Can anyone recommend any Afghani restaurants anywhere in the greater L.A. area ?
Is anyone familar with one in Rancho Cucumonga which we have heard mention of (although otherwise we are not primarily interested in that area)

Thanks everyone, looking forward to replies

    There is one in Pasadena. I haven't been to it, but it does get generally very good reviews:

    Azeen's Afghani Restaurant

    110 E Union St

    (626) 683-3310

      I've been to Azeen's and I enjoyed it. I especially liked sampling a variety of the appetizers.

        A link to a pictured blog report is, IMHO, always a good idea:

        I'll ask the Afghani owner/chef of a Pakistani restaurant that I go to and report back.

          There's one in Clairmont called Walter's. Also one in Upland on Rte 66 (or Foothill Blvd) called Kabul City. My housemate really likes the one in Clairmont and I really like the one in Upland.

            My family and I have eaten here twice and have been more than satisfied. We will be celebrating my father's 90th birthday there in a few weeks.

              so "I found my" afghani restaurant- a good one, not necessarily the rancho cucamonga one.
              we were on our way to dinner with Sajia Kamrany (she's probably the premier Afghani t.v personality in the world) she took us to

              Chopan Kabob House in northridge

              it was quite good. my "honey" is anxious to go back

              and they have an italian menu as well (but that is another story)

              park valet down the street outside the container store or find street parking -- publi parking lots in the area can be time-consuming
              Get the mantu, for sure. Everything I've had is excellent.
