What a great place to eat. Sadly only discovered it the night before we were due to return to the UK, Lamb Korma just melted in your mouth. We visited as a family group and were not disappointed . For a restaurant so small it was packed to the rafters, and we had booked our table for opening time at... More

Touring the Mornington Peninsula with friends this was a great discovery, very tasty food served and our waitress could clearly explain each dish. We were not disappointed in trying a different style of food. Would definitely return.

We were excited by the look, feel and atmosphere of this restaurant, it was busy, clean and inviting, sadly our experience was to be marred by what followed. I ordered Lamb cutlets only to be told 20 minutes later that 6 other guests had ordered them and there was none left. I opted for the lamb kebabs. Some 20 minutes... More

We went here for Dinner. Unlike other Afghan restaurants in Melbourne there did not seem to be a set menu on for two people so we ordered two mains and an entree. The entree was a bit of a let down it was a mixed platter which seemed to lack that punch and spice afghan food has. The mains faired... More

The Afghan certainly had atmosphere but at the time we visited the food list was reduced to mains as they were too busy, with - I think - take-aways. However the service was quick and efficient and the cost very reasonable. The food was different and quite good and portions were certainly large. The wine list was good also. It... More

The food is amazing and there's a wonderful variety of breads, pastas, rice, meat, chicken and vegetarian dishes on the menu. Go with a group and order to share. The pictures and photos of Afghanistan covering the walls create a unique atmosphere. It's a great place to go for a casual dinner or a special occasion.
