“My favorite Bay Area restaurant”
Reviewed 19 January 2008

My husband and I have been dining at this restaurant for years. We always choose this restaurant when we've had a stressful week and need to unwind. The service is very professional and unobtrusive. The quality and preparation of the dishes is excellent and consistent from one visit to the next. You can take your time, talk and enjoy your meal in a setting that is neither noisy nor rushed.

Be adventuresome and hoose from some dishes other than the kabobs...try one of the lamb dishes such as quabali palaw. Try the kadu (butternut squash that is prepared so smooth and lightly sweet, topped with yoghurt ). The sambosa appetizer is delicious and comes with a spicy dipping sauce.

“Best beef kabobs I've ever eaten”
Reviewed 2 October 2006

The beef kabobs were really good. The beef was tender and tasty, the rice they come with is amazing. They cook it with a blend of authentic, traditional spices that result in an aromatic, flavorful rice that is a perfect compliment for the beef. There is a wide range of other authentic dishes on the menu.
The wait staff was courteous and helpful, the restaurant was clean and pleasantly decorated, the food was well priced. The interior was dimly lit, while I prefer brightly lit, but I recommend The Afghani House, and, obviously, their beef kabobs.

“Great Atmosphere - Good Afghani Food”
Reviewed 2 August 2005

Afghani House has wonderful food......they have great appetizers, meat dishes, as well as nice dishes for vegetarian eaters. The atmosphere is very nice and makes for one of those special nights out. Service is good and has a nice wine/beer list. Its one of the best places to enjoy Afghani Food in the San Jose area.
