A word from Bamiyan - Citrus Heights
Bamiyan Afghan Restaurant is very unique and one of its kind. It brings the wonderful and delicious taste of the 5000-year historical world flavor in today's lifestyle.
If you haven't been to Bamiyan you don't know what you are missing!

To the Health Conscious
Afghan cuisine at Bamiyan Restaurant is a collection of authentic traditional recipes, a blend of tastes, which are exotic. Afghanistan is a land-locked country, and cooks rely on meats,
freshwater fish, vegetables, dried peas, beans, fresh and dried fruits, yogurt, noodles, rice, and a distinctive palette of seasonings. Afghans do not use butter or heavy cream in their cooking. Vegetable oil, corn oil or olive oil are used for cooking.In almost all the recipes in Afghan cooking, a small amount of herbs, spices and seasonings are used to flavor the dish and add a sensational taste, not too overwhelming.

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous meal here. We had almost forgotten about this place (possibly because we had bad service at the EDH location 4-5 yrs ago) but we were glad to find it on Open Table and get in for what was a last minute dinner for 2 on Valentine's Day weekend. We had the Mantoo as an appetizer and then we each had a lamb entree. While the meat was prepared to perfection, the eggplant and pumpkin side dishes are the real draw. If you are adventurous with food you will love the Afghani cuisine. They do have a decent variety of wines but if you like to bring your own (we did) you can pay a nominal corkage fee. As another reviewer said the location in Citrus Heights is quiet and easy to miss if you don't have the address."

  • "Delicious food! We did go on valentines day so the service was pretty slow. Plenty of wines but food was delicious. Tried the pumpkin and spinach rice with chicken kahbab and I could have taken another order to go. They have on the floor seating which looked really fun."

  • "Hidden away right in front of us! Located in a somewhat dark and rundown shopping strip on Greenback. We live about three blocks away and never noticed Bamiyan was even there. Just stumbled upon it on Open Table. What an incredible find. Warm, friendly neighborhood spot with FANTASTIC food. While the shopping mall Bamiyan is located in is kind of run down, the restaurant itself is charmingly decorated in Afghani theme, cozy and spotlessly clean. It is all delicious but do not miss the eggplant! And the special hot tea was a real treat! And the people were so nice and helpful in migrating the menu. ; )"

  • "I could eat there everyday and the food was so tasty. This restaurant needs to come to Rocklin, CA. The service was excellent. The restaurant is like a home setting."
