A favorite in Sunnyvale, I bring visitors who enjoy Afghan food to Kabuls. Their lamb dishes are delicious and always satisfying. They have a very nice selection of main courses. Service has always been great. It's conveniently located on a busy street with plenty of parking. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Also the Mantu (lamb dumplings) is wonderful- great appetizer but also a nice entree. I love the pallaw seasoned rice as well as the... More

Was in Sunnyvale for a night, and sought out Kabul Afghan Cuisine for dinner thanks to its TA reviews. Afghan food is one of the world's great cuisine. The dinner was excellent, traditional soup, char-broiled lamb, with salad and delicious rice. Very good service too. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday evening, glad I called about 90 minutes in... More

Made the choice to meet friends here for lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews, which I found quite representative after discounting some of the overly enthusiastic ones and a couple of the real negative ones. The ambiance is very pleasant with nice wall furnishings representative of Afghanistan. Table furnishings were nice and include white table clothes. The service was great as... More

We keep going back to Kabul. The lamb is so tender and not greasy . The rise is fluffy and light. Eggplant and pumpkin side dish are our favorite.

This restaurant have been in business for a very long time and constantly keeps good quality of food and service. The menu offers quite a variety of selections and the portions are quite generous. A restaurant you can always count on getting plenty of good food, good value for the money.

This place works - it has worked for many years. Perfect lamb and chicken kabobs. Perfect pumpkin and spinach. The only thing I would change is to provide a slightly more interesting and larger salad.

So my friends and I are on a mission to try out ethnic food every week, and it happened to be Afghan food this week. To be honest, I'm not extremely familiar with middle eastern food (unless you count food trucks in NYC) but hey it was pretty good. Appetiser: Mantu - Reminded me a lot of Chinese dumplings except...
