Visited with both work colleagues, wife and children (ages 6 & 10). Good friendly atmosphere, small restaurant but felt very welcome. Limited food menu, but nice selection of dishes and starters. Good list of wine and drinks. Food was excellent, all served in a timely manner although slightly disappointed that there was no children's menu or at least half portions... More

Enjoyed the two course set lunch, humous and mixed maze absolutely delisious, mains of lamb were lovely, staff were friendly, wine was crisp, homemade cake was good, I will defiantly return. This restaurant makes a really nice change from the over priced yummy mummy territories that Upper Street is littered with.

Visited here after looking for good restaurants in the area. The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely and you are made to feel very welcome. The service is great without being too in your face. The food was very good and nicely presented, but was at times perhaps not as tasty as it could have been. There was something missing... More

eaten here many times and it is always first class. the food and service are always impeccable and the value (especially since they take a tastecard on a Friday) is superb. There is no point highlighting any particular dish as I've eaten almost everything on the menu and the quality is high throughout. give it a try if you live... More

My wife and I had some time near the O2 Islington yesterday and luckily I had seen the very positive reviews for this awesome place. Friendly staff and the most delicious food at very reasonable prices - what more could you want!? We tried a good cross selection of cold Mezze, Seafood and the Mixed Grill, as well as a... More

What a great little restaurant slightly closer to Highbury Corner than Islington Green. Delicious food, good service and reasonable prices. I had the mushrooms "stuffed" with prawns and scallops while my companion had the borek - in fact we shared the two starters - both highly recommended . The seafood meze and the shoulder of lamb main courses were equally... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner at Pera and didn't want to leave! The food is so delicious and fresh, it came quickly but was not rushed. The service is great - not pushy but you aren't left waiting. We were happily surprised by the costs too- really reasonable! Perfect place for a date night- highly recommended- Turkish food... More

Me and my boyfriend ate at Pera's last night and had a really good night. The food is good quality and there's lots to choose from. There's a lovely atmosphere which is helped by Yesim the restaurant manager who is very nice and welcoming. They accept tastecard's on weekend's which most restaurants do not and it's 50% off all food... More
