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.

I haven't been here since Arsenal moved to new stadium in 2006 Nice to be back Food still proper authentic Turkish delicious and service so warm and friendly BUT Expensive for what it is. Yes of course I appreciate that prices have gone up since...2006 like everywhere else, but I don't think £5 for a coke is reasonable even in today's market Lunch came to £80 for two and we didn't have desserts Tissues as napkins and no table cloth; shared tables on match day of course; again that's all fine and to be expected but not for me at high-end restaurant prices for lunch Also they had no note of our Open Table online booking because, according to the boss, they don't like to use it. Well don't use it then. Fortunately she found us a space. But hey this is Islington, so pay the price and enjoy the sumptuous food. Or notMore

Cosy, Ottoman-style decor makes this restaurant very charming but the food is also well worth the visit. Friendly service and good value for money too, especially for its location in Islington

A rare family run restaurant with character, Turkish cooking which is imaginative, not just kebabs, still hear your partner across the table, and not expensive.

Nice decor, and the quality of the food is good but, my word, you pay for it. Eye wateringly expensive and service was perfunctory at best (maybe because it was match day). Hence the 3 star rating.

Enjoyed a range of small plates, all excellent. Detailed explanations of dishes and ingredients provided when asked for. Decor distinctive, making this overall a really excellent experience. Hoping to return next time I’m in London!

Great ambiance, delicious food - best dolma (vine leaves) ever. We were only dropping in for a snack on our way back to our hotel but would definitely return for a full meal next time. Lovely service and fascinating decor.

Iznik Turkish restaurant in Highbury Park, London, was the perfect stop after a busy day. Homely, friendly atmosphere and beautiful décor, with welcoming staff and delicious food. Only stopped by for a snack late on Sunday 2nd April 2023 but would definitely return for a...main meal. Best veggie vine leaf dolma ever!More

The Turkish lights and cosy, eclectic decor are always a welcome sight. Highbury is not the shores of the Sea of Marmara or ancient Nicaea, but İznik does a great job of getting you there! The food is fresh. imaginative, full of charm, surprises, and...skill, and cooked to perfection. It is a real treat. The staff could not be kinder, friendlier, and more welcoming. A gem.More

The food was great and they really personalise their service. They helped us order (and were honest about how much we needed for 6 of us). They were so helpful and we had lovely shots (on the house!) afterwards. It made for a GREAT Tuesday...night out with the ladies! xMore

This is our favourite of the Turkish restaurants in the area - most of which are pretty good. Two main differences stand out: 1) The food is a little more subtle 2) the people working there are particularly friendly
