Enjoyed a family meal with extended family. The service staff were very helpful in selecting foods for our group. All the food selections were fantastic, especially the skewered lamb.

Kabul is an institution in San Carlos. Authentic Afghan cuisine, terrific ambience, appetizers and mains. Don't forget dessert! Absolutely the best lamb I've ever been served in a restaurant -- spiced and cooked to perfection, consistently.
