Afghan food

When I was living in NYC, I used to love a nearby Afghan restaurant. Does anyone know of any in the Bay Area? Especially one that serves pumpkin samusas...

    Helmond - in S.F. on Broadway
    Kabul - in Sunnyvale

    Not sure about the samusas but they definately serve pumpkin dishes. Both are very good.

        Here's a link to Kabul's (actually in San Carlos) menu:

          There's a large Afghan community in Fremont and a number of restaurants there.

            Surprisingly, Walnut Creek has De Afghanan at 1250J Newell St.
            It's away from the downtown parking madness. Modern decor but nice and quiet, not a yuppie meet market.
