Feasting at The Grill House

Yes, we are still predominantly a no reservation restaurant. We’ve always liked the idea of you guys just rocking up and getting a table. However, we know there can be a little bit of a wait sometimes before you can get stuck into your meat trays, and we’d hate for people to be discouraged from…

OFF-MENU with Josh

ARIANA II, 241 Kilburn High Road, Kilburn, London NW6 7JN One of my favourite joints in London is the Afghan restaurant Ariana II in Kilburn.
