I've often passed the Rose Garden and wondered what it was like inside, so I was pleased when my family booked it for a birthday celebration. The impressive decor belies the fact that this used to be a carpet shop and it's surprisingly nice place despite the location on a grubby section of the Harrow Road.
We ordered the Sini Mazeh, an assortment of five starters with some freshly baked naan bread, followed by the Sini Kebab Makhsous (mixed grill) served with large plates of buttered rice. The portions were very generous and the food was delicious.
Although it promotes itself as an Afghan and Persian restaurant the menu is mostly Persian with only three Afghan dishes. The staff were quick and efficient and coped well with the demands of our large group.
I'd definitely eat there again and would recommend it over Behesht for equally excellent food and much nicer waiting staff. They even have a Shisha Lounge upstairs for some post dinner chillaxing.
