Description: 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)

Very tender food, meltingly soft lamb, unctuous aubergine, sweetly scented rice. Lovely platefuls of my favourite sort of food. This is a café style place, small tables, tightly packed with a lively variety of customers. It was full tonight, but Sabira did a great job of managing the busy floor and squeezing us in. Glad she did. We thoroughly enjoyed our food and thought it good value.

We live very close to Ariana II but had never tried it before. WE were not disappointed. The lamb shank and potato curry were excellent, and the prices were incredibly reasonable. The dough drink was also brilliant. We will be back shortly.

Everything about our experience at Ariana II was perfect. When we arrived, we were kindly greeted by a hostess and led to our table. When my partner and I sat down, we quietly remarked to each other that everything seemed perfect except that the lighting was quite bright. Two minutes later another very kind hostess dimmed the lights and created a perfect atmosphere. Our interactions with the staff throughout the evening were fun and lighthearted. Then the food arrived. It was absolutely delicious, flavorful and overall extraordinary. While we were eating, we were already planning our next visit. We wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant and are so happy to be living so close to it!

The experience was great. Food was awesome, and I have tried some new dishes and it was worth it. Will visit it every time I am in London.
Must try Aushak, Kabuli Palow, and Sultani..
Staff were very welcoming

Popped in for an early evening dinner before a gig down the road. Almost every table was booked, so obviously a popular place.

We were given a warm welcome and service was excellent throughout. Food was great: really tasty and large portions.

Bill was very reasonable and it's BYO with no corkage.

Will return when am back in the area.
