Went to have dinner...found it moved to 2424 Dempster. Went again on Sunday July 9th at midday and found it was closed. Lost a favorite close-by restaurant in Skokie, but Evanstonians will be happy! Looks bigger from outside.

My daughter introduced me to Kabul House. I've always found the food good and staff very friendly, sorry they've moved from Skokie to Evanston but will visit them at their new location.
