In 1998, this spot won Best Budget Meal in Time Out’s Eating & Drinking Awards. Now it’s probably not even in the top four or five best budget meals within a 500-metre radius. Still, that’s more a reflection of the fierce competition from other Turkish joints nearby than anything else; the food here is still pretty decent.

The bustling canteen atmosphere that defines many Dalston grills is notably absent. At the front is a standard takeaway counter, but the restaurant is a smart affair these days. Both decor, menu and even name were updated in 2012: tripe soup (iskembe), once a house speciality, is no longer available, but there are still plenty of hot and cold meze and an abundance of grilled meats.
