The Wood Oven is opposite one of my favourite places in South Woodford, so if I want a change from Indian Tapas cuisine then Wood Oven is a good call. Serving up Turkish meze for the South Woodford the place is busy on most days and also serves as a pizzeria. Took my uncle here for his annual birthday treat... More

Starters humous, taziki lovely hot pitta, I ordered chicken and kofti kebab, served with rice, onion and salad, my partner loves the ribs, the food is so delicious served with yoghurt and chilli, I did not want the meal to end, it was so...

Ordered a pizza for take away and found a cock roach in the box after 2 slices. When I returned it the man behind the counter flicked it onto the floor saying it must have fell from the oven during cooking offering me another. Gave me a refund.

I hated this place. Heard good things but our experience was bad food and even worse service. The waiter was actually very sleazy and inappropriate. I heard they changed the chef.

When this restaurant first opened, it was an absolute delight. However as they have became more popular the service here has become quite unacceptable. Miserable and at times quite rude staff, cold pitta bread, wrong orders and you are made to feel as though they are actually doing you a favour by serving you. The lamb chops here i must... More

This was once a nice local restaurant, a refreshing change however, I have noticed how it seems success has had a detrimental effect on the portion sizes, awful service and being rushed along to complete your meal. The table we booked for 8 was already occupied. They refused to provide us with tap water. They got the order wrong and... More

Went to The Wood Oven for the first time just over a month ago. Since then, have been at least three more times as the food is excellent and the service equally so. The home made bread on arrival is a nice touch and the chicken and lamb are delightful. As is the salad, rice and other accompaniments. Would highly... More

Don't expect to spend an evening here, judge it for what it is, excellent food served very fast and they want to turn tables as quick as they can.
