SquareMeal Review of Iznik

Bronze Award

Named after the Turkish city famous for the elaborate tiles that adorn its walls, this family-run restaurant has the air of an exotic eastern bazaar. Iznik has been feeding locals for more than 20 years, and although some complain about slow or apathetic service at the busiest times, the packed tables are testament to the quality of the creative Ottoman cuisine. There’s a decent selection of hot and cold mezze, most under £5, as well as the expected mixed grill. But mains also include more adventurous choices such as king prawns sautéed with walnut and garlic. Vegetarians are well catered for, with the likes of kuru dolma (sun-dried aubergine and courgette filled with bulgur dressed with yoghurt). To drink, there’s refreshing Efes Pilsen, along with wines from a somewhat pricey list. Finish with ayva tatlisi (quince braised in syrup, with cream), just one of the sweet temptations.

Isnik Highbury Barn London N.5.
09 September 2019  

Isnik is an atmospheric Turkish Restaurant at Highbury Barn. It is easily accessible by tube from Highbury and Islington. The 19, 236, and 4 buses stop close by. The walls are lined wth Turkish artifax both traditional and newer. It is well lit and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and ready to help and describe meals on the menu. They have carefully chosen drinks that go with the food which is plentiful and very tasty. Good value for money.

I visited the restaurant on a wednesnay night at 10pm after an Arsenal game (it is a 5min walk from the Emirates stadium). Although it was late, there was good atmosphere, the staff and the owners were very kind, the food came very quickly and we had an amazing experience!!! Highly recommended for the heathy, tasty and homemade food, the beautiful Turkish decoration (lamps, etc), the service and Turkish wine (if you fell like trying something different). Value for money is excellent.
