Kabul Afghan Cuisine serves Afghani cuisine on the San Francisco Peninsula with locations in Burlingame and San Carlos. We dined for lunch at the newer Burlingame location. They do have some options for vegetarians. Our last visit was in February 2011.

Kabul Afghan Cuisine Interior

Decor, Vibe – This location across from the Caltrain station has served as home for 3 different restaurants in a year. Nice decor with lots of regional artifacts, Middle Eastern music, and decorative pieces. Place was half full for lunch with mostly locals taking a lunch break.

Kabul Afghan Cuisine Sarsi Challaw

Sarsi Challaw ($11.95) Cubes of lamb cooked with fresh spinach, onions, and garlic, served with challaw (white Rice) got large cubes of stewed tender lamb covered with the spinach.

Kabul Afghan Cuisine Kebab Combination

Kabul’s Combination Kabab ($15.50) Skewer of lamb kabob and skewer of chicken kabob, served with pallaw was a healthy sized lunch portion. The lamb meat was tender and flavorful although the lamb had some medium to medium well chunks. Chicken breast meat was a bit rubbery. The Pallaw basmeti rice had a slight hint of cardamum spice to it. The dish came with a non descript small lettuce salad and some warm Afghani bread that seemed microwaved.



Kabul Afghan Cuisine service was friendly and competent. Prices are reasonable and portions are liberal. Service was fair, we had to track down the server several times. If you are looking for Afghani food give this place a try. Short wine list with glass from $3.95, Bottles from $22.
