In the early hours of September 20, an electrical fire ripped through the Afghani restaurant Ariana. The Department of Health posted a condemnation notice on the front door of the Tarzana-based business, whose dark windows are still smudged with smoke.

According to the owner’s son, Ahmed Hamidi, the September fire started at 5 a.m., with the majority of the damage ravaging the front counter, but extending all the way to the exterior. Thankfully, no employees were hurt.

Hamidi would not commit to a reopening date, and noted that that the repair process will take time adding, “Customers keep going to nearby businesses and ask when Ariana will reopen. We don’t have a date yet, but thank everyone for their patience and loyalty.”
