GREAT dinner at Bahar - Afghani on CIA

Very little has been discussed about Bahar on this board, but we took the kids here tonight and were absolutely blown away.
To start we had the fried pumpkin dumplings - crisp and light.
Entrees: Lamb Biryani and Narange Pulow (spelling?) the latter is a saffron rice with almonds, candied orange peel, carrots and chunks of fabulous grilled lamb. I have had versions of this elsewhere and this was really excellent. Lamb Biryani was slightly spicy with tender lamb and onions. Also had a mixed kebab with lamb chops and tandoori chicken with carrots and raisins - the chicken was amazing but the lamb was overcooked. Next time tandoori chicken only. Also shared a vegetable combo with eggplant, spinach and okra - all distinctly flavored, all yummy. We were two adults and two small children, and the whole bill was under $60 with tip and we had enough food for at least four adults.
Go! It's worth the trip!
