Great service! Great food! Great atmosphere! We will only choose Sansom Kabob House for our Afghani food. The other ones in Philly are just mean and serve cold food.

Beyond the very good authentic food, lilting music, charming artifacts, a lovely mural, beaded curtains, white tablecloths, etc., enhance the dining experience. For lunch on a very cold day we had a delicious hearty lunch of bowls of hot golden pea soup, along with a...More

We lived in Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Arab Lebanon, but...More

Four of us ate at the Sansom Kabob House last night. None of us had ever eaten there before. We ate two appetizers, four entrees, and four desserts. We were all in awe. The appetizers, sambosas, chick peas and potato pastries with a cilantro sauce...More

Usually I like to review only great experiences, so feel a bit conflicted about giving this one. Frankly, great space, lovely servers, but the food left me desiring for more. If I pay $16.99 for vegetarian dish I would expect much better than what I...More
