Travellers' Choice
The Kilburn High Road is a hive of activity and is filled with bustling caf��s, restaurants and bars in north London. Kish is a favourite with locals for its fresh Persian/Iranian food and cosy, neighbourhood atmosphere, and the restaurant stands out slong the strip with its huge clay oven and chef���s work bench in the shopfront window. Step inside and the walls are a deep magenta giving the space a friendly glow. The floors are tiled and the vibe here is informal ��� but Kish is suitable for business dining or fun celebrations. The menu is filled with classic kebabs and grills and we recommend the charcoal grilled lamb chops with saffron steamed basmati rice and a grilled tomato for main course

We went with a goup of frieds and family (11 of us) and found out that it has been renovated and increased in seating. The food was good specialy shishlik. Very noisy compared to last time and there was this strange annoying humming noise in...nthe back ground which we couldn't tell where it was coming from. Prices are higher than before and the service charge added is making it more expensive. Very clean and tidy.More

This place is only good for Takeaways but seriously do not ever Dine here as it is far too noisy and the seating area is horrible and the food quality and the service and is really quite bad!!

Good Persian food. Very few vegetarian options, but the veggie subji with rice was very good and came with a rice "mountain" that is impossible to finish. The Shirazi salad is very small. You can sit outside, but it's on a relatively busy street. The...waitress was nice and positive.More

Great food. The rice and chicken is amazing and will be one I will be going back to for sure. The chicken and rice simple falls off the bone.

I visited yesterday evening. The restaurant was really busy and we still had excellent service. The food was delicious and plenty of it. First time here will definitely return. Decor amazing indoors and deserts are beautiful. Thank you for the service.

Ordered from here a day prior. Food was late 2.5 hours, the order was wrong and they basically over charged me. once I contacted them to find out what is going on, the guy simply said: "oh my bad, we are just too busy. next...time we'll take care of it. ok bye" I mean what? what next time? you dont even know me. This is the second time I get food from Kish, initially the portions appear big however, you will soon find out that they tend to put 3 portion of rice against barely a skewer of grill. side dishes are charged way over price, you get 1/3 of what you might get at other (higher quality) places. They are just lucky to be located in a spot that they are in as no competition is around to serve them right. Hope Kish owners and staff are reading this, just want to tell you all "Thanks, but no thanks!" you are rude, irresponsible, you do not value your customer enough to try to at least put an effort forward. I am currently looking elsewhere for Persian cuisine and will never return to Kish.More

This is a gem in Kilburn. The bread, shish kebab, rice and mezze are second to none. I recommend the chicken shish and the smoked aubergine.

The most annoying part of our experience was how busy inside was with number of staff! Unbelievable!! We thought number of staff were more than customers. One time I counted and literally 10-11 people (not customers but staff, drives, their friends etc) were around. We...were sitting middle of their chit-chats hearing their stories and literally every 5 seconds someone was walking behind us. Very inconvenient. When we got out we found street was more quiet and relaxing!! Positives: Same food quality as always which I’d say is normal/good. Covid and safety wise they had very good setup in place and all staff wearing mask. Sanitisers on everywhere and packed cutleries etc. Big portions.More
