Afghan | South Philly, Philadelphia

I've been to Sansom Kabob House a handful of times and I totally love it! Everything on the menu is delicious and has that warm-hug comfort quality. I often forgo kabobs (although they are fabulous) because I especially love the ashak (scallion filled dumplings, something like ravioli, with meaty tomato sauce and yogurt) and the meatballs (spiced, in a tomato sauce, served with rice) but I love everything I've had there! The entrees all come with bread, spicy chutney and green salad with yogurt dressing--the perfect starter for sure. There's a good sized vegetarian entree section which is awesome. And the desserts (baklava, ice cream, and milk pudding) are all outstanding: floral, satisfying, and refreshing. I love the vibe (more relaxed than rowdy) and the decor (gorgeous art objects everywhere and a beautiful mural). More

Great service as always. Still a bit pricey for what it is but I can’t conplain about that. Would love to see more entrees on the menu. Perhaps some pasta/seafood dishes. Beer selection is all large Distro domestic/import. Very little, if any, actual craft beer available. I would like to see them embrace local breweries a little more. #DrinkLocal More

Overall this restaurant was outstanding. The food was absolutely wonderful. Try the Thai style calamari-different, but delicious. Our waitress was very nice. Can't say that for the rest of the staff. We were basically alone-no other customers-for about 30 to 40 minutes; yet, they were talking and cackling so loud we felt a little uncomfortable. Otherwise, everything else was fine. More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
