Pamir is the name of a mountainous area in Central Asia mainly in Afghanistan once along the route of Marco Polo’s Silk Road and also inhabited by descendants of Alexander the Great’s troops. The region’s cuisine was fortunate to inherit many exotic spices and flavors of Central Asia and its surrounding countries with influence from the Far East, Middle East, Mediterranean and Russia. Pamir Restaurant was originally opened in NYC in 1979 and has maintained the same family ownership and great recipes. Enjoy a taste of our history!

never would have guessed...

never would have guessed I'd like this, since I don't usually go for middle east or indiean food, but it was actually pretty good.

First time tried Afgan food and very disappointed. Came on a weekday afternoon, Lunch menu seems to be the same as dinner menu. Otherwise, it is extremely overpriced. Waiter pushes to have appetizer, side dish, etc and if you did that a simple lunch can easily be $30 per person. Me and my wife ordered chicken and lamb, they are... More

When we got there we had to wait to be seated as well as get some service. Although the waiter did warn us that there was a shortage of staff and glasses (strange). The restaurant is very simple, so we didnt expect the prices to be on the higher side. The food wa's overpriced for the portions we received. And... More

When I asked my hubby "If you could only eat 1 meal everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?" His answer "Norange Palaw from Pamir". Having never been there I did not appreciate his answer, however I have since been twice and can understand why he made that choice. The food is absolutely delicious (desserts to... More

This little Afgani BYOB is a perfect place if you want delicious authentic ethnic food and a nice quiet atmosphere. I would highly recommend it.

James Beard was once asked to make suggestions for a terrible meal. For the vegetable he chose peas and carrots. The great American chef couldn't figure out why anybody thought it would be good to mix those two. Mr. Beard obviously never ate in the Pamir. They managed to mix in some hamburger (I guess it was hamburger) and some... More
