The restaurant had moved to a new location. Its a nicer place than the previous place. The have a big menu, the rice is very tasty and moist. My favorite dish is lamb with Eggplant in special sauce. Their meals come with salad and bread.

This is a very good Afghan/Persian style restaurant. The place has a nice atmosphere with a middle-eastern/Indian decor, with a nice buzz of the guests conversations (not bothering, just giving character to the place). The service is quick and efficient and there is always someone to fill-up your water glass or place the course gravy on the table. They have... More

Food is average, shish-kabob. Not that flavorful. I thought the prices on the menu is about 15% higher than some other similar restaurants. Given the location and food selection, it's a bit over priced

Excellent food - great service - lamb and chicken combination on skewers are the best! Also, the salmon and shrimp on skewers if you want to go meatless. All the appetizers are good - mantu and the sambosa's - yum

The food is great - Disdain from a waiter....not so great. This was the 1st time it happened but it was enough for me to say there are other Afghani restaurants around. And I don't pay good money to be dismissed by the male watistaff with a sneer because a man wants served next to me. I used to go... More

My daughter and I had never experienced Afghan cuisine so we decided to give it a go. My daughter had the Kabab-E-Murgh (Chicken skewers) and I had the Kabul's Combo Kabab (Chicken and Beef) skewers. Both were served with Pallaw. Both dishes were delicious and the portions HUGE. My daughter and I could have easily shared one dish and still... More

I had some sort of lamb in minced spinach and garlic over rice and it was amazing, I had never had Afghan food before but always willing to try new things and I was impressed. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I think the lighting was a bit too low in the restaurant and I don't think... More

It's a fabulous place. I especially like the pumpkin dish (the meat version is better than the vegetarian one, but both are good), and I don't think I've had a lousy or mediocre meal there ever. We've been several times, and will certainly be back.
