Haringey is the place to be if you love Turkish cuisine because there are so many incredible restaurants that do offer delicious traditional Turkish food and excellent service.

Today, our team is going to share their favourite restaurants in the area that you have to visit if you love Turkish food!

Gokyuzu Restaurant

Gokyuzu is a fabulous restaurant offering delicious Turkish food. We love everything about this place – from the impressive menu and stunning interior to how friendly the staff is. We highly recommend visiting whenever you are craving Turkish food and you are in Harringay.

Starters include hot and cold options such as Soslupatlican (aubergines, onions, tomato sauce), Tabouleh salad (Bulgur, parsley, mint, pomegranate, red onion), Ispanak Tarator (Spinach, garlic, yogurt), Fried Calamari, Falafel, and Mantarli Hellim (grilled mushrooms and halloumi cheese).

The main dishes are just as impressive as the starters. They have soups – Lentil soup, Yoğurtlu Paça (soup with lamb and yogurt), and Tavuk Çorba (chicken soup).

We highly recommend trying the Turkish Pizzas which are known as Pide – especially the Sucuk Pide (which has beef sausage, green pepper, tomato, and mozzarella) and the Ispanak Pide (with Spinach, feta cheese, red peppers, onions, mozzarella).

Of course, the star of the show is the charcoal-grilled kebabs – Chicken Döner, Chicken Shish, Adana Kofte, Lamb Chops, etc. All of these kebabs are served with a salad and rice.

And since you can’t go to a Turkish restaurant and not order a traditional dessert, we recommend the Baklava (served with vanilla ice cream) and the Rice pudding.

Address: 26-28 Grand Parade, Green Lanes, Harringay Ladder, London N4 1LG


Selale Restaurant

The next favourite Turkish restaurant in Harringay of ours is Selale – a place with a vibrant and bright modern interior and an incredible menu filled with traditional food. This restaurant is very popular and favourite of many people.

Cold starters include Hummus, Sarma (stuffed vine leaves with rice), and Baba Ganoush (Aubergine, yogurt, tahini, garlic) while the hot starters include options such as Lahmacun (Turkish pizza), Mussels (with white wine), Falafel, and Filo Pastry with feta cheese.

When it comes to their main dishes, we recommend the Chicken Beyti, the Lamb Moussaka, the Adana Kebab, the Lamb Shish with Yogurt Kebab, and the Lamb Sarma Kebab.

Hala Restaurant

Another incredible Turkish restaurant that you have to visit is Hala – a simple and casual place with wooden interior, excellent service, and a great menu.

Starters include traditional Kisir (bulgur, parsley, onion, tomato paste), Ispanak Tarator (spinach, yogurt, garlic), Greek Salad (with feta cheese, cucumbers, tomato, onion, oregano, peppers, olives), Grilled Turkish sausage, Manti dumplings, and Icli Kofte (meatballs).

We love their Gozleme pastries which is why we recommend you try the Ispanakli Gozleme (with spinach) and the Kasarli Gozleme (with cheese). They are homemade and very delicious.

Our favourite main dishes are Sarma Lamb Beyti, Halep Kebab, Grilled Sea Bass, and the Lamb Shish and Chicken Shish Combination.

Address: 29 Grand Parade, Harringay Ladder, London N4 1LG


Diyarbakir Kitchen

And last on our list is probably the most popular Turkish restaurant in Harringay that you can visit – Diyarbakir Kitchen. It really is an incredible place with a beautiful and stylish interior, excellent service, and tasty traditional food. But we have to warn you to always book a table in advance because they tend to get very busy – especially during the weekends!

We usually start off with the Lentil soup, a Greek Salad with Chicken Shish (tomato, cucumber, onion, feta cheese, olive oil, chicken shish), and a Deep fried squid but they do have a lot of different options when it comes to their starters – both hot and cold meze.

Our favourite main dishes include the Tavuk Kanat Kebab (charcoal-grilled chicken wings), Kuzu Pirzola Kebab (lamb chops), Tavuk Doner Kebab (chicken doner), and the Adana Kebab.

Address: 52-53 Grand Parade, Green Lanes, Harringay Ladder, London N4 1AG
