Afghan food

  • 8

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...

    Kabul - in Sunnyvale

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

      Kabul also is in Belmont on El Camino.

    2. Helmand is a great Afghan restaurant. Here's a link to their menu:


      1. Bamyan in San Rafael.

          1. 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.
