Afghan restaurants for hearty Sydney dining. In the mood for soulful curries, sizzling kebabs, and some haunting dishes flavoured with mint, saffron and cloves? Just visit one of Sydney’s fine Afghan restaurants. Afghanistan’s location has resulted in a cuisine blended by the rich flavours of the Middle East with the spicy offerings of India and Pakistan. Most dishes are made with mutton, lamb or chicken, with dried fruits, pomegranate and herbs often added to maximise the flavour of the dish. Afghan meals are served with either flat bread or rice and traditionally eaten communally, making Sydney’s Afghan restaurants ideal for a night out with friends or family.
