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.

Food was excellent as usual but it felt a bit cramped and a little too crowded. I think they must have added some extra tables since we were there last.

A fabulous restaurant with all the right ingredients for a great evening out. We were warmly greeted on arrival and allowed to choose our table. The service was impeccable - attentive but not claustrophobic - and the food was delicious. We opted for the set menu which offers value for money and all four of us enjoyed the generous and tasty selection of hot and cold starters, followed by various skewers from the charcoal grill. The chicken breast was moist and the lamb chunks were tender and juicy. The accompanying mixed salad was crisp and fresh. We were too full for dessert, although the menu looked very appealing, but managed a round of coffees with Turkish delight. With three glasses of wine, a beer and a couple of bottles of sparkling water, our bill came to £120 excluding service. The atmosphere was buzzy and friendly and we shall definitely visit again when in the neighbourhood. Thank you Izgara!

Awesome food and great variety. We had two vegetarians in our party of four as well as another person who is allergic to fish and one to onion. We had no trouble finding food to cater for all our separate needs. Wonderful friendly staff.

Friendly service, a touch slow initially but nothing to worry about. Food was plentiful, good quality and good value. Meze starters and bread particularly enjoyable by the table

My friend and I shared 5-6 starters which were absolutely delicious and we had deserts. We paid just over £20 a head which I thought was a bargain. The service was fine but the food was knockout

Very. Very noisy when we arrived 8.15 pm Friday but a good table was found for us and noise level did go down a bit. For a couple in their 80s not suitable at that time. Main course portion much too large for us. Service was very good. Would not go again in the evening. If I did ever go again would ask for a small portion and/or a doggy bag. Hard to tell the difference between yog shush and another lamb dish with a different name.... sorry cant remember it’s name.

Fresh Food, friendly service. Unfortunately we were there during an evening when a group of very loud guys were having a meal. That kind of drowned out everything. We left as quickly as we could after we ate. Thankfully our previous experiences here have always been positive, otherwise we’d never return.

Both my partner and I love this place. I have taken my fussy Turkish parents here too and they also love it. We ate the chicken shish today and the meat was juicy and tender. The hellim was great too!

As usual, we received a really friendly welcome. The staff greeted us with a smile and a handshake. The request for a main course as a starter was granted, no problem. The food was excellent, and the bill reasonable. What a pleasure it was to lunch there,

This has been a favourite of ours for several years now. The food is very tasty and you can eat very healthily if you want to. The staff are so friendly - they are welcoming and attentive whatever age or group size you are. There is always a friendly buzz - we recommend this restaurant to friends.

Excellent midweek evening meal. Relaxed environment. Fresh ingredients. Well presented food. Service excellent. Whetstone High Rd jammed with restaurants but this stands out as one of the better ones including value for money.

Good place to eat with set menu being great value for money plus additional 20% off at lunch. They don't give the extra freebies you usually see in bit less pricey Turkish places but the portions are very generous so you're full up by the end!

Took my mum here for lunch on Mother's Day as we both love Turkish food. It was our first time visiting this place and we were so impressed with everything. The food was so unbelievably nice and fresh tasting as was the service. Everything was perfectly cooked and i've had similar dishes in other Turkish restaurants and none compare to here. Great atmosphere and lovely interior. Can't fault the place.
