My first try at Persian food and it was amazing. You MUST try the kebabs. Appetizers were excellent especially the Aushack. Warm and friendly, the owner came to our table. She was awesome. Great experience I'll be coming back.

Full disclosure--I have been to Bamiyan before the new owner took over. This place had good food before, but now it is AMAZING. The portions were huge (we got the veggie combo where you get to pick 2 different dishes). We ordered 2 of them, so we got to try 4 different dishes. The eggplant is great as are the chickpeas. And the shir-chay is different but still delicious. The new owner came over as we were finishing up our meal and she is just lovely. She also sent us over a taste of a dessert to try on the house. Check this place out!

This used to be my favorite restaurant of all time. For a couple of years I would dine in and/or take out a number of times each month. Since moving, I couldn't only get it rarely. I haven't been in a year, and I am sad to report that this is not the same place. Kadu (pumpkin turnovers) were my FAVORITE. The ones I had last night had Maybe a tablespoon of filling in a larger different shell. It was so disappointing. The fensenjen (pomegranate chicken) was ok. It was definitely prepared differently, but it wasn't bad. Their rice is different, but it was good.

I took more friends to Bamiyan and it was embarrassing. A new and less interesting menu, tiny portions of ill prepared food shivering on large cold plates. It was one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had in this country. The (lovely) woman serving us explained that the restaurant was under new management. Too too bad. That place was great and it used to have the excellent and hard to come by noodle dish: Aush.

recently spent aout three hours here with friends, drinking, eating, and talking. We had a pleasant table, excellent wine, and good food. I had eaten here before and had been pretty unimpressed, perhaps because I'd ordered timidly. This time I ordered a kidney bean and noodle dish from the "pasta" section of he menu. It was satisfying: spicy sauce, plump beans, and succulent soft noodles.

The food is is dry, bland, and overcooked. Not reccomended.

Food was either bland or so salty it had to be returned. I have never had such a poor meal and would never go back! Service was gracious
