Delicious and good value.

Tucked away in the centre of Rouen, this small restaurant is worth finding. Delicious food, related to Indian but subtly different, a little spice and lots of flavour.

We were excited to visit Kaboul after the great reviews here on TripAdvisor. Ordered 2 appetizers and 4 main courses. Not only were they all bland (we weren't expecting particularly spicy food), but all the food tasted more or less the same. Compared to the average French food, this certainly has a 'different' flavor, but nothing spectacular or even average.... More

The lady at the front desk of our hotel was nice enough to call this restaurant about 2 hours before we ate to set a reservation. When we arrived, the place was pretty empty but it was early. The woman who greeted us did not seem very friendly but I must give the benefit to her that we don't speak... More

Having had a great meal there last year we made Rouen a destination on our return journey to the UK to repeat the experience. We shouldn't have bothered! The restaurant was strangely quiet for one with such a high rating. The starters were OK but the main courses were very small. Two tiny pieces of chicken in a tomato sauce... More

This is a really lovely little restaurant in the back streets of Rouen. It is very reasonably priced, and the food is delicious! The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially in helping me to pronounce the names of the food! The room is very nicely decorated and has a great atmosphere for couples or families. I would thoroughly recommend... More

I had never tried Afghan food before this visit and was pleasantly surprised. The food was mild, yet flavoursome (such as fragrant rice, and rich garlic and tomato sauces). Every dish had character; even the Kawa tea was flavaoured with almonds and cardomom and other spices. I recommend the gobajaman (?) for dessert. However what really stood out for us... More

We visited Kaboul tonight, the restaurant was pretty empty, not a good sign. The owner was pleasant & helpful. The disappointment was the food. Small portions and not very tasty. I disappointed. To think that it was rated above Gill, is somewhat ridicules.

I ate here twice on a recent visit, largely because of Tripadvisor reviews. I concur with everything said about the friendly service and very good food. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. This is not a restaurant for those seeking a fiery Nage or Vindaloo (my normal choices in an Indian restaurant). Flavours are subtle and delicate, not remotely... More

There is nothing wrong with this restaurant. It is clean, atmospheric and the service was OK. However, I was disappointed. I don't really know what I expected, but whatever it was I didn't find it here. I am a fan of spiced food and eat a lot of what we English term 'Indian' food. Perhaps that is what I was... More
