Sansom Kabob House is a rare gem among Philadelphia restaurants. Quiet atomosphere wth just the right amount of light and music is relaxing. One thing that stands out is the restaurant is open on Mondays for luch, not many Afghan restaurants are! Delicious aromatic food with exotic drinks. Prices are very reasonable and service is good. Try chicken kabobs with yogurt drink and Firni as dessert. Loved food and a grest experience there...not expensive either !!

Absolutely one of the best deals around the city. Great flavor and prime spot for a nice intimate meal with friends, family, or even a hot date. Fav: Qwablee palaw. Don't let the decor scare you away, this place cuts down in glamor for full on flavor. Enjoy! 10 - I'm a stickler for food MR.

This place is AMAZING.. everyone should go here at least once and you'll be hooked.. My uncle took me here first and i have taken at least 10 of my friends and family.. thus far NO ONE has complained and EVERYONE has been impressed with the food.. I have eaten Kabobs in London, Atlanta, Philly and Pakistan and these are definitely in the top 5, I have ever had. GO and eat.. recommendation: Samson Kabob, Beef, Lamb, and Chicken.. could it get any better?

I absolutely love this place! At first sight you might be hesitant, but once you enter you get an immediate sense of good home cooking, something that's not necessarily found so often in Philly. X the fancy shmancy decor, the over thought plate presentation, and Must dress to impress atmosphere, here's real food for an amazing price. The lamb is So incredibly succulent, my recommendation Quablee Palaw. It's a great place to have friends converse and relax, and an amazing cozy first date place. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Sansom kabob house has wonderful Afghan food - everything on their menu tastes great. They also have wonderful decorations all over their restaurant and great service. It feels nice going to a family owned restaurant where people actually want to, and actually do their jobs well.

The food here is really really delicious; I've had the fish and the lamb kabobs, both excellent, as well as two of the vegetarian entrees, which were also both really filling and yummy. The bread that comes with the meals is phenomenal, and you can't beat a salad, bread, meat, and a huge side of the tastiest brown rice ever for ten bucks. Plus it's byo, and there's a wine store just a couple blocks away on 19th and chestnut. The only downer is the service, which is awful. I've had one server who was moody and barely spoke a word, and another who seemed well-intentioned but had no idea what he was doing. It took 20 minutes for him to open our wine and bring glasses, then another 15 for him to take our order, and there are only like 6 tables in the place. It's worth the wait though, and once you get past the dingy front of the place, the tables in the back are actually really cute.

If this restaurant were in Washington DC, it would surely make the Washingtonian's Best Cheap Eats issue. Four of us ate for $60 including tip ($70 if you add in our jug of BYO wine). We had the eggplant and meat sauce, potato and scallion, houmus and soup appetizers - most good although the houmus was kind of flat. The lamb shish was tasty as was the lamb-chicken-beef shish. The server seemed a little dour, and service was just shy of slow.
