Rated 2 out of 5 by The meal was way too expensive for the amount of food served. For ex: the menu stated bread with the meal, but the piece was SO small...We're not sure we were slighted, having mentioned the discount coupon right away. Oct 11, 2013

Highlights

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

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. As for the desserts, Elaine Tait, an Inquirer restaurant critic, once wrote, "I've grown accustomed to ethnic desserts that don't always measure up to our standards for sweets. What we're served at Kabul, however, were unusual but familiar enough to satisfy a majority of American sweet- lovers."

At Kabul, half the fun of eating Afghan food is the atmosphere. The soothingly alto Afghan music immediately sets a tranquil mood. The decor intrigues: pink walls adorned with colorful native rugs, striped costumes and portraits of stoic warriors. To complete the ambiance, the restaurant is lit primarily by candlelight.
