This is an up-scale, but casual restaurant. Very nice furniture and décor with authentic Afghan Cuisine. Zephyr Jafri, former President of Telo Electronic took us there with his wife for dinner. He has been going there for almost ten years, a month after they opened. He brings clients and friends here all the time.
My lamb shank was delicious over white rice. We also had ka-bobs. The lamb was the most tender I have ever had; almost a filet tenderness, and very tasty.
We had several appetizers and a Grand Marnier after dinner. Very comfortable and many tables for private conversation for business or pleasure.
Tell the owner, Ali, that a friend of Zephyr Jafri recommended you, and hopefully you may receive some special attention.
San Jose Mercury gave this restaurant three and a half stars (four is the top) and Metro rated it "A+"; especially for their service.
