Afghan Restaurant - Crystal

I'm sad to report that one of my favorite restaurants is closing soon. I was at Afghan Restaurant last night and the owner, Hadi, informed me he's closing the restaurant on April 14th.

Last night I had the curry chicken with basmati rice and it was wonderful as always. I will really miss this place. I'm going to try to get a couple of visits in the couple of weeks.

  1. Oh no! How sad. Second Twin Cities Afghan restaurant to close in the last 3-4 months.


    1. I'm bummed, too. Just went there last week, and the owner is absolutely hilarious. He was berating a couple people for not finishing their food, and he actually started feeding this woman whom he claimed to be his sister (but I have no idea if she was actually his sister or if he even knew her at all). The entire restaurant was laughing.

      Oh yeah, the food was good, too.

      1. Sad! I love that place. And I loved not having go out of my own city to get good Middle Eastern food. I love the owner, too, last time I was there was with my best girlfriend and her boyfriend (also one of my best friends) and the whole time the owner was berating my friend for how he was treating us women and why wasn't he covering the whole bill and so on.

        I'll definitely have to eat there one last time. Maybe more than one last time.
