Popped in here for some lunch one Saturday. Restaurant was quite empty (around 2pm). Waiter was friendly and attentive. Getting a high chair was no problem. All in all we had a nice lunch and would go again.

I visited this restaurant with friends on Saturday night for dinner. The food was good and tasty. I brought wine and they were very helpful with glasses and corkscrew. Service was good. The prices were very reasonable. We were able to stay for the evening.

Despite that the staff were having electrical problems and were sorely tested and inconvenienced by this, especially in the kitchen, they managed to cater for what was an almost full restaurant, many who seemed Afghani. Consequently, some dishes were not available but we chose an...More

The first Ariana Afghan Restaurant was established 1986 in Manhattan, New York. With the success of the first branch the family thought of opening a second branch in London as a large group of the family resided here. We stumbled upon Kilburn High Road and hence Ariana 2 was established (2010)
