For ten years I lived across the street from this wonderful restaurant. I have taken countless friends and relatives here and without exception they have all loved it. In fact, when coming back in town guests demand to go again! The only sad thing is that I have moved out of the city and rarely have the opportunity to eat here any more. None of the other reviews have mentioned the Red and Green sauces. They are fantastic - though they are on the spicy hot side so caution if you don't like spicy. They are different and better than the similar sauces in the other Afghan Kabob Houses. I also like the Turshee - better known to us as pickled vegetables. Again, not for the faint of heart; however, if you like pickled vegetables though, they don't get better than this. And finally, the Firnee is a delicious light dessert which makes a wonderful finish to this fantastic meal. Portions are generous without being gluttonous. I am always well satisfied and eager for my next opportunity to eat there. Bring your own wine or beer. And be ready to relax and enjoy some of the best food in NYC.

I've been coming to the Afghan Kebab House since 1987 and the food has always been phenomenal. I have taken friends and family there and everyone always raves about how simple and good the food is. I generally stick with the lamb tikka kebab or the beef tikka kebab, though I've also had the chicken and it's excellent, as well. The eggplant appetizer is amazing, and I love the sambosas. I can't recommend this place highly enough -- very affordable and great food.

I ordered the chicken breast kabob. The pieces of chicken were nicely grilled over charchoal. The edges had an excellent crunch to them. Some of the pieces, however, were a bit on the small side. The quality was excellent. The accompyning salad was good and was very fresh. The rice was excellent. The salad dressing and sauces were very strong, but excellent none the less. I love middle eastern food and this is one of the best places I've found in New York. The prices are reasonable. You receive a lot of value. The only thing is that the resteraunt is cramped and I found the bread to be nothing special.

I love this place. Their food is delicious and a fantastic value. And their salad dressing is absolutely amazing, better than any 5 star restaurant. The waitstaff are extremely nice and courteous. The restaurant itself is ok - not the best decor. But for a casual night out, it's just right. I have ordered in from here numerous times and the food is just as good as eating there. If only I could get the recipe for their salad dressing....

Definitely try the eggplant platter which comes with rice, salad, and bread. It's tangy and sumptuous with the interesting green and red sauces it comes with. They are always so friendly on the phone for take-out orders.

We have a family friend from Los Angeles who always makes Afgan Kebab House a part of his trips to NYC, even when he doesn't call us! The food is scrumptuous, and if you can manage it, try the pudding. It looks like rice pudding but without rice, it is made with rose water and crushed pistachio nuts and is phenomenal.
