First time visit to Afghan Marcopolo which we stumbled upon walking up the street. What a find. Food was great service was swift and polite. We were lucky to get a walk in on a Thursday night as the place was full. Size of meals was generous and we did not really need the Garlic Nan, which tasted... read more

Visited the restaurant with five friends, granted it was a Saturda night. Our drink order was placed but, we had to ask three times before it was delivered. The food at this establishment is first class, just a pity the front of house staff let the kitchen down so badly. Be prepared to wait along time on a weekend. One... More

This is a favourite restaurant of ours, food is very good. Last week it took 1 hour to get our 1st course and the restaurant wasn't anywhere near full. Out came our main courses; they had forgotten all of our entrées! "Oh well; we'll bring them out later." A drink 25 mins from order! Sweets arrived, well half of them,... More

Been here a few times, one with family and few times with friends. I can never finish my meals, they're huge and so tasty and healthy. Great price and great service.

Having made a booking we were disappointed to be told the table had been triple-booked. Reluctantly we accepted the alternative of a street table. A chill wind blew off the bay. Our orders were taken along with a request for some wine.some ten minutes later we were told that, because we were in the street, no alcohol could be served.... More

I have been to the Afghan restaurant 3 times in the past 2 months. The food is really good I have had several main courses and they are all good. Anything with Lamb is my pick but the vegetarian food is delicious as well. Desserts are nice and the entrees are fun. I was not as happy with the Naan... More

Dear Fellow Foodies - I write to you from the lethargic depths of the most satisfying of food comas! I CAN'T RATE THIS PLACE HIGH ENOUGH!!!! There needs to be bonus stars for these rare finds!!!! I don't even know where to begin. We didn't have a booking but the bubbly waitress phoned us as soon as a table was... More

The food was deliciously different and the service was impeccable. The restaurant caters for vegetarians and dishes can be varied to accommodate all tastes. The staff were very helpful and explained meals in detail. They were happy to make any changes required

I've been an infrequent diner here over many years and I've found it to be very consistent for quality, atmosphere and price. The set menus are a really good option and at $45 you get plenty of great food. I'd highly recommend this place if you're in town. Byo wine (corkage applies) and beers range from $7.50 to $9
