The food and service was absolutely spectacular. I wish I would have taken a photo, but it was all gone before I had the thought to do it. We sat in a cozy and private table, and our server was attentive and kind.

Food was very authentic and fantastic! So was service – our server was very courteous and nice. We already bought another Groupon to go back again!

Great food and experience. The menu explained all the dishes. People were wonderful too. I highly recommend this place

This Afghani restaurant is an absolute gem. I have been to this restaurant multiple times over the past 10 years and each visit has been highly satisfactory, serving delicious food and providing excellent service. My favorite appetizer is aushak – the delicious and delicate, silken thin raviolis filled with scallions and served in a beautifully seasoned light yoghurt sauce. A non-vegetarian option with ground beef also is available. My main course of choice is the was vegetarian platter with rice and consists of fragrant, savory spinach, butternut squash, and eggplant "stews" accompanied by fragrant rice topped with sautéed raisins and carrots strips – a comfort food with the enhancement of eastern spices. My dining partner had a tender lamb stew, perfectly cooked and with depth of flavors and plenty of sauce. That dish also was served with the signature rice dish. Bamian has a beautiful décor with crystal chandeliers – well suited for a banquet but also individual diners.

About Bamian Restaurant

Bamian Restaurant gained the attention of The Washington Post in 2006 when its traditional Afghan cuisine drew in an Afghan ambassador and embassy staff from Kuwait and Qatar. Plates teem with housemade flatbread prepared in a tandoor oven and kebabs grilled over open flames, earning the restaurant a "very good to excellent" Zagat rating. Vegetarian items include the sautéed pumpkin with yogurt and mint and hummus dusted with paprika.

The interior of Bamian Restaurant is elegantly decorated with leopard-print chairs in the foyer and sparkling chandeliers in the dining room. Gayot describes the restaurant as "large-as-a-barn and gussied up like a deb ready for a coming-out party." The large space includes a full dance floor, which lends itself to hosting large parties, wedding receptions, and rehearsal lunches to practice for dinner.
