A calm oasis at the edge of Islington Green, this tiny, tidy restaurant (two tables downstairs & three on the first floor) is decked out with pale walls & blond-wood tables, barely a hint of its eastern origins on display. It’s undeniably cosy (hope for good neighbours), but the food’s just fine. The succinct menu lists four meat & four vegetable dishes – delicately spiced yet richly flavoured curries such as qurma suhzi gosht (lamb with spinach) & banjon borani (aubergines with yoghurt). There’s freshly baked, sesame-studded bread too, as well as Afghan pickles & chutney. No dish costs more than £7. You can sip on green tea for 50p, or a dogh (yoghurt & mint drink) for £1.50, but boozers won’t find a bottle below £18 on the rather uninspired wine list.
