. Stellar!

    Our dinner was delicious- fresh and well prepared, great variety of heat / spice levels available and the lamb is particularly tasty! The service was excellent. Book ahead because it is a small space.

    We always love coming to Afghan Bistro. Last night we brought two friends who had never been to an Afghan restaurant. They enjoyed their meal as much as we did. We ran the gamut of meals, chicken, lamb, veal and vegetarian ( eggplant). There was sharing and everyone enjoyed each dish. The sambosa app may have been the most enjoyable part. The rice pudding was a nice finish. We will be back

    Lamb dishes were delicious and more than enough so take out box was used. Service quick & friendly. Bread with 4 sauces before entree was outstanding! Lovely meal.
