The food is great - Disdain from a waiter....not so great. This was the 1st time it happened but it was enough for me to say there are other Afghani restaurants around. And I don't pay good money to be dismissed by the male watistaff with a sneer because a man wants served next to me. I used to go... More

My daughter and I had never experienced Afghan cuisine so we decided to give it a go. My daughter had the Kabab-E-Murgh (Chicken skewers) and I had the Kabul's Combo Kabab (Chicken and Beef) skewers. Both were served with Pallaw. Both dishes were delicious and the portions HUGE. My daughter and I could have easily shared one dish and still... More

I had some sort of lamb in minced spinach and garlic over rice and it was amazing, I had never had Afghan food before but always willing to try new things and I was impressed. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I think the lighting was a bit too low in the restaurant and I don't think... More

It's a fabulous place. I especially like the pumpkin dish (the meat version is better than the vegetarian one, but both are good), and I don't think I've had a lousy or mediocre meal there ever. We've been several times, and will certainly be back.

We are always on the hunt for unusual cuisines. Afghan counts as that for us. It isn't really that different than other near eastern food, Kabobs, rice, etc. All the food we ordered was quite good. The rack of lamb, recommended by a chatty neighbor table was really awesome. Lamb can so quickly be over cooked or just be gamey.... More

They served the same plate twice with hair on it! We went to this place for my daughter's birthday dinner on 6/26. My daughter ordered a Kabab-E-Mahe. When she got her order, she noticed there was a long hair with curl at end of hair on the salmon. She showed it to the waiter, waiter removed the dish and brought... More

Came here with my husband, brother in law and a friend. The staff was extremely nice. The NBA finals were on and they allowed us to change the channel and even switch tables to get a better view. We ordered the $30 lamb (which could've been bigger but was delicious), the appetizer entree which has 3 types of appetizers and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We came on a Friday night but we were seated quickly at our reserved time. I would definitely come back here again.

first time we have visited, the restaurant is modern, spacious, very clean. The staff are smartly dressed shirts and ties, relaxed and friendly. The food was excellent well presented, and really good value. They serve wine and beer, unfortunately no cocktails. will definitely go again

I have always loved Kabul and their new location is great. It weekend for couples or big groups. You must have the pumpkin side dish, I love the lamb dish with rice, carrots and raisins
