I've lived in the area 20 odd years and used to go there often - it used to be good reasonably priced food - it's gone downhill, food is average at best and overpriced and with the exception of one young waiter it's a surly...More

The food was fantastic! Gaby was amazing, polite and went out of her way to make sure mine and my friends experience was excellent. The Irish coffee was spot on as well!

Just shared a mixed meze with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was mostly vegetarian but that is fine, it was all tasty and very good value.

This restaurant in Dalston, Hackney has been in operation since 2002. It has continuously offered a wide range of authentic Turkish food, inspired by Ottoman recipes. The dishes are prepared with a well defined range of cooking methods and the aromas coming from the charcoal grill are mouth-watering. The Stone Cave offers breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, fresh juices, Turkish tea, organic tea, coffee, cocktails and alcohol. The location is ideal, easily accessible with Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland close by. The ambience of this establishment is enhanced by Turkish lanterns and unusual stone-like walls which provide a Cappadocian atmosphere. Belly dancing and Turkish music is a feature which in combination with the above, make this arguably one of the finest Turkish restaurants in East London. This is somewhere to come as a couple or as a party where you can be guaranteed a fun time and not be rushed!
