This place is unreal. Not as unreal as it used to be but still awesome awesome. One of my favorite restaurants in the bay area. There beef kabob, awesome, mantoo dumplings, awesome, pumpkin dish, awesome, everything awesome. Unfortunately their desserts aren't nearly as good as when I first went here years ago - it used to be this beautiful combination of vanilla icecream, pistacios, rose water, and clear noodles wawaweewa
I was craving Middle Eastern food after it had been over 20 years since I had been to that part of the world. While I was not in Afghanistan the food at Salang Pass is as authentic as it gets here. Portions are more than ample and it tastes great. Service was a little slow at first but got better as the meal progressed. I recommend it.
I'd been largely disappointed with Afghani restaurants in the Bay Area until I came upon Salang Pass. Absolutely delicious food (we had the Mantoo, Aush Soup, Chalow Kabab, and Qabuli Pullao) with genuinely nice staff and prompt service. The atmosphere was so comfortable, I felt at home being the occasionally loud person I can be.
The Faluda (dessert) was good, but I've had better. Nevertheless, a happy dining experience. As a consequence of which, we probably ate too much...
I moved to Fremont about a year ago, and eveyone told me to be sure to sample the afghan cuisine. Eventually I did...and the only thing I regretted, was that I hadn't done so earlier! I went to Salang pass with a buddy of mine from San Mateo, and we were pleasantly suprised by how good the food was. Neither of us have had Afghan food previously, so having nothing to compare it to, I found it to be delicious, and feel like I need to pass that along. The service was reasonable, it wasn't too crowded, nor was it overly expensive...all rare qualities in norhtern california. I'm not sure if it was specifically this restaurant that we enjoyed, or if it was the change of pace from traditional asian cusine that was so welcomed. Regardless, it was delicious, and we liked it.
a group of us shared a few dishes and they all tasted great. we all walked away stuffed. the ravioli entree was delicious, the lamb was made just right (most places make it too dry), the eggplant appetizer was amazing, and surprisingly the baklava was excellent. i'm usually not impressed with baklava because it tends to be made either too sweet or too oily.
our waitress was great about helping us pick our dishes and the prices were fair.
the food here is pretty good. the service though makes you regret coming here. the place across the street (de afghanan i think it's called) has equally good food, and more importantly, way better service.
