I can't believe I have never tried afghan food!! The most amazing flavors and combinations ever! Went with a large group of friends after work for a drink and ended up staying for an amazing dinner! Our first time and certainly not our last! Owner actually came by to introduce himself and offer us dessert on the house! Great experience... More

Recently I wanted to try different cuisine - something unknown to me and not very common. We went to Bamiyan - Persian delight. We were very nicely surprised - greeted by really pleasant hostess we were seated on the cushion seats by the window. Our server (really nice woman) was attentive throughout the evening, explained the menu and did a... More

We stopped for lunch and were amazed by the food, the decor and the service. We sat on the cushion seats at the window. I must warn you, it is difficult to get in and out of these and then when you sit, your legs must be kept straight it becomes a challenge not to get tangled with the person... More

For those of us who do not know very much about Persian or Afghan cuisine, this place was a pleasant and welcoming find. The attentive staff kindly helped us navigate the varied menu. We had the five course meat dinner for two and experienced a wide variety of interesting and delicious dishes. Featuring soup, salad, appetizer, choice of entree and... More

I love the decor theme of the restaurant but found it to be dark, shabby and less than clean. If my daughter hadn't eaten here many times before I would not have stayed. We sat along the windows on carpet covered cushions where the people watching is great, though not recommend seating for older, less fit people. The mixed drink... More

This was my second favourite restaurant in New York City after the counter but if you fancy a proper meal this is the place to go. The food is Afghani and tastes very similar to Iranian food. The service was quick and I loved the taste combinations. I would eat here again and for me made a nice change from... More
