We love the food at Kabul House. Very tasty meat dishes from perhaps the only Afghani restaurant in Chicagoland. The waiters are friendly and efficient. A bit loud sometimes but still a wonderful place to dine.

The food was delicious, and the decor was pretty with a touch of class. Our waiter was excellent, both willing and able to accommodate modifications to the menu items. The atmosphere was very international with diners of every race/ethnicity imaginable.
