    Fantastic food, excellent value for money - we had a banquet and were completely stuffed by the end. The staff couldn't seem to find our booking when we first arrived but other than that the service was excellent as well. Would definitely go here again.

    We had not tried Bamiyan before and were well all glad we did. The food was excellent, it came out quickly and the staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely go again...

    Will definitely go again - lovely variety of dishes nicely presented. So good to try a new cuisine. Also saw an Afghani family eating there and that is always a great sign.

    Food was really good but a little expensive for the portion sizes. Well worth a visit though. Great neighbourhood gem. Great service and very quick service.

    We don't have this quality of restaurant near us. Each time we visit Canberra we end up here. Just love the food, service and prices are spot on. Easy to order a feast or just a little.

    The food and service are excellent at Bamiyan, and price is very reasonable for the quality. Just gets a bit noisy and you are crammed together when it is busy.

    Booked for four and we ended up being six. Everyone got variations of the lunch menus. These ranged from a main course, two entree's and a main, etc. All great sized lunches (with a soft drink) and good value. Will definitely be back.

    Our first visit to Bamiyan. We loved the food with its saffron and mint overtones. Considering that the restaurant was packed, service was quite quick. We did have to wait for a few minutes to be shown to our table, although we had a reservation. We'll certainly return at a quieter season.

    Excellent food, served quickly. Highly recommend the banquet option to experience a few different tastes. The egg plant main course was the best.

About the restaurant

5000 years of historical world flavour.

Named after a city in Afghanistan, Bamiyan is a much loved neighbourhood eatery serving quality fare at more than reasonable prices. Think traditional Afghani tikka with lamb back strap pieces, Afghani dumplings, samosa, plates of meat, rice, naan bread and more! This is a wonderful mid week meal spot for the whole family or for a feast with friends.

Best dish: Ashaak (Dumplings): Afghans favourite meal with chopped chives (Gandana) olive oil dumpling toppings with yogurt sauce, chick pea tomato and ground mince sauce and garnished with ground mint, served with salad.
