Just moments from the station in Melbourne’s Dandenong is an outpost of one of Central Asia’s lesser-known cuisines. Afghan Rahimi is a purveyor of Afghani cuisine, which already is a kind of fusion cuisine, and you’ll find many items on the restaurant’s menu familiar if you’re a fan of Middle Eastern, northern Indian, Pakistani and even Nepalese and Chinese food. The two head chefs have over 30 years combined experience bringing their nation’s crossroads cuisine to life, and indeed Afghan Rahimi’s Walker Street address is a default destination in the neighbourhood for those wanting an exotic meal. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian options abound, from dumplings and chargrilled kebabs to spiced rice dishes and curries. Best bet is to opt for one of Afghan Rahimi’s banquets, furnishing you with a full voyage of discovery through Afghani culinary culture.
Absolutely beautiful and made sure we got to the concert on time. Everyone loved the food and looking forward to returning soon. Excellent value for money.
