This is our second time there.. we all liked our appetizers
2 didn’t like what they ordered and 2 didn’t
Great service and tasty food in a pleasant atmosphere.
Found the place to be very inviting. Very comfortable waiting area almost like sitting in my living room. The food was authentic and quite tasty. Our server was warm, hospitable and very accommodating. Overall a very enjoyable time was had by all.
Food was amazing!!!
LOVE Kabul House! We have been going to this restaurant since they had a small Afghan/pizza place in Evanston -- many years ago. Food is always fantastic! Love that they have moved to a new larger location -- and definitely seem to be thriving. Large portions -- you can bring your own wine with a small corkage fee. Definitely recommend it.
I have been here 5 times, twice at its previous Skokie location. The ambiance is clean and posh. The service is highly attentive and communicative. Though I am not an expert the food seems authentic, true or not, the food is very good and served in generous portions. The dessert menu has about 8 items but all delicious. I would go more often but I am an hour away. Highly recommended. A fav.
Good ambience and excellent food. Slow service at times.
Service was extremely poor. They kind of forget about you after serving food. They gave us one small basket of bread with cold bread which was not sufficient for 8 people. We had to go find a waiter to bring us desert and more bread. It was over priced, food was good but could be better.
Good food and thoughtful attentive service although so busy they did the best they could. Manager very smart to customer comfort. Be prepared for a wait on weekends but worth it!.
Our waiter was extremely nice and very attentive. He was very polite and made nice conversation with a few jokes here and there. Overall a very nice evening with good food.
The food was great but we had a reservation and still had to wait 50 minutes for table. They seemed overwhelmed at times. We have been there before and it's been better.
The meal was great! Will definitely go back
Enjoyed a family dinner. Wonderful food and service
It’s always a wonderful experience. The staff are great. Gerber the waiter is excellent. We had a party of 9, two of the guest have severe food allergies and one of our guest is a vegan. Everything went excellent without any issues. Definitely I will be returning and recommending Kabul house to friends and family.
Although we had eaten at their previous location in Skokie, this was our first time eating at the Kabul House in Evanston. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We loved the decor, the open feel, and the natural light in their new space. The staff was very accommodating, allowing us to switch tables to one near a window so a young child with us could look out, and when that child fell asleep mid-meal, let him nap on a sofa within view of our table so his parents could finish their meal. The food was excellent, and so was the service. Several people besides our waiter checked to see if we were enjoying our food or if we needed anything. We had a coupon from Chicago North Shore Restaurant month, and the restaurant accepted it without giving us any problem. Finally, it was only steps from their parking lot to the front door, which was very convenient since we dined there on a rainy day. We talked about returning to the restaurant the next day to try other items on the menu. I guess that says a lot!
I've eaten at Kabul House twice in their present location and found the food very good and reasonably priced. The food is a little exotic, but familiarly so. It is not especially spicy (which is good for me), except for a couple of sauces that are available. Someone at our table wanted more spice in his vegetarian plate, and I don't think the server knew too well how to accommodate that. He brought some cooked peppers to the table, although they were not hot peppers. Later they were able to communicate about a certain kind of sauce my friend was looking for, and then they brought that and it was fine, just a little late. For me, their food is just right and very interesting.
We've watched Kabul House evolve over the years from a small spot to a moderate-sized place in Skokie to a truly lovely venue with a bigger menu in this custom-rehabbed restaurant in Evanston. It's a success story, largely due to the consistently delicious food. The newest iteration has several different areas, perfect for private parties or events. We're thrilled that they are open once again and recommend their cuisine to anyone curious about Afghani food.
We’ve been there a handful of times and will continue to come back. Love the food and the service is wonderful. Great place!!!
Friendly service, delicious, healthy food that offers something for every taste...vegetarian, seafood, and meat preferences. Must try all the appetizers, especially the pumpkin and eggplant dishes.
Love this place - so glad that its just as good if not better not moved to bigger premises. Highly recommend this - Chicken kebob is out of this world. Also great selection of appetizers for sharing. Also like the BYOB so very good value night out.
First time having Afghan cuisine and it was delicious, particularly the cardamom-infused tea and the mantoo, aushak, and vegetarian platter. The kabuli palau was also good, but the flavors and construction of the other items were more bright and interesting. We also got a couple of the rose water and pistachio custards for dessert and I thought they were a light and lovely finish to the meal.
Food was wonderful. Service was friendly, though a little slow. Lovely interior.
Good food and service. Need more parking.
Kabul House is a wonderful, authentic Afghani restaurant. Fantastic options for vegetarians.
Delicious food, warm hospitality, excellent service. The restaurant can handle big groups and quiet meals for 2.
What a fantastic evening and it is BYOB so that made an even better evening. From walking in the door and being greeted by a very, very friendly hostess, to Gerber our waiter who was totally one of the best and then having great appetizers, fantastic food and finishing off with an amazing dessert....Chocolate Fudge Cake (and that alone will bring me back !!).
Thanks for a great evening everyone....and already planning another visit to celebrate a friends Birthday !!
Great atmosphere and great service. The restaurant is very accommodating. The parking lots get quite full during the dinner service.
The food was good but I think it's a bit over price
We love ethnic dining, a highlight of the restaurant scene in the Chicago area. Kabel House was a stunning example. Highly recommend!
They seated us right near the serving counter, thus it was hot and the servers would keep coming behind us to take xtra plates etc which was pretty disturbing.
There was also a leak from the ceiling behind us. Ideally they should have closed off that section but they made us sit there which I was not happy about.
I love the restaurant and the food otherwise!
This restaurant was amazing when it was in a strip mall on Dempster. After a move to downtown Skokie they expanded back to Evanston into the former "Chicken and Waffles" restaurant. It has amazing food- the rice so well spiced, the varied meats tender, the salads and hummos and Afgan bread amazing. My favorite is the dumplings- order 2!
Terrible service we were there for at least an hour and a half and our food was not served. It took 40 minutes for the waiter to take out main order and that was after we complained. As we were leaving an hour and a half after we arrived our main enter was not ready and were told that it will be another 10 minutes for it to be ready. At this point we had no patience for this place. Not coming back.
Overall I'd give Kabul House 5 out of 5 stars. Why? Because of the tasty food, friendly service, and reasonable prices.
Firs, the food is amazingly flavorful. Familiar (like Greek or Middle Eastern food), but distinct and unique.
Second, the service is friendly and professional. From the host at the door to our waiter Dusan who took such great care of us that I'm sure to come back!
Third, it's a reasonable price for the huge portions and classy atmosphere.
All in all, a great time.
Amazing food at Kabul House with reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly and helped with recommendations.
We had a great dinner experience at Kabul House. The new restaurant is beautiful! Food is delicious and authentic. Our server was great as well. I would totally recommend it.
We had a large party or adults, kids, meat eaters and veggies. Something for everyone, served graciously.
We wanted to try something different. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. It was a wonderful way to end our stay in Chicago! Our server was very friendly, and informative, about the food and gave great suggestions. Portions were big...we wished we could have brought our leftovers back with us during our traveling! Definitely recommend this place on Dempster!
It is very nice place. They have friendly stuff and very good food. We ordered vegetables , chicken, lamb and all was very testy!
Excellent food and great service. Some menus have changed since they relocated. But overall great. Reservation recommended.
Great food and friendly service. I love this place.
Beautiful presentation, delicious flavors and lovely atmosphere. The new restaurant location creates an atmosphere that makes you feel like you are eating outside on a pretty patio when, in reality, you are indoors. Our server was very informative, helpful and even comedic! Highly recommend this place for a more unique dining experience. We will definitely be coming back!
