    Excellent food, as always! Skewers are divine, gravy just delicious! The only thing I would request is some seafood / more skewers variety other than lamb.

    They didnt have our booking through The Fork but luckily they were still able to seat us. This was a busy restaurant but the staff seemed very disorganised. Food was ok, no-one offered any recommendations on what to order though. Left very disappointed when they tried to charge me for another table which was 10x the bill! Terrible service.

    The food is 6 out of 5 stars, so amazing. The service is also excellent and friendly, fast and professional. So so good. Probably the best food in Canberra. Go and check it out please as you will not regret it. Vege options also and GF.

    We were happy with our experience at the Restaurant, however, my reservation through Fork had not gone through, so I will unlikely book through the Fork in future, not the fault of the restaurant but the Fork's.

    This is a loud, cheerful cafe/restaurant that serves Middle-Eastern food to die for. We went as a couple and enjoyed our selection of food enormously, but this is really a place to bring a group, to share dishes and experience lots of different flavours without eating too much. I did eat too much, but It was good and I'll be back for more.

    We aren’t locals, we came up from Sydney and were fantastically surprise by the food! It was delicious!! The waitstaff were really helpful in directing us with the dishes. If you’re a foodie you’ve gotta try this restaurant. Top notch!

    Overall the food was really good. However, one of the staff told me that we can stay for 2 hours, but the other waitress came and asked us to leave after 1 hour and half.

    Love the food, nice and tender meat. Great service. Very friendly staff. They did really well given the place was extremely busy on Friday night. Will definitely go back soon and highly recommend it to friends and family

    A disappointment. The restaurant was over the capacity of the kitchen and waitstaff to serve. We waited over 45mins for our entree. Our meal was average.

    Loads of flavour and not too hot. We ordered “mild” options.

    Fantastic flavours. We ordered the banquet as we didn’t know just what we wanted. A great selection and not overfed for two of us. Lamb dumplings and tandoor chicken highlights.

    Fantastic food with patient, attentive staff. The restaurant was busy but, although loud, the atmosphere was great. We had an option from banquet menu which was great value for money and showcased the terrific dishes well.

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.
