Good eateries are rare on Kilburn’s ancient High Road, so enticed by good reports, we ventured into this delightful, family-run Afghan restaurant, clutching our bottles of wine (they have no licence). We were easily seduced by the aubergine Baudinjan Buranee, which was nicely complemented by the Spinach Samosas and Salad Olivieh, our choices for the 3-starter Special Maza combo. Kebabs comprise generous portions of tenderly marinated, chargrilled pieces of chicken and lamb, while the pumpkin curry was richly aromatic and golden. Everything comes with the most gorgeously buttery saffron rice (brown basmati, which makes for a pleasing change) and salad – although like most Middle-Eastern lettuce-tomato-cucumber side salads, this was something of an afterthought. Sadly we didn’t have space for dessert and our lovely server, Samira, had to wrap our leftovers for us to take away – for a delicious light lunch the day after. The best news is that if you’re feeling lazy, Ariana II does deliveries.
