There are a few reasons why this Haringey restaurant could take on a moniker such as this. The most obvious, given that it's located in an old Barclays bank, is an erroneous Gallic reference to the building's previous inhabitant - but then this place focuses on steaks and burgers, rather than French fare. Perhaps, then, it's simply hinting at the fact that you can park your derriere on one of their benches - to smoke a shisha, maybe.
If you're tucking into the food, steaks include rib-eye, sirloin, t-bone and a rump of lamb, while burgers range from a classic beefburger to a 'deluxe' with melted Stilton, a 'cabernet' with shallots cooked in red wine, and a 'tower burger combo' - a beef burger and a chicken fillet with melted Cheddar, mixed salad and mayonnaise. Chicken burgers feature, too.
Mocktails and floral teas offer intriguing alternatives to alcoholic options including bottles of Efes, Peroni, Corona and Stella, as well as shots and well-known spirits.

The quality of service and food is excellent, never disappoints, best shisha in London by far. The staff are also very friendly.
The food is amazing - especially the burgers. Service is really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is always great; perfect for all occasions from a celebration to a casual dinner.
I love the welcoming and friendly service! The food is deliciously tasty and doesn't take forever to come out. The decor of the place is nice too. Overall 5/5 my favourite spot
Customer service and atmosphere is fantastic. I have been going there for 3 years now and they never fail to disappoint. Definitely one of my favourite places to go!
Outstanding food. Perfect customer service. Not forgetting to mention they have the most hardworking team! X
By far the best restaurant/lounge in london. From food, to drinks, to shisha and hospitality. Amazing atmosphere, where staff always make you feel welcome. Would reccomend to everyone who is looking for great food and a place to chill.
Ive been to a few restaurants and shisha bars and Banc is by far the best. The service the people the food the presentation. You go there and feel like part of a family. The place is like home. If you havent been you need to go its that simple and the refurb is just beautiful. Hands up and down Best in london.
Overlooking DownHill Park, the Banc is an happy island in a sea of KFC and kebab shops. Appetisers and venison were great and the service was impeccable. If you live in Seven Sisters you should definitely give this place a chance. If you fancy a light bite instead, they have also opened a fine brasserie - also named The Banc - just in front of the restaurant. Love it!
Just a word of warning, if you're vegetarian and especially if you're vegan, best to give this place a miss. They have a really limited non-meat/fish selection, despite pleas from local veggies. And the veggie burger is just mashed chickpeas with a lot of bread. But beautifully presented!
So pleased that this is our local restaurant, so that we can visit regularly.
The decor and ambience is very clean, stylish and welcoming.
The food is amazing - perfectly cooked, yummy, generous portions, beautifully presented. The prices are very reasonable, bearing in mind the quantity and quality of the food that you get.
Service is superb; the staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. The lovely owners, Jan and Fabio, are nearly always in attendance and make a point of checking in with customers to see that they are happy.
The burgers, steaks, salmon fillet and lamb chops are to be recommended, although to be honest, you can't go wrong with any of their fabulous dishes. We are slowly trying to work our way through their entire menu although progress has been hampered somewhat by the fact that we keep re-ordering our favourite dishes every time we go in... We will get there eventually :-)
For those who wish to partake, they have an excellent shisha garden at the back of the restaurant; it's well laid out, beautifully furnished, the shisha is lovely, mellow and smooth. Great assortment of flavours too. Again, as expected, service is excellent.
All. I can say is: just go and try The Banc; you will not regret it!
Everything. Simply, everything is perfect about this place. Nestled in a not so obvious part of London, it provides fabulous halal burgers and steaks and an ideal private shisha are downstairs with... you guessed it... PAAN flavour shisha!! Oh happy days! It's well priced and I wish it was closer to me but damn it I will travel there to go through it all again - takes reservations plus, and lovely staff with a kitchen you can watch to boot!
