Bamiyan is a city in central Afghanistan with a reputation for stunning scenery, cultural heritage and spectacular food. The location of the city at the heart of the ancient Silk Road ensured constant interaction and mixing of cultures, and that has lead to a reputation as one of the meeting points of Indian, Persian and Chinese cuisine, resulting in a native Afghan style of cooking that endures to this day. Bamiyan Restaurant brings a taste of this to Sydney, with a menu filled with Afghan classics. Begin your meal on Old Northern Road in Dural with a steam dumpling stuffed with beef and chopped chives, before moving onto the traditional Afghan pallow rice, flavoured with cumin and cardamom and cooked with chicken, carrots, sultanas and nuts. Throw in a few fresh naans and a saffron ice cream to finish and you’re well on the way to a great meal at Bamiyan on Old Northern Road in Dural.
Amazing cuisine, and polite and friendly service, make for a great dining experience. I’m always impressed by a waitress who can take an order for 8 people without writing anything down and deliver it to perfection.
Really enjoyed the banquet menu. Good choices and quantity was perfect for us. Our third or fourth time here and we will return. Price and range of wines also very acceptable.
Great food. Good service too. On weekends you will have to book because it can get chockers. Meals are good value and the flavours are exceptional.
