We had a delicious, flavorful meal at Afghan Gallery. Our server helped us select a good mix of dishes for our group of 4 and we devoured everything. We will be back the next time we are in Melbourne.

Took a bit of a punt on this one having never tried or heard about Afghan food, to be honest my daughter just wanted "some kind of soup" for dinner (7 year olds!!!) anyway passing this menu with soup as its first item and we were sold! Had the place to ourselves which was lucky as we took our time... More

While visiting Melbourne recently and organising dinner with a group of friends I asked one "would you prefer to go to an Afghan or Ethiopian Restaurant?" She chose Afghan and, by the end of the dinner I think everyone was glad she did. I have never been to Afghanistan, so can't compare what we ate to anything you might get... More

Food was very tasty and the waiter was extremely friendly, but still left you to enjoy the experience on your own. The pilaf was the highlight, and the Afghani ice cream with saffron for dessert was pleasantly surprising.

We stumbled across this amazing restaurant when visiting Melbourne. I have to say it was a highlight to our visit. The food was amazing, we were upstairs in the tent party area & it was such a unique experience. Arid & his family are wonderful hosts.. will definitely return when back in Melbourne. Definitely a favorite.

Went here for a midweek meal with a friend after reading great reviews. Food was excellent, especially the eggplant dishes. Banquet is excellent in value and variety. Waiter was the owner of the restaurant and very attentive, giving great advice on the dishes. Great afghani decor and real ambience. Also quiet enough for real conversations - a find amongst the...

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
