I've only had Afghan food only two other times in my life and each time I have been impressed with the delicious tastes and textures. This place stands out at being one of the best in recent memory. Wow. So good. The Kadu was simply and unexpectedly wonderful. Sure the mix of lamb and chicken kabobs were moist, tender and... More

We had lunch at Kabul Afghan Cuisine and it was delicious. We had the Chef's Platter and Sabsi Challaw (lamb and spinach). All dishes were wonderfully spiced and very tasty. I wished I lived in the area because I could eat at this restaurant weekly.

Recently we ordered take-out food from Kabul and enjoyed it very much. The location is great--easy to get to and the restaurant is quite large so would be good for large groups. One of the highlights was lamb and eggplant. Excellent dish. I'm looking forward to returning and eating in the restaurant itself.

I've been to Kabul several times and the food is always good. I recently went to their new location downtown. The atmosphere is a step up from the previous location and the service was excellent. Kabul is the only place I've had Afghani food. The kabobs are similar to Iranian/Persian cuisine and the dishes with sauces are somewhat similar to... More

Kabul moved to downtown Sunnyvale. It's in a larger, lighter location just several blocks from Old Murphy St. Parking structure just across the street. A block from Caltrain station and buses as well. Salads, rice, spinach, squash, eggplant dishes for vegans. Plenty of meat options for non-vegans.

Excellent kebabs. Chicken, lamb, beef or salmon. Or get a combination. And you can get lamb loin chops on a skewer as well. We enjoy getting the "Kadu" as a side dish which is a type of roasted pumpkin, naturally a little sweet and goes well with most dishes.

I've loved going to Kabul's for business dinners. They have nice sized tables for large groups, the food is absolutely wonderful, and the service has been pretty good. They did have trouble with doing separate checks for 8 people -- we had to explain what to do. I especially like the seafood kabob, and the pumpkin dish. I understand it... More

I having been going to this place for some years. The food is always delicious, consistent, and satisfying portions make it worth the hefty price. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. The pumkin with meatsauce is incredible. The dumplings are really nice too. If you like ethinc food you need to come here and check it... More

Kabul just opened in one of the new developments in downtown Sunnyvale. I had never been to the previous location, but have made Dish Dash and House of Kebabs regular destinations since moving to the area about 7 years ago. The menu was similar, and the food was similarly excellent to Dish Dash. While busy, the restaurant felt less crowded... More
