“Tasty, good-value Turkish food” and “a warm welcome” make these “jolly” (lots of “dangly decorations”) Ottoman-themed stalwarts just “the sort of bistro you’d be pleased to have near you”.

“Real old Upper Street favourites”, these Ottoman-themed Turkish cafés are “buzzy, bustling and loud – so you have to be in the right mood”. Arguably the cheap scoff is a tad “routine” nowadays, but on most accounts, you still get “plentiful food at reasonable prices” and a fair dose of “fun”.

These “intimate, bazaar-style” Turkish cafés with “over-the-top” Ottoman-themed décor are just a few doors apart on Islington’s main drag. From “excellent mezze to breakfast” the scoff’s “serviceable and good value” (and “far better than you might expect”).
