Great to be back in the dining area. The Afghan Bistro team was tremendous providing great service and food.
Great food. Nice selection
the service and the food was great, the waitress was very nice. the food very tasty.
Wonderfully tasting, great value dish.
Food is just awesome, must try their lamp chops, sweet potato stuff appetizer.
One of my wife's fellow foodies had recommended Afghan Bistro to us and when we were looking for a place to go out Friday night we were pleasantly surprised we were able to get a reservation. From the minute we walked in and sat down we felt this was going to be great. I sat in awe a bit as we received immediate attention for drinks and starters, while enjoying the bread and dipping delights of four different flavors. As we were choosing from the extensive and reasonably priced wine list, we tried to figure how we were unaware of this little gem of a place in our area. I chose the lamb chops and beef and my wife had chicken and beef but since we are not well versed in this cultural food we tried as many flavors as possible. This may have been the best dining experience of the year and we will return soon!! Outstanding and Thank You!
Good food, good service.
Located near a busy industrial park.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal- the food and service were both outstanding, and the restaurant is setup nicely to accommodate Covid concerns. We just moved to the area, and will be visiting Afghan Bistro on a regular basis.
Without a doubt, Afghan Bistro is both a neighborhood gem and phenomenal gastronomic experience.
Great appetizers. Great sauces, all the vegetarian dishes were phenomenal. Meat quality could be improved, but it was spiced well.
Service was great. But the chicken kabab and ground beef kabab had no flavor. Chicken kababs tasted dry, burnt and tasteless.
This restaurant is remaining consistently great even during this time of social distancing.
As always, the food was impeccable and the service was outstanding. Although COVID procedures in place, it did not distract from the experience
Entries were outstanding - the leek and potato appetizer was just okay.
Quality food and unique recipes
Consistent with all my previous visits, the chefs and staff at Afghan Bistro continue to provide stellar service and delicious dishes, even in these challenging times.
Social spacing was enforced and outside dining was available. The food is always delicious at this restaurant and the service warm and friendly. Highly recommended for a quiet evening out.
Good food, great environment (intimate), and excellent service.
Best afghan Resteraunt around! Top notch service and delicious food.
This place was amazing!! Especially if eating gluten free!
We have dined there before. The “ambiance,?” “food,?” or “clientele?” create such an atmosphere of “sharing” that we have never experienced at any other restaurant.
Fabulous food...extensive menu with many vegetarian options. You can also request vegan dishes. The lentil soup is a must, and don't miss the dipping sauces!
Have been there many times... and can't wait to return....
The food and service are always perfect here! We are so glad that they are nearby.
Delicious food, great service, felt safe in the dining room durin these crazy COVID times.
The food and service is outstanding. Never disappoints.
Excellent food and service. Wide variety of food from vegan and glucose free food options to traditional Afghan meet dishes.
We went to have dinner on a Friday evening. It was around 1800hrs when we arrived and only two more tables (4 people) were inside dining. Those tables had their plates on the table. Food is good. Good portions, good flavors however the staff focuses on take-out orders more than they do for in-house dining customers. We had to wait over 47 minutes for them to give us our appetizer and the meat was cooke dat the wrong temperature. We had to wait for them to get through the dinner take out rush before getting our food. Upon greeting the server placed two bottles of water on the table. No cups, no silverware and no napkins. We had to ask for glasses for the water. Also this location is not following CDC guidelines for COVID-19. Customers picking up the orders flocks the restaurant and stay inside while waiting for food. These customers were shoulder to shoulder and right next to people dinning in-house.
Current manager is leading a team of consistent quality of food, service to each customer as if they were the only one present. Outstanding.
Been here several times. Enjoy it each time. Service is great, food is fantastic!
The food is terrific and the service is very attentive, even though Omar and Talia are mostly at other locations. We still love it.
Awesome service and excellent food
Believe the reviews. It's incredible! Definitely make a reservation.. otherwise you won't get in.
It was delicious. We asked for recommendations and ordered those. Lamb shank, dumplings and sambosas. Also not to be missed are the sauces with the flatbreads.
Everything was great but I loved the vegetarian combo. Wonderful variety in a single dish.
Always delicious and a fave go to! Plan ahead and make a reservation!
fasntastic food and great service. what more can you ask. Love this restaurant.
We had a reservation for 4 at 8:15. It is a very small restaurant and we were a little early so we had to wait a bit to be seated. The hostess graciously compensated us with a free drink which was unexpected. We all shared the Mazza assortment for 4 — really delicious —not a speck left on the platter. Each couple shared the lamb chops and beef loin special as the entrees were more than generous. They also accommodated how we liked our meat cooked as I like mine rare and partner likes it medium rare. We still had leftovers to take home—a bit of the meat, the rice and spinach vegetable mixture—all was sublime. We will return and recommend to others. The friends we were with had been to the Afghan Bistro before and were happy to return.
I love this place and will be returning soon. Service is excellent. Our server heard of discussing the fact that we were there celebrating the birthdays of 2 in our group and she brought a piece of birthday cake with a lit candle, without being asked. It was a verry friendly gesture.
