One of the best restaurant of my whole life, and I am a foodie. The rich flavors were amazing.
Always excellent. Bring out of town friends here often to unanimous positive feedback. Keep up the consistently good work ... and food!
Today, I invited my co-worker and his wife to try my most favorite restaurant. And, once again, we all have a most enjoyable meal. Kudos to the owner Omar and his Springfield manager Weiss for continuing to maintain high quality food and great service.
Great authentic food!
Every time we come we are always treated like we are family. We are always well taken care of and the food is incredible. We are grateful for the warm welcome we receive when we go there.
Fantastic flavors and scents - and terrific supportive service. The lighting is a little strange and overall ambience fits the strip
center Location south of Springfield on a busy highway. But we will definitely return- a treasure of flavor.
EXCELLENT FOOD, EXCELLENT SERVICE, SMALL, INTIMATE, 5 STAR FOR SURE.
THE FIRST TIME I CAME HERE WAS WITH MY SON FOR LUNCH AND COULD NOT HAVE ENJOYED IT MORE AND I HAVE BEEN EAGER TO RETURN. THE FIRST TIME I TRIED TO RETURN THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED DOWN. I'M NOT SURE WHY IT HAD CLOSED AND FOR HOW LONG IT WAS CLOSED BUT THEN HAPPENED TO NOTICE THAT IT HAD REOPENED AND LEARNED THAT ANOTHER LOCATION IN DC WAS DUE TO OPEN SOON. WHEN FAMILY CAME TO TOWN AND TO CELEBRATE MY SONS BIRTHDAY A GROUP OF US WENT. I WAS GREATLY ANTICIPATING MY RETURN AND THE CHANCE TO SHOW OFF THIS GEM TO FIVE PEOPLE WHO HAD NEVER BEEN THERE. UNFORTUNATELY THINGS WERE JUST NOT QUITE THE SAME FOR ME. THE FIVE WHO HAD NEVER BEEN THERE ENJOYED THERE MEALS VERY MUCH BUT FOR ME THE MEAL WAS NOT AS MEMORABLE AS THE FIRST TIME. MAYBE IT HAD TO DO WITH THE NEW LOCATION IN DC BEING OPEN REQUIRING THE OWNER AND CHEF TO BE THERE. DON'T GET ME WRONG, IT WAS STILL VERY GOOD JUST LACKING THE PERFECTION OF MY FIRST VISIT. THE NEXT VISIT ON A SATURDAY NIGHT WILL BE TO THE DC LOCATION TO SEE HOW IT STACKS UP.
The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive to our needs. The staff was very familiar with the menu offerings and were able to help with suggesting dishes to try for those unfamiliar with Afghan cuisine. The portions even for lunch are quite sizable for the cost. We even had leftovers to eat the next day along with a sampling of dessert we took to go.
Came here with my boss, service and food were great.
We celebrated a retirement and the food and service was wonderful.
Outstanding! Food is great and all the servers are really attentive and nice.
I would like to try all the foods there!
It’s lovely environment. I highly recommend it to everyone.
My only complaint is the guests need to be checked more often but it didn’t happen!
We had a great dinner! We have never had Afghan food before and were very impressed! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly! Would highly recommend!
As always, the experience at Afghan Bistro is top notch. The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly. We love it there.
The food and service at Afghan Bistro is consistently excellent. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I’ve been there numerous times with different groups of friends. I love trying different items on their menu and so far, everything’s been terrific. Everyone I’ve taken loves it.
What a quaint little spot. I loved the intimacy of the place. The food was delicious and the staff was exceptional. I will definitely be going back.
Never a disappointment; we try to make it here every few weeks to satiate our cravings for their cooking. Everything is fantastic, from the perfectly made flat bread and accompanying spreads to delicious entrees to cardamon tea to scrumptious desserts. The spinach and roasted eggplant sides are superb. We've had various veal and oxtail dishes, as well as the salmon and vegetarian entrees, and they're all superb. Perfect blend of spices and cooked to mouth-watering deliciousness. The staff and host are always super friendly. All in all, a first rate dining experience.
This was my second visit and they exceeded my expectations. They are friendly, helpful and have fantastic food and desserts! It’s a go to place for my girls night out.
Anniversary, great experience
Please was great and the employees were nice and courteous. Most importantly the food was great. Would come back
It was a group of 6 going for a birthday lunch. We had all ordered our foods, in which 3 double appetizers came out for 3 people. The other 3 had ordered entrees. The entrees didn’t show up to our table for AN HOUR. When we had asked one of the workers what was up, she just kept telling us she’d go back and check to see the status but never actually came back to tell us what was wrong. It certainly does not take a full hour to make three kabobs entrees with rice. We knew something was up when tables that had gone in after us got their food first!!!! The owner himself was not there at this time... and I’m sure would’ve taken care of the situation... awful customer service from workers. At least inform your customers if something is up with food.
The lady and man servers on March 14 for dinner posses very pleasing personalities. Very nice dinner. We keep coming back to Afghan Bistro because of the excellent food and the wonderful people.
We had reservations at 5:30 and were seated; the restaurant filled quickly, small quaint dining area. Great menu choices, serve warm flat bread, with 4 dipping sauces, hot red, mango chutney (little spicy), avocado cilantro and jalapeño. Also brought two bottles of ice water. An ok wine menu. Fantastic choice of appetizers- tried the spicy beef dumplings, it was topped off with tomatoes and small dry cooked peas. Menu described it a little differently. Also tried the Lentil soup, it was brought to table scorching hot, had to wait but it was worth it. For dinner I had the lamb shank moghuli - it was to die for, tender lamb off the bone with a tomato based thickened sauce, egg plant and tiny rice. Other dinners were chicken kabobs cooked to perfection and chicken lawman, tender to the bite.
Family gathering at a GREAT restaurant.
Our servers were welcoming, warm and engaging - attentive without being intrusive. The food was wonderfully spiced, beautifully presented and served hot! I wanted to try more menu items than I had room to eat, so several return trips will be in order! All around delightful experience.
The food was amazing, it was served nice and hot. I ordered the chicken kabob and it was really juicy.
Service was excellent.
The only thing I didn’t like, the windows were completely blacked out. We went for lunch, I would have liked to see outside. I understand if you don’t want anybody to look in but you should be able to look out.
Other than that it was amazing I will go back again.
We had a wonderful meal for five - everything was fantastic. We will be back!
Fantastic meal and excellent, courteous service. For the price of the meals, I expected a little nicer surroundings, but hopefully they are considering that for the future. Will definitely be back, even if it is just for carryout!
First time but won't be the last time. Fantastic, flavorful, served hot and with a smile! Loved it there!
Always excellent! I’m working my way through the excellent menu!
Always a great meal with great service
I invited 3 girlfriends for a late lunch that had not been before. They were shocked at this cozy fine dining feel and all were planning to bring family soon. Great place for us to catch up and enjoy amazing food.
The best Afghan restaurant in the Springfield area is the Afghan Bistro. As someone who has visited Afghanistan as a tourist when being one was possible, I think the cuisine here is the most authentic.
Do make a reservation, because not finding a table there is catastrophic!
Thank you for being nearby.
Great food, service exceptional. Just remember to make a reservation!
The food and service was excellent as usual. The dining area was crowded but not overwhelming. Our out of town guest loved it!
Hidden gem, once you get past the blacked out storefront.
Friendly, helpful staff; great food; reasonably priced. Vegetarian and non, there’s something to please all pallets; dishes deliciously spiced and packed with flavor.
Outstanding food and service all around.
As always, the arshat, lamb tenderloin special, and cardamon ice cream were outstanding!!
