Kabul House consistently provides excellent food. Prices are average to above average but the quality of the menu items is worth it.

My colleague and I were in the area doing business, we wanted to try a different type of cuisine so we stopped by Kabul based on their high reviews. We were quickly greeted by the host. He recommended the vegetable platter which included (Spinach sauteed in garlic, onion and spices, Sweet baby pumpkin cooked with honey and onions then topped... More

The kabobs are their signature food. They used to have wonderful baklava, but I don't like their new twist which is adding syrup over it.

I've never been to Kabul but the food at this restaurant tastes amazing. I have had the chicken kabob, which the chicken is moist yet perfectly cooked. They serve this with rice and raisins and again excellent. They provide a local chutney which adds flavor and just the right amount of heat to the dishes. I'm not sure if they... More

Despite the title of my review, I'll go back and hope for better service because the food was THAT good. The Aushak and Mantoo appetizers were incredible - I wished I had ordered Mantoo as an entree. The gulpi (cooked cauliflower in tomato sauce) was also terrific. The waiter failed to bring us soup, which was disappointing, as the Aush-Rishta... More

Wanted something a little different but were wary from previous reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the staff was great. It was a tiny bit smokey but more of a nice fragrance from the kitchen. We ordered the dumplings appetizer and were all jockeying for who got the last one. For dinner my son ordered... More

We came for dinner and had never had Afghan food before. I don't know if all Afghan food is this good, but wow, we were impressed. All the food was well prepared and delicious. Our waiter was wonderful, very prompt and attentive service.

Phenomenal food, smaller portions for the price but a great locally owned spot! The soup is some of the best around and worth ordering on its own.

My boyfriend and I, along with 2 of our friends, went here on a lovely Sunday evening for dinner. Our friends had been here before and raved about the food, so we wanted to try it. The food IS fantastic! I loved every bite. I chose the lentil soup and it was very tasty. The other 3 diners had the... More
