Pamir is a family owned & managed Afghan restaurant. Our Morristown, NJ location was voted one of the best restaurants in the state in the Readers' Choice Awards of New Jersey Monthly Magazine.


The History of Pamir


Pamir is the name of a mountainous area in Central Asia mainly in Afghanistan once along the route of Marco Polo’s Silk Road and also inhabited by descendants of Alexander the Great’s troops.

The region’s cuisine was fortunate to inherit many exotic spices and flavors of Central Asia and its surrounding countries with influence from the Far East, Middle East, Mediterranean andRussia.

Pamir Restaurant was originally opened in NYC in 1979 and has maintained the same family ownership and great recipes.

Enjoy a taste of our history!

"Authentically prepared in equally authentic and congenial surroundings."

"Pleasingly exotic, a delightful surprise for those who want to explore new pathways in nutrition."
— Cody Kendall, The Star Ledger



"There is a refinement about the flavors with fragrant notes of orange, rose water, coriander and cardamom."
— Gault Millau, The Best of New York



"A darkly exotic and perhaps even romantic meeting place. Afghan food stands alone…spicing is light rather than heavy, combining flavors like cinnamon, pepper, mint, coriander and scallions with an occasional touch of chilli pappers."
— Valerine Sinclair, New York Times


"Following a move to a "better Morristown location," this "special" Afghan BYO serves the "same great food," "full of exotic flavor," in an "upgraded" space with a "fine-dining atmosphere"...
