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!

Great place for coffee, brunch, an after-work drink or light bite to eat. Live music nights, and part gallery. A very popular and award-winning venue for the local community.

The cuisine in Wood Green is the best in North London. As a Greek/Cypriot living in London, I have found some of the best Greek shops and restaurants in this area. My absolute favourite places are Vrisaki in Myddleton Road and Paneri on High Road.
I love vibrant Green Lanes, with an array of Turkish restaurants, variety of shops and the amount of small parks in the area.
It's right next to Alexandra Palace, convenient for shopping and transport, and still relatively affordable to buy a decent place to live.
I love being surrounded by green spaces and large gardens. I love to be around malls where I can find everything I need. Wood Green is a multicultural neighbourhood, there are several shops from around the world and a wide variety of products. Public transport works very well. The health center is very good. It is a safe neighborhood for walking both day and night. Fruits and vegetables are fresh and quality. The people are very nice in this neighborhood. I am very happy to live in this part of the town.
Wood Green provides shoppers with a choice of supermarkets including Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and not to mention M&S Food. There are great clothes shops, hairdressers and Wilkinsons for just about every household product you could ever want. You can commute to Covent Garden in 20 mins. At the same time you can walk up to Ally Pally to see the deer and feel like you are in the countryside. Keep it a secret so prices don't rocket!
