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.

We usually get the salmon kabob with sabsi either in house or takeout. Their other dishes are equally good. Large servings, well prpared. This is our go to place and we have never been disappointed.

Kabul just moved to their new location slightly over a week ago. The new location was PACKED on a Sunday evening. Luckily, we had reservations or else we would have had to wait. The new place is very easy to find, one block off of Mathilda on Washington. The restaurant has lost some of its quiet small charm and is... More

Wonderful food and service. Believe they moved locations which is a bit disappointing guven that it was so easy to park in the parking lot off El Camino...now you have to search near Murphy Street. That's ok...they're worth tracking down!

Always great food here. I usually order and take home as it's so popular I don't have to worry about getting a table. Love the Kadu!

The blend of spices in the food at Kabul is exceptional. Aush is a favorite with rich, deep tasting broth filled with vegetables, noodles and a dollop of yogurt and meat sauce. The kababs are delicious and egetarian dishes are just as rich. My mother's favorite was the salmon. The wait staff is professional and efficient.

I had dinner with a friend here one evening. The food is good and you can eat great Kababs with bread and rice. My friend Bill liked the Tea. V busy place. You may have to wait so better call and reserve your table.
