I have stopped here on my last 3 trips. The recipe is not rocket science, just very good Afghan cuisine, great price and a very comfortable environment to sit with colleagues eat and discuss; tables are not to close to each other and you have room to sit comfortably.

I think I expected grilled kebabs on skewers, which they had, but they had do much more that was wonderful. I've been in California and Nevada for two weeks and this was the best meal we had. The dishes topped with yogurt and ground lamb were the best. The only arguments at the table were about which dish was best.... More

On a recent trip to the San Francisco area we decided to try the Kabul Afghan Restaurant in Burlingame. We made reservations for four on a Sunday evening. When we arrived it was not too busy but it gradually picked up so reservations are probably advisable. Appetizers were inexpensive, but fairly small. We sampled the Mantoo (ground lamb filled dumplings)... More

We have been coming here for 5 years and the food is very good - especially the pumpkin with yogurt and meat sauce! The seasonings are perfect! I would recommend you order at least two! The rest of the menu is also very good. I especially like the chicken and lamb stews. Very nice spices and vegetables!

While traveling in the area, we went to Kabul for dinner with some friends who live in Burlingame. They chose it and I didn't know anything about the restaurant or Afghan food before stepping in the door. It exceeded all my expectations. My wife and I are vegetarian and they have plenty of options for us. The meat eaters in... More

We stayed in Burlingame for a night before flying out of SFO after a week long stint in the Bay area. Found this restaurant on TA and gave it a try. WOW! Simply put, Kabul Afghan serves up truly delicious kabobs. We ordered family-style and everyone loved the food, including all 3 of my young children. As mentioned in other... More

Tried this place based on reviews and my interest in trying this unusual cuisine. I can said it lives up to its reputation. Good vegetarian selections to boot. Couple of cautionary notes. Ask for the bread if you like it with your salad which comes with the entree otherwise the bread comes with the meal. The road that leads to... More

You have to try the pumpkin!!!!!!!!!! Out of this world...great place and good enviroment. The kabobs and lamb is also another great choice. Best to get reservations before as the place gets full on a regular basis.

Casual dining, with both exotic and fairly straight forward dishes. I enjoyed the various appetizers our party shared, and the lamb was very flavorful. Their dessert specialty is baklava which is loaded with pistachios, somewhat different from the Lebanese baklava I've enjoyed in the past.
