Khyber Halal Restaurant & Catering

This culinary crossroads blends foods from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India, and each nation's cuisine is as diverse as the restaurant's staff of family members. Here, flavorful bowls of rusty red chicken tikka masala and plates of rich goat biryani sit alongside such Afghani specialties as yogurt-topped eggplant and giant potato pancakes. Start with very good seasoned ground chicken inside a flaky triangular samosa and accompanied by a cool mint chutney, or a mix of spiced potato, flattened and fried into a golden brown shami kebab patty and served with a refreshing and creamy sauce of yogurt, vegetables, and spices. The hummus is delicious, and the menu is flush with dishes in which meat meets rice, sauces, and skewers combine in traditional Middle Eastern ways.
