Beer + Burger - 88 Walm Lane, 3019 7575

"I love this burger joint. The burgers and the veggie burger are amazing, as are the fries. The selection of beer on offer is staggering - it is a beer drinker's dream. The vibe is cool, and the music is great. But at the same time it is friendly and not intimidating to sit on your own and have a burger. The staff are delightful. They are engaging, warm, genuine, welcoming and enthusiastic. It is rare that a restaurant does great food, and great service, which is why I would recommend it to anyone who likes a burger".

Canaletes - 51 Willesden Lane, Willesden 8624 7004

"New tapas and wine bar run by a delightful young couple, he in the kitchen, she out front looking after guests with very friendly efficiency. Delicious Spanish cooking, with fresh ingredients, generous portions, and great value, with accompanying wines. The chicken and garlic is a personal favourite. Order a feast of different dishes to taste among a group" Member no 642 29/6/2016

Kadiri's - 26 High Road, Willesden 8459 0936

I can recommend a local Indian restaurant: Kadiri's, (not far from the big Sainsbury's but on opposite side). Their Tandoori chicken is one of my favourites. It also provides a home delivery service. Member no 92 10/3/2011

Mandalin - 65 Walm Lane  (used to be Mezzorama)

Italian style cafe and Deli - Wow. Member no 1603  15/7/2014

A deli/café with a small covered garden space at the back, it serves great coffee and cake (haven’t tried the food menu yet) and has a really nice array of old-fashioned deli-style goodies for sale. Member no 1295 5/7/2014

The Nest - Walm Lane by Station

A great coffee shop. Member no 60  8/2/2011

Nest is next to the station and is a spacious, friendly, comfortable cafe.  It has a good range of home made soups, salads , sandwiches and hot main course meals.  The portions are generous and the prices very reasonable.  The service and ambience are really pleasant .  We think it is an ideal local place to meet for drinks or lunch. Member no 215 3/2/2011

Queensbury Pub - 110 Walm Lane - 8452 0171    web

Please include the Queensbury restaurant and the Deli. I used the restaurant quite a bit when I first moved in here and was without a kitchen.  Great for Sunday lunch, and I was also well looked after when I was in there on my own.  Service excellent - they provide newspapers too.  Member no 1294 16/1/2011

Sanzio - 26 Station Parade 8830 5221           web

Excellent idea about the restaurant/café page!  We could do with a few more slightly up market eateries.  The new look Sanzio (ex Little Star) is a very good addition.  Member no 30 8/2/2011

Kilburn / Cricklewood

Kilburn Ironworks -332 Kilburn High Road

I love it here and I may have been more than a few times... The decor style is industrial with wood tables, pipe fixtures and they play a great mix of music- from Etta James to rock & hip hop. The bartenders are passionate / knowledgeable about their cocktails and they have a good range of craft beers. They have a happy hour cocktail  menu most weekdays that's worth checking out. The staff / service are friendly.

The food is delicious and they do weekly specials like taco Tuesdays and beer and burger for £10 (I think M-Th). They have excellent brunches (I'm a fan of the breakfast burger) on Friday, Saturday & Sunday (warning: you can add bottomless  Member no 1542  22/4/2017

Priory Tavern - 250 Belsize Road 0872 148 1065

A great local pub, with great food, excellent beer & cider selection (last year they held a cider festival).
