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.

Brilliant as ever! Gave us the table we’d particularly requested. Fast service,good food and we were 4 happy diners, spoilt just a little by a large table of noisy, inebriated ladies next to us which encouraged us to leave a little earlier than we might have done!

As usual, lovely food, great service....but the smoke from the kitchen completely spoiled it, and made half the meal unbearable as it was so bad it made our eyes itch & throats hurt, it was horrible. And I really felt for the chefs in the kitchen who couldn’t breathe either!

Delicious food and great service, I went with a group of 4 friends and they kindly let us sit on the round table for 6 as they weren’t busy.

It was a very pleasant meal with family, all the staff were helpful and the food was exceptional. We will book again at this restaurant in future. Also it is very near where we live and easy to get to. I have never been to a Turkish restaurant before in England and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

It's always a pleasure to visit this restaurant. The food and service are excellent and the tables are not too close together. The only drawback can be the lack of car-parking!

The background music was a little loud for a lunch time. However, it was a very buzzy place to eat. Felt a little rushed with our starter as they were keen to clear as mains were ready. Food was excellent though so only a little comment.

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.
