4341 Manchester Ave Saint Louis, MO 63110
This Afghan restaurant--the only one in the state of Missouri, or so they claim--brings Middle Eastern cuisine to the Midwest in the bustling Grove neighborhood. They serve both lunch and dinner, with plentiful vegetarian options and some Indian- and Pakistani-influenced dishes.
Unfussy, laidback and on the small side. The friendly servers are always happy to explain dishes so let curiosity be your guide.
Chicken Teeka Masala and Beef Koobeda Combo
If you’re new to Afghan food, this is the perfect place for an unintimidating and delicious introduction. If you’re a muntoo master, you won’t be disappointed by the many savory, authentic dishes crafted by head chef/owner Quayum Mohammad, an Afghan immigrant himself.
