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

We really enjoy this place. Have been a number of times and always enjoy the food. Be sure to get the pumpkin side dish. I usually get one of the kabobs but everything we have tried was yummy. What we enjoy is that the dishes are rich in flavor and spice but without the heat of other cuisines. We will... More

The service is incredible from the moment you are greeted until departure from the restaurant. We were never ignored by any person on the staff. They re-filled water without asking, gave suggestions on how to be adventurous by combining two desserts to eat really authentic style Afghan food and checked that we enjoyed our entrees, without being over-bearing. Every person... More

This place has been here for years. They will be moving soon, but I am sure all the customers will follow them since it is hard to find food this good. Nice service too.

One person in our party was a frequent visitor to Kabul Afghan Cuisine. He was elected to order a couple of appetizers and several main courses which we then ate family style, enjoying each dish. The menu had a wide variety of selections that were reasonably priced. The waiter took us under his wing and provided great, but not intrusive,... More

You should book ahead for this restaurant. The service is great. The lady in charge (I think her name is Trina), was friendly and attentive and quick and professional. The food was great; special mention to the delicately flavoured rice and the succulent lamb chops. The baklava is said to be fab but I was too full to try it.... More

We've eaten here regularly for more than 10 years. The food has always been good, perhaps a few minor ups and downs but over 10 years that seems quite reasonable to me. It has been getting quite busy on weekend nights. If you want a quieter atmosphere go on a weeknight. Meals are a tad too large for lunchtime consumption,... More
