SquareMeal Review of Likya Ocakbasi

North London has its fair share of Turkish restaurants, but few can compete with the venerable institution that is Likya in Golders Green – a brilliant, bustling and casual rendezvous dealing in highly acclaimed kebabs. A meal here always starts with a basket of freshly baked bread served with spicy salsa and sour yoghurt dip, before you’re invited to dive into the extensive roll call of ocakbasi classics. Alongside the aforementioned kebabs (lamb, chicken and a veggie option), you’ll find mezze nibbles such as grilled kofte, stuffed vine leaves and falafel, plus aubergine moussaka and the obligatory sticky baklava for dessert. Bottles of wine start at a very purse-friendly £14.50, but everything takes a back seat to the food. Our advice? Book ahead – Likya’s regulars will happily cross town for these meaty skewers.
