We dined here on Sunday as a family - what an amazing place! The food beautifully cooked and well presented - the staff attentive and the owners so friendly & welcoming. The décor is spectacular (a feast for the eyes) & the music played is an eclectic mix - most enjoyable. We were a party of 4 so could order... More

We arrived on a Saturday night at 8, to discover a step ladder blocking the door and the owner putting up Christmas lights. They were all that sparkled from then on. The owner's wife was taciturn way way beyond the point of rude. How dare we ask for pickles! All requests greeted with an uncaring shrug. The bread was awful.... More

We have been to Iznik a few times during the past 15 years and previously the food was satisfactory and the waiting staff nice. However, the owner has a chip on his shoulder and cannot stand criticism. This time we had to return a main dish which had sultanas in it which were not noted on the menu. Our Turkish... More

We only came across this place because it was local and on the Taste card so weren't expecting anything special but were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious an great value for money, service was friendly although it was really quiet for a weeknight evening.They could tone down the decor as its very distracting with lanterns hung on every nook...

Liked the decor and it is not expensive, but there was nothing to shout about. There were 4 of us and we had plenty of the starters and I had stuffed vine leaves with lamb and rice as main. The main was ok but a bit over cooked and lacked finesse in both taste and appearance. A bit heavy all... More

Years ago the Iznik in Highbury Barn was my very special favourite restaurant with a magic atmosphere and delicious home made Turkish food. Then it was taken over by the owner's son and it lost it's magic. Now the original couple have returned and the food once again has that unique quality which only comes from the personal touch and...

I visited this restaurant together with my son and a friend of ours. This restaurant was a very nice restaurant and the servise was excellent and the food was so very good. I hope to come back some day to eat their good food again.

We stayed in the area and the food was so good we returned on another night. The second time we went they weren't officially open. However as we were after some pre-theatre food with our young daughter the pub opposite was heaving with Christmas parties. They happily accommodated us and got us straight in for dinner. I thought the flavours... More
