    Great food. Would definitely recommend and intend to visit again soon. Spices are fabulous and service was good. Reasonably well priced. Enjoyed a lot.

    Bamiyan has been consistent with its impeccable food since I have been visiting for many years now. Was devastated when they closed the Five Dock restaurant! So delighted they are back to a sparkling new contemporary venue with ample outdoor seating and local panoramic views. Staff are attentive and as always the food is the winner with its aromatic flavours, textures and detail. On our last visit on Sunday night our group had the share option which is the way to go as you try the best of what this restaurant has to offer. Looking forward to many more visits!

    I am so glad Bamiyan is back in Five Dock. It is great to the see the quality and flavour of the food has not changed. There are few additional items on the menu. The restaurant was very busy so the locals have come back on droves. The larger restaurant makes for lots more people and it can be a bit noisy on the inside but there are 2 sides to the restaurant so you can find a quiet corner. I look forward to coming back in the warmer months and the outdoor deck will be nice. Food was excellent as always.

    We loved the old Bamiyan but we love the new big bright open one too! The food is outstanding! We were all so impressed and will be back again soon to sit on the balcony when the weather warms up. Can’t wait!

    The food was delicious. The spinach and beef curry was my favourite. The restaurant has moved and the new location is lovely. I am looking forward to eating here on a warm summers night.

    This restaurant is a great find. The food was great and so was the atmosphere. There's a little corner with TV and toys for smaller children which was just great. We'll be back soon!

    Never tried Afghani food before, and I was not disappointed - delighted in fact! The waiter pointed out popular dishes that are good for people trying Afghani cuisine for the first time. All absolutely DELICIOUS!! Will definitely go back!

    Visited on a Sat afternoon and the place was quiet. We were the only customers and service was average. Food took 20 mins to arrive. However we did enjoy the naan (crispy) and dumplings.

    This was my first visit to this restaurant. The butter chicken, pallow rice and naan bread were outstanding. The service was of a high standard and the atmosphere was abuzz and made the visit very worthwile. I shall be returning sooner than later. Very nice night out

    Great place for a dinner or lunch, gets a bit noisy when full, but still ok. Is only a small place so gets cramped especially when people bring prams. We eat there often and have taken several friends, they have all really enjoyed it. Will continue to go there. Well done Bamiyan!

    Attended for my birthday and had the $40 banquet. 4 entrees and 4 mains were all tasty and filling.

    This was my second time at Bamiyan. First time was with family and we had the banquet, so I think I was more blown away by the food. This time was with a friend and the food was good, generous servings, but perhaps a bit oilier than I remembered. Service is good and it's easy to hear your conversation. Wine by the glass was good too.
