It was really more than just dinner, it was dinner and a show. The singers were all phenomenal and it was truly beautiful to experience. For the cost of dinner and drinks, we spent enough for a show experience. I loved the entire experience and cannot speak enough about it, but the food was below par. Would not go back for dinner but would go back for the drinks. More

Delicious food, great service and BYOB is huge plus. 3 of us had ashak, bulani and kadu appetizers. All delicious. I had the Qablee Pilaw which is my go to at Afghan restaurants. It was as yummy as I'd hoped. My husband had the Sansom Chicken Kabob which was also tastey. The baklava was probably the best I've had - not too sticky sweet and crispy. More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
