Really nice experience. I ordered the vegetarian platter with four types of veggies and a giant plate of rice. My friend had shrimp kabobs, the shrimp were HUGE. The service was great, they even gave us complimentary soup. The food was plated beautifully and service was quick.

We visit this restaurant frequently. It's good for any occasions: small and big. The atmosphere is cozy and unique. Food is excellent. The only negative thing is I wish their waitresses would be a bit faster to serve. Try it!

Been eating Afghan food (when available) for more than 30 years at great restaurants all over Kabul House is right up there with the best-- the soup was spot on, the dumplings perfect, the kebabs exquisite. Fast, friendly service-- Sorry, what's not to like? The portions were good, and I expected to bring some home. I wasn't disappointed in that... More
