Great place

We landed up here since we didn't get a table at the nearby indo Chinese restaurant. This turned out to be great as well. Their delectable array of meats, the juicy portions, the mouth watering aroma, all worked wonder for our senses. We had lamb seekh kababs and a chicken gravy item. We had a few... read more

It's been over 15 years since I was last here. The old location is now an Indian restaurant (and still says Kabul on a small sign hanging by the door). The new location must have lost the original chef(s) and maybe the recipes. The appetizers/side dishes (like sabsi and mantu) were still good but the shish leek (now called karaie)... More

We dine at this restaurant for years. As couples, with family and with large group of friends. Through out the years the food is awesome and retain its great tast and value. The service is excellent. I love their vegetable plater, all their meats are yummy and I prefer the 'brown' rice. Highly recommended for lunch and dinner

Nine adults, one teenager. We were seated at a large round table, which was perfect and appreciated. The entrees were high class Afghan cuisine: many lamb dishes and various skewered dishes. Service was good; wine and beer selections were good enough. The restaurant is in a relatively new location (a few months) so is new and bright -- also appreciated.... More

Very good kebabs though a little salty. I had the combo, lamb and chicken with rice and bread. It was way more food than I should've eaten. It was unique food and a very nice space.

recommended by a Sunnyvale local six of us desended early one evening after work. Most of us chose Kabuls Kombination Kabab with chicken and lamb, with sides of Sabsi - those that like Indian Sag Ghost should choose this - and Kadu, a pumpkin based dish that is very much worth trying. I cannot remember the other two's choices but... More
