    We were looking for something a little different to celebrate my Brother's birthday and decided to try Bamiyan in Braddon. I was more than pleasantly surprised. We had the banquet 1, and chose the butter chicken and Beef kofta for our 2 mains. The food was delicious. Very tasty without being overpowering or too spicy. The service was great, very welcoming and friendly. I will definitely go again. A little gem in the heart of Beraddon.

    We have dined here a number of times and love it, but this time it felt over crowded and the staff too busy to be attentive. The food is always great quality.

    Had a nice dinner for two. The entree 'big naan' was not very tasty and was under salted. But the mains, lamb skewers and daal sabzi, much better. Although the daal was also under salted. Lamb was very tasty, good generally good, good portions.

    The worst restaurant to go with kids, I have never seen a restaurant in Australia in this way to deal with family. So it isn’t a family friendly place. They kept annoying my family until we left the place before we eat. It is very crowded and small place that they have fitted so many tables in it. They are not updating their booking system according with the app. The app says they have tables, and when you are on your way they call and say we don’t have a table for your reservation. And when we arrive there, you have to wait until a table is empty and after long wait with your family and kids start to get tired, they treat you so badly so you leave the place with your kids.

    Delicious food with lovely flavors. Meat skewers were substantial and very tender. Value for money, attentive service and a cheerful atmosphere .

    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.

    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!

Additional information

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.
