Nice and different

Four of us shared starters and entrees and loved it all. Nice, different tastes and friendly service. And strangely flat and tasteless Coke. Would come again.

I have been eating at Kabul ever since it opened in Burlingame and it easily became my favorite. Everyone I have brought here has felt the same about the wonderful variety and delicious food. It has become our go to when entertaining out of town guest and family celebration. The food is always delicious and consistent especially the lamb dishes,... More

My beau and I were driving back from San Francisco and we decided to eat in Burlingame. I checked a few places that offered vegetarian plus meat dishes and we found two. Most restaurants don't take reservations for two so we took a chance on our own. We arrived and both had a 30 to 60 minutes wait. We were... More

My company gets lunch takeout from this restaurant every few weeks. Generally, the food is kind of greasy but not that bad. However, one time they got my order wrong and what they gave me instead was looked like boiled chunks of pumpkin. I asked if they could remake what I had ordered, and the lady said it would take...

Really great, authentic Afghan food, properly prepared and attractively served. Service is good -- attentive without being overbearing. This restaurant is usually quite full, so the locals must like this place. Close by street parking is generally available.

Kabul is in a prime location but we found the food to be uninspired - basic, without sufficient seasoning or culinary style to bring us back. Two of us visited on a Friday evening. The wait was short so we dropped off the list of a nearby restaurant to give Kabul a try. We were addressed quickly and efficiently at... More

I love this place and having been there 3 times in the last year, the quality of food and service is outstanding - the welcome was wonderful despite walking in to s packed restaurant without booking with 3 colleagues . A must for any visitor to this area and the whole of San Francisco area. I am much travelled and... More

I love eating different ethnic foods and had never been to an Afghanistan restaurant. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food was amazing. We got a lentil soup which had a great taste and then split a pumpkin dish and another with lamb and spinach. They were both seasoned perfectly. Easily our best meal while in San Francisco

Lively, interesting and tasty cuisine. Similar to Indian and Lebanese, but more shish kabobs, veal, lamb and other dishes and spices.

When my girlfriend invited me to go here for dinner I wasn't sure what to expect since I never had Afghan food. I ordered the chicken kebab served with brown rice and nan bread-the bread was fluffy and lighter than Indian nan bread: the rice pilaf was very good too--better than any brown rice pilaf that I had before--the chicken...
