General Info:
Kabul is recognized as one of the area's restaurants for "consistently delightful," "absolutely delicious" and "wonderfully spiced" authentic, Afghan fare. Rated Excellent as reviewed in "Philadelphia Restaurants" by Zagat Survey. Dress code is casual. All major credit cards are accepted- BYOB-There is only one small step before the entrance, so wheel chairs are welcome. Parking is available at the E-Z parking lot across the street. Kabul Afghan Cuisine is a non-smoking restaurant. American taste buds have been changed forever. Kabul, an adventure in exotic dining, uncommon to Philadelphians, is the city's first and original Afghan restaurant since 1991. Kabul is the kind of restaurant people return to again and again for the best of all possible reasons: fine, fresh, attractively presented food; attentive, agreeable service; pleasant surroundings; reasonable prices plus a profusion of discounts. The restaurant is chef and family owned and operated. That means that everyone involved with your order equates your pleasure with their prosperity. Kabul's menu is characterized predominantly by uniquely spiced lamb and chicken main courses, recently expanded to include an ample sampling of vegetarian dishes. Everything bread to salad dressing to desserts is prepared on the premises. The sauces are subtle and sophisticated. All the food is marinated in herbs and spices in order to achieve the true flavor of Afghan cuisine.

Head to Arianna's

Poor service and small portions made for a miserable night out. If you go stick to the appetizers, salads, and side dishes. We ordered two vegetarian entrees and received two large plates of rice and two tiny cups of dal. Our bread was burnt and the dal lacked not only spices but salt. Our server was inattentive and bordered on rude. Head down the street to Arianna's!

Great food. Gracious and attentive service.

I go to Kabul often and like it quite a lot. The owner / front-of-the-house guy; Wali, is always wonderful. Very gracious and always charming.\r \r We are seated promptly, and the service is attentive without being overbearing or rude.\r \r The food has some spice, but it is what I would call genuine spice - not just hot-pepper-hot. Not hot just for the sake of being hot. There are lots of vegetarian choices... view more

yummy Afghan treat

If you are looking for amazing Afghani food in the city, don't go anywhere else! Aushok here is out of this world, and the fragrant chicken and rice dishes (laden with saffron and flavored with cinammon) are unbelievable. Samosa-type appetizers are also great too (order a few; portions are not too big here). Dinner comes with sesame seed flatbread and a yummy dipping sauce. Service is friendly; once we told the h... view more

It's quite average for me...

I was quite excited when I found this place from citysearch. The 3 previous reviews were pretty much giving this place a highmark. However, I believe the restaurant was a bit overrated by the 3 previous reviews.\r We were seated promptly which was good, the table service was not all that good however. Our waiter was not attentive. Once they brought out the food, nobody asked us if we need anything at all during ... view more

Excellent food

The food was tasty as was the tea. Nice quiet atmosphere. If you are looking for something a little different you should check this place out.

Nice Quiet Restaurant - BYOB

Recently went here with my wife. It is a nice small restaurant and the best thing it is a BYOB. Food is good... really liked the grilled vegeterian on the skewer. Friendly service. Avoid the rice pudding (custard)... too sweet.

Not Indian, Afghani!

First of all, Kabul is not an Indian restaurant as the entry says, it's Afghani (that's two countries away!). This is simply one of the most enjoyable restaurants in Philly. The food is interesting, rich, and exotic. It seems like something you would have eaten in a rich trader's tent on the spice route 300 years ago. If you don't like spicy food (I do), don't worry--it's completely palatable, even to the most unc... view more
