Izgara Restaurant - Whetstone
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.
Grilled aubergine, courgette, mushrooms, onions, red and green peppers, served with a touch of pomegranate juice
Shaped and lightly fried balls of chick peas, parsley, onions, garlic and corriander served with humus
Chicken a La Creme
Tender chicken and oyster mushrooms in a creamy sauce, served with salad
The food was good but I wouldn't be in a rush to go back there. If someone suggested it I would be happy to go bit wouldn't make a special effort.
This restaurant is way too busy for these covid times. No spacing between tables, waiters practically climbing over you to get to other tables and one only if them was wearing a mask. If this is of concern to you don’t come!
Too many people. Very noisy. Tables too close together. Not enough ventilation. I and my sister were uncomfortable given current COVID concerns.
However, the service was very good and the food really delicious.
I have eaten at Izgara many many times but would now be reluctant to go back during this pandemic.
Nice food but no social distancing or contact tracing in place.
Our food came very late and the dish I had ordered was ridiculous and didn’t have the ingredients it said on the menu which they later agreed and changed. I don’t think so I will go back.
We always prefer Izgara as the food is amazing, service is excellent and the team is very friendly.
Highly recommended and we will definitely come back..
Very efficient friendly service, food was very fresh.
Food was okay, the entire restaurant was overly packed. Disappointed that zero social distancing was in place or even the lack of ppe worn by the staff. Tables were placed so close together and for the current climate, no protection was provided what so ever. Won’t be visiting again as it made me feel extremely uncomfortable and unsafe. It’s a shame as we were out to support the eat out to help out scheme. I will be reporting this to higher up due to these measure being put into place by the government for the safety of everyone. Disappointed and appalled.
Was a birthday dinner.
Food was good as always and the service is spot on considering how busy they were.
The food was excellent. Service was a bit slow but the restaurant was busy.
We love going here and the food was very good as usual. We were surprised when we got in there that non of the waiting staff were wearing masks or shields. I had to get up and go over to the bar and ask them to wear a mask when they served us. We were a group of seniors! They did this quite happily and they did have hand sanitiser by the door. It’s great to be able to go out again but we feel this needs addressing.
The set menu is expensive for what you get compared to a Greek meze !! Seemed quite expensive and why do you get 10 pieces of chicken and only 8 pieces of lamb ??
Great food, great service and great atmosphere!
Highly recommend for a family meal or quiet date night!
Parking available on adjacent road too after 6.30pm
The vegetarian meze plate was so tasty, would 100% recommend. All very generous portions.
Food good as normal. Went on an Eat Out to Help Out night so very busy. Perhaps remove a couple more tables to assist on social distancing. Thanks
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!
Excellent value set lunch. Good salad with the shish. No need to have rice. Charms no service.
We go once a week
so delicious and fresh
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.
Really lovely food and a great atmosphere and the staff are always pleasant and friendly.
Service took a while on a busy night, the food was nice though and portions sizeable
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 service was amazing and would go again. The waiters were lovely.
wonderful food, warm, relaxing atmosphere, staff were very efficient, highly recommend
nice food, good service, lunch menu great vslue
Lovely food and great service.
We went as a family for my husbands birthday.. food was fabulous, staff were attentive and really helpful. It was a bit noisy but it was pretty full.
Lovely dinner with an old friend. Food was great, always fresh and good portions. Waitresses were friendly and attentive.
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.
Very welcoming as usual, food and service was excellent. The chairs are extremely comfortable, and it was easy to park our car nearby. Altogether a very pleasant lunch.
Excellent as usual. Food, service, ambience
Best Turkish restaurant in the area
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!
Excellent food and service. Not crammed in. Food very tasty, cooked to perfection.
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 wife and I go every month cos we love it so much. The staff are great. Food is lovely and we always look forward to going back.
Special event - birthday for nephew's fiancee. Food excellent and service very good.
