THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Azeen's Restaurant Review

: Afghan cuisine is an undiscovered joy, not readily available throughout L.A. Those who like Persian, Indian or Pakistani cooking will undoubtedly find something of interest on an Afghan menu. Here, in a lovely dining room possessing both Mediterranean and Asian elements, tables are topped with crisp white linen and candles, while tapestries, musical instruments and assorted Afghan artifacts accent the scene. Starters include mantu (steamed dumplings filled with chopped beef and onions, topped with yogurt), aush (noodle, vegetable and yogurt soup finished with a meat sauce), and pakawra-e-badenjan (batter-dipped eggplant sautéed with yogurt and meat sauce). Entrées feature several kinds of kebabs, as well as stews like sabsi challaw (lamb cooked with spinach, onions and garlic) and faselia challaw (tender pieces of beef with green beans, onions and tomato), both served on a bed of seasoned white rice. Finish off a fine meal with firnee (pudding topped with almonds and pistachios) and cardamom-infused tea.
