On a Friday lunchtime after the weekly call to prayer at the adojining Masjid Al-Taqwa mosque, this small yet lively diner pulses with neighbourhood charm. There’s animated conversations and gossip being exchanged of course, but most importantly, there’s also eating.

The diverse offerings at Afghani Kebab House are inspired by the peripatetic life of its owner-chef Mohammed Fayazi. Born in Afghanistan, Fayazi lived in Pakistan before eventually emigrating to Australia.

On the menu, bubbling Afghani lamb curries sit alongside Pakistani biryanis and a delicious stuffed Afghan bread known as bolani. A particular favourite is the kabuli palaw, a fragrant and juicy lamb shank served on a bed of aromatic rice, sprinkled with sultanas and carrots. Scoop it up with scrumptious Afghan bread fresh from the clay tandoor oven and finish with a cup of sugary tea.
