Time Out says

A pan-Asian restaurant on Stoke Newington High Street, in situ since the late '90s. It's a comfortable, if simple, looking venue offering a wide range of food from Japan, Thailand, China and Vietnam. 

Dishes range from dim sum, gyoza and Vietnamese spring rolls to pad Thai, beef pho, Singapore fried noodles and chicken in black bean sauce. Thai green curry, chicken katsu curry and teriyaki chicken are also on offer.

Desserts move well away from the cuisines influences the mains – think creme catalana, tiramisu and a stem ginger pudding. A local delivery service is available.

Excellent restaurant serving delicious pan-asian food, the restaurant is clean and the decor is nice. Very confused by the bad reviews...

Our food arrived luke warm. The Prawn Thai green curry was totally tasteless  - mild is an understatement....I left all of the slimy prawns as I wasnt sure they were even cooked but that was at least a saving grace for the veg which at least had some bite simce they were esentially raw. Resembled dish water. Horrible is an understatement.

The Chicken Phad Thai- also comepltely bland, lacking in every flavourful ingredient - like a plate of overcooked crap pasta, where was the  texture, the flavour, the colour?

Totally overpriced and utterly underwhelming. I will not be back and this makes me sad since I well remember a time a few years agorwhen this was one of my favurite little local take aways.  They cant even be bothered to do a decent Pho anymore.....Very Sad  times.


Something has happened to this restaurant, the standard and service has declined since I moved to stoke newington 4 years ago and discovered this gem. It is such a shame as it was a trusted favourite. The saddest thing is that the staff no longer seem to be smiling. Please bring back happy, delicious Itto.


I had the salmon fried noodles and summer rolls. The summer rolls were fine but not as good as the ones at the BYOB Vietnamese joints in Shoreditch. The main noodle dish wasn't special. Good size portion of salmon which was tasty but the noodle sauce didn't taste that flavoursome and a bit more like a greasy Chinese than fresh Asian noodles. I would go to Salvation in Noodles or Mama Lan if you're in the area looking for this kind of food.

Every local I know in Stoke Newington lists Itto as one of their favourites. I see it has had a lot of bad reviews below but I know it's had a 'facelift' since last year. I moved to Stoke Newington in January and I've always been amazed at the service, decor in restaurant and quality of food for both delivery and in restaurant. 

Ordered some spicy noodle soup through Deliveroo while in bed with a cold, and I wish I hadn't. Soup base is really one dimensional and bland, with old stale dry meat and vegetables. Mushy noodles. Never again.

Awful. Vegetarian gyoza were filled with a frozen vegetable mix which had turned to mush, the only identifiable vegetable was sweetcorn. In gyoza. The pad thai was swimming in sweet and sour sauce. The worst faux-Asian food I've eaten in London. I'm forced to give it one star just to post this. 

Never again. I went again there yesterday for about 6th time over the past several years. I ordered a starter and a dish I've ordered a few times before as a main, and I was unpleasantly surprised when it arrived that it was tiny. When I brought this to the attention of the stony-faced 'waiter' he treated me with scorn, blamed me for my choice and refused to do anything about it! As I was there with group of friends I was left with no choice but to sit there seething and in the end pay for that pleasure. This reminded me of a couple years earlier when I ate there while pregnant. The waitress stared at me and my belly, making me very uncomfortable but blatantly ignored when I tried to get her attention for service. And another time I ordered takeaway and when I got it home both the soup and the tempura were full of oil- disgusting. I don't know why I keep giving them a chance, but I WILL NEVER EVER EAT THERE AGAIN

The restaurant was very disappointing. The place was stuffy and hot. The service was not very good. The portions are too small. I went with my family (we are all Asian) and definitely you can find much better Asian food than this in many places, and at a much better price. Avoid this place!!!

awful, we ordered through justeat, and the mains were foul. Entrees, just barely edible, but cold. I would definitely recommend stearing clear of this resaurant's delivery service.

Itto has recently had a complete facelift and the menu has been upgraded to boot. It's stylish comfortable and the atmosphere is as always friendly and warm. It's one of my favourite local restaurants in which i always feel welcome. I'd suggest trying their Vietnamese Pho and spring rolls as they're perfect sunday food. It'd be nice if Time Out would give them another go seeing that they've changed so much. I love it.

Itto is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in London, the place is cute, the service is great and the food is lovely. Great value for money .
