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

Great service, great food, the whole family enjoyed. We will return for sure. Eggplants are a must. Skew are very yummy and so is the spicy-sweet rice dish.

I was disappointed as the food was not fresh although bit expensive. It was hot but probably with leftover food from previous day.

After the Afghan House closed, a friend introduced us to "Kabul Afghan Cuisine" in Sunnyvale. A little hard to find in the back of a small shopping center off El Camino, but well worth the effort. We had the KABAB-E-CHUPAN, marinated lamb loin chops, charbroiled on a skewer, and served on a bed of pallaw rice. The server expertly removed... More

The food is good, might be excellent if cooked based on new and modern style as less salt and less than well done. Service is nice , not professional. Overall is a good deal.

My second wife and I use Entertainment.com and Restaurant.com coupons and other discount coupons every chance we get -one of the legacies of my first wife -me always married to a coupon lady! However Kabul doesn't have discount coupons, and they aren't any good on holidays anyways. We always go to Kabul on major holidays, especially Valentine's night, just like... More
