Helmand Restaurant offers Afghani dishes with a wood-burning oven where the famous flatbread is cooked on one side of the room and an intimate fireplace is on the other side.

Helmand Restaurant entrées include tasty choices like qabelee, which is pallow rice baked with chunks of lamb tenderloin, raisins and glazed carrots or mantwo, a homemade pasta shell filled with beef and onions. If you like spicy dishes, try the koufta challow, consisting of beef meatballs with Afghan seasoning sautéed with sun-dried tomato, hot peppers and green peas in a fresh tomato sauce. Several vegetarian entrées are also available such as the kaddo and banjan challow, which is pan fried and baked pumpkin and eggplant served with challow rice and yogurt garlic sauce.

*Due to limited patio seating, we do not take reservations for our patio . Please note the patio or any other special requests in your reservation, or ask upon arrival, and we will do our best to accommodate.

    It was our first time at Helmand and we didn't know what to expect. The service was pretty slow and even though we had a 6:00 pm reservation, the room was quite noisy even though it was only half full There were a number of children who were shouting near our table and their parents were loud, too. We liked the food, especially the pumpkin appetizer which was outstanding. My dish was a combination of lamb and rice. The rice was nicely spiced but the lamb was a bit tough and dry. Maybe overcooked. My husband had a cabbage(?) filled sort of perogies for an appetizer and he liked his main course a lot.

    Love the food here, beautiful atmosphere in the main room (the back room has no atmosphere), loved sitting by the wood fire where they make the bread! Food comes very quickly and no pressure to leave even though it’s very busy all the time. Excellent baklava for dessert too

    Incredible flavor and ambiance. They have a fireplace where they bake bread and it's very cozy. My fiance had the Qabilee, I had the vegetarian special and we loved all of it. Server was attentive and courteous too. Look forward to heading back there again soon.

    It was impossibly loud. We practically had to shout to hear each other. Music was playing but all we could hear was a distracting down beat (it took a while to even realize it was music). Our waitress was lovely but food was plopped on the table by others. Food was not as good as it used to be. I ordered a special but 15 mins or more later, I was told it was unavailable. My new order arrived hot but my partner’s was cold.

    I have rarely written a less than positive review in all of my years of using Open Table. Having heard about Helmand for decades, my husband and I dined there for the first time, with friends who have eaten here fairly often. We all had a less than relaxing evening. Management and staff were clearly lacking on this particular, Saturday evening. The tables were filled, with one exception. A large number of diners were waiting to be seated. This backup created unpleasant crowding. The noise level was very high. We had a 7:00 reservation and weren’t seated until around 7:30. Our orders weren’t taken for another 20 minutes. Our waiter was very kind and explained that many last minute reservations and walk-ins had overwhelmed the management, which didn’t have time to call in more staff and yet didn’t appear to turn anyone away. The host was busy waiting tables, pouring wine and wasn’t handling the flow of incoming diners. Our food was hot, tasty but not outstanding or particularly well presented. We have had better, similar, less expensive dishes elsewhere. In short…or long…we were not overly impressed. On the upside, the decor is beautiful and very thoughtfully pays tribute to the culture, waitstaff were very warm and the manager/owner came over to personally apologize for the unforeseen circumstances. It was not a good first impression. We are sympathetic to the impact of the ongoing pandemic and its effect on prices and the bottom line, yet we feel no need to return in the near future. This does make me a bit sad. Maybe they will have learned from this and you will have a delightful, quieter experience.

    Interesting food and several of the dishes outstanding with a few disappointing. Bread and dips excellent. Service not very attentive. The Aushak was superb. Definitely worth trying. They were very busy our night so maybe service was due to being so full.

    The food was tasty, we got a few starters, a side and an entree. I had asked to sample the special rice with the walnuts and the prunes. The waitress said that wouldn't be a problem, but instead what came out was a large plate of the pallow rice, which we did not order & is always on the menu. It would have been nice for the waitress to point out that the vegetable that comes with the entree was the okra, which was the side that we had ordered. It doesn't specify on the menu that the okra would be a part of the entree. I am recommending this restaurant mostly because it would be the only Afghan food available in the city.

    Meeting up with old friends from Paris. Had talked about this place for years. Last visit was pre-pandemic. Food now not as good, less rustic, small portions, tables so close together we were touching the people next to us. Our friends didn’t know as it was their first visit but I was sadly disappointed.

    This was my favorite go-to restaurant at one time. But the low ratings are because of: 1. Lack of Hygiene: one of my colleagues had a human hair in the dish we ordered. 2. I saw one of the employees leave the washroom without washing hands. 2. Service was slow and we had to repeatedly call them to come and help us.

    One reason I love Helmand is that their vegetarian offerings are delicious and prepared with care. The flatbread, which diners can watch go into and out of the brick oven in the dining room, is amazing.

    I've never had a bad meal at The Helmand. The food is different from what you know elsewhere. Order all of the appetizers if you can. The rice (two types I think) is excellent, fluffy and tasty. The bread is a lure also. Finally, the prices are quite reasonable.
