Kabul was amazing. My girlfriend and I went there for a date night not knowing what to expect. The menu had a wide variety of food that suited both of us. I eat meat and my girlfriend is a vegetarian. We had such a good time. The atmosphere was good, the staff was very friendly, and the food was amazing. We have been talking about for days already and will be going back with lots of friends and family.

We were initially trying to eat at the Israel restaurant near this place but they were too full and said we would have a 4 hour wait. So off we went looking for some Middle Eastern food. Ofcourse, like most people, I rely heavily on ZAGAT, YELP and other places to recommend places to dine. After scrolling through many restaurants, we decided to investigate this spot, since the rating was good and no ill feelings were described in the first 20 reviews. We walked through the door and was greeted and asked to wait for a seat. We ended up sitting near the entrance, actually pretty much the doorway since it was cramped and lack of space is an understatement. We were given water, that I never touched and order was taken a few minutes later. Now the first thing you noticed is that this is a BYOB (Bring your own booze), which was cool. The décor was what you would expect from Afghanistan and the table arrangements were all over the place. Our orders were taken and we were served the appetizer, which was a dumpling in some creamy sauce. Nothing special. Got the main course which was lamb under a bed of rice topped with cashews, nuts and berries. I expected more topping and generous portions, but hey it's an Afghanistan restaurant. The food was ok; my stomach was still plaguing me from earlier, after eating a disgusting Steak Sandwich from someplace call Gino's. Needless to say, I had to take a pee pee and asked for the bathroom. It was downstairs in what looked like a dungeon, but gotta go. We had dinner, both lamb and then a desert of some sweet tart, I could tell was store bought and sold at $4 to consumers. During the meal, you could see the employees (owner) running around. You could tell they need more staff to accommodate customers coming in and having to wait and those eating, needing attention. It was pitiful to watch as, they tried to work their best. Two things came in mind. Being a person who served in the Armed Forces and seen the actual country, I figure this family had started from nothing and this is great success for them. I wanted to hear the accent, but all of them spoke English better than I hear from anyone else. I felt that it wasn't authentic and too commercialized. I would like for them to grasp their heritage and do this the right way. I gave three stars for effort.

This might be the worst Afghan food I ever had. Besides the quality of food the prices are very high. Drink a lot of alcohol if you want to imagine this is afghan food. I was surprised to see the servings and what they are selling as afghan cuisine. They need to go get some basic training in afghan recipes or simply go to DC area and eat at a couple of afghan restaurants. This is an american version of afghan cuisine and the value is not there.

I went here in hopes of trying a cuisine I haven't ever had before. The service was slow and they messed up my order, but because it was so slow, I didn't bother to tell them my meal was wrong. And I asked for it to be spicy. The waiter looked at me funny and asked if that was what I really wanted. I said yes but the food was still very bland. I guess they didn't trust that I wanted what I said I did. I was a little disappointed in my overall experience.

The service was slow but nice. The food and atmosphere are legit. The food came out quickly and was very good. I plan the return in the future.

We arrived just after opening, and received wonderful service and amazing food! Sometimes establishments treat you poorly when they know you have a Groupon, but we had fabulous service. The foods we chose for the appetizer sampler were DELICIOUS - I don't know if I liked the Sambosa Goushti or the feta turnovers better - and the suggestions from the chef were tasty (and I'm not a big pumpkin fan). We shared a plate Kabuli Palaw, and ordered extra meat (so we actually tried both chicken and lamb). It was truly wonderful, but WHO could finish that whole thing??? We were both hungry, but after the appetizers, together we still took home food. And I broke down and ordered the carrot cake to go… Oh. My. Goodness. YUMMY! Overall, this was a wonderful place for a meal, and if you are willing to try new dishes and flavors, this will not disappoint! Nothing was too spicy, but it also wasn't bland - they were balanced, well-seasoned dishes and very generous servings! We will be returning!

An excellent restaurant. One of the few Afghani restaurants in Philadelphia, sadly. While I have limited experience with Afghani cuisine, the meal was delicious! I highly recommend the Must-E-Badrang appetizer which is quite refreshing (diced cucumber in yoghurt-mint sauce) as well as the Korma-e-Saib entrée (seasoned lamb with apples and onions on rice). Overall, there is a lot to choose from on the menu, and if I were to go again the only thing I would change is to order the extra meat option. I think the prices are comparable to other Philadelphia restaurants. Nice interior design.
