this food is great and the cute waiter ask me for my number- even though that is not professional, he is a very much a sweet heart and became a great boyfriend! my parents loved him too! but i hate when i order and this drug dealing afghan kid named esmat who lives across in the glen on main st. and franklin ave. i believe he lives on the 7th floor- comes in with this light skin black friend steven who has a kid and this other short goofy black kid named jay jay and tries to cause issue there! can't stand these people! and this kid steven hits on me when he has a cuban girl and a child! i swear biracial men, just like his brother adam- both are blood suckers like their mother lisa.
The family, friends and I have been visiting this establishment for over 15 years. While it has gone through a couple different owners over the years, the food quality and taste has remained consistent. You can BYOB if you like but they ask you to keep the bottle under the table out of respect for the other customers (Afgan who do not drink alcohol).
The kebob platters come with a ton of basmati (either white, brown or a phenomenal 'green' version on Friday made with dill and limas), raw onions and a grilled tomato. A small but satisfying salad is served with every platter. I recommend grabbing an order of the sambosas and mantoo as an appetizer ~ yummy!
The younger wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. There's a guy with glasses and always wears a tie (probably the owner or manager) who doesn't have a lot of personality and has occasionally been kind of rude with special requests - like the time I asked if they could make a dish that I really enjoy called tadig , but apparently it is a PITA for the kitchen to make. It is an off-the-menu item available at many Afgan/Indian places and I had it many times before at this place before the newest management came in. This guy in the tie / glasses made a scene and shouted that they do not make it and I should never ask for it again! If the food wasn't so darn good here, I would have left and never returned. But this was about 4-5 years ago and I sill come back at least 2x a month.
There's evan stuff for your vegan buddies to have here, so everyone should be happy. It's not spicy, but rather well-seasoned and marinated meats. You can't really go wrong going to Kabul. We drive from New Jersey into Queens to visit this joint a couple times a month.
My wife and I were visiting my old neighborhood, Flushing, when we decided to go out to dinner. We usually go out for Thai or Malaysian, but this time I suggested that we check out the Afghan restaurant that we walk past frequently, called Kabul Kabob. She does not like lamb, but I said that they have several other meats besides lamb (except pork).
It’s only a storefront wide, and can get crowded. When we walked in there were a couple of large families taking up several tables, and keeping the wait staff busy. However, they soon found a table for us and brought the menus out. There were the usual shish kabobs, as well as stews and fish dishes. My wife opted for a beef shish kabob with saffron rice, and I decided on a beef stew with saffron rice. The meals came out fairly quickly, as the large families were finishing up and leaving. They also gave us flat breads, something like pita, but a bit harder. I managed to finish my meal, and was not hungry when leaving. Since I usually order drinks only at formal dining occasions, I did not look to see if there was a wine or beer list. However, since this is an Afghan restaurant, they would probably not have one since the Koran forbids it.
I noticed that except for my wife and me, the other diners were all of Middle Eastern origin, proving that the meals are authentic Afghan cuisine.
We both recommend the restaurant highly if you are ever in Flushing near the Queens Botanical Gardens.
