While scouring the Peninsula for a restaurant on Sunday night, my partner came across Marcopolo and thank goodness she did! We called them to see if they were able to take us for dinner, but at the time they were fully booked. They took our number and said they'd call back if something became available - which they did not... More

Went as a family group of 7 with two children. Put into a cramped cubicle on bench seats. Service was casual and non-professional. Food interesting but lacking the real experience of the cuisine of Afghanistan. By this I mean that there were no standout traditional dishes such as are offered by other nationality based menus like Greek, Italian, Mongolian etc.... More

Went for a romantic dinner on Wednesday. We had booked 2 days beforehand. When we arrived we were informed that the restaurant was booked out but we could sit on cushions out the back. It was a bit dusty and not dirty as such but not the cleanest area. This happened to be near the toilets which were hidden by... More

Food had great flavour to it without being to hot. It's worth trying afghan food if you like Indian as it's very similar. The staff were nice and are happy to help you navigate the menu. It's also a plus that it's BYO.

We have been meaning to try this restaurant for some time and visited it on Sunday. Wish we had done it long before - it was fantastic ! We sampled a variety of dishes and each one of them didn't disappoint. Lovely delicate flavours, with just the right balance of spices. We will be back !

Went once with friends and it was "nice". The place was jammed with people and you need to book well in advance, but I really didn't think it was anything special. All the dishes seemed to look the same when they came out and no one LOVED their food. Service was slow. The only real bonus was that its BYO.... More

We were all a bit shocked when we received the bill to see that we had been charge $24 for 3 bottles just for corkage. The food was okay, but the waitress was miserable and didn't say a word, not sure how we managed to order. They even had their jackets on as a hint to make us leave. Not... More

We have not eaten Afghan food before this. The food was very nice and the restaurant is not over priced. Worth a try
