Having never had Afghan cuisine we thought we'd try this restaurant. The food was amazing! Great tasting, large portions, great presentation, very good value for money. The service was average. Server wasn't rude, just indifferent. Would have been great to hear about how the food was cooked, the ingredients used, etc., but none of that was forthcoming. Recommended but don't... More

Afghan Kabob Palace was a gem. Despite the fact that there was only one car in the parking lot at 7pm on a Thursday evening, we trusted that Trip Advisor would not steer us wrong and they didn't. The restaurant did not serve beer or wine so we brought our own. The Bolanee Gandana was amazing...light pastry filled with a... More

My wife and I come to this restaurant all the time. Food is good, and we enjoy the buffet as well. The food it all reasonably priced, and the portions are huge. I also like the great service.

Stopped by for the lunch buffet after driving past many times. Service was asking how many in the party, leaving a pitcher of ice water at the table and dropping off the check. The buffet had only a few items that were only alright and much less tasty than any other of the many Afghan places I have eaten in.... More

Not a bad at all. We had a group dinner and kebab tastes good though the service was not great. Maybe they could have done better if was not very busy

My husband and I have been to AKP several times. A wonderful place for dinner before Heritage plays, or JPJ event. We usually get the fixed dinner for 2. A 4 course dinner with dessert and great coffee. Their rice is to die for, almost floats off the plate. We are planning our next visit.

Huge menu - our main problem was deciding what to get. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. Highly recommended.

This was the second time that I have stopped at this restaurant and both times have been surprised by the quality of the food. I would recommend the combo #4 with the butternut squash. I will return here in the future if my travels take me back that way.

The Afghan Kabob Palace delivers consistently on what we would consider to be a perfect meal. While this is admittedly a bold statement, let me tell you about a few of our highlights: KADU: You will see this butternut squash on the menu in a few different places - eat it immediately! The sauce and spicing is remarkable, and always... More
