Turkish food - ok and not overpriced. Took the sharing platter for two - good selection of meat but not much eating on the ribs and chicken wings which were the bulk of the platter. Service was a bit slow considering the place was almost...More

Three of us dropped in for lunch on spec. The service was friendly and very quick, but we weren't pressured into leaving at the end even though we were quite late for the lunch trade. The flat bread with our starters was delicious, and the...More

Came here for dinner with some cousins. The food was great, we had a few starters to share, and a main each, yet still very reasonably priced. Would recommend if you're in the area.

I've used both the take away and sitting restaurant. Which I wouldn't really qualify as a restaurant but probably more a brasserie like. The people working there are nice and friendly, providing the service you expect form a take away / sitting place. It's been...More

My friends and I use this restaurant weekly. Ali & his staff make you feel welcome. You tend to get lots of London Taxi drivers in there early evening. Probably because it's such great value

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a

time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
