Ariana II Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I love this family-run place and have done for many years. The Afghan food is seriously tasty and a wide range of meat, fish and veggie dishes are available to suit most tastes. You can bring your own alcohol and the restaurant is really handy for the Kiln Theatre and Cinema (as we must now call the Tricycle). Decor is tastefully 'ethnic', but the absolute star for me is the service provided by one of the family's daughters who frequently waits tables. She has an irrepressibly friendly and outgoing personality and makes for a very relaxed atmosphere as she chats away, whilst never failing to put a big smile on my face. I always hope she's there when I go and its not quite the same without her - she really should be on the stage...highly recommended."
