SquareMeal Review of Istanbul Restaurant

If you’re looking for a decent meal at 3am (and many are, so close to Dalston’s late-night dens of iniquity), head for this capacious Turkish restaurant that’s open until 5am. Don’t limit yourself to dining in the wee small hours though – the food’s good, staff provide a warm welcome at any time, and a spruce-up has done away with the room’s previous 1990s-timewarp feel. The house speciality is iskembe (tripe soup), but there are plenty of alternatives to offal. Try the fresh hot and cold mezze, or the kebabs and grills (from simple lamb shish through to fillet steak). Fish and traditional dishes such as kuzu firin (joint of lamb in rich tomato and vegetable sauce) all come at impressively low prices too. Sip Efes Pilsen or raki, or choose from a decent selection of wines.
