Hard to find better Afghan food than this place

I having been going to this place for some years. The food is always delicious, consistent, and satisfying portions make it worth the hefty price. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. The pumkin with meatsauce is incredible. The dumplings are really nice too. If you like ethinc food you... read more

Kabul just opened in one of the new developments in downtown Sunnyvale. I had never been to the previous location, but have made Dish Dash and House of Kebabs regular destinations since moving to the area about 7 years ago. The menu was similar, and the food was similarly excellent to Dish Dash. While busy, the restaurant felt less crowded... More

This restaurant has recently moved from El Camino Real (next to Grand Hotel) to Washington Avenue. I visited the restaurant for an early lunch. It got very crowded by noon. I had the lamb kebabs and salad and found the meat tender and cooked as requested, medium rare. Large portion and quite adequate for a large appetite!

Nice place to eat, i had Afgani food for the first time here and it was pretty good. Although there are not many choices for vegetarians and i didn't even expected that, but even with small set of choices, its definitely worth visiting.

This is a new location for this restaurant and it is very nicely decorated. The food is simply wonderful. The lamb kebabs were simply divine and there were lots of meet on them. I went with a group of people and we al were completely full after our meals and all were very happy. The service was good too.

Really great food. Afghani kebabs are just great. The side dishes were excellent. Truly enjoyable experience I will come again. The portions are too big for one person and the only downside is a limited choice of deserts. I would recommend this place.
