We probably carry out more than eat in, but the food at Zamarod is really great! The portion sizes are large and we usually get two meals out of one. The restaurant is tucked away in a Great Falls strip away from the center of...More

one rude, slow, disorganized guy to service whole restaurant...while food was fine, poor, unpleasant service negated whole point of dining out

The Afghani food served at Zamarod is outstanding. Try the Quabili Palaow or Zamarod Palaow. Also delicious, the Sombosa, Bulanee Kachalu, and Muntoo appetizers. Hummus and kabobs are excellent as well. Full bar as well, a little surprising in an Afghani restaurant. Enjoy.

We have visited Zamarod several times since our 2016 review. We have never been disappointed. If anything the restaurant gets better with each visit. More improvements should occur in a couple of weeks. The owner is adding a luncheon menu and an expanded dinner menu....More

The food here is very good. The night we went they were really crowded so service was a little slow. However, the server was very pleasant and was really trying to do his best to accommodate the crowd.

This is a restaurant. Not sure if I understood the question. I don't believe (Google also confirms), the restaurant serves breakfast.
