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. I like the lamb too. And the skewered meatballs are always yummy. Oh; and make it a point to order something with pumpkin.\r \r For dessert get a milk pudding with the pistachio nuts ground on top. The dairy perfectly balances the spicy -ness of the food. (again: it is not Hot <g>) I think this is why some dishes come with a sauce which includes yogurt - the dairy balances everything out.\r \r I always feel very comfortable at Kabul. It's somehow as though you are eating at Wali's home. The restaurant is dark, cozy, and romantic, with exotic decorations everywhere.\r \r All in all: very pleasant with really yummy food. And not just 'more good food' - it's distinctively different and wonderful.</g>
