Unlike most Turkish eateries in this neck of the woods, this basic canteen doesn’t specialise in grilled meat. Instead, diners get to choose from four or five meaty stews that tempt the passing foot traffic on Kingsland Road. A subtle culinary enterprise it certainly is not: with a few exceptions – such as the excellent stuffed pepper concoction that occasionally makes an appearance – most of the dishes qualify as dull-but-hearty refuelling food that’s far from ideal on a warm summer afternoon but fine for a chill winter’s night. The bread, which you’ll see being pounded into shape if you pass the place at 10am, isn’t that great, but the rice puddings are dangerously moreish.

Service is always friendly, the food is cheaper than any other place I know in Dalston to eat in so I really don't know why anyone would bother complaining about pricing!  It's cheap stew dishes done well, you see & pick what you eat for stew or select something else to cook, I hear they do Kebab's there now too.  Cantine-like in a good way I think.  One of my fav's


Don't assume the menu prices displayed on the window as you walk in are correct as we ate there and we're charged more than that advertised. When I questioned this I was told the menu was old but the new hand held one in the restaurant was correct . Sadly this appeared to be wrong also!!!!!!!
