This place is truly A1. It’s located in Flushing and has some of the juiciest Afghan kebabs and the largest portions of broth-simmered rice in the city. They also serve hummus, samsa, chicken soup, lamb shank, salmon kebabs, and a delicious assortment of mantoo (Afghan steamed beef dumplings in yogurt sauce). Their mantoo is a must-get because the texture of the translucent, meat-filled dumplings and yogurt sauce just makes sense. It’s chewy but al-dente, and reminded us of eating bolognese pasta in the best way.
