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

I have been here a couple of times and the service and food has always been consistently good. They serve a very yummy pitta bread with marinated olives and "home made" chilli sauce as a starter. The main course portions are excellent and overall the food is very good. Would recommend for a couple, group of friends or even a... More

My favourite mediterranean restaurant in islington. Excellent service and very friendly staff. If you wish to eat proper mediterranean foods, this is the place. Simply delicious! You must try mixed grill, roasted lamb shoulder do not forget to ask for deserts menu.

This is a really great place to eat. Lovely food, nice, relaxed unpretentious atmosphere and very friendly staff. The prices are also very reasonable (especially compared to others around). Couldn’t recommend more highly. Best value for money on Upper Street, hands down.

If you looking for a place that has good fresh ingredients with a chilled relaxed vibe then give Pera a go. Enjoyed a yummy breakfast here with friends recently. Weather was lovely so we enjoyed the outside seating watching the world go by! Latte was very good too (dislike when made too strong, this was perfect for me!) lovely freshly... More

Had a lovely, leisurely dinner at Pera on Upper Street. What a gem of a place. Cosy atmosphere, great ambiance, really friendly accommodating staff and absolutely gorgeous food. There was lots to choose from on the menu but we settled for 2 meat meze and 1 vegetarian meze. The selection, quality and quantity were all excellent. Don't usually indulge in... More
