A warm, cozy interior where Afghan tapestries abound. Meats come expertly cooked and tender; vegetable sides like okra and pumpkin are flavorful; Afghan bread is meh.
Neighborhood mainstay Afghan Kebab House has consistently provided delicious and traditional Afghan food for over twenty years on the Upper East Side.
In addition to the namesake kebabs, the restaurant serves traditional appetizers, spiced half-chickens, a vegetarian platter and dessert.
