Had eaten here at lunch with friends, thought I would pick some up on the way home for dinner. Great kebabs, huge portions, lovely rice and salad. This placed is worth the visit., It gets quite busy at lunch and for takeout. I had a number!

Been going to the Bamiyan Kabob since it opened on Overlea several years ago. The food is always good. It can be very busy and loud, but that in some ways attests to its food. As would be expected service is slower when busy. The menu has a nice variety. The rice and naan that come with dinners are awesome.... More

We got in about 30 minutes before closing with a party of over 10 and the restaurant was extremely accommodating and nice. You can't go wrong with anything you get there. The meat is well prepared and cooked and the afghani rice is delicious. I highly recommend the Sultani Kabob platter.

going for many years, used to be great food/okay service, then service started deteriorating and now food is getting worse and worse with portions getting smaller every time.

Decent food. Tables fill fast. Need a better ordering system. You have to keep listening for your number, hard to do when it's full

Went for dinner at their Richmond Hill branch. Good ambience. Good kababs and other dishes like chicken korma. Their hot bread and rice served with every meal are very good. It is a self service restaurant. Your order your food, pay and wait for your number to be called out. No choice for dessert except rice firnee (rice pudding) which... More

Amazing afghan food! The kabobs are amazing, and the rice that comes alongside the kabob dinners is so tasty, it's unlike any other rice I've ever had. And the afghan bread is also to die for. But it's definitely not a relaxed place to go stay at for an hour, it's more of an in-and-out kind of place (which is... More

Went for lunch. We ordered Tandoori Chicken Kabob, Chicken Qurma and Firnee between three of us. The food, Afghani cuisine, was sumptuous and delicious.

Staying in East York

Neighbourhood Profile
East York
East York includes a portion of old, industrial Toronto. Densely populated but incredibly safe, it boasts some of the city's earliest gardens and gardening clubs, attracting green thumbs everywhere. The tranquility of the Don Valley River area, which is rich with Toronto's oldest and tallest forests, is supplemented by the large ensemble of authentic and refurbished Edwardian homes, giving parts of East York allure. The other draw is for foodies: lovers of Bangladeshi fare will find authentic restaurants and markets in the area, with raw spices and desserts. East York also represents a lot of Toronto's Serbian food culture, and recently, has had an outcropping of solid microbrewery stops. For families, the science center is a favored weekend stop.
