Came here for late lunch during a conference at the Marriot. The starter and mains were both delicious, but the dessert was incredible. Rosewater pistacio ice cream? Amazing, especially with the cardamom tea.

Having lived in San Jose, CA area and spent a lot of time in Fremont, home to a large Afghani community, I have had this cuisine and enjoyed it. As a result, I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant. I was disappointed. I had shrimp kabob, but it was not very tasty and when it was served was not piping hot.
I have had Afghan food before and it was much better than the food I had at this restaurant.

Just went back there after being gone for a decade and it was still excellent. Exquisite flavors and charming, personal service from the owners. Many restaurant goers must've left for the trendier restaurants in town but they should come back to this little gem.

Personally, I have had the wonderful opportunity to eat in many different restaurants, from Worcester to Budapest.
Good food is great!
You will find great food here at the Afghan Grille and may also have the chance to enjoy a BYOB sip of wine.

I have eaten Afghan food in many cities and i keep coming back here. It is a place i lopk forward to when i know i am returning to the area. An excellent eat for vegetarians and carnivores alike. This small welcoming resturant is my favorite. It is not inexpensive-but on par with other DC restaurants. Try the pumpkin dish.
