Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing place, food is high quality Middle Eastern. I’ve been to many countries and had authentic experiences with this cuisine, I highly recommend Durum, I’d say one of the best in London, if not the best. They’re staff are hard working and extremely attentive to...your needs, the food speaks for itself. Lovely starters before the main meal too. My favourite is the babaganoush for starters and mix kebab for mains.More

I had a very good meal last night & really enjoyed it..! I had the lamb chops and as I have an allegy to olive oil & olives they were very helpful to make sure that nothing had the this in any of my food....All the staff were very freindly and especially Aziz Emre who looked after me. For a Tuesday night it was very busy in the restaurant & for take outs, but the food arrived very quickly. The restaurant was clean & tidy and I would recommend going for a night out. I would suggest you make a reservation for the restaunt as you don't would to be disappointed...!More

I’ve been going to this little gem for many years now. I’m by all means a regular. The best quality price you will find in north london and one of the best turkish restaurants in london in my opinion.

I love this restaurant! Durum Restaurant Finchley My husband and I come here very regularly. Today I came here with members of FOODIE GROUP. We had a magnificent meal and were extremely well looked after by the very helpful Emre. Not only was the food...delicious, but the service was perfect. One of the group was not familiar with Turkish food but is now looking forward to eating it again. Excellent value for money and everything freshly prepared.More

Twenty four hours later my blood is still boiling.I went with my family 4 adults and 3 children last night We sat down and ordered food and all of a sudden the waiter said we had not ordered enough so we explained we had eaten...earlier and if it wasn’t enough food we would order more, but NO This waiter was implying our order was big enough cash wise. We had placed a £80 order but that shouldn’t matter like we said we had eaten earlier and would order more if we were still hungry.He was having none of it and said we need to order more or leave. After a small argument we left feeling humiliated,I was with my family and I felt embarrassed. I have never ever been turned away for not ordering enough regardless of the size of the order what about families that are on tight budgets at the moment.Durum restaurant shame on you you should never make any feel like you made me feel last night😡More

After our day out on Xmas Day we were glad to find Restaurants open on our way home. Friendly staff; shared a starter and mains. Enjoyed the food and rather expensive bottles of Ale. Good experience but perhaps too expensive for locale and the actual...food so unlikely to return.More

I bought a couple of chicken shish. Where should I start? The salad was a minuscule portion, stale, discoloured and limp. The bread was the worst I’ve ever had in a Turkish restaurant. Literally looked and tasted like paper. The chicken was less than a...skewer. For the princely amount of £12 each. My companion lifted the takeaway containers and asked where the rest of it was. And to top it off I got a stomach upset after eating the food. We used to patronise this and the otherTurkish place a few doors away on a very regular basis a few years ago and though I had a preference for the alternative place, I don’t remember the food being such poor quality at Durum. Standards have definitely dropped through the roof. Very sub-standard and overpriced tat.More
