“You genuinely can’t go wrong” with the “good honest Turkish cooking and mezze dishes” at these two “great-value” stalwarts in Islington. “They’ve made an effort to Ottomanise the decor, so you feel you are eating in a proper restaurant rather than a café-type mangal grill”, and it’s a great choice for a festive night out on a budget.

Good honest turkish barbecue food they have...
Reviewed 10 months, 22 days ago

"Good honest turkish barbecue food they have made an effort to ottomanise the decor, which sometimes works. You feel you are eating in a proper restaurant rather than a cafe type mangal grill which is the default local setup for this type of restaurant."
