About
SET ON ONE OF LONDON’S MORE DIVERSE COMMERCIAL STREETS, THIS ENTERPRISE HAS PROVEN SO SUCCESSFUL THAT IT NOW STRETCHES TO THREE SEPARATE OPERATIONS IN THE SPACE OF FOUR STORE-FRONTS: A CAFÉ; A PÂTISSERIE OFFERING BAKLAVA, HOUSE-MADE ICE-CREAM AND OTHER SUGARY GOODNESS; AND MAIN RESTAURANT, ALWAYS HUMMING WITH CUSTOM FROM A WIDE VARIETY OF DINERS. The menu covers all the Turkish basics and more. Starters include a richly flavoured,kelle paca (lamb soup), lahmacun, the standard dips and other, unabashedly basic goodies: sahanda sucuklu yumurta... Our restaurant is famed for its pides: not too doughy and generously topped. The dishes are true to the flavours of the region, with the mixed mezze

I had been dying to come here. All my Turkish friends had raved about the place for service, quality and experience. Now that I live in Turkey too I was really looking forward to a taste from home. Unfortunately I didn’t experience any of it....The food was lovely but the service was absolutely appalling. I know Turkish hospitality and service and this was not it. No tea was offered, I had asked for a single raki and they brought me a double, nobody asked us whether we wanted anything else at the end of our meal and finally it took them about twenty minutes to bring the bill when they finally brought it, it took them another ten minutes to pay for it. We were essentially completely ignored. I would not recommend Antepliler and I will certainly not be going again any time soon. Shame because the quality of the food is good.More

Ordered Doner called Iskender which served on the bread and sauce on top and yogurt on the side of the plate. It was cooked to perfection, taste was delicious and very generous portion. Bought Baklava from the same group. Baklava was the best baklava I...gave eaten in UK. Fresh, not to much syrup and nice pistachio filling ( not cheap but worth for its quality ) Big Thank you to chefs who prepped and cook these dishes. Very Highly recommend !!! I can not say the same for service but they were OKMore

We have been to Kunefe shop where located next the the main restaurant. The two waitresses were extremely rude! Would never visit again! They think they make business due to overloaded customers but have no idea how to treat them! 👎🏻

I am a local. I used to eat in once a week or so, before Covid. The Manager, Magi is just lovely. Alas, I'm having to order food in now, as we are shielding. Order arrived close to an hour after placing, stone cold with...two items missing and only a very small portion of rice (not nearly enough for four people as is usual when eating in house). I called the restaurant and one Yasir agreed my order was wrong but said he could not send the missing items. I asked to talk to Magi but was told he isn't working tonight. Yasir basically told me 'do what you want madam'. Sadly, this place is not what it was.More

I’ve been going here almost every few months later and love their Beef Donor and rice. Delicious, mouthwatering, and well worth every penny. Don’t believe me then I suggest you go and try.

The doner here is perfect!! It actually reminds me of the doner that I had in turkey. What I love is that the meat is not processed and it’s made freshly.

Walked into the takeaway restaurant and two men were behind the serving counter. I asked them how much it would be for a doner kebab and chips and one of the men said £22! I thought he had misheard me so I asked him again...and again he said £22 for one portion. I looked to the other guy as clearly this was some sort of wind up and the other man told me it was £22, but for me he would do it for £12?! Utterly useless and incompetent service. I walked out and wouldn’t recommend anyone going here as clearly they are just trying to rip people off. Other kebabs are available down the road where are much more affordable and don’t involve rude staff.More

We ordered lahmacun from antepliler for our nephews graduation celebration we hd a family gathering. When the lahmacun arrived it was the bigges dissapointment. It was not cooked properly with hardly any meat tasting like tomatoe paste. We called them and they did not handle...very well. Saying it was all fine so we took it all the way back to them to show thats not normal! They were absolutely rude as if we are making a big deal. When we got the new one returned home you would expect them to make sure its cooked as thats why we are coming back. Absolutely not!!!! Again they gave us uncooked lahmacun with hardly any minced meat on there. I will show this to all friends and family and not to waste their money with you guys as we had to throw them away and buy pizza instead!! You can literally see how uncooked the dough is from the photos🤢More

My first visit to eateries of Harringay. A very busy bussly area with restaurants busy on the night of Eid. So pleased we chose this venue. A very relaxed atmosphere and exceptional service. The meat was so tender - we tucked into a mixed kebab...feast with lrvars, houmous, a wonderful fresh salad topped off with a glass of delicious Ayran!More
