eating out


Eating out in Harrow tends to be a rewarding experience. Because of the wide variety of cultures represented and the price ranges catered to, you can get pretty much, whatever your belly desires.

You'll find the highest end eating places in Hatch End, strung out along the high street between the posh decorating stores, and ranging from indian, to Greek, to French.

Generally, Pinner, Stanmore, and central Harrow is a more moderate, featuring Italian chains and some high-end restaurants, balanced by local greasy-spoons and cheap pubs.

City-Visitor.com has search facility that will allow you to search for restaurants in and around Harrow. It currently lists around 133 restauarants

Two other interesting eating destinations are Station Road between central Harrow and Wealdstone, and Harrow-on-the-Hill. Station Road has a wide variety of price ranges and cuisines, featuring French, Italian, Chinese, and Indian - especially good are the restaurants featuring vegetarian Indian especially Sakonis and the dim sum at the Golden Palace Restuarant (reported to be the best outside of ChinaTown). you might expect the restaurants on the hill to be posh and exclusive, but they tend to offer good quality food at reasonable prices.

Rose's sandwich bar/take away in Wealdstone
As is typical for Wealdstone (kebab pizza, anyone?), Rose's isn't loyal to any one national cuisine. In fact, Rose's crosses Thai café and English greasy spoon, and in case that doesn't offer enough variety, throws in a little Chinese and Filipino. Every table was occupied with groups of young people on their lunch breaks and the occasional retiree, who were eating mainly from the Thai portion of the menu. I had vegetables in a red curry sauce, and it was fantastic, with perfectly cooked veg and a sauce spicy enough to make you sweat, but without causing excessive pain.

Grill bar on Watford road, past Northwick Park Hospital
It's a good thing that the grill bar is a 30-minute walk from central Harrow - you could drive there, but you really shouldn't because you need to work up an appetite to manage getting the American-sized portions down. Even before you've looked at the menu, they start you off with a loaf of Giabatta and a salad with greens, tomato, whole garlic cloves and roast peppers. While consuming this, you can choose from a menu of meat, fish, or veg, all of which will be grilled, and is usually delicious - the portabella mushrooms are especially good. You most definitely won't have room for pudding, but have it anyway, because it's so good - soft serve ice cream with chocolate sauce, marshmallows, and various sweets on the side - and because you're going to feel like you've eaten too much no matter what. Besides that, you should have a bit of a walk ahead of you.
