We googled and found this place. Food had no iranian flavor. The manue is a combination of iranian pakistan dishes, none of which were acceptable. Kabul is good for American customers not for us.

My son and I absolutely enjoyed our meal here. The pricing is very fair, the service excellent and the meals are prepared wonderfully. Everything tasted fresh, the spicing was outstanding and the atmosphere clean and neat. There is no bar however BYOB. I would highly recommend dining here.

One of our favorites is moving closer to us. Kabul moving from downtown Skokie to west Evanston on Dempster likely by the beginning of Dec 2016. Mantoo had wonderful flavor. Murgh was delightful, how do they keep the chicken so moist and tender? My wife loved the soup. And healthy as well...

If I have to review traditional food what we had for a dinner will be the high five, 5 stars. Whatever we ordered was delicious. Like a lot a "Kadu" as appertizer and Mahi as a main entree. As a table we shared "Boranee Banjan" and "Mantoo". Everybody enjoyed "Murgh". On "Desert menu" some items are missing like Afghan ice... More

We shared two appetizers, soup, and a main dish. Everything was fantastic. The service was good even though they were very busy. Will definitely go back. Total bill was $30 plus tip. So very economical for food this good. Really like the kadu appetizer. It's slightly sweet and would do just as well as a light dessert.

Right by my house, very nice restaurant so you can have a good time eating out. The food is fresh, and very authentic. A little pricey but would def recommend for tourists.

My friend and I were near Skokie and in the mood for something different. I hopped on TripAdvisor and Kabul House was listed as the best place in Skokie- we agree! Neither of us had ever tried Afghan food, but I'm dying to go back! It was crowded but we lucked out and got a tiny table for two. The... More

Wonderful food and fantastic staff! We went to dinner here with a couple of friends and had an excellent experience! We have tried a variety of middle eastern food in the past, but not had the chance to try Afghan food. We had been missing out! The rice was fantastically flavored as was the lamb. A must have here is... More
