“Still the best Turkish BBQ in town”, say fans of the original Mangal grill that put Dalston on the carnivore’s map. “I’ve been coming here for over 20 years and it’s still one of my all-time favourite restaurants. Never fails with great food and excellent service”. BYO helps keep the costs down.

“The best shish kebabs”“juicy”, “melt-in-the-mouth tender” – all cooked in “the marble-clad pit in the middle of the room” are “the genuine article” and have won renown for this Turkish grill in Dalston. And it’s “good value” too, aided by the fact that you can BYO. “After 20 years I still go here every week, and it never fails to impress!”

“Absolutely the best kebabs this side of Istanbul” have turned this Turkish grill into a “Dalston institution” over 20 years. “Exceptional meat from the barbecue” is backed up by “good salads and BYO (keeping the price down)”. “Despite the proliferation of Mangal offshoots, the Arcola street original is still the best!”

"Still a solid option in this part of town, the meats are up there with any of the other restaurants on the Dalston/Stoke Newington trip, and the staff try their hardest with the crowds. 14/20"
