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.

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

Great Service, Quick, Appetizers are very delicious; especially the Bolani. This Rest has many Meat Dishes to choose from. and I have tasted the majority and they taste very good. Quality of the food is very consistent. However, this place has increased their prices due to demand and surging popularity :(

Really nice restaurant. Foods are very good. This Afghan Restaurant has some authentic dish and some dishes close to Indian foods. Basically Afghanistan was once part of India hundreds of years ago so foods are not so different. But has uniqueness. The restaurant is good. Ample space and of course foods are very tasty.

Thank Saitan
