Kabul is the ultimate dinning place for Afghani cuisine. A great place to venture whether one goes there for lunch or dinner or both. The ambience and décor is warm and welcoming. The prices are reasonable for the plateful of delicious food. One can never go wrong in choosing a Moremeal. There are many varieties for one can choose from. The appetizers are perfect samplings of what is to come. The lamb kabobs are phenomenal. With an array of kabob selections, the menu also caters to vegetarians.

  • Rating: 5.0 out of 5"Jul 23, 2014 · by Amy P. from YelpI kept hearing positive things about this place, but I was never really inspired to go eat afganistani food. But some friends invited us and I ordered a very simple pumpkin dish. I didn't expect anything amazing. Wow, was I wrong! It was heavenly! We all shared bites of our dishes and I can tell you, this place has got it goin' on! Great food! You must try it! Full review
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jul 18, 2014 · by Jakob C. from YelpI am not really sure why this place is highly rated. I got excited by the 4.5 stars to eat pretty mediocre indian-tasting food. Except indian food has flavor, and this...not so much.Got some decent dumplings, and then the vege combo. Nothing tasted like much. Ate it, paid, left. Service was decent, space is pleasant.A-Ok.
