About the restaurant Darah Afghaans Restaurant

Darah is het vierde familierestaurant dat in mei 2017 is opgericht door de familie Alizadah. Vanaf januari 2010 ontvangen zij hun gasten met veel liefde en plezier in restaurant Sarban in Tilburg. Het culinaire succes heeft zich ondertussen uitgebreid naar Den Bosch (restaurant Zaher, 2013) en Waalwijk (restaurant Attan, 2014). Sinds 2016 kun je door cateringbedrijf Saaz ook je feesten en partijen laten verzorgen.

Betekenis Darah
Darah verwijst naar de vruchtbare grond tussen de voet van de berg en de rivier. De grond is bij uitstek geschikt voor het verbouwen van diverse gewassen omdat dit veel voedingsstoffen bevat.
In elk restaurant van de familie Alizadah, wacht je een hartelijke ontvangst. Persoonlijke aandacht en vriendelijkheid zijn diepgeworteld in de Afghaanse cultuur. De gastheren en gastvrouwen staan open voor al jouw vragen.

Hart voor de maatschappij
Ze voelen zich maatschappelijk erg betrokken bij hun woon- en werkomgeving en streven ernaar om op verschillende manieren de mensen om zich heen te helpen. Tot op heden is het ze gelukt om op de volgende manieren een kleine bijdrage te leveren;
• Ze nemen bewust alleenstaande minderjarige asielzoekers aan als personeel om hen een kans te bieden op een succesvolle toekomst in Nederland. In het restaurant proberen ze zoveel mogelijk Nederlands te spreken. Dit om de integratie te bevorderen.
• Ze stellen wekelijks een tafel beschikbaar aan Quiet500 members. Dat zijn Tilburgse gezinnen die onder de armoedegrens leven.
• Als actief lid van het Elftal tegen Armoede proberen ze met verschillende projecten het percentage van de mensen die onder de armoedegrens leven te verlagen.
• Via het bestuur van de stichting Samen Doen proberen ze nieuwkomers en huidige inwoners van Tilburg met elkaar te verbinden. Ook creëren ze werkgelegenheid voor de nieuwkomers.
• Ze nemen deel aan verschillende veilingen, waarvan de opbrengst vaak gaat naar de ouderen in de stad.

Would give it an 8. Dishes were really good and tasteful, ambiance is not too special but okay. Service was good, explanatory and friendly. Bit expensive, but understandable concerning how it all is presented and prepared.

I stayed there very, very well. Atmosphere of a high-level restaurant, but friendly as a trattoria.
Service was very present and careful, but not "oppressive".
We tried - following their suggestions - a "surprise dinner", with typical afghani food, and everything was excellent, and the waiter explained us every food.
Very good price/quality rate.

I expected to much since they are #2 on tripadvisor. They are very welcoming, service is fine, food is really good. But somehow i expected an extra toutch (like Karel the 5th they bring you tiny little special bites in between the courses). It was 8/10 but didnt feel like 10/10. Atmosphere was good, friendly people and quite quick service.

everything seems to be pre-cooked and not fresh. Vegetables were weak. Meat quality not good. Undefined pieces with a lot of fat.
Very loud

whilst none of the individual dishes really had the ‘wow’ factor, it was a great experience trying a very different meal, based on the overall experience I’m pleased I visited. Service was friendly enough without being overly attentive. House wines were bad - stick to the beer!

First time we have tried Afghan food and it was delicious. We had the surprise menu, which was plenty of food and a great way to sample a range of dishes. The meat was so tender and the spices were subtle and tasty - the special rfice dish was amazing. It was really busy the night we went but the staff still took time to explain each of the dishes to us. We definitely recommend Dahar’s.

The only issue is that they don’t have an english menu. It’s ashtonishing after people have commented it here on tripadvisor! Even a small print-out sheet would be adequate. However, food was absolutely delicious, great flavours and excellent service!

Delicious food, they have a variety platter for people unfamiliar with Afghan cuisine which is a nice way to learn about the dishes. Staff is very friendly and seems genuinely excited to tell you about the different dishes. Prices were very reasonable, especially for a place in the middle of Utrecht's center. Definitely one of my new go-to places.
