Featured Kentish Town Restaurants
1. E Mono Turkish restaurant in Kentish Town 285-287 Kentish Town Road - NW5
The “exquisite kebabs” at this family-run Turk in Kentish Town (which takes its name from the original Victorian sign above the door) have “set the standard in north London for years”. Don’t be put off by the “limited menu and basic amenities (more like a local chippy)” – the food is “fresh, good quality and delicious”, while “service is cheerful”.
2. East West Pizza restaurant in Tufnell Park 135 Fortess Road - NW5
2022 Review: Adding Indian spicing to pasta and crispy Italian pizza explains the name of Devinder Singh’s Tufnell Park venue, which opened in Spring 2020. Early bird feedback suggests it's a concept that ‘has legs’.
3. Authentique Epicerie & Bar French restaurant in Tufnell Park 114-116 Fortess Road - NW5
“Like a French tapas bar”, this Tufnell Park showcase celebrates the wines (700) and beers (75) of the French-speaking world, with themed dinners highlighting produce from 12 regions in rotation. “As the name suggests, food is secondary – decent, but basically an accompaniment to the outstanding selection of reasonably priced wines”.
4. Fields Beneath Vegan restaurant in Kentish Town 52a Prince of Wales Road - NW5
2019 Review: Beneath Kentish Town station, this well-established and cosy neighbourhood café “recently went all-vegan” and the change has been a hit – “it still produces great coffee” and light dishes that are “always delicious”. “It just needs more space!”
5. Anima e Cuore Italian restaurant in LONDON 129 Kentish Town Rd - NW1
“Behind an unprepossessing facade, on an equally unprepossessing part of not-quite-Camden, not-quite-Kentish Town, lie gastronomic delights from Italy” conjured up in a tiny kitchen by Moroccan-Italian Mustapha Mouflih, a chef who “combines high-quality ingredients with imagination”. “Even if the ambience is somewhat chaotic and basic, at best, the cooking is wonderful” (“the ravioli, malfatti, tortellini and so on are of a freshness and stuffed with flavours you would otherwise have to get on a plane to find”).
6. The Parakeet British, Modern restaurant in Kentish Town 256 Kentish Town Road - NW5
Former Brat chefs Ben Allen and Ed Jennings opened this "culinary-led pub" (FKA gastropub) in March 2023, serving “locally sourced, seasonal dishes” cooked over flames.
