To review, this is such a wonderful family-run joint where we've shared an absurd number of fabulous meals (and I suspect their accounting books include a line item specifically for M_L's carryout orders). The list of favorite dishes is absurdly long -- the rich Lamb Mantoo, the intensely herbacious Chicken Malai Boti, the light and flavorful Biryanis, the once off but back on again Gulpi, the intense and meaty Afghani Kofta, the Sherpeera that showed up at the PHXfn potluck... and many more.
Some praise for Khyber Halal since FNA 2013:

It's such a gem of a place, and so easy to take for granted. Let's not do that. Show some love in this nomination thread so we can get Khyber Halal approved for 2014 as well.cactuschowdah wrote:We went last night with the kids after a long time away, and it is as good as ever ... Just amazing food they are turning out here.
