Banu at The Cranley sits in the heart of Kensington nestled within a gorgeous Victorian London townhouse on Bina Gardens. It may therefore come as a little bit of surprise that the name of the game when it comes to food is Persian cuisine. The Banu menu brings to life traditional Persian dishes with irresistible contemporary twists so you can expect intriguing options like the zereshk polo ba morgh, a chicken dish cooked with tomato and saffron sauce then topped with barberries and pistachios. As well as the Persian menu, Banu at The Cranley serves a classic British afternoon tea that’s immensely popular. Banu is best accessed from Gloucester Road Station, a breezy six-minute walk away.
