We never visit Philadelphia without enjoying a dinner at Kabul. It's been one of our favorite places to eat this wonderfully unique "comfort" food, rich with warm spices, rice, and sauces while soft music plays in the background. But every restaurant has a tough night...More

This place looked the food would be authentic. There was a large table of patrons with the women in traditional garb. I ordered the brown rice with raisins and nuts. I was disappointed. It was overly moist with little seasoning. Now, the baklava, which I...More

First time trying Afghani food and I’m surprised about the new flavors. The amount of food is good and the service was really nice. It’s a BYOB so you can bring your own beverage and drink it there. The place is decorated with traditional Afghani...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 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

Food was average and so was the service. Lamb Kabobs were a bit chewy; serving size was small. What bothered me most was the that automatic gratuity was included in the bill. I would not have tipped to the level included.

We were a group of 7 and we ordered different types of food and they all tasted amazing. We also tried their desert which were out of this world. Definitely a must to try this place...

I ordered a dish called Chef's Ashaak (spelling?) listed, with a description, under 'House Specialties'. I found it one of the most delicious restaurant meals I have had in a long time. Service was a bit slow, even though the place was not crowded.
