First review
This location has closed. Afghan Grill features authentic Afghan cuisine in a richly decorated dining room. The food has Mediterranean and Asian themes; for example, grape leaves, hummus and salads are appetizers, while entrees include lamb, chicken and beef.

Afghan Grill is located in the corner of a small shopping center off Preston Road. It’s somewhat hidden so is easy to miss. There are two larger rooms at either end connected by a narrow hallway. Only the main dining room, which has a small bar, was in use on a Friday night. The tables have ornate and beautiful tablecloths, but they are covered by plastic tabletops. The style and decorations here are rich and colorful, from artsy light fixtures to exotic tapestries, colorful Persian carpets, and diverse foreign ornaments.

The food was appetizing and well-cooked but not exquisite. Two appetizers included dolma grape leaves and a bulanee fried turnover with leeks. The grape leaves were filling and enjoyable with a light lemon/vinaigrette taste. However, the bulanne was subpar; it was bland, hard to chew and tasted reheated. The entrees were definitely a cut above and demonstrated real talent in the kitchen as both the meat and vegetables in four dishes were cooked just right and served together promptly. Badenjan chalao eggplant with chicken had a savory medium spicy taste. The Aghan rice really stood out; it was succulent, braised with light oil, and it practically melted in one’s mouth. A mantoo steamed beef dumplings dish also was tasty. It had copious creamy sauce with a hint of cloves. The service was pleasant and attentive and the owner conversed with guests in a personable way. There was no pressure to leave after the meal. All in all, Afghan Grill provided an enjoyable dining experience and is worth a return visit.
