Our journey began in 1986 Manhattan New York, where the first branch of Ariana welcomed guests to fine authentic Afghan dishes. The success of the first branch paved the way to open a second in London. Our search led us to the vibrant and multicultural Kilburn High Road, hence the birth of Ariana II (2010).
Ariana II is a family-owned restaurant, which offers a full array of cultivating and aromatic Afghan dishes for your dining pleasure.
Enjoy the mysteries of Afghanistan’s delicately delicious dumplings topped with natural yoghurt and mild lentil sauce. Savour our Afghan style kebabs, marinated with herbs and spices, broiled with fresh onions and peppers. Choose from a large selection of Vegetarian and Vegan dishes, all cooked with fresh sauces and herbs or go for the iconic Kabuli Palow (a melting, slow-cooked lamb shank buried in a mound of traditional Afghan rice shrouded in caramelised carrots and raisins).
A multi award-winning experience awaits you. (Winner of London Love Awards, Cheap Eats Awards, Nominee for the British Kebab Awards, reviewed by Financial Times, Timeout and The independent).
