I have visited this restaurant several times. The food is good. Love the bread and yoghurt drink. The only think wouldn't line that they don't have an English speaking server. Other than that everything was good.

The place serves the best Afghani cuisine one can think of in the capital. Located int he heart of Lajpat Nagar market, the food is authentic as it can be and their Kabuli Uzbeki is the best of all. The restaurant is always booming with Afghanis visiting New Delhi and it has a decent ambiance too. The menu has variety... More

Been quite a few times at this restaurant, within the Lajpat Nagar complex, serving the sizeable Afghan community in this part of Delhi. I have especially tried the mutton dishes, some of them accompanied with tomato-based gravies that are so similar in taste to the ones you can try around the Mediterranean region. Particular mention I would deserve to both... More

Wonderful. Underrated but a must visit restaurant. Value for money with generous portion size. Unlike the typical commercial restaurant's of Delhi with excessive spices or color when not required. Limited preparations to choose, however whatever you'll choose would surely be a delight! Highly recommended !

In my quest to identify the food jewels of Delhi, visited this outlet. It has been rated high on the Internet and I was satisfied to see that the place matches the rating. Very authentic, very Afghan - surrounded by Afghan patrons, servers, decor and a TV showing an Afghan channel. The setting is complete, they have an impressive menu.... More

It's not easy to find this place. Take the road opposite to the LP-2 KFC. It is about 50 m down on your left. The lassi may be a bit off, and you get it in used plastic bottles, but the rest of the food is mind-blowing. The place is run by Afghanis and it shows in most of the... More
