    Very good proper Turkish food; lovely friendly service from staff Expensive though; more than £80 for lunch for two And they don't check online bookings so even though we booked through Opentable they didn't have us down as booked. It's because they don't check, which is very annoying. Luckily they found some space for us

    Dear Mr. Collins, I would like to respond to your comments. We are sorry that there was an issue with your online reservation (which was fortunately promptly resolved) but to say that we don’t check online reservations is simply not the case. The issue regarding your online reservation has never previously occurred and does not mean that we do not check our reservations. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, Can Oner Manager Iznik Restaurant

    We were disappointed with the food, the prices are not what were displayed on the website or open table. Mains were £4/5 more expensive. I would definitely not pay £25 for slightly marinated chicken breast (not even cooked on charcoal) and plain rice with 3 tiny pieces of vegetables. Very disappointed Honestly feel slightly cheated The bill came to £167.5 for 5 people for very basic food

    The food at the restaurant was truly outstanding. We had the opportunity to savor a variety of delectable dishes that left us thoroughly impressed. Among the dishes we tried were Anatolian kebab, dolma, kalamar, and tavuk iznik. Each of these dishes offered a unique and flavorful experience. Attentive and friendly service ! Thank you.

    We had a fantastic lunch today (used to be regulars 16 years ago). Pearl, our server and I believe is the owner, was so hospitable and charming which is always a good start. Food was visibly amazing and equally tasty. Such wonderful flavours. We opted for a Turkish house wine which was delicious. The decor is colourful and intriguing - I loved it. Would love to share photos but for some reason unable to do on app.

    This my favourite pre-Arsenal restaurant. It isn't just that I enjoy Turkish cuisine, it is that Iznik's Turkish cuisine is varied, always interesting and served with love. I can hugely recommend this restaurant whether there is a football match being played or not, and my travelling 100 miles to sit at table is testimony to this recommendation. LM

    As always, Iznik proves to be the finest restaurant in N5, serving inspirational Turkish cuisine. I would recommend it most strongly to those who wish to sample Mediterranean food as it should be served. Well done, Iznik...and no, I am not a regular, I live 100 miles away. LM

    Beautiful decor, new colours since last visit years ago add further vibrancy adding to this lovely restaurants’s ambiance. Food was excellent, could have done with a short gap between starters and mains, though maybe no gap is preferable to long wait for next course. Altogether however an excellent and most enjoyable eating experience.
