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.

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.

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!

Modern trendy décor, but underneath it's a classic pub. Friendly atmosphere, super food, and darts and pool at the back.

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'.
