Seattle Weekly's Description

One dinner at this Afghan restaurant exposes you to more flavors than five meals at most Middle Eastern restaurants. A starter called quruti consists of thick, triangular bread slices dressed in garlic-tinged yogurt and crispy fried onions; the torshi platter, a sampler of spicy relishes, tastes great with potato bolani, samosa-like pastries seasoned with scallions and cilantro. Standout entrées include badenjan borani (baked eggplant steaks with garlic-mint yogurt) and kabobs, which range from marinated lamb-loin cubes to chicken chunks seasoned with saffron, ginger, garlic, cayenne, and yogurt.

    Get the soup dumplings.

    Finally - a great dim sum place in Issaquah. Don't forget to ask for dishes that are off menu.

    Dim Sum anytime you want!

    Great dim sum for Eastside. The BBQ pork is some of the best I have had.
