Helmand is an Afghani restaurant named after Afghanistan's longest and most important river. Located in East Cambridge, the Helmand Restaurant's dining room is flanked on one side by a small fireplace, and on the other by a woodburning oven, where the restaurant's famous flatbread is cooked.
A friend with extensive experience in Afghanistan described Helmand as "truly authentic Afghan cuisine.... well not quite. It is actually much better than the real deal. Better ingredients, together with excellent preparation and presentation. And a safer environment."
