Jakob’s greets diners with a heaped counter of fresh and colourful dishes – roasted vegetable medleys, own-made quiches and the likes of poached salmon fillets. Takeaways are popular with Kensington locals looking for an easy dinner, while those venturing further in will find a number of candlelit tables in a room decorated with Armenian knick-knacks, and with a snug terracotta warmth that makes diners feel immediately at home. Meals are chosen at the main counter and then microwaved – any one dish costs £10.50 when combined with two vegetable sides. The house red from a limited wine list was delicious (if rather expensive at £4 for a small glass) and service was friendly without being fawning.

Although there's no sign that declares this an Armenian restaurant, it's one of the only places in London you can find Armenian dishes on the menu. Generous portions, authentically prepared, extremely flavoursome. My meal here in December was my first but won't be my last.
