Reviews for Lapis

The food is ok. At least the pickup. it's probably better when you eat there. My 1 start is because I went out of my way to place an order from their website (so they didn't pay for Grubhub fees), tipped generously even tho it was a pickup and paid from their website. When I got home I realized they didn't include one of the dishes. When I called the manager I pulled the receipt and saw they charged me $12 extra to help employees during Covid. I don't have a problem full review

This place is so good, picture an upscale tapas twist on Afghan. Decor and ambience are AMAZING, and well before DC started blossoming into a decent restaurant city. I kinda don’t wanna leave a review but it’s already so jam-packed every night one more review of its awesomeness won’t hurt my reservation chances. Haha. So pleased to watch this place thrive for decades, from back in the “Napoleon” days until now.

We ordered Lapis for pickup (in the dark COVID times). We got the aushak and the beef mantoo, both were not only delicious dumplings but came covered in a a delicious split pea/ground beef/yogurt concoction that was an amazing accompaniment. We ordered qabuli palow, which was very similar to Uzbek plov. The lamb was amazing, slow cooked and tender, falling apart with just the touch of a fork. The dish is filling, and they give you a lot of it, it's amazing. We had the full review
