Khorasan Kabob House is closing March 10, but the owner hopes to reopen the Afghan restaurant soon in a new location.
Arian “Abdul” Wisaal is not satisfied with the current location, which is in the middle of a retail center along Garfield Avenue at 12th Street.
He opened the restaurant, which originally was called Global Village Cafe, in 2005 on 41st Street across from the Western Mall. The restaurant lost its lease in 2016 and was closed for eight months before reopening on Garfield Avenue.
Wisaal, who serves as the chef, prepares South Asian dishes such as kabob, biryani, khorma and other entrees with chicken, beef, lamb and fish, along with several vegetarian options. He also sells handmade carpets made in Afghanistan and Iran, and said he plans to continue that business out of the restaurant’s future location.
His wife, Tamana, said they want to find a smaller space that’s more visible.
They joked that they hope it doesn’t take as long this time to find a new home.
Here are the restaurant’s hours through March 10: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, and 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
