“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.

Reviewed 4 months, 15 days ago

"Sumak is by far and away the best Turkish restaurant in the area extending from Crouch End, through Hornsey to Harringay Green Lanes, where the preponderance of actually Kurdish-owned restaurants are located in North London. The welcome is always warm and friendly, as is the service, so that staff make local regulars such as my partner and I feel extremely welcome and at home over our delicious dishes and free post-prandial Turkish tea. The menu features a wide range of mainly meat options for the main course, but also features fish dishes and a wide range of vegetarian options particularly for starters / as a meze. The amateurish murals of famous tourist attractions around the world might be typical of Turkish restaurants in North London, but aren’t in the least stylish - at least their presence is now leavened by prettier rugs hanging on the walls and some actually quite stylish lighting and crockery. Still, one doesn’t go to Sumak for the interior decor, but for the delicious food and friendly service…. Booking is recommended for Friday and Saturday evenings, which get really busy."

Reviewed 11 months, 19 days ago

"Sumak continues its reign as the best Turkish restaurant in Crouch End / Hornsey / Harringay, beating not-so-stiff opposition from the large number of predominantly Kurdish-run restaurants on nearby Harringay Green Lanes. Dishes from the extensive menu are always well-presented and deliciously cooked, whilst service is very friendly - my partner and I have recently been upgraded to the status of 'like family'! The Turkish decor of not brilliantly executed murals of tourist spots around Europe and Turkey has recently been softened by the addition of traditional wall mounted rugs, whilst the lighting has been upgraded, so it even looks a little more stylish. Very highly recommended, although best to avoid peak service on A Friday or Saturday evening around 8pm, when the kitchen can become a little stretched."
