Afghanistan Kebab House
This restaurant is a showcase for Afghan cuisine that is made simply and served in large portions at great prices. The narrow space has a Central Asian decor with wall hangings, pictures of mosques and hammered brass accents. Kebabs made with chicken, lamb and fish are popular, as are the vegetarian dishes. There are three more branches over the city; call for details.
As an Afghan whenever I travel, I look for Afghan restaurants. Today, in New York city, I walked to the Afghan Kebab House. I was very disappointed at the food and service. I ordered Maashawa ( lentil soup), and it was nothing like authentic Afghan Lentil soup. It was simply a watered down vegetable soup with a few lentils. I also ordered the combination kebab. The lamb was not tender and smelled funny, and the ground beef kebab was dry. The brown rice that came with it was flavorless, and watery. The only good thing was the bread which was store-bought Afghan bread.
The food was not authentic Afghan food, but rather bad food with the flavor of Pakistani food more than Afghan food.
the service was prompt, the food was very good and it was an interesting little place. We enjoyed it and will go back. We were looking for something different in the middle of winter last year. It was cold and we found this place. It offered just what we were looking for. Food we wouldn't normally eat in a nice quiet restaurant.
