Great at Yalda Kabob in Horsham

Just finished a terrific dinner from Yalda Kabob in Horsham -- where the old Tonelli's used to be. Absolutely fabulous! As I understood it, the owner is somehow related to the family that runs Kabul in Center City -- another wonderful restaurant. The owner and the other people working there were very friendly and proud of their restaurant, and rightly so. My husband and I were so pleased that we decided to try it! I had the lamb kabobs, accompained by grilled veggies and white rice topped with lentils and ground meat in a tangy red sauce, and they add a small salad on the side topped with a delicious herbed yogurt type dressing. The lamb was tender and flavorful, the grilled veggies (peppers, zucchini, onions, tomatoes) were just right, and the rice was a perfect compliment! My husband had lamb topped with rice mixed with carrots and raisins and loved it! We started off with the fried turnovers filled with scallions and potatoes, with a slightly spicy sauce for dipping that set off the flavors perfectly. Luckily (or not, depending how you look at it!) the kids were able to get pizza and burgers -- so while they missed out on our delicious food, they were able to get something they liked, too. Oh yes -- I shouldn't forget the bread -- warm, delicious, and addictive! On top of that, the portions were large but the prices weren't! I would highly recommend this place. It is casual and homey on the inside with Afghan items displayed throughout the restaurant, and those of you who used to go to Tonelli's while it was there will see the difference -- the new owners really cleaned it up and it looks so much better. This is a place we will definitely be visiting again!
