After waiting 25 minutes longer than told at the time of ordering a takeaway I was bitterly disappointed with the food. The meal was missing several items listed on the menu, barely warm and was also initially asked to pay more than advertised. I certainly will be avoiding this restaurant in future and will advise other friends and family to do so. Shameful, being busy is no excuse for poor standards and lack of care.

After more than 3 years living and eating in Green Lanes I'm afraid that it was the worst experiences in one of this turkish restaurant! They open their door for you from the beginning but after is just terrible! No fresh salad! Small mezzes! Expensive beer if you compare prices with other restaurants! Poor service! One of the waiters was eating his nails doing nothing else! We asked for the bill even without wait if they were gonna offer anything else! Forget about to have turkish experience in this place!
We love turkish food and with this place very disappointed!!!!

nice and crowded place in the turkish area of london, i was with a friend and had the special dish (meat, rice and some sort of cus cus) for 28 pounds and it was totally worth it.. final balance was 17 pounds each one.. i recommend it strongly.. the service is a bit unpolite but i was there for the delicious food

While my favourite restaurant goes through a refit to keep up with the Jones's (or the Turkish version of the Jones's) we tried this restaurant this weekend. What a difference to the last place we ate. Again it's one of the refitted restaurants but unlike the other that I reviewed the food was far from standard or bland.

The Lachmacun had character and tasted great. My chicken meatballs and rice was superb. The accompanying salads and bread and sundries were fresh and tasty. The only downside was the cold Iskender that my partner got. At her request they did zap it in the microwave to warm it up and it tasted great but should have come out piping hot as any Iskender should.

However the quality of the food, the service and flavour made up for that so what might have been a 5/5 is only a 4/5 due to the cold Iskender.

Recommended though - without a shadow of a doubt!
