The Kilburn High Road is a hive of activity and is filled with bustling cafés, restaurants and bars in north London. Kish is a favourite with locals for its fresh Persian/Iranian food and cosy, neighbourhood atmosphere, and the restaurant stands out slong the strip with its huge clay oven and chef’s work bench in the shopfront window. Step inside and the walls are a deep magenta giving the space a friendly glow. The floors are tiled and the vibe here is informal – but Kish is suitable for business dining or fun celebrations. The menu is filled with classic kebabs and grills and we recommend the charcoal grilled lamb chops with saffron steamed basmati rice and a grilled tomato for main course.

Tried to eat here. Was waved to a table for two. One of the chairs was right next to a massive plant making it impossible to sit down. We left. Seems like they were too busy to care.more

We were a goup of 6 on a Tuesday night at 8 and the place was quite full. This was a good sign.

The menu is diverse with very good prices too. We chose an assortment of starters to share followed by 5 mains and then about 4 desserts. There is...more

According to one of the local London newspapers recently, 'Kish' in Kilburn was voted second-best takeaway restaurant in the whole of the UK. And after just one meal, I can see why!!!

Let's cut to the chase here.

The food is Persian, and is formatted into hot and cold starters, main courses, a separate special-mains, and some bits and bobs on the side, like bread, dessert and drinks etc....more

Kish is another local place I ignored for too long. I was there about a week ago and wanted just a little snack. The herbs omelette kind of starter I had was not really my thing, but the bread I had with it was very delicious. And I was overwhelmed by my main course. Lot's of juicy and tasty chicken with even more of delicious rice. So if you're after a not expensive but very good chicken dish...more
