We recently asked members of our Facebook Group what restaurant they would like to see added to Harrow Town Centre.
The responses were varied, with some group members suggesting familiar chains, while others wanted unique, independent eateries that have branches in other parts of Harrow. It’s always interesting to get readers’ responses and find out what they’d like to see in the borough, and in particular, Harrow Town Centre.
Commenting on the post, Harrow Online Group member Karen Pillai said: “A proper plant-based eatery – not a burger and pizza place though because there are loads of those options. Why plant-based? Because we’re supposed to be phasing out farming animals. Unless you can afford private healthcare don’t clog your arteries.”
Hitesh Kothary replied: “100% also look how the plant-based restaurant scene has made hackney a destination.. also Camden, Brighton.. all plant-based destinations with sustainable and desired businesses that are independent and passionate.”
John John Jones posted: “An interesting, high-quality restaurant that could aspire to a Michelin star. Harrow is packed with low-price, low-quality cr*p.”
Some of the other responses included:
- Toby Carvery, Harvester, Miller & Carter, Pizza Hut (Susan Edwards, Janet Smith, Rita Patel, Nicola Pettitt)
- A good ramen place (Izabela Osuch)
- German Doner Kebab (Dylan Dilz Shah)
- Leon (Ceri Beckett, Tasha Jarrett)

It’s clear that there is a demand for a variety of food in Harrow Town Centre, from traditional pub grub to international street food. Some people expressed a desire for more unique and independent restaurants, while others suggested familiar chain restaurants. It will be interesting to see what restaurants, if any, decide to open in the area and whether they cater to the demands of the local community.
