I visited this restaurant today with a friend of mine for a late lunch. The food is good and the service excellent. The portions were generous and the food reasonably priced.

We have visited Pera several times and have always had a great experience - the 'Mixed Grill' are great value and an excellent selection - beer and wine very reasonably priced and the complementary nibbles always go down well - worth booking especially for evenings at the week-end or on football match days!!

Just a quick meal turned into a delightful discovery here. Great food, we had a veggie mezze platter and a desert. Tasty fresh and nice. Wine was cheap and good quality. Service great too. Given the unassuming nature of the place and the great prices this gets my 5* rating. :-)

We came into the restaurant early prior to a game at the Emirates, and enjoyed the meal very much. Value was enhanced by a free beer offer before 7pm, but the food was plentiful, tasty, and promptly served by friendly staff. Fairly quiet, but decent atmosphere despite that. Two courses was plenty, and we would not hesitate to come here... More

Attracted to Pera by the many positive TA reviews; we (party of 6) weren't disappointed. Sited just across the road from Islington Town Hall on ever-upwardly-mobile Upper Street, Pera is a lively, colourful and atmospheric Turkish/ Mediterranean restaurant. Not posh or stuffy, but warm and welcoming. Starters are priced modestly, but are nevertheless decent-sized portions. We used them as tapas... More

Had a very nice meal here before seeing a show at the Union Chapel. Service was friendly and we were not rushed at all. Complementary Olives, Bread and dips were nice and all four of us enjoyed our starters and mains. The meat was nicely flavoured and moist (Mixed Grill) and the potatoes were to die for. Will definitely come... More

I recently visited Islington with a friend and her daughter. The reason for the visit was to install the daughter in her new flat as she would be attending the local university. Having unloaded everything at the flat we wandered into the main shopping area in search of somewhere to have lunch. Almost the first restaurant we came to was... More

There are so many Turkish restaurants in Islington I must forgive myself for failing to try this one before. It turned out to be first rate. £8.95 for two courses. Good value. I had excellent houmous and falafel starter and the chicken kofte main course. Really lovely. My husband enjoyed tremendously his spinach borek starter and lamb kofte main. Very... More
