The restaurant is run by two nephews of the original kebab master, Omar Aziz. They have created an extensive menu of mouth watering dishes and they are committed to staying in San Francisco's lucrative restaurant market where there is little competition for well priced, delicious, Afghan street food.
The restaurant is small with around 22 seats. I found the ambiance sterile, the art synthetic but the great food is what won me over.
I ordered the main staples of any good Afghan restaurant; bolani kachaloo, chicken kebab and Afghan ice cream. All three items along with the complimentary shor nakhod (Afghan spicy potato salad) were wonderful.
For a small restaurant and single wait person, the service was timely and efficient. I left very satisfied with a to go order of bolani in hand for next day's lunch.
De Afghanan has two locations in Fremont, one in Livermore and another in Berkeley.
