My younger brother and wife took us here for dinner, personally met the owner, Moses, who also waited on us and answered some menu questions. Shish Kabob is outstanding, no matter which dish you select, the appetizers are to kill for and the sauces used....WOW !!! If you're in the area and want a very quiet and delightful dinner with...

We had dinner here recently. 1. For the quantity and quality of food it is pricey. 2. Ground chicken kebabs were soggy, just like someone reheated them in a microwave 3. There are way better places for the real Afgani food....

First came here with friends for a birthday dinner, and wasn't sure what to expect. What a nice surprise! The restaurant is elegant, spotless, with wonderful food, and the service is friendly and first rate. There is also an outdoor patio for cool evenings. The food is really good. I like meat and my wife likes vegetables, and since we... More

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.

The wish of an earlier review came true, because it was more crowded when we went here on a Friday night. 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
