Great surrounds, great location, superb food. A slice of the Middle East in our backyard. Always a delight to eat at Marco Polo, large or small groups.

I visited this restaurant in July 2016 upon recommendation by acquaintances. Not expecting that it truly was amazing. I went with work friends and the restaurant was at full capacity. I was unsure what to choose so we all chose a dish each and shared to get a taste of the others. The food was delicious and much more than... More

We were shown to a very nicely decorated room/ restaurant, and given a lovely table. The staff were pleasant but could have been more attentive. We chose a selection of dishes which were not identifiable as one cuisine, rather other dishes one has met before. It was enjoyable and expensive.

On our previous visit to the Marco Polo, the food was excellent but the service unsatisfactory. This time our visit was a very pleasant dining experience. The waiters were prompt, helpful and efficient.. All four of us were highly-satisfied with the food: the dips for entree, the Munto, the National Dish and a fine vegetarian meal. The cost was roughly... More

We went there for dinner on a Sunday night and it was quiet. We ordered the mixed entree and fries. We loved the fries, the best we ever had. For main, we ordered 4 different meals. I loved mine but hubby mixed grill/meat platter was a let down and too pricy for what he got. The rice is cooked to... More

We had the mixed entrees to share as a starter and this dish was delicious and fairly priced. For main I had the Dahl Korma Chalow which was ok, like something you quickly throw together at home when you can't be bothered cooking. However it lacked spice and at $24 was seriously overpriced, after all it is just lentils and... More

We had a fantastic time. I love any type of different cultural dining experience and this ticked that box for me. The restaurant is small and quaint in size. The food was super tasty. The whole family loved it and we all had a blast with the Afghan Shisha pipes in the funky back room.

First experience having Afgan food. Very different but so tasty. I recommend the mixed entree as good introduction. A great way to finish with the yummy sweet topped with Persian floss.
