City Pages' Description

Right across from Macalester College, Khyber Pass serves Afghan home cooking in classic college-town style--that is, in large portions, with plenty of vegetarian options, in a room that's fancy enough to take your visiting parents to, but not so expensive that you couldn't pick up the check with your birthday money. The kabobs of lamb and chicken are always good bets. Vegetarian combination plates with sabzi, fresh spinach cooked with leeks and spices, or kachaloo (curried potatoes) are simple and satisfying. A serviceable wine list, rose-water rice pudding, Afghan green tea with cardamom, and pretty, piped-in Afghan music round out the experience.

    Khyber Pass sampled at the City Pages Wine Tasting a couple of years ago and had a line of people waiting down the hallway! The food is unique, delicious and affordable.

    Love the chicken kebabs!

  • Kim V. on 12/14/09

    Go at lunch and have the buffet. It's fabulous. And then top it off with some sweet, creamy, perfectly spiced chai.

  • Blackdog L. on 09/29/11

    unique food and place, the kebobs are excellent.

  • Eric W. on 08/25/12

    Be sure to get the baclava for dessert. It'll be the best you've ever had!
