Most certainly the oldest restaurant on Rue Léon Jamin (home to several other restaurants that have made our list), it opened nearly thirty years ago. But age aside, its greatest pride (and one that is well deserved) comes from its distinctive Afghan cuisine (however, unfamiliar). Refined, perfumed, spiced but not spicy (no need to fear the burn of peppers), it’s definitely worth discovering. The modest lunchtime menu is an excellent bargain!
Royal soup of veal broth, courgette, soybeans, ginger and coriander
Steamed leek ravioli with minced beef, tomato and dried mint
Cardamom cream with sesame seeds
