Food is really good, I had the sautéed Pumpkin with Challaw, it's always very good. All the lamb courses are also great. The staff is excellent and very attentive, no long wait. The servings are large so I never get to the desert.

We have been going here consistently for over 20 years. It's usually awesome, but we noticed the last couple of times the food has been overly salted. Hopefully its just a new cook and can be corrected, otherwise it will not be the same and we will not be continuing the next 20.

We ordered 2 plates: look was terrible taste was ok for my wife and good for me but not outstanding. The meat were spiced correctly and plates was large. The price was too high for what you get.

This was my first time in this new location of Kabul. I went with friends who are non-vegetarians, and we all found great food choices. For vegetarians, just order the veggie plate, as it's really hard to choose only one or two of the veggie dishes, and they are all awesome. Get the Afghan tea too. House wine was ok.... More

Have you ever been to a restaurant where it is so good that you just can't bring yourself to order something different from the menu? Well, this is such a place. The Aushak (appetizer) and ANY of the Combination Shish-Kabobs are SOOOO good. I have eaten here about 10 or 12 times and each time it has been 5 stars.

We've been going to Kabul since the week it opened nearly 30 years ago. Fantastic kabobs, vegetable dishes, and stews. It is a family favorite and a hit with all our visitors, even for less adventurous eaters.

We had a delicious Afghan dinner at this restaurant. Their new location is very nice, very near "downtown" Sunnyvale and various other restaurants, coffee houses and bars. We shared the Qabili Pallaw lamb dish, along with the Vegetarian Platter that included three different vegetarian dishes, all delicious and plentiful. The prices were very reasonable, and with tea, tax and tip,... More

Great Afghan cuisine, good service and nice atmosphere. Be sure to ask for their hot garnish. The Aush soup is also fabulous

I love middle eastern food and mediterranean food and Kabul doesn't disappoint. I like coming here with large groups because they have round tables that make conversation easy. The food is very good too. I usually order some sort of lamb or pumpkin dish. The dishes come with rice on the side and bread. I always have leftovers to take... More
