Has Anyone Here Ever Eaten in an Afghan Restaurant?

The reason I ask is because in Hicksville, there are three Afghan restaurants within several blocks of the train station. There is a large Indian community in Hicksville, and a plethora of Indian restaurants along a stretch of Broadway south of the train tracks. I'm guessing that Afghan cuisine must be somewhat similar to Indian food. Have any visitors here dined in an Afghan restaurant? If so, what did you eat and how did you like it?

I haven't, but I'd definitely give it a try.

I used to live a couple of blocks from an Afghan restaurant. It's pretty good.

I can't remember the names of any dishes, but most of the dishes seemed to involve at least one of three elements: lamb, yogurt, and rice.

If someone had served it to me and said that it was Indian food, I would have believed them, but I don't know very much about Indian food. From my limited experience with both types of cuisine, it seemed like the Afghan food was a bit heavier and more meat-oriented.

Of course, you never know. Maybe that was just one of the chef's quirks. Or maybe they changed the food a little to appeal to Australian tastes.

Thanks Gordo. I'm not really into eating lamb. I used to eat Indian food frequently, as Hicksville has a large Indian community and I used to frequent a restaurant called Rangmahal. But ever since my wife and I had two kids, we don't get out as much as we used to.
