“A must try”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

Amazing experience, This is an excellent restaurant, the service was more than impeccable, I rarely had a service so courteous and professional. We were five and tried several starters and main courses and all the food was excellent. You get a lot for your money. Magnificent atmosphere, beautiful decoration. Bravo

“Terrible customer service”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Bought a coupon on vie urbaine. The manager said they couldn't take any reservations on weekends but this was not indicated on the coupon when bought. It was clearly false advertisement on their part to sell more coupons. Money hungry place.

“Excellent meal, great service”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Had a very enjoyable meal with friends at Fenetre sur Kaboul. Modest menu but everything was very, very well done. Good selection of appetizers, some carry over into full meals. Great option was the sampler plate so that you can experience a variety of their dishes. Everything executed perfectly, service was very attentive and professional. Décor is tasteful and professionally done - great ambiance.

While only a couple of dishes were very spicy (at this is very subjective) you can request more or less hot to your taste. Bring your own wine is a great option for budget conscious diners.

Not to miss is the tea bar for after your meal. Huge selection of teas and a great place to continue the experience after dining - tea and dessert. A must have is the home-made vanilla ice cream with pistachios and rose water - absolutely superb.

Will definitely return and have no hesitation recommending Fenetre sur Kaboul to other diners. It's worth it!!

“Excellent BYOW Afghan restaurant”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

This was our first time in this new local restaurant.

The waiter promptly told us that the food was "like home" as his mother and sister (I recall) were taking care of the kitchen.

We ordered, as we always do, a bit of everything: soups (delicious Persian soup with yogurt), an appetizer of fried flat dough stuffed with potatoes. Do ask for the spicy sauces: there are some spicy pickled veggies that are great.

The bread was a little dry though.

The mains: I had the sample plate (did not regret it - the little meat patties were delicious) and my companion had a lamb dish (we were warned that it is a traditional boiled and baked lamb). A little dry, but tender. The accompanying rice is wonderful.

Dessert: not the usual rose-water pudding... Home-made pistachio ice-cream and cream rolls. Very nice.

The new decor is simple and clean and we actually were able to hear each other talk without shouting even though there was a large party of people close by.

Also, the restaurant it is a "bring your own wine".

Very good. Will definitely be going back.
