Middle Eastern and African
19 Highbury Park, Islington, North-London, N5 1QJ
The Guardian has called it 'the best all round Turkish restaurant in London,' while GQ referred to it as 'a true Turkish delight'. It's certainly easy to see why the critics are in such raptures over Iznik, situated in trendy Highbury Park - not only is the interior a fantastical voyage to the East, complete with low hanging lanterns, warm desert tones and aged artefacts galore, but its food is equally authentic too. Since 1989, the Iznik kitchen has poured heart and soul in to its cookery, seeking out and preparing dishes that most realistically relate to both the Ottoman Empire and modern-day Turkey alike. There is something on the menu to suit everyone, and you won't find a more friendly, welcoming atmosphere anywhere. Visit once, and you'll be a regular at this Turkish delight in no time.
