Location and contact

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)

Off the beaten track for sure, but the food is fresh and tasty, the vibe tranquil, and the prices really reasonable. My dishes were cooked to perfection, and again the freshness was tangible. Definitely THE place to eat in this area.

We had a family get together at this restaurant. The food was delicious & service faultless. The starters of meat meze were so nice that extra helpings were required.

Tonight we ordered a lamb dish (skewers) and also a chicken dish. Both served with rice with a topping of caramelised carrots and raisins. For accompaniments, we had the yoghurt and cucumber dish and the chutney. Honestly - I’ve eaten at a number of restaurants...More
