Cheap, fresh, boldly flavored kabobs and other Afghan specialties await in this bare-bones but sparklingly clean restaurant near the Concord Police station. Oh, and did we mention cheap? Start with the bolani kachaloo if you’re feeling adventurous, and prepare to be wowed by potato, green onion, and herbs stuffed into flat bread so delicious, you could eat it plain. A similarly flavorful dal combines lentils, garlic, and herbs, and arrives over fluffy basmati rice. The classic lamb kabob gets its oomph from a distinctive marinade and a spell in the restaurant’s tandoor, or clay oven. Kabobs are served with rice, naan, chutney, and a salad of tomatoes, onions, and cucumber. Chicken and beef wraps go for $4.95. Tea is a great accompaniment to these dishes, and although the menu says it’s green, it has a more neutral flavor than most Chinese green tea. Order a slice of the baklava; it’s tender and luscious, but not too sweet. Service is fast, efficient, and friendly. Lunch and dinner daily.
