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

Delightful place. Brought my mum as a late Christmas present. Staff very friendly with a great sense of humour. Mum is a vegan, and they were very helpful in identifying suitable things on the menu for her, and as a non vegan i was in...paradise! Food tastes fresh and rich with flavour. Can recommend the sharing platter as gives you a great base to start and the vegetarian kebab was outstanding. Our waiter Tolgay was friendly and fun, and made us feel very welcome. Good selection of wines and really nice atmosphere. Will definitely be back. Thank you guysMore

Visited the Stone Cave for my birthday dinner and it exceeded my expectations! The food was amazing from the cocktails, starters, mains to dessert, everything was perfectly cooked. The service was top class! Every staff member was so friendly and welcoming, from the moment we...are entered until we left.

We went to Stone Cave for a family dinner and found the place unique in all aspect. The interior decoration is one of a kind which gave us feeling like we are having the dinner in a mountainous remote place inside a ancient cave. The...foods are sooo delicious made by the chef specially for us. The chef came over to us to ask our preference and kind of taste we love. Foods came on-time and it was finger licking good. Truly speaking - we enjoyed the place with its quality food and mannered staff. We go again and again during weekend .More

Best restaurant I have ever been to! Very wide, extensive menu which has lots of vegetarian, meat and fish options. Difficult to choose what to have as there were a few I liked the look of but in the end chose the salmon. Totally amazed...when it arrived as in most restaurnants you get served a tiny portion with a bit of garnish, but here it was a massive portion which was beautifully presented, covered in potatoes and vegetables. I have never taken a photo of my food before but I took a photo of this! Tasted delicious too! Decor of of the restaurant is beautiful too, with many beautiful lamps on the ceiling, and lovely atmosphere. Cocktails were OK but wish I had had wine or prosecco instead.More

Ate here twice at the weekend and the food and service were excellent. Fab menu with the traditional English breakfast but some interesting Turkish options too which we tried and loved. Turkish tea was just as good as being in Turkey itself. Good value for...money too. Pop along you won't be disappointed. Can wait to go back when we're next in London visiting our sonMore

Food was ok but way overpriced for the portion size. The staff was friendly. For the first time ever after eating a "main" I then ordered another "main" because I was still hungry....
