I go to this restaurant only occasionally, not becuase I don't love it but becuase it's not really close to where I live. The food is great and I love the turkish style coffee they serve. They also bring a very generous plate of afghan rice with their platters (sometimes you have to ask for it, but it is included with the platter). I never leave unsatisfied and the food always tastes great.
I read another review about the table and floor being dirty. I have seen a few times when things could have been a bit cleaner, but I think it may be hard when they are very busy and the lighting is low. In my 20 to 30 times eating at this restaurant, I have not experienced the level of uncleanliness mentioned by that reviewer. Maybe a fork needed rewashing or a booth seat or table had a spot missed. Nothing worse than that.
I had had a short but nice conversation once with one of the servers one night just before closing time (after a wonderful meal). After that, I hadn't been back for at least a year and when I did, I got the same server. She not only remembered me, but mentioned our conversation too, and remembered the details! It was really nice and I felt like she really cared! How rare for a busy restaurant like that.
Also, the belly dancing on Saturday night is a lot of fun. The dancers do a good job of working their way around the room and the show doesn't last so long that it becomes a major disruption for those people who are not really into it.
I love the decor as well, especially the historical photos and items in the display cabinet. The cushion seating may be great for some people, but I have circulatory problems and only like to sit at the booths or chairs.
