The best Turkish I've ever had - admittedly from a sample size of only 5. Got the big platter between 2 of us and it was amazing. The Lamb and Chicken shish were fantastic, as were chicken wings. Only complaint were the lamb ribs - they were very tasty but had so little meat on them that we were left... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times now. On my first visit I was impressed, large portions, nicely cooked food, not too pricey. But the last two visits have been a let down. Apart from the Mezes, there are only 3 vegetarian options on the menu. This is fine, I do realise it's a Turkish restaurant and the highlight... More

Dear ThisVegetarianLife Thank you for your review and for visiting us. Firstly, we would like to apologise for your last 2 visits being a "Let down" The only reason why you couldn't have the Sarma Veg Beyti is purely down to it being very popular with our customers especially vegetarians. Sarma Veg Beyti is made from Kizartma(Fried Vegetables) from the... More

I have eaten here several times whilst visiting my sister who lives near by and we have never been disappointed! The food is really delicious, service is efficient and the portions are huge. Fantastic value for money. It is best to book though.

As always Gokyuzu never fails to satisfy. The food is delicious, from the stews to the kebabs to the special dishes. The atmosphere is bustling and welcoming and the dishes are reasonably price with fantastic portions, with some always left over to take home. Amazing.

This is a absolute choice for the meat eater! Great grilled choice of meats and fantastic value for your money! Nightmare waiting times if you do not have a reservation, and not very child friendly, no space for prams.

I am often in the Gokyuzu restaurant situated in the Green Lanes, with friends or relatives. We are proud to show them this very good cuisine. The staff is nice, friendly and confidential, we feel good go there at any time of the week, day and the year. Also we celebrate the 1st birthday of our doughter. Lovely place.

Visited here with my family after being told it's the best Turkish restaurant around. Despite being really really busy, we decided to queue along with other diners waiting to be seated. When I say queue, I mean squeeze together more like a cattle market, at the tiny front of the shop. The queuing system is appalling and seriously needs to... More

My family and I were dumbfounded today by the substandard service provided. We had to ask for napkins, plates and general service! The food was nice but the custom service was appalling. Should it be the task of the customer to orchestrate service? I think not. I would happily order take away but will certainly not be returning as a... More

Table for 6 people and booked before hand, we turned up on time and found a very full restaurant. We had to wait about 5 minutes and were then given our table. We ordered different dishes and different courses. The food was lovely and the service was great. I thought the staff were fantastic and they tolerated my basic Turkish... More
