Always pleased to bring friends to one of the best 'secret' spots in Northern Virginia.
Afghan Bistro is our favorite go-to restaurant. The food is incredible, and the service is always outstanding.
Food & service were VERY excellent as usual. table & surrounding area was crowded, as usual.
Intimate restaurant. Service outstanding. Food was superb. Casual atmosphere. Highly recommend
First time visit and everything was delicious. Weiss was a very generous host and I strongly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
I enjoy spicy foods but my wife does not and we were both very happy with our plates. Our food was served hot and quickly.
We enjoyed this restaurant so much we were back a week later! It was wonderful!
Excellent as always!!
great always good
I was told this place was great but I feel that great truly understated how fantastic the food actually was. Everything was amazing from the service to the food. I will definitely be returning!
Outstanding food & service. Great vegetarian selections. Crazy good pistachio & ricotta desert.
As always, great food and great service! We love Afghan Bistro!
Good service, outstanding food--the most sublime Afghan cuisine I've ever had. I will definitely be back.
The food and service were spectacular. Our server explained the menu and offered valuable suggestions, even provided a sample of something we had never tried before.
We love Afghan Bistro. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. Such a great find!
we love this place! the food is great and the staff is attentive. It is the best restaurant in Springfield.
Awesome time at Afghan Bistro. A seriously good meal for a deal. Will be returning soon.
The delicious authentic food and attentive staff at Afghan Bistro keep bringing us back numerous times!
Afghan Bistro exceeded our demanding expectations, in food and service.
The food took me back to Kabul where I loved a few years ago. I’ve frequented other Afghan restaurants in the region, and now vote Afghan Bistro the gem of them all.
The service was top-notch! two servers manned the fully-seated restaurant with graceful precision. Our glasses never went empty, our food was on time, and our table never wanted for attention despite the restaurant being quite busy.
We are ecstatic to have found this neighborhood gem!
Birthday dinner for a former marine. The food is so delicious and NOT too heavy at all. And the value for your dollar is outstanding. Our servers were so nice. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time.
Consistently fabulous food and great service.
I have visited Afghanistan (a vacation, many years ago), and I know that they have the best food anywhere! It is such a pleasure to have such authentic food so near to me. The owners are wonderful, the staff friendly and knowledgeable about the food. What more to say? This restaurant experience is just perfect!
Great food. So glad we made a reservation because it was packed! A mark of a good place
Absolutely Great Afghan food. The lamb tenderloin entrée is exquisite.
Afghan bistro is outrageously delicious every time! It never ever disappoints. The lamb shank with the eggplant is my favorite meal, but everything I’ve tried has been outstanding. My favorite dessert is the rice pudding. Cheers!
Cozy restaurant in an out of the way location with dynamite cuisine. Easily some of the most succulent stews I have ever had. Must try the dumpling appetizers - any of them - you will taste the difference between freshly made like they do here and everywhere else. Any time we are in town, we will find a way to revisit this gem.
Amazing food and service, as always!
We got a last minute reservation at 5:00 for a 5:45 table (it was totally booked from 6:00-7:45). We ordered two specials - one a beef dumpling and one goat stew over rice. Both were tasty and moderately spicy. The beef was by far our favorite and I would order it again. I found the goat to be chewy and I was not always sure what I was eating. This was probably the first and last time that I would order goat. The service was helpful and the wait for food was minimal. The portions were very large and we both took home at least half of our meals. I would definitely go to the restaurant again after making reservations well in advance.
Fantastic flavors! Our favorite restaurant! Thank you for the birthday surprise!
Great find in Springfield
Our family loves Afghan Bistro! We've been regulars since the day they opened, great food, generous portions, great service, friendly staff! We take our visiting families and friends here and they love it!
We enjoyed our visit there and felt lucky to get in on the same day as we'd been trying for a couple of months to get a table online. I had the beef dumplings and my husband had the lamb shank. We took most of it home because the portions were enormous! Order one of everything. It's worth it.
Excellent flavors, amazing combinations. A delicious meal.
Very good food and friendly service.
We started eating at Afghan Bistro shortly after they first opened. We have eaten here at least 6 times in the last three years. Food is always excellent. They really listen to their customers. My wife is a vegetarian and, although their food was great, they only had a few vegetarian items on the menu. We asked that they add some more. On our next visit a couple months later they didn't just add a few more items, they had an entire new vegetarian section on their new menu and the new items are wonderful. The staff and service is always friendly and great; never overly hovering, just the right amount of attention. We enjoy the Afghan Bistro so much we bring new friends with us each time we go and they are always impressed.
We came all the way from Arlington!!! Worth it! Excellent lamb shank!
Absolutely delicious! I had the greens (turnips, collards, kale, spinach, mustards) in the turnover and the oxtails. Spicy and tasty and the staff was very attentive.
It was our third visit to Afghan Bistro and we have enjoyed every one--and will be back!
We also have introduced four family members and they all also greatly enjoyed the food, the service and the experience. Great menu, friendly and excellent service and most enjoyable dining.
Very friendly atmosphere. Service was excellent. Food was terrific. Will be going back many times.
I recommend this diamond in the rough to everyone. A nice and friendly family owned restaurant with delicious food.
This place is all about authentic Afghan/Persian food! Absolutely delicious! I have not had an average meal at this place since it opened almost 2 years ago, it is always great!
