Good service, great food, great value.
My partner and I visit Hasan's on a regular basis. We have got to know the staff and the owner always come and makes an effort to say hello.
Upon arrival you're quickly seated and given warm bread, onions in a sauce and salad.
We always order far too much and still the bill rarely gets up to £40.
The Meze is brilliant if you want a little of everything otherwise I would highly recommend the Pirzola or Yogurtlu Adana.
With a loud atmosphere it's perfect for groups or couples.
Dalston / Stoke Newington has a lot of Turkish restaurants but Hasan is the best pick of the bunch.

It was a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon and we were rather hungry having arrived rather late for lunch. We left feeling very full, despite only spending £16 each on a 2 course meal with a hot and cold drink each - this is excellent value for London.

Obviously not part of a chain and family owned, service was welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive. While we waited for the starters to arrive, we were given a basket of bread with 2 nicely presented salads to share (apparently free).

For starters, we both ordered arnavut cigeri - diced Lamb's liver with parsley, tomato and onion. This was quite a large portion for a starter and the liver was perfectly cooked to my liking and nicely but subtly seasoned.

For main, I ordered beyti - 3 sausage shaped lamb mince patties flavoured with garlic and parsley served with 2 types of rice and salad - one plain boiled and the other mixed with a tangy red sauce. Everything was hot, not too spicy and the char-grilling was subtle and not over-carbonized as often happens with this type of cooking.

We ordered a glass of ayran (jogurt drink) each with a coffee and when we declined dessert (we were very full by this stage!) - we were given 2 cubes each of what looked like Turkish delight, but I think was flavoured with honey - haven't come across these before.

We will definitely return to this place when next in the area.

Best service and staff are excellent! Me and my girlfriend have been a few times and one of the staff who is the owners son recognise's us and always comes and says hello which is nice.

Food is the best ever! Fresh, tasty and hot! Excellent place to eat if you like turkish cuisine.

Great food. Fresh and delicious. Excellent value and quality meat. Even better, restaurant is BYOB. Can definitely recommend lamb chops but everything we tried was good. YUM.
