I give one star only for the chef and his food, the rest is awfully below zero. There was only one person in the entire restaurant to provide service to the customers. We had to wait for a long time once we arrived, then we...More

Came by early in the evening and was the only customer for a while. Had a good conversation about Afghanistan with the hostess/server. She recommended some delicious choices for appetizers and side dishes. Had hoped for some rose ice cream dessert, but they were sold...More

I used to like Kabul -- I love Afghani food -- but it has gone way downhill. We had a 6:15 res and told them we were going to a local theater after so please take our order. Order not taken until 6:45, We wanted...More

We walked in a few minutes after 7pm on a Friday night, and were the only diners in the restaurant. The hostess was pleasant, but there was another younger guy (waiter or something?) who spoke on his cell phone via speaker during our meal. Food...More

I'm normally very shy about trying new foods (I eat like a third grader, I'll be honest), but my husband was really wanting to try Afghan food. So, since I hadn't ever had it, I thought why not? It was delicious! I had the chicken...More

I very much wanted to give this restaurant a better ranking. My wife and I have always enjoyed Afghan food. However, almost everything we partook of (from the tea to kadu) were strangely flavorless. The lamb in saffron was oddly flat. They weren't busy when...More
