Afghani Cuisine [from UK/Ireland]

A new place has opened on Manchester's "Curry Mile" in Rusholme advertising that it specialises in Afghani food. About which I have a total blank in my knowledge.

Anyone know what I should be looking out for to eat?

For info, a flyer handed to me mentions the following dishes which I assume are Afghan:

Qabily Pillow - described as rice with meat, carrots & sultanas

Manto - steamed mince meat, onions, yoghurt, lentil sauce (do I fancy steamed mince? I suspect not.)

Ashek - steamed veggies otherwise as manto

Boulani - looks similar to an Italian calzone - stuffed with spuds, corander & mint.

So, are these the real deal?

As an aside, a number of the takeaways were making a Big Thing of Kobeda kebabs. What them?
