The ingredients that are used in the dishes are OK but unlike other Turkish restaurants in the area there are no free starter dishes.

Been going to this small Turkish cafe/restaurant since it opened a few years ago and am never disappointed by the absolutely delicious food and courtesy of service. Everything is well cooked, fresh and well portioned. It is comforting to know that whatever time you visit the food is always freshly prepared. There always seems to be free tzasikii with pittas...

Came with a group of friends for a 40th birthday celebration. Could not fault the food or service. Nothing was too much trouble. Waiters very attentive and friendly without being overly familiar. Made us incredibly welcome. The food was incredibly well priced (particularly the platters) and arrived piping hot and well seasoned. The barbecued onions in particular were to die... More

Fresh pita and tzatzicki chicken kebabs with salad , tossed in piquant dressing, rice and a huge chilli on the side. Fast a furious and absolutely delicious. The cheapest meal I have had for ages and so good. Not for the... More

Not a place to spend an evening as tightly fitted in tables and at times quite noisy, usually very busy, be prepared to wait. Excellent food served very fast as they want to turn tables as quickly as possible. I have noted that the portion size has shrunk somewhat since it opened. It is a BYO (bring your own bottle)...

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
