Dry cleaners

I note the drcleaners on Station Terrace has a new (temporary) sign, suggesting new management? It's probably a good thing - I only used the previous place once as I found it extremely expensive.

Glad to see this blog is active again. For years I checked it regularly then gave up about end of last year as it was in a period of lull for ages. Am glad I just stepped in today and was pleasantly surprised to see it's active again.

Keep it going.

I have compiled a list of things to do. Hopefully it is useful.

Gastro Pubs & Bars:

The Chamberlayne:

Great pub and steakhouse. Lively.

The Shop:

The coolest bar in NW10 by far. Small. Cocktails in jam jars. Various pop up food events throughout the year.

The Paradise. Kensal Rise.

Great pub and restaurant. Food is fab yet expensive.

The Parlour. Kensal Green.

Around the corner from The Paradise. Recently refurbished. Great pub. Lots of interesting beers. Food served all day and up to 1am at weekends. The cow pie is to die for.

The William IV

Good pub but not been for a while.

The Island:

Good pub. Recently been refurbished. New chef. Good outside area.

The Masons Arms:

Nice pub near Kensal Green station. Large outdoor space in the summer. Comedy nights and football shown.


Tong Kanom Thai. Harrow Rd.

Amazing Thai. BYO booze. Book upstairs if going Fri/Sat.

Benfica Restaurant. Harrow Rd.

Fab place for skewers of meat and prawns. Very child friendly. Only really gets busy Fri/Sat nights.

Behest. Harrow Rd.

Great Persian restaurant.

Gracelands Café. College Rd.

Lively café. Full of mums and media types. Good food.

L’Angolos. College Rd.

Great Italian Deli and small Café. Great coffee and fresh pasta.

Pomelo (Now Asian Kitchen and new owners).

Chinese and Malaysian.

Aubrey’s Café:

Station Terrace, just behind Minkies. Lovely cakes and sandwiches. Very reasonable. Oliver Peyton’s ex chef runs it.

Sacro Cuore Pizza

Great pizzas. Their sister restaurant voted best pizza in London.

Comptoir Mezze

A lovely middle eastern restaurant. BYO with a corkage.

Crazy Baker:

Artisan bakers with a café in the basement.

Taste of Chamberlayne:

Lovely café/coffee shop. Children’s play area in the basement.

Island On The Rise:

Jerk chicken and other favourites. Best Caribbean restaurant and take away. Quite hidden on Station Terrace.

Eat Sushi:

Decent Japanese takeaway on Station Terrace.


The better of the Japanese takeaways. Quite expensive.


Lovely deli near The Paradise. They sometimes open a pop up restaurant at the weekends.


Probably the best Indian in Kensal. Some locals love it.


The Lexi Cinema:

Great local cinema. Serves wine. All profits to Africa.


Dock Kitchen:

Not technically Kensal but practically is. Good restaurant and coffees. Nice outside space near the canal. Tom Dixon shop underneath. Notting Hill set.

Vinjay. (Willesden Lane, Kilburn).

Best curry house by a mile.

Kadiris (Willesden High Road):

My favourite Indian restaurant. Great food. No alcohol though.
