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

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!

I love this place. Good atmosphere, great service. More canteen fast food but you can take your own wine and food is great every time. There's wood oven special is great to share. So good food at a fair price what more can you ask

What a place, packed with people eating in and a queue for the take away. The food is very good, had 2 lamb kebab's and chicken kebab and they were great. They came with there own carton with rice, in another carton was salad and then there were two tubs of sauce and a pita bread. Well worth the money.... More

It's more a cafe style resturant and the food is excellent it's what I say one of the best Turkish restaurants around the price is great and menu is really good you don't pay for a lot of useless food but food actually you would eat. Recommend it.

Went for a quick lunch here and was impressed with the price/performance. Plenty of waiting staff were prompt and efficient with bread a dips offered before grilled kebabs, followed by a complimentary taster of Turkish desert cakes. Food was freshly prepared and well presented.
