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.

"In March 1918, self-proclaimed World's Greatest Magician Chung Ling Soo (or Bill Robinson as his parents knew him!) performed his world famous "catch a bullet with his teeth" trick at the Wood Green Empire. Sadly, it didn't work and it him square in the chest."

There's a peaceful spot along the New River, which winds unassumingly through the residential streets to Finsbury Park.

Daniel Burrell

The Mackenzie Garden in Finsbury Park is a peaceful spot that I like to visit when I have the time.

About Harringay

Harringay is a residential area of North London, part of the London Borough of Haringey. It is centred on the section of Green Lanes running between the northern boundary of Finsbury Park up to the southern boundary of Duckett's Common, not far from Turnpike Lane. Whilst the main road feels definitely cosmopolitan, the population of the surrounding streets is somewhat more homogeneous. The streets to the west of Green Lanes are known as 'Harringay Park' or the 'Harringay Ladder' (due to their similarity to a ladder when seen on a map). The streets to the east behind Grand Parade are known as 'Harringay Gardens'.
