Popular as always!

Ate there for a quick bite after work on a Friday night with a work colleague. Be there before 7 or be prepared to queue. Likely to be sat on a table with others (which doesn't bother me in this style of restaurant). Calamari to start was the frozen norm. Not good not bad, just fine. Mixed... read more

This is such a lovely place, staff are so friendly and always welcome you when you arrive I go to this place once a week sometimes that's how much I loved it! Chicken is so nice & they give free tzasouki (yoghurt & cucumber dip) with naan bread which is lovely.

I have written a review about this place a while ago. I did go back there for lunch this time and thought they might have read all these terrible reviews and made some change. God damn was i wrong! Its quite simple, they are for some reason very busy during lunch time every single day. They are also very busy... More

It feels like the show 'Cheers' when I'm here. Everybody knows your name! 8 years and they've never failed me. Miss this when I'm away. My friends and family from abroad want to come here as soon as they land. NYC and LA people don't mess when it comes to their food. Value for money and always friendly. Keep up... More

Having just been to this restaurant today all I can say is AVOID. Lamb Shish was tough, my poor daughter had to constantly spit the meat out as she could no longer chew it. Mine and my husband's combinations of lamb and chicken shish was the same tough and burned. Portion sizes very smal. Calamari is frozen and really oily.... More

Unfortunately I will have to disagree with most of the positive reviews on here. Read on if you are interested in an honest non biased review. I live in South Woodford. When Wood Oven first opened it was fantastic. It was back a few years ago before the Turkish charcoal kebab house phenomenon really took off like it has now.... More

Fantastic, alway has been. As a local resident I absolutely love wood oven. The service used to let them down however I stopped in recently with my sister and the service was impeccable. Wood oven special is an absolute must, plus the feta cheese pastry to begin. BYO saves you splurging £30 on a £6 bottle so enjoy!
