This is a great place to go to grab a quick bite to eat that taste good, all for an affordable price! The menu is extensive, and offers many mediterranean/Afghani/Middle Eastern dishes to choose from. There is also an all-you-can-eat buffet. When I come, I...More

Love this place! I regularly stop for the chicken kabob salad. Large serving of grilled chicken, salad, a side dish (I typically chose stewed egg plant, spinach or chickpeas) and a giant naan. Food is freshly prepared once order is placed. Staff is friendly and...More

We have been coming here for years for falafel platters, kabobs, and the like. We find the food to be great, the service to be reliable, and the value to be excellent.

More than just a meal, it's a showcase for a beautiful selection of Persian rugs and carpets. The carpets are changed out every few months, however the food is authentic and consistently good. Love the fresh made flat bread.

Having diner in many Afghan restaurants and also having been to Afghanistan, I can say with some certainty that this place does not come across as Afghani. Don't get me wrong. The food is good, but it is not Afghan except for a very few...More

As others have noted, this place is under new management and is now known as Kabob Express II (Kabob Express I is in Centerville, VA), although at this writing the old Kabul Kabob outside sign remains. The new management improved the previously tatty decor, raised...More

So this is my third review of this place. It's gone from excellent to terrible back to excellent again. New ownership obviously has put effort into getting things up and running again, with attentive counter staff, new decor, and amazing food. In addition to regular...More
