The “exquisite kebabs” at this family-run Turk in Kentish Town (which takes its name from the original Victorian sign above the door) have “set the standard in north London for years”. Don’t be put off by the “limited menu and basic amenities (more like a local chippy)” – the food is “fresh, good quality and delicious”, while “service is cheerful”.

“It is simple and basic”, but this family-run Turkish fixture in Kentish Town (named for the original Victorian sign on its building) is renowned locally for “utterly delicious and authentic” kebabs. “Well worth a visit, even after so many years”“it is what cheap and cheerful is all about”.

“Succulent-tasting kebabs” at this “great value”, family-run Turkish joint (which adopted its name from the original Victorian signage) were “recommended by Giles Coren” some years ago – and our reporters have consistently backed his judgement: “their success is deserved”.

For 33 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).
