We like the authentic Afghani food available here. A big advantage for us is that for a family where some are vegetarians and some are not, we can get outstanding meals for both. Polite prompt service.

This is very well known restaurant, one of the oldest in Fremont and well known for its excellent food. I love nearly all of their dishes especially the Qabuli Pulao, Challow kabob and Borta. Chapli Kabob is also very good. The entrance is and actually the whole restaurant is very dark and the wooden tables and chairs are OK but... More

I loved every bit of my first attempt at Afghani food. Delicious apps and stews. I had the lamb korma and curry chicken with steamed rice. The taste is very authentic and stands apart from Indian curries I am used to eating. Definitely a worthy experience and will try again the next time I visit the bay area.

We enjoy the tradition of going home to Fremont and taking the family to Solang Pass where we sit on pillows and have a good meal. The food; however, can be inconsistent, but the bolani and mantoo are constantly good. Sometimes the lamb shank and kabobs can be dry and too overcooked, and they are often out of rose ice... More

Being a vegetarian, I prefer Salang Pass to its neighboring restaurant De Afghani since I get more options to eat here. We like to take our friends here to try Afghani food and it has never been disappointing. The service is better too. I like their Bolani, Breads, Salad and main dishes. We always order extra Bolanis since it takes... More

Just had lunch at the Salang Pass. The food was delicious. The restaurant is in a store front and it is not fancy but you are here for the food. The portions are quite large and the service is good, very friendly and you are not rushed. I don't recall seeing any offerings of alcohol. My only complaint is that... More
