Lovely place to eat.

We went twice in May. Once with old friends and later with our daughter. Both evenings were wonderful. The food is unique and delicious. The decor is beautiful and relaxing, and the service is quiet and efficient.

I saw only two people working and they were quite busy, so service was not quite as attentive as the last time I ate here. Nonetheless, the food is still delicious. Lots of lamb dishes and we like lamb.... More

It always amazes me when there's an hour and a half wait at some gross chain restaurant, and I come to a small restaurant like this, and we were the only ones eating there on a Saturday night! The food was ridiculously delicious and I really hope I can persuade people to at least give this place a try. We... More

It seems a little difficult to find restaurants that have really good food, beautiful decor and atmosphere, excellent service AND offer something different from the ordinary coming from the kitchen. Bamiyan does quite well in all those categories. While I'm no expert when it comes to Afghan food, the dishes we had were delicious, not spicy, and beautiful to look... More

Great time with my wife and some colleagues, good atmosphere and service. The Lamb Shish Kabob, with sautéed spinach, and mushrooms. Excellent spices and tender lamb. Quiet place for couples or a business meeting.

My brother's fiancée and I ate lunch on the patio. The fresh air and sunshine plus delicious food created high spirits. I'd love to go back!

This was my first experience tasting Afghan food and I loved it. The restaurant is lovely and our server was exceptional. They had a nice wine list and the prices were very reasonable. I can not remember the exact dish I had, but was fabulous. There were 5 of us for dinner and we all shared a bite of each... More

The food, service, and atmosphere has always been outstanding. A nice quiet restaurant with light yet lively background music. A wonderful restaurant to enjoy conversation with one another.
