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.

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)
