The Afghan food was very good, but you do have to have a bit of an acquired taste. It is a bit hard to find, so try and go with regular visitors. Large quantities so there will be take home for the next day. Lamb is great, and the rice dishes are very interesting.

There was four of us for dinner, my brother and his wife, my wife and myself. Moses, the owner, again out did himself on the food for the four of us. We decide to eat on the patio this time, very nice and clean. Our dinners were nicely prepared along with our appetizer which was shared by all four. We... More

My wife and I probably eat here at least once a month. Beef Shammi Kebeb with spinach rice and pumpkin puree. So delicious! The pumpkin puree is practically a dessert to tastes so good. My wife enjoys the eggplant instead of the pumpkin puree. The have an online ordering option but I think it's better just to call and place... More

I reviewed this restaurant 5 years ago and my feelings remain the same. Great food and nice people! The quality is always good. Go for lunch and try the buffet of items if you are unsure of Afghani food, and the cost will be less than half the price of dinner. But we had dinner tonight and the bill was... More

This has become my favorite sushi place in EDH, though Sky is also good. They have a nice array of choices for non-sushi lovers, and delicious saki and other cocktails.

I've been here a few times for dinner. I love the interiors and the service. Food is delicious too. Too bad they are closed on Sundays or else I would have chosen this place for Mother's Day dinner.

Arrived in town late and hungry and found this restaurant on a whim. A great meal. Appetizer of spinach covered with lamb sauce was spectacular. Main course of flavored rice with lamb or chicken and pumpkin or eggplant left my wife and I thrilled with the discovery. I only wish we didn't live 3,000 miles away so we could enjoy... More

We've enjoyed meals at this restaurant for years and have always had a wonderful experience. The food is extraordinary and the prices are reasonable. It is a great way to try something exotic and eat healthy at the same time! We've brought friends and family with us to Bamiyan and everyone has always had a very enjoyable meal. If you... More

The location is beautiful. The food is fun and adventurous while also being pretty healthy (Mediterranean diet). We have been here a few times trying new things and haven't been disappointed yet. Really nice to have something like this in our area.

Simply delicious. From the moment we walked in, until the moment we left, I had completely forgotten that I had been driving all day. The service was great the meals authentic and cooked with care despite arriving shortly before closing. The rice was indeed spectacular. Be sure to order the hot Afghani tea.
