When I first heard about Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, I assumed it would be heavy into meat dishes. Therefore we avoided trying it. (Me and my wife are "flexitarians." We still eat some meals with meat, but mostly stick to a vegetarian diet.) I stand corrected. In addition to the traditional lamb, chicken and beef dishes, they also have a very nice assortment of vegetarian dishes. We tried a combination plate which included a variety of vegetarian dishes. These inluded baked rice with Kabuli topping (sautéed carrots, raisons & almonds), served with baked eggplant, Dahl (lentil stew), Salata with Feta Cheese, Pakawra (batter fried potatoes) & Chaka.
All in all, the atmosphere as well as the meal were a delightful experience.

This is a cute little restaurant right off of Oak. The food is authentic, very good and the prices are great, not to mention the very friendly service. There are quite a wide variety of items on the menu. We tried the vegetarian egg rolls (a bit too deep fried), the lemon gress chicken and the vegetarian curry. All were quire tasty. The portions were sizeable so we didn't really need to order the egg rolls. Dessert of fresh fruit was on the house. We shall return to try to pho when the weather turns "chicken soupy."
