Excellent new location; excellent food!

This new location is large and attractively decorated. There is on-street parking, but you can also use the city/Macy's lot about a block away. There is a full service bar with seats, altho' we did not see anyone sitting at the bar. The menu was extensive and being fans of Afgani food, we were very... read more

The food here was great and we enjoyed our meals. The meat and fish were perfectly cooked, so tender! The baklava was the best we've had south of Palo Alto. It always seemed busy; why did it close??

I've only had Afghan food only two other times in my life and each time I have been impressed with the delicious tastes and textures. This place stands out at being one of the best in recent memory. Wow. So good. The Kadu was simply and unexpectedly wonderful. Sure the mix of lamb and chicken kabobs were moist, tender and... More

We had lunch at Kabul Afghan Cuisine and it was delicious. We had the Chef's Platter and Sabsi Challaw (lamb and spinach). All dishes were wonderfully spiced and very tasty. I wished I lived in the area because I could eat at this restaurant weekly.

Recently we ordered take-out food from Kabul and enjoyed it very much. The location is great--easy to get to and the restaurant is quite large so would be good for large groups. One of the highlights was lamb and eggplant. Excellent dish. I'm looking forward to returning and eating in the restaurant itself.

I've been to Kabul several times and the food is always good. I recently went to their new location downtown. The atmosphere is a step up from the previous location and the service was excellent. Kabul is the only place I've had Afghani food. The kabobs are similar to Iranian/Persian cuisine and the dishes with sauces are somewhat similar to... More

Kabul moved to downtown Sunnyvale. It's in a larger, lighter location just several blocks from Old Murphy St. Parking structure just across the street. A block from Caltrain station and buses as well. Salads, rice, spinach, squash, eggplant dishes for vegans. Plenty of meat options for non-vegans.

Excellent kebabs. Chicken, lamb, beef or salmon. Or get a combination. And you can get lamb loin chops on a skewer as well. We enjoy getting the "Kadu" as a side dish which is a type of roasted pumpkin, naturally a little sweet and goes well with most dishes.

I've loved going to Kabul's for business dinners. They have nice sized tables for large groups, the food is absolutely wonderful, and the service has been pretty good. They did have trouble with doing separate checks for 8 people -- we had to explain what to do. I especially like the seafood kabob, and the pumpkin dish. I understand it... More
