We had heard good things about Parwana for a while and finally had an excuse to go with friends and our kids. I must say this is a great restaurant. Terrific food, friendly service, good prices and a lovely window into life in Afghanistan with the walls scattered with photos of family and friends there. We ordered the lamb, rice,... More

I had read in Gourmet Traveller that the Banjaan Borani eggplant dish was one of the best so of course we had to make another trip to this favourite to try for ourselves. We arrived, ordered and food was on the table in minutes which is perfect for us on a week night. All the food was delicious but the... More

We got some dips but they weren't the creamy sort of types. We had a bean dip, smoky spicy tomato and a spicy eggplant one and they were more oil based if you know what I mean? Then we had spiced eggplant cooked in tomato with a mint yoghurt on top. That was their signature and it was good. And... More

Amazing food. Good service. BYO booze & cheap corkage. The eggplant & dumplings are amazing. I could pass on the meat dishes with the bread as everything else is amazing

My family and I enjoyed a delightful and delicious dinner at Parwana. We ordered almost everything on the menu. I was surprised that the spicier dishes were still tolerable for my northern U.S. palate. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very inviting. It was my last meal before leaving Australia the next morning and I will always remember the... More

Our family was celebrating a birthday and we shared several dishes. We all enjoyed the food and the friendly service. We recommend booking for 6pm. We will all return to dine at Parwana again soon.

The food at Parwana is so tasty and delicious, with subtle spicing and great flavour. We really enjoyed the entire meal, it was nice sharing all the dishes with our friends. It was a bit noisy but it all adds to the atmosphere. The service was very good and very friendly, we had a great evening and will be back.

If you want to just walk into this place expecting a seat you may want to think again, Parwana is currently a little, hidden gem, but they are always booked out. The food is absolutely amazing, and the staff are able to help you with portioning. It can be a little loud, but it has a great vibe. Would recommend!

We went with visiting relatives from UK. We were a party 50/50 vegetarian/meat eaters and everyone very happy! Eggplant, Lamb and dips were standouts. Fast and unfussy service. We were very touched when they called us to ask if we meant to leave the tip we did. Also alerted us that we dropped $5 under the table. We told them... More
