  • Kabuli Experience

    Keep your pockets full and stomachs empty wen you come in!!!!

    Never visit this place. There are lots of better places in bangalore where you can get better food for lesser price. Staff is pathetic....

  • Kabuli Experience Mar 07, 2014

    I would start by saying I loved the food here....Though it is a little highly priced but it is definitely one of the must try restaurants in the city.It is on a busy road, Samarkand's ambience will leave you dumbfounded. Everything about the restaurant screams culture. The soft n juicy paneer tikkas, varieties of munchy eatables for free n colorful chutneys and to die for BIRYANI. Only down side was the raan. It was not cooked to perfection.....The service is prompt and friendly and they help you with what to choose too....You might have to book tables for yourself on a weekend....But other than... read more

  • Horrible!! Very bad experience Jan 01, 2014

    Horrible!! Had very bad experience. No Quality food served anymore. When we asked to make spicy starters, some chat masala powder and chilli powder was sprinkled on them. I don't understand why they charge so much when they cannot keep up the quality. Very bad staff... there was not even a Sorry that came out from anybody when we complained. Shameless!!!

    I will never visit this place anymore and would recommend my friends not to visit this place...

  • The best biryani in Bangalore May 28, 2013

    Definitely one of the must try restaurants in the city. Located on a prime road, Samarkand has an ambience to look out for. Everything about the restaurant is near perfect. The succulent paneer tikkas, the colorful free munchies, the myriad colorful chutneys and the Oh so heavenly gosht ki biryani. Seriously this is the best lamb biryani i have ever tasted in my life. I was so wowed by the smell and taste of it that i coerced my vegetarian friends to taste the rice bit at least. The service is prompt and friendly. The prices are definitely justifiable.

  • Superb place but expensive May 24, 2013

    Another great yet expensive restaurant from BJN Group. I love the ambience and their seating arrangements. Being a non veg, I could enjoy all their kabab's and super delicious starters. Chicken and mutton were very tasty.
    Must visit even for veg people as their Veg kabab's are also good :)
    Give them a visit and you will never regret :)

  • Good Afghani Food May 02, 2013

    Went to this place for the first timeand the chef didn't disappoint us. Barra kabab was great, felt like the one you have in Karim's , Delhi. A little disappointed with the "Raan", it was a bit under-cooked but had the spices and flavors.

    The biryani and the mutton curries were great. I would recommend that you have only the mutton dishes rather than going for chicken, the mutton gravies over shadow the chicken ones.

    Over priced though, and a lot goes on taxes. I expect them to improve on the "Sikander Raan" next time.

  • Good food! Mar 15, 2013

    Me and my family love this place, and being vegetarians, we are able to get good variety of stuff to eat here. Their vegetarian kebabs are really good! I love their phirni, very well made!

  • Lamb is their forte Mar 04, 2013

    Samarkhand has been around for a while now, a restaurant that took the Bangalore culinary scene by storm simply because of their major focus of tandoori style food centers around the highly underutilized lamb rather than chicken as is the case in most restaurants in Bangalore.

    Boasting some of the most succulent lamb preparations i can go out on a limb to say the quality of the Raan here is unparalleled anywhere in India the softness of the meat and the quality of the preparation have always been above par. Though i would criticize that their preparation of their chicken based tandoori

  • "Royal Afghani" Feb 26, 2013

    Samarkhand has been around for a while now, a restaurant that took the Bangalore culinary scene by storm simply because of their major focus of tandoori style food centers around the highly underutilized lamb rather than chicken as is the case in most restaurants in Bangalore. A good change from standard Indian/Mughlai cuizine
    Good interior and decor!!!
