I enjoy Afghan food, but until I had Afghan Bistro I didn't realize what great Afghan food tasted like! The steak melted in your mouth and the chicken was perfectly seasoned. This isn't your typical "fast food" Afghan restaurant, Afghan Bistro is a true bistro that serves authentic Afghan dishes, and family owned and operated. Not only is the food... More

This was our first visit, and we were dining with another couple. We wanted a leisurely dinner, and although it was busy, the place never filled to capacity, so they let us stay as long as we wanted. It has a good selection of vegetarian dishes, and kebobs featuring chicken, lamb, or beef. Dinner entrees include a salad or vegetable... More

Great service and great selection of traditional Afghan foods. This is a place that you'll want to keep coming back to because of the variety of dishes. We take guests from out of the area here.

The service is top rate. The kabobs are always moist, delicious and generous. You have your choice of naan (served soft and hot) or basmati rice. We usually end up with both. Definitely recommend trying this place if you haven't yet!

I had eaten lamb twice before this--one time was good, the other time was horrible. This lamb was great. Their roasted pumpkin dish was enjoyable. Spices and dipping sauces were tasty. Clean environment, super service. Great dinner to celebrate our anniversary and great introduction to authentic Afghan food.

We found this place near our hotel. It was the only one open on July 4th weekend! It's a cozy place with amazing Afghan decor. It was really busy with a large family party. The service was very quick and the staff is very friendly. We started with fried eggplant with their bread which is massive. It was really yummy.... More

This was an excellent restaurant in every way. Very comfortable and interesting decor, great food and the best service we have experienced in a long time. We had six in our party including a 2 and a 3 year old. Our server was always there when we needed him and provided everything we needed. This included several extra items for... More

I have yet to actually dine in the restaurant, as I always get my food to go. Don't let the rundown-looking outside of the building fool you. The inside of the restaurant looks clean, maybe a little outdated in the decor department. Every time I go I love looking at the very detailed model of an Afghan village near the... More

The prices at Afghan Kabob are more costly than are listed here on Trip Advisor. This site needs to be updated. The food was good.

Classic "can't judge a book by it's cover." From the outside, Afghan Kabob Restaurant looks pretty dingy. Given this expectation, it is a pleasant surprise when one enters, as it quite bright and nice. This was our first experience with Afghan food, so I have no foundation upon which to base my review. However, I can say that I enjoyed... More
