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.

    The lamb shish was spectacular we all really enjoyed it. Portions great. The restaurant was only 30% full but the kitchen was all over the place Our starters arrived at least 5 minutes apart - the cold one first, then 3 minutes later hot soups then at least 3 minutes later grilled helium. Why wasn't it all coordinated with the grilled starter ? Very strange

    Very average, this venue would not survive on green lanes or in stoke newington where the competition would be too fierce and the food would look sub par

    Yummy food, huge portions next time we go we’ll order half. For the kids I needed to specify not to add dressings for things like crudite. Staff were lovely but needed reminding re: some drinks, forgot to bring water and my son’s juice.

    Although the food was lovely, extensive menu and very attentive staff, my problem was the reluctance to accommodate a specific request with dish choices. I don’t see the problem with swapping a side of rice for chips, both are available on the menu and I would imagine they cost around the same. They refused to do the swap and suggested we order an extra side - a crafty tactic to bump up the bill in my opinion!

    Portions were too tiny for price paid. Not worth it at all. Food was not special.. The mixed grill was completely not how we expected, just a skewer of fish and peppers...portion was small. We were charged 2 tiramisus when we only ordered one.

    Lovely meal with the family. Service was very good and the food was delicious. Very generous portions so I think next time - and we will be back - we will share 2 meat mains between 3 or even 4. Restaurant was buzzing even at 7:30 on a Wednesday. Would definitely recommend
