Walter’s Restaurant has been an eating establishment in the Claremont Village since 1957. In 1973, Nangy and Fahima Ghafarshad took over what was then a popular hamburger and fries coffee shop and have since then transformed Walter’s into a casual fine dining establishment catering to all types of tastes and occasions. Over the 47 years in their ownership, Nangy and Fahima have created a dining atmosphere that encompasses foods from their native Afghanistan to creations they have shared with various chefs through Europe. The restaurant’s décor is filled with one-of-a-kind photographs and the art of local artists conjuring a feel of home and of the exotic. Walter’s has become a popular tradition for many in Claremont and local Southern California cities.
