Skewd Kitchen has won numerous awards at the Just Eat sponsored National Turkish Restaurant Ceremony, including Fine Dining, Best Young Chef and Restauranteur of the Year.
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
Birthday evening meal. Great service, great food. Everything attended for. Would go back again.
We are regular customers and use this restaurant for most special occasions in the family - the staff always make us feel very welcome , they are very accommodating of our 2 year old son , and the food and atmosphere is always great 👍
I had lunch with a friend on Saturday and we had a cold and hot meze. It was delicious especially the octopus. Highly recommend this place
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.
*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.
Great food and great service. I would definitely go again.
Amazing food, literally the lamb is to die for. Service is great the staff are friendly and in a great location !
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.
As ever, a fabulous evening. Food divine, service excellent and atmosphere laid back yet lively.
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.
Great place to eat fantastic food very fresh and the staff are excellent highly recommend Skewd as a top quality place to eat
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 a lovely meal at Sunday lunchtime. There was a nice atmosphere and the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. The food was delicious, we couldn't fault anything. I will definitely be returning!
Fabulous food and service!! Would thoroughly recommend
A frequent eater here, so was great to bring family to try the delicious authentic food.
It was my partners birthday and they surprised him with his fave desert of cheesecake. Extremely attentive staff, beautiful food and atmosphere. We will be back!
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.
Excellent freshly cooked food. This is our 6th visit and have every intention of returning.
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....
Incredible food and outstanding service! High standards every single time. Best restaurant experience in North London.
High quality food and service - regular visits, always a pleasurable 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
Excellent restaurant, food delicious, staff friendly, was busy as bank holiday and good ambience. Will visit again and recommend highly,
Amazing food and service!
Little pricey but nice. Great cocktails. The rest of this review was just so I could buff it up to 50 characters or more.
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!
I have bern to this restaurant on several occasions, and I have always enjoyed the food and the staff who are always willing and are tentative to your needs. Beautiful experience as always. Definitely recommend this restaurant for all occasions.
Some of the best Turkish food I’ve had! Absolutely delicious and I will definitely be going back!
Food was great, service was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back.
My friends and I had a lovely evening. Wonderful food and a warm and friendly service from the staff. The restaurant is immaculate and a pleasure to eat in.
Best place to celebrate mother's day ever! Highly recommended to the family, couples and a group of friends.
Mother’s day was a great experience and we got a photo taken and passed on to us which was an excellent touch! Can’t wait to return. I did find the soft drinks a little pricey but other than that very happy with the meal!
The food is outstanding and never fails to disappoint. A little pricey but delicious.
good food and service.... will go back for sure...
there was a loud table of cackling middle age women :)
Went for dinner with friends on Friday night. The atmosphere was busy and lively, the food was truly amazing, and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back again!
Met my nieces for lunch at Skewd and had a really delicious meal. The waiter told us they had won and award and so offered us a glass of Prosecco to celebrate. This was very thoughtful and most appreciated.
Food wonderful along with service and cost. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will return
Very attentive staff. Foood was delicious and they were very knowledgeable on gluten free. Would definitely recommend.
