With a hugely popular café, patisserie & restaurant in Harringay under their belt, the owners of this shiny new Turkish venue have nearly 20 years’ experience, & it shows. They’ve created a
glamorous space, with twinkling lights, pale-blue damask on the chairs, tables inlaid with mother of pearl, & folding doors that open to tempt in Islington’s café society. All the expected
mezze are here, packed with fresh herbs & spices, & served by friendly yet professional staff. Main courses, most around £10, focus on lamb & chicken, marinated & smoky from the
charcoal grill. Pide ‘pizzas’ are a speciality, & come with enticing toppings such as minced meat, garlic, tomatoes & peppers, cheese & herbs, & spicy Turkish sausage. On the drinks
list, the Anatolian house wine is joined by an interesting selection of international grapes.
