Melbourne isn’t short of great cafes and that’s no secret, but Samadi’z Cafe Restaurant is a little bit different, not least because of the Afghan-inspired menu on offer. It’s a no frills establishment – set back off Douglas Street in Noble Park, a stone’s throw from Noble Park train station – with an emphasis on getting the simple things bang on. A refreshing approach, we’re sure you’ll agree. Diners can start with some curious ashak, chive dumplings topped with fresh yoghurt and mince meat, or some classic garlic prawns with a tangy lime marinade. For your main, why not try qabuli? Slow cooked basmati rice topped with carrot, sultanas and tender lamb shank. Samadi’z is tasty and relaxed, so what are you waiting for? Reserve a table now.
