“Continuing its reign as the best Turkish restaurant in Crouch End, Hornsey and Harringay, beating all opposition in nearby Green Lanes”: the “fantastic food” comes with “unlimited, sumac-spiced breads and delicious salads”. It “even looks a bit more stylish” since the installation of wall hangings and better lighting.

“Seriously tasty Turkish cuisine”“a real cut above” and “very well priced” – wins high ratings for this popular Crouch End fixture. “The welcome is warm, service is efficient, and the decor is typically Turkish (murals and slightly glitzy floor tiles)”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Sumak is a wonderful Turkish restaurant on ...
Reviewed 4 months,

"Sumak is a wonderful Turkish restaurant on the border of Crouch End and Hornsey. It has been doing a roaring trade since it opened several years ago and is far superior to the vast majority of Turkish / Kurdish eateries on the nearby Haringey Green Lanes. As long-standing regulars, my (Turkish) partner and I are treated like friends when we arrive and embarrassingly, the waiters know my favourite dish without me having to order it – sarma lamb beyti, if you’re wondering. The menu features an extensive range of meat, fish and vegetarian soups, hot and cold mezes and main dishes, all beautifully prepared and well presented in the open kitchen running down one side of the kitchen. Turkish flatbread from the grill is a delicious appetiser. Complimentary Turkish tea and lokum are always welcome at the end of the meal. The wall murals of popular Turkish tourist sites may not be the most statically accomplish murals you will ever see, but the cooking is right up there with the best Turkish restaurants in London. Not the cheapest Turkish restaurant in North London, but definitely one of the best and very highly recommended. The extensive seating area make socially distanced dining easy to achieve at all but peak periods on a Friday or Saturday evening, when it is best to book ahead."
