A word from Bamiyan - El Dorado Hills
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! Rated #1 of the top 10 Restaurants in 2009 by the Sacramento Bee! 2010 Best of Sacramento Dining Awards 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The place was empty except for us on a Thursday night. We were there for almost 3 hours and no one else came in other than one couple. Food was average at best for the price. I had much better food elsewhere."

  • "My daughter and I had a delicious dinner on the patio beside a fountain. The food was great -- lamb kebabs, eggplant, spinach, and some wonderful dumplings. The server was gracious and attentive. This place is a gem!"

  • "My son had a high school assignment try a new culture of food and write a paper... Since the weather was bad we tried the closest place that sounded interesting. We were surprised to find that we have driven past it many times; just didn't know about them. The ambiance was nice and we were welcomed as soon as we arrived. We tried the traditional guest meal (to get a portion of all the classic dishes) and could not find anything we didn't enjoy... It was great to find out that they make everything we tried from scratch and that they used organic chicken... Everything had good flavor, yet nothing was spicy... We were blown away by the sauteed eggplant and freshness of all the dishes. We will DEFINITELY be back."

  • "My girlfriend has been wanting to eat at this place for awhile, so I made reservations on Valentines Day. Neither of us had ever had Afghan food before either - but we're adventurous. What wonderful food! We started with champagne (a Valentines special), Ashak as an appetizer, which was delicious! Then onward to my love's seafood combination and my Kabeli Palow, which is a special rice that I had with lamb and pumpkin puree (the puree was fabulous). Desert was rice pudding and Afghan tea. There isn't enough room to describe the wonderful dishes and the terrific service. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly - I just hope that they don't get so busy that it's hard to get a table! I look forward to trying more of their menu!"

  • "It was very quiet. Everything was delicious and the staff was attentive without being overbearing. The outdoor dining was nice with the lamps on."
