We came here on a Thursday evening, early, in order to make it to the Arden theater by 8 p.m. We were able to find parking in the street nearby, and had a leisurely walk to Kabul, which is a BYOB. We were the first patrons, were greeted warmly and enjoyed the genuine-looking decor. The food was delicious, and we will definitely return in the future to try some of their meat dishes. We are only eating vegan right now. For appetizers we had the Afghani samosas, deep-fried vegetable filling in a dough. We also had a pumpkin filling in ravioli-type appetizer. Both were very tasty. Then we were served a salad with a house dressing, which had a hint of mint. Different but delicious. And for our entres, I had a brown rice with dal, a yellow lentil type of sauce, which was excellent, and proved tastier (to us) than my husband's sweet saffron rice with a spinach sauce. But we took what was left of his rice home, and enjoyed it today. For dessert, we decided to try their Afghan specialty -- a carrot cake, which seemed like a regular American carrot cake, except that it was drenched in two sauces, which gave it an exotic taste. I forget the one, but the other was rose water. If you like food that is not your run-of-the-mill diner food, Kabul is definitely an authentic (at least to our eyes, since there were patrons there conversing in what seemed like the waitstaff's native tounge) place worthy of a visit.
