I went to Afghan Horsemen last night with some friends on a last minute dinner pick. I was really excited to go since reading such great reviews of the place. When we walked in, we were approached by our server who asked us, "Table? Or Cushion?" I thought cushion? Then I looked to my left and said, "Definitely cushion!!" What a neat place! The left side of the restaurant was all floor seating with tons of cushions. The entire ceiling was covered in Persian rug/blanket material, it had a tent-like feel. Tres romantic!!
The prices are pretty steep with entrees ranging from $15-40. The portion sizes were ok, I was expecting bigger. My meal had a big amount of food, but my friend ordered the chicken kebab and it only came with a dollop of rice, a small salad, one skewer of meat and fried potatoes.
Another friend had the AUSHAK which were little raviolis. That was a good plate, and I had the BADENJAN BORANI which was baked eggplant, beef chunks and spinach. Out of all our meals, mine was the one I liked least. The rice was good, but the eggplant was bitter, the beef was dry, and the spinach had a sour taste.
I will mention that the pita bread they serve at the beginning, was out of this world!! It was sooo good.
I will probably head back sometime soon and try something else on their menu.
