We have eaten at Kabul House 3 times in the past year. The food is Afghan, the quality very good and the service excellent. One of those times we brought an ethnic dining group of over 20 people to the restaurant and the kitchen and staff provided hot food in a very timely fashion. Parking is on the street and available close to the restaurant.

I am not sure what the big deal is. The meat was undercooked, and bland. Not a good place for kids. Don't have kids menu. Don't have plastic cups. The rice with raisins was delicious.

We used to frequent their old location on Dempster near McCormick, and we were thrilled when they reopened in Skokie. Very tasty appetizers, and the kabobs are also very tasty. Really good food. Waitstaff not overly friendly, but they are efficient. We really enjoy eating here! Also, you can BYOB (corkage fee). We will continue to frequent Kabul House, and we're glad they're back! The only complaint...lose the television...it cheapens the place. Especially when I just want a quiet meal with my wife. In my humble opinion, the tv is a distraction.

Now located on Oakton in downtown Skokie, Kabul House remains a little known jewel of a restaurant on the North Shore. Interesting, delicious ethnic food, but not too overly for local tastes.

This place has to be Illinois most well kept secret. We have lived here for atleast 4 years and recently found out about it through word of mouth and since we did we have been there atleast twice a month even though it is around 20 miles out. The Qabli Palao and the kabobs are well worth the drive.
