Italian | McLean, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Valentines Day dinner. We typically order the fresh pasta but we branched out. I had the lamb chops, which were the best I’ve ever had! My husband had the steak. He requested medium rare and it came out medium well. But he said it was delicious. It’s not a steak house. Service is always top notch and atmosphere is romantic. More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s a small restaurant located in a strip mall but looks are deceiving. The service is great and the food is delicious. I had the special which was an oxtail stew served with bismatti rice. The sauce was tomato based and a little spicey and the oxtail was nice and tender. My husband had the chicken and seekh kebabs which he enjoyed. We’re from out of town and will continue to return to Afghan Bistro whenever we’re in town. The food here is definitely made with love and it shows. More

My colleague from India says it's the most authentic Indian restaurant in the area. It's delicious! The chicken saag that I first ordered when I visited this restaurant 20 years ago is no longer on the menu, but they'll still make it for you. This was the first place my wife and I ate when we started dating, so it holds a special place in our hearts. More
