Turkish

Izgara is set within the vibrant restaurant quarter of Whetstone, North London and is within a couple of minutes walk from Totteridge and Whetstone Underground station.
The restaurant serves lunch and remains open for dinner untill 11.00pm, making it an ideal place for lunch, afternoon dining and dinner.
You’ll find yourself greated warmly as you ease into the comfortable, contemporary surrounds. It’s as much about great people as it is about great great Turkish Cuisine, as traditional dishes from mainland Turkey are served with a modern twist.

Pride and care is taken in the kitchen to prepare and cook using only the finest ingredients.

    Lovely evening, restaurant very busy. We ordered fairly quickly. Wine and starter came quickly only for mains to not arrive. The waiter queried this with us and reordered them but they still took quite a while to arrive. It seems our order was lost somewhere. Not too much of an issue but it was quite a long wait. When mains arrived, food was lovely - chicken shish, chicken lovely and tender and lovely fresh salad. Very filling.

    It was busy due to it being Mother’s Day, nevertheless the staff catered for everyone well. Sometimes when a restaurant is busy the food is hit and miss but on this occasion the food was beautiful and freshly cooked. We will definitely be coming back.

    I ordered fish kebab and I’m disappointed with the quality of the food. Fish definitely was frozen- tuna didn’t taste good. Also salad wasn’t served at the beginning- they used serve salad as a starter but it seems like they stopped doing that .

    The ambience was ok but the staff did not know their own menu. I chose a dish “Ali nazik” (meat over smoked aubagine purè) and they brought me “Iskendar “ (yogurt and source on top of bread )When I pointed out that they brought me a completely different dish the waitress was saying that “it’s basically the same thing with added aubergine “-which it totally IS NOT! It’s a completely different dish. They didn’t even offer to give that dish for free or offer free deserts as a compensation even though we’d spent over £120 altogether. So based on this experience I can say that it’s terrible customer service they really do not know how to make their customers happy even when they have blatantly made a massive mistake. I didn’t touch what I ordered and even though they noticed this they didn’t even apologise. This place doesn’t even deserve one star to be honest. It might be okay for people that do not know Turkish food and wants to try something different but for someone who is quite familiar with this cuisine I can honestly say it’s completely pretentious food

    I loved the food and the servers/ service was lovely. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. One of the things that I could possibly pick at was the positioning of the table. We were right near the door / so the cold wind coming in and out was constant - and due to the restaurant being quite busy / it was a little cramped at times. Also; Vegan options for the desserts would be appreciated - as there was nothing at all - which was a shame.

    Food was fine. Service on the other hand was very slow. Restaurant wasn’t very busy. One of the initial round of drinks was missing the vodka from the vodka/coke. Hard to attract the staff’s attention for anything else.

    We visited for a small staff Christmas party and we weren't disappointed. The staff were really friendly, the food was great (too much!) and we had such a lovely meal. The restaurant was reasonably busy and we enjoyed a set special menu which didn't disappoint. Staff very accommodating and everyone well looked after. Would recommend.

    We've eaten here many times, but this time was awful! The service was shocking and the food wasn't great either. There was hardly anyone there, the staff were mainly sitting around. We had to go up and ask for our olives, my food was cold and had to be sent back and as much as we tried to get attention, we were ignored. I actually went to speak to somebody I think was in charge, and to say she wasn't interested in anything I had to say was an understatement. There are so many restaurants locally, I wouldn't think you could afford to treat loyal customers in this way.
