Wow! I tried this place last night, solely based on MP user reviews, and it turned out to be one of the best meals I've had in months. The food was absolutely delicious! And so reasonable! Not sure what it's like inside, but I would recommend take-out from this restaurant to anyone. Excellent dining experience. Thanks MP!

I never had noticed Ariana - it's a very small storefront - but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit! The decor was authentic and pleasant. The owner was very sociable. Our waitress was somewhat inefficient and did not understand much English, but the service was fine nonetheless. The food was great. My friend and I ordered the Spinach Samusa appetizer, which came with yogurt. I suggest also using the house-made green sauce present at the table to dip the dumplings. For the main course, we got the Kabuli Palow and the Aushe Burida. The former had a delicious blend of ingredients in the rice, and the latter was similarly flavorful - again, use the green sauce, it's excellent. For dessert, we picked the Firnee, which was a perfect end to a good meal: a perfect sweetness quotient. Also try the Dough drink, which has a curious consistency - very good. The other diners also appeared to be enjoying the experience. The portions were not large but filling, and the price was right. A GREAT FIND!

I went there with a group of friend and we all absolutely loved this place! The manager/waiter was amazing and the food was fantastic. It also turned out to be very cheap. Totally recommended!!

I work in the city so am very critical of the places I eat at. This place is definitely a WINNER! It's a small narrow sitting area, but is well decorated with traditional Afghan memorbelia. The food was excellent, I had the mixed kabob and my colleague had the Kabula Pulwi. The kabob were very tender and juicy. The Pulwi with rice that had raisons and carrots and cubes of lamb (Delicious). We had the Dough drink (yogurt drink), oh man, it was good. It's about 20 blocks from my building but I will definitely trek down there again and again!. I highly recommend this place.

Very delicious food especially the kofta kebab. I really was impressed by by the carpets hanging from the wall and the friendly waiter.

While walking down 9th Ave, casually searching for a place for lunch, our party came upon a small place serving Afghan food. This was an incredible find. We ate the dumpling appetizer, followed by various kebabs, and vegatable curries. The food was great. The service was great. Although the waiter/manager spoke broken English, he was thorough, did not rush us, and clearly took pride in his cuisine as he beamed shyly when we responded enthusiasticaly to the food. There's even reasonably priced wine that pairs well with the food. We would each eat here again. We heartily recommend this place to others. Congratulations and thank you (if you, the owner and staff read this).
