North London's best curry house and probably north London's best kept secret. It's a small restaurant and takeaway on Turnpike Lane that prepares freshly made curries!

Amazing home-cooked burgers, steaks and more in a former Barclays bank building. Owned by two friends who have also bought the coffee shop across the road!

One of the best Turkish Restaurants in North London. Always busy, especially on weekends when you have to reserve seats to avoid standing outside. Amazing customer service, great food and a reasonable price for the standard. You should try the lamb and chicken grill.

An absolute favourite for residents of The Ladder. This is the best of a large number of Turkish restaurants on Green Lanes. Portions are big and cheap. Even has a rave review in the Evening Standard! Check out their TripAdvisor ratings.
