I've eaten inside a couple of times but mostly I get a take away. I usually get a special and a separate combination. I just want to say that this is a busy establishment but the waiters are top notch, they really are. They are rushed off their feet but they are very polite and welcoming, they open the door...

The food is very good and they have a very varied menu. Service is great whether you are just having a quick lunch in or picking up a take away. Very close to South Woodford tube station and convenient.

The food here is outstanding. In particular the Mixed Grill. Huge portion, variety of meats, beautifully cooked and seasoned, and consistently excellent. Equally delicious eat in or takeaway. The service is great, the staff welcoming and friendly. There are a lot of Turkish restaurants in the area now. This is head and shoulders above the rest.

The food is amazing. I would really recommend this restaurant to lovers of Turkish food, meat dishes and people looking for good value for money. The only negative is the restaurant is a bit cramped. Nonetheless, I will certainly be going back.

Use to love this place, but sadly this has gone down hill. I ordered 4 mixed grills for a family party and historically we use to get great cuts of meat and kebab ( generous portions) to cheap cuts of meat! These cuts just fill out the box and barely have any actually meat just grilled fat! The chicken wings... More

Wings were good, service ok. Ambience - Just too loud.. Would I go back? If all the Turkish places closed... maybe ;-)

Wood Grill in South Woodford offers a great Turkish bbq/grill experience. It's a very busy restaurant - I'm more likely to order a takeaway, rather than eat in. Their mixed grill is great value - a marinated lamb skewer, a minced lamb skewer, and a grilled chicken skewer. The rice is always delicious (dripping with meat juices). A recent great... More

We came here without booking and they found us a table within 10 mins. We were part of a long table with 2 other sets of diners so it was a little loud. Food was delicious. We had halloumi cheese and hummus as the bread and dip was free for starters Main we had was the "special" which had 2... More

I love the Wood Oven. The food is great and extremely good value for money. Free tzatziki and bread with our starters. We ordered humous & garlic mushrooms which are to die for. Then a lovely chicken shish with rice and salad and my son had a pizza. The staff are really attentive. It's a busy popular place and people... More
