The Banc

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 Banc says
The Banc has become one of London's top venues for mouth-watering burgers, juicy steaks and the ultimate shisha/hookah experience. With its newly refurbished 'retro style' restaurant look and buzzing atmosphere in both the restaurant and the outdoor shisha lounge, The Banc is the 'must go to' venue.

A meat-lovers' heaven! So many burgers and steaks to choose from. I had the beef medallions and it tasted amazing. Everyone else in the group also enjoyed their food. A little bit far from me, but a great place to hang out with friends. We didn't use the shisha service, but apparently it's one of the main reasons they attract a lot of customers. Great service overall.


This restaurant is great for a catch up with friends for brunch or dinner. Fuss free food that tastes great. The service is also great and very attentive. The menu is extensive with something to suit everyones taste. The burgers are amazing and very filling. I had the BBQ chicken which was really good with loads cheese with extra mac and cheese on the side. The steaks are also amazing and really big portions if you are feeling extra hungry. You will be spoilt for choice with the starters so I recommend sharing a few between you and that way you get to try everything. 

The place is amazing, not only does it look good but the food is the best around! Amazing atmosphere and customer service is 10/10. Highly recommended place😊

The service is always very friendly and the food is so tasty! Love, love, love the Banc!

I've been going to The Banc for years now. They're easily the best establishment I've gone to that it feels like home. The staff, the food, the management, atmosphere and last but not least the shisha. I cannot fault them at all. Keep it up guys! You're doing a brilliant job!

love this place, visited with my girlfriend and was extremely happy with the service and food!

The quality of service and food is excellent, never disappoints, best shisha in London by far. The staff are also very friendly.

Amazing range of burgers, shisha and service. North Londons hidden gem.

Love this place, helpful staff, great food and the owners are always there to help.

Food is to die for! Fresh, flavoursome and delicious. Highly recommend this place!

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.

Amazing food, service. Great personal service from all staff. A gem in Tottenham

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!

Came here for a friends birthday dinner. The food was amazing and of a good portion size. Staff were also very attentive. After we had our meal, we decided to try the shisha garden outside. They had a good space, not too cramped and a variety of different flavours. It's a great place to relax and socialise. Since my first visit I have been there again 2 times and am looking forward to my fourth visit. 

If you want good food at and quality shisha then I highly recommend The Banc. You will not be disappointed.  

Had my birthday dinner last year.the service was excellent.Oh the food not to mention "superb"
