We often visit skewed but we had a terrible
Experience. Our meat was all grainy and undercooked so we left most of it . The waiter came over and noticed however he did not take it off the bill. Bad experience. Won’t be back

We had a 7pm Sunday booking where they didn’t seem to be too busy
There were a lot of staff walking up and down yet we waited ages even to be asked if we wanted a drink
In the end I called one of the ladies over and asked
‘Can we get a drink please ??’ There are slot of staff and nobody seems to know there job role ? I ordered a cocktail and it took ages to come . The other drinks were a while and my 87 dad asked for no ice in his drink but he got it anyway
Food was nice and staff were polite once they served us - but the only organisation it appears would be the staff preparing in the kitchen - the floor staff were actually bumping into each other and getting nowhere - it was a very hot day - you shouldn’t have to plead for a drink !! This is also bad business - o would have had another !
And there was no fish on the menu ??? Badly organised

We went there Saturday for our anniversary dinner. The staff cant do enough for you and the food is out of this world. We tried the chicken and lamb shish. We cant wait to go again.

We are fortunate to live only 10-mins walk from Skewd and regard it as our local
Consistently high quality food
Booking is advisable, especially in the evening

We ordered a range of meze’s and a lamb shish and asked for everything to come together. They forgot to put our lamb kebab order through despite several reminders. They even cleared our table and offered us a dessert menu despite us saying we were still waiting. A different waitress then came and reset our table and about 30 minutes later we received quite a small kebab - I then asked if something else could be given to us like potatoes as the food had taken too long to come out - usually wouldn’t have bothered me but we had our 2 year old with us and she alone could have polished off the very small portion of rice given to us. Given the time we waited there wasn’t a point in ordering something else. They then came out with more potatoes and bread but unfortunately we were charged for these items.
Overall:
*we had to really seek attention before someone took our order as well as asking for water,
*the order was then incorrect,
*no recommendation of ordering more for 3 adults and a child,
*nobody came to check if we were ok or if the food was to our satisfaction,
*we waited 30 minutes at the very least to be served our kebab
*nobody came to apologise for the mix up and wait
*then we were charged for something that they should’ve rectified
*The lamb shish was delicious
...but not really worth it in the end....I went home hungry and so did my partner.

I love this place, I had my birthday here a couple of years ago and when we wanted a local family celebration for my mum's first book publishing deal this was the first place we thought of. The food is lovely, great portion sizes, amazing flavours, fabulous cocktail menu. The service is also brilliant, attentive but not rushed, you feel like they care about your meal. They were also lovely enough to put together a fruit plate with 'congrats' for my mum, which was so sweet of them. On a busy night it is quite noisy, so if that's not your thing maybe go mid-week or a bit earlier/later in the evening.

Food was tasty but not a particularly wide choice.Especially if you didn't want to pay high price.Service was good and ambience ok.It wasn't noisy when we were in but it was midweek so not many customers.
Overall good apart from price.

Good food however not better than your standard Turkish in my opinion. Also 3 times more expensive. We paid £180 for 4 people for LUNCH. Confused service, only one lady seemed switch on sadly.

We had an excellent meal at Skewd. The service was very good especially as they had a party that night which meant they were very busy. The food is of superb quality and beautifully presented. The wine which was the house wine was excellent. Overall an excellent meal but quite expensive.

I've dined here a number of times in the evening and never found fault with this restaurant. This time round we celebrated with a birthday brunch and it was lovely.
I not a foodie but can only say would definitely recommend this restaurant to all, for any occasion. The food is always a delight and the service is commendable and warming.

We had a fabulous evening with our friends at Skewd Kitchen. The restaurant itself was nice, clean and comfortable ... quite loud but then again it would have lacked ambiance had it been quiet but it wasn't too loud that we couldn't hear ourselves speak. The staff from beginning to end where so attentive, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much even when it came to my fussy friend who always needs to change things a 1000 times - they were so accommodating. The food arrived in good time, looked amazing and didn't disappoint in the taste either. The salads were fresh, the vegetables cooked to perfection and the meat as tender as were lead to believe in the menu. Desserts were yummy and presentation again on point. All in all we all left very happy and very full and thinking of our next date when we can go back. 10 out of 10

Very cool take on Greek modern cuisine on the outskirts of London. Menu had great selections, very good energy in the restaurant. Food was excellent, great service, menu choices, cuisine still very Greek without feeling to modern. Reasonably priced, fit for foodies and all occasions. Definitely worth taking the tube all the way to the end of the Piccadilly line to experience....

Fabulous local restaurant with a lively atmosphere albeit a little loud sometimes! A varied menu offering a wide choice of fresh and delicious dishes to suit meat eaters and vegetarians alike ...the octopus was amazing! Weekend evenings are always busy , there's a special lunchtime menu which is excellent value .

Quite an enjoyable evening. We were seated in the front window which was ok but the restaurant is very long and deep so we would have felt more comfortable further in. The chairs we had were very hard wooden ones , a bit hard for sitting on for s couple of hours chatting and dining with friends. Overall the food was pretty good but fairly expensive for what you get

We go to Skewd quite often as the kebabs are so much nicer then other Turkish restaurants. But we went to try the new roast dinner which was delicious!!!! I wanted more! The beef was so smokey and the smell was amazing! The red cabbage was amazing, the kale which I don’t usually like I absolutely loved! I just wish there was a bit more vegetables. The gravy was smooth and tasted so good I asked for more! I hope they make the veg portion a bit bigger and maybe cauliflower cheese with a Skewd twist. If your in Cockfosters on a Sunday and fancy a roast, then definitely go Skewd!
