Borani Banjan (Eggplant)
Fried Eggplant covered with a tomato and yoghurt sauce.

Lamb Backstrap and Chicken Tikka skewers
We decided to get the $35 banquet option which was satisfying and extremely filling! The smoky charcoal cooked skewers and the borani banjan were the highlights for me, although the borani banjan could have been less salt-heavy. Service was lovely (the owner of this place is super friendly and we felt very well looked after), and the decor was quite lavish (lots of hand crafted solid wood furniture and Afghan artwork). A good place to come to if you are after a big feed.
