Sufi is located in the Karte Parwan area - which is about 30 minutes away from the central districts of Shar Nau and Wazir Akbar Khan. As with L'Atmosphere, the road to Sufi is long and broken. You will have skip across a ditch to step into the premises.
|The perilous road to great food|
Sufi serves authentic Afghan food and culture. There is an art gallery and crafts store on the premises. There is also live music on some nights. Call them in advance to find out when the shows are. It might also be a good idea to order the food in advance if you are familiar with the menu. We were a group of about 20 odd people and our host had pre-ordered the food knowing that the food takes a while to get to the table.

|Hot mess mantu|
|Kabuli pulao (again) with dried fruits this time|
|You can't go wrong with meat and potatoes|
Sufi is fantastic caterer too as we learnt. They came to the office and set up in 10 minutes flat!

|Burani - roasted eggplant with tomatoes and yogurt|
Sufi is a safe bet. You should visit it for the art gallery and the live music. A meal with drinks and dessert will cost you no more than USD 15. However, you MUST drink the fruit juices! There is better, cheaper Afghan food out there in Kabul. Keep watching this space for more of Kabul Eats!
