Have you ever been to a restaurant where it is so good that you just can't bring yourself to order something different from the menu? Well, this is such a place. The Aushak (appetizer) and ANY of the Combination Shish-Kabobs are SOOOO good. I have eaten here about 10 or 12 times and each time it has been 5 stars.

We've been going to Kabul since the week it opened nearly 30 years ago. Fantastic kabobs, vegetable dishes, and stews. It is a family favorite and a hit with all our visitors, even for less adventurous eaters.

We had a delicious Afghan dinner at this restaurant. Their new location is very nice, very near "downtown" Sunnyvale and various other restaurants, coffee houses and bars. We shared the Qabili Pallaw lamb dish, along with the Vegetarian Platter that included three different vegetarian dishes, all delicious and plentiful. The prices were very reasonable, and with tea, tax and tip,... More

I love middle eastern food and mediterranean food and Kabul doesn't disappoint. I like coming here with large groups because they have round tables that make conversation easy. The food is very good too. I usually order some sort of lamb or pumpkin dish. The dishes come with rice on the side and bread. I always have leftovers to take... More

I've come here infrequently for many years. It never disappoints, but it always puts a dent in my wallet. Great chicken kabobs. I prefer Salang Pass in Fremont for value as well as consistent quality, but if you are craving Afghan food and can't make it to Fremont, this is your place. It's now located in downtown Sunnyvale with slightly... More

This was my first visit to Kabul since they moved to this new location. I had not been to Kabul for a while so our visit was overdue because they do offer excellent Afghani food. We went for lunch. Glad we made reservations because the place was packed. The waiters started us out with a simple salad. They could do... More

The restaurant had moved to a new location. Its a nicer place than the previous place. The have a big menu, the rice is very tasty and moist. My favorite dish is lamb with Eggplant in special sauce. Their meals come with salad and bread.
