Afghan Kebab House New York

764 9th Avenue @51st
New York
212 307 112

If you’re down in Times Square and in search of a reasonably priced meal but
a) Want to avoid tourists / don’t want to go to franchise fast food.
b) Don’t want to spend beaucoup bucks on a sucky trendy meal.

Check out the choices of restaurants on 9th Avenue between 49th and 59th street. There a lot of variety of restaurants including Chinese, Greek, Japanese, American Diner, Thai, French, Italian, etc. On 51st Street there is the Afghan Kebab House which serves up some delicious meals. I stopped by for take out a few days ago but the dining atmosphere is also quite a change from the busy streets outside. Inside the Afghan Kebab House, it’s dark and quiet.

On the back wall is an interesting picture of Ronald Regan and an official letter from the White House apologizing that President Ronald Regan had to turn down the offer to visit the Afghan Kebab House but would definitely consider visiting the next time Regan is in New York. Maybe someone needs to tell the owner that Ronald Regan passed away a year ago. But seriously though now that I think about it, I kind of think Regan missed out cause the food here is pretty good. I usually order the Lamb Kebab Plate. For $10.00 you get a large plate of fragrant basmati rice, succulent pieces of marinated lamb grilled to perfection, a side salad and flat bread. There’s also the tzatziki sauce and some spicy sauces that you can add. So next time you are in the Times Square area and are a little hungry, just walk 2 blocks west over to Clinton / Hell’s Kitchen and sample the wide variety of food on this street.

    This place has been going gangbusters since the 80’s! The Reagan thing is because he supported their cause against the Soviets – please learn a little history while you are stuffing your face. πŸ™‚
