If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some Afghan fare with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Afghan cuisine and drinks from Panjshir in Falls Church. Vegetarians and meat-lovers alike will savor the seductive seasonings peppered into Panjshir's array of distinctive dishes. Sate herbaceous hankerings with the seib chalow's apples and seeded afghan prunes, baked with tomato sauce, walnuts, and split peas and served with white rice ($11.95), or eschew them altogether with the kebab-e degee, a beef kebab cooked with onions, fresh spices, and a touch of sour salt ($15.95). Diversify mouth matter-states with sips of frosty import and domestic beer ($3.95–$4.95) or steaming Afghan-style cardamom tea ($2.95). Diners can sup, sample, and share in the warmly hued dining room, decorated with rich reds and reflective mirrors to flatteringly replicate your edible experience.
The Washington Post named Panjshir an Editors' Pick and Zagat rated its food and service as "very good to excellent." Six TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes and 75% of Urbanspooners like it.
