Great food!!

Wonderful food and service. Believe they moved locations which is a bit disappointing guven that it was so easy to park in the parking lot off El Camino...now you have to search near Murphy Street. That's ok...they're worth tracking down!

Always great food here. I usually order and take home as it's so popular I don't have to worry about getting a table. Love the Kadu!

The blend of spices in the food at Kabul is exceptional. Aush is a favorite with rich, deep tasting broth filled with vegetables, noodles and a dollop of yogurt and meat sauce. The kababs are delicious and egetarian dishes are just as rich. My mother's favorite was the salmon. The wait staff is professional and efficient.

I had dinner with a friend here one evening. The food is good and you can eat great Kababs with bread and rice. My friend Bill liked the Tea. V busy place. You may have to wait so better call and reserve your table.

It's quite difficult to get a place if you went without a prior reservation, it's quite busy even during the week. On a couple of occasions, I've had to do a takeaway instead. But the food is fantastic and every time I've been here I have tried different dishes. Each one of them have been equally good. One of my... More

I am rating Kabul's as excellent, which these days is a rare event. Value to quality in food and service is very much above standard. While eating my lamb chop kabobs I was thinking about what entree I'll order on our next visit, which hopefully will be soon. I believe they are moving to another Sunnyvale location this summer ('15)... More

It's not a huge restaurant so make reservations especially if you have a large party. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive (even for our large group of 12), filled our waters before they got empty, and the food was reasonably quick for a full restaurant. Food was delicious, not too sour as some Mediterranean food can be, and good... More

Kabul is on my shortlist for places for quality sit-down restaurant food in the neighborhood. I've only been to about three Afghan restaurants in the world (actually all nearby). None have disappointed, but this one has set the standard.

Food is good. Place for superpacked but the service is still acceptable. They are moving to a new location soon so just check that before you go.

I heartily recommend Kabul. It's a lovely experience from the minute walk in. The ambience is warm and inviting. There really is no noise level. It's quiet enough to engage in conversations, a rarity these days. The tables are far enough apart that you don't feel crowded or intruded upon. The staff is attentive and accommodating. The service is excellent.... More
