Bamiyan is on Leesburg Pike just East of Bailey's Crossroads, at the site of the long vacant Lone Star Steak House - on the service road that leads to Babies R Us and the Much Maligned Malibu Grill, next to the muffler shop.
I don't know if it has any connection to the Bamiyan in (or mabye formerly in) Old Town Alexandria. It's probably just the most common name for an Afghan restaurant.
