Unless you grew up in Afghanistan, Afghan cuisine is probably new to you. Lucky you! It's not every day you get to discover a whole new world of flavors, aromas and ancient recipes. Afghan cooking is hearty, healthy and delicious. It makes use of native grains, such as basmati rice, corn and wheat, and generous portions of fruits and vegetables. Because Afghanistan is a Muslim country, its meat dishes are prepared according to halal guidelines. You can find lamb, chicken and beef on the menu, as well as plenty of fantastic rice specialties. Afghan cuisine is not as spicy as some, but it is rich and flavorful instead. Maiwand Kabob House is proud to offer our truly excellent and authentic Afghan dishes to our customers—including you.

Kabobs are a customer favorite and one of our favorites, too. Our Chabli Kabobs are made of the finest beef, ground and shaped into patties. They might look like a hamburger, but they have veggies and spices and are much lighter. Our Chopan Kabob is made of luscious lamb chops barbecued on a skewer. If you are a fan of the rich and distinctive flavor of lamb, you won't find anything better. If you can't decide, choose a Combo Platter and share with friends.

More About Us!

Another popular dish in Afghanistan—and here at Maiwand Kabob House, too!--is Palau. Palau is similar to a pilaf with meat, and it plays a very important role in Afghan cuisine and culture. It is often featured as a main dish. We use long-grained rice and mix it up with aromatic spices like cloves and cardamom and a huge variety of delicious ingredients. Savory rice, sweet raisins, crunchy carrots, perfectly cooked meat: you've got it all with our Qabili Palau.

We've barely begun to describe all the wonderful dishes on our menu. Did we mention that all our meats are free range and organic as well as halal? They are, and our customers really appreciate the difference in freshness and flavor. Pay us a visit and have fun getting to know this amazing cuisine!
