Lamb Shank Moghuli
Bone-in lamb shank and roasted eggplant slowly cooked in a tomato based stew infused with garam masala, served with long grain saffron basmati rice.
Tenderloin marinated in our house spices, charbroiled to perfection and served with yogurt with cucumber and dill.
Delicious food from appetizers to desserts. Also love the dipping sauces from a savory avocado based dip to spicy mango, green & red dips.
This place is such a gem!! Delicious food and the most amazing service!
Excellent food. We went there a number of times before the pandemic and it was great to be able to return. Get the lamb shank with eggplant.
Dont let the location fool you. Love this restaurant -- great food, service value! The staff was very gracious when we had to push our reservation back a 1/2 hour. Highly recommend this little gem.
Fantastic service and food. Can’t wait to go back to try other items on the menu.
As is consistently the experience, superb. Eva, the manager and her staff are flawless.
First time dining in since COVID. Well worth the wait because food was fabulous and we really appreciated the extra care provided by the staff.
We ate outside for a change. Everything was perfect as usual. The staff is always super friendly.
The bread , sauces, lamb and veal were so very well seasoned and prepared!
Our server Eve brought us champagne when she found out my mother in law was celebrating a birthday
The cardamom milk cake was yummy
We can’t wait to try their other locations
The food was great and the service good. All the servers were masked and there was hand sanitizer on every table. However, the space is small and they really packed in the tables. There were as many tables now as there were pre-CoVID. If I weren’t fully vaccinated, I would have left. Even then I was still a little uncomfortable.
When I made the reservation through Open Table I indicated we were celebrating our anniversary. During dinner one of the servers brought us two glasses of champagne. I looked at her confused and she said “it’s your anniversary isn’t it?” Then she brought us a piece to of cake to share for dessert. The food was OUTSTANDING! Very reasonably priced as well. Needless to say we will be going back!
The food and service at the Afghan Bistro are always top notch. Mostly the social distancing was fine. It got a little crowded at the end of our meal.
Good food, excellent service. A fine dinner all around.
Love this bistro. The food is excellent and good value. Service is great. I will be back.
They have outdoor tables, but they are just two sad tables on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant, at the edge of the parking lot, beaten by the late afternoon sun. Go inside the restaurant, where it's darker and cooler and the atmosphere is much more pleasant.
The food and the service are wonderful. We dined at 6PM, and there were few other diners so we were spaced far apart.
Always a wonderful meal —- we absolutely love Afghan Bistro. The service was top notch! And perfect all evening.
Everything our waiter recommended was outstanding with unique flavors. The prices are very reasonable and the portions were generous. We were fortunate to find this place as we we’re driving north but would highly recommend it.
As usual great food. Always coming back to this wonderful restaurant.
Afghan Bistro is now one of my favorite places to eat. I ate here for the first time four years ago. It never fails to be spot on and servers and staff are extremely nice and helpful. The food is addictive. I just can’t say enough good things about this restaurant.
Goodness gracious—what can I say? This is my favorite restaurant in the DMV. The food is delightful and the service is A+. We invited friends who had never had Afghan food and I’m pleased to report that they were not disappointed. The lamb chops are perfect—the best I’ve tasted anywhere. There was this dessert—eggless something...tasted heavenly...incredibly smooth, light, creamy, cool on the tongue...I’m in love. I haven’t tasted anything here that I didn’t like. I honestly think I could close my eyes and order whatever my finger landed on in the menu and I would love it.
The food is always good. You can never go wrong with the veal and potatoes and the cardamom cake.
My only complaint is that very load music.
Service was impeccable as always. Nice little date night spot for something different.
I’ve been a couple times and they’ve never disappointed.
I’ve been going to Afghan Bistro since they opened. They’ve been consistently excellent. I ordered the chicken kabob which was delicious. Seasoned and cooked just so and complemented by the sauces provided. A perfect lunch.
First time having the Afghanistan food- it was delicious! The service was great, and the music was soothing not too loud. The restaurant is clean and comfortable to dine in. Very pleased with the experience.
We eat here all the time and have never had a bad meal. Food is fantastic as well as the service. It is a hidden gem.
Wonderful food and attentive service on my first visit to this Northern Virginia bucket list restaurant. I should have gone here years ago but I will be back regularly!
A favortie place. So so good.
They did an excellent job with spatial distancing and the food was fantastic.
This is one of the best-kept secrets of our area. It is always a treat to go and I am so glad they have in-person dining again.
Great food. Lovely personal service and the restaurant is handling Covid safety really well. We’ll be back to eat the lamb.
great great great great great great great great great
As always, our experience at Afghan Bistro was outstanding. We try to go about every other month and always have great food. The staff was great and always available to help. Highly recommend!!
Everything we had was fantastic—expertly cooked and with complex flavors. The service was professional and friendly.
Lights kept flickering poor ambiance
I'm vegan and they have a lot of great options! The food is always amazing!
This was my first visit, and it was wonderful Everything we ate - the dips, the hot mazza sampler (especially the eggplant!) - was flavorful. Our entrees, both the lamb stew and veal risotto, were warm and savory. The cardamom cake was the perfect sweet ending. The service was friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be returning.
Outstanding food quality. A bit out of the way, but absolutely delicious.
Had dinner here with my family and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the beef tenderloin medium rare and it was perfect. We shared the leek dumplings to start and they were delicious as well. Highly recommend anything on menu. Service was very good as well.
