Venue Info

This cozy neighborhood resto in Russian Hill cooks up authentic Afghani fare like kaddo (baked pumpkin), aushak (scallion dumplings), and pallow (baked rice with lamb shanks, raisins, and julienned carrots). What the spot lacks in ambiance (the interior is pretty standard with a few tables but is comfortable nonetheless) it makes up for in flavor with bold, homestyle dishes.
