Best Lamb in the Midwest for Dinner - Yum Chicken for Lunch

Samira is an outstanding bargain for the quality of the food, particularly the lamb dishes, though they also have chicken, shrimp, beef, and vegetarian dishes as well. I checked with the chef and they actually fly their lamb in from New Zealand. I usually get the lamb shish-kabob for dinner and it was better than any of the several Afghan restaurants I had tried in “Little Kabul” in Fremont, CA.
They also provide a spicy eggplant appetizer gratis as well as their homemade flat bread…warm and fresh. Another outstanding side dish is their marinated mushrooms. If you go during weekday lunchtime, they have one of the best lunch buffets, with excellent chicken, meatballs, salad, and even baklava for dessert!

Lamb Shish Kabob

Always tasty. The meat is mostly tender (I like mine rare) but once in a while is a little tough so I reduced the five star rating to four. It actually is mostly five star. The grilled flavor of the meat combined with their marinade is always outstanding.
