For me this place is great. Foods varied, excellent and reasonable price. Awesome sandwiches (though I wished they did Panini's!) Good meat and cheese section. Small but decent wine collection. Don;'t advertise it but their scrambled eggs are epic! Sometimes have to wait for a few mins when its busy but never that bad. Always a nice atmosphere
I stumbled across this place recently and thought it was new. Quite surprised it was already reviewed way back in 2008! Oh well, this is not a popular area to go for your lunch break unless you work in the neighbourhood.
Kandana offers a good choice of high quality sandwiches which at first sight appear a bit pricy. My ciabatta sandwich was the biggest ever and therefore quite a bargain at something in the region of £3.60 or so.
They also have a small amount of seats to enjoy your lunch on-site.
Part of the recent gentrification of Kensal Rise/Kensal Green, Kandana is certainly far from the usual food offering on this end of Kilburn Lane. A great deli, with an impressive selection of charcuterie and cheeses, Kandana has loads of yummy goodies to tempt you. I particularly like the fennel salami. The sandwiches are made to order and filling. The soup is tasty and warming on a cold day. Kandana also has homemade meals for you to take away, if you don't feel like cooking, as well as providing a catering service.
Kilburn Lane is sort of an odd area for an upmarket deli, but everytime I pass there are people sitting in the windows enjoying a coffee and a snack.
Superb superb superb. A great place for locals. I used to work in the area and now I live here too. This is as close to a high quality deli as it gets in this area. Fantastic sandwiches (made on the spot just for you), very good value for money and great opening hours. There are now some seats inside, though to be honest this could be improved (more comfortable seats/tablecoth/more seating). If you are new to this area or are a resident and have not tried it out, definitely try this deli. The main reason I have given it 5 stars is the quality of the produce which is excellent for the price you pay. Very friendly staff too which is a bonus. This place is great.
