Have dined at this restaurant and found it to be good on previous visits, until this weekend when I happened to pop in for lunch. The quality of the food was poor and didn't seem as fresh as I had in the passed and the portions small even by a child's standard. Even having had nice meals here before I... More

fabulous options on the set lunch deal even for non meat eaters, wonderfully warm welcome, friendly, caring, helpful service from cheery staff, fine wines and best of all perfectly cooked fish. Sea bass fillet can so often and easily be served dry at inferior establishments (inc.some on Upper Street itself). NOT at Gallipoli Bazaar - here my artistically presented sea... More

I haven't visited Islington in a long time and was taking a walk along Upper Street and found the Gallipoli Bazaar. Quirky interior with what look like authentic Turkish fittings was interesting. Went in to sample their set lunch menu and was pleasantly surprised. I am not very knowledgeable about Turkish food, but both the starter and main were nicely... More

I've eaten here many times. Always a consistently good all day breakfast. Perfect hang over cure. Turkish breakfast or english fry up never disappoints. Attentive polite staff and a serious Turkish coffee. Don't queue up at other breakfast establishments just try this place. Even better on a sunny morning sat outside

...that I've been to. The general standard in this area is very good, but this restaurant was very poor. The décor is all very authentic but frankly I could cook better myself. The kofta starters were actually ok, then it all went wrong. The Chicken Tagine was no more than boiled drumsticks in a stock. No depth of flavour, no... More

I've been there before but arrived in London at 21.30 and turned up at Gallipoli without a booking. Food was good. Kalamar to start and turkish sausages for main course. Nice house wine. I thought service was very good; busy restaurant and no issues about going back.

An atmospheric restaurant, which plunges you into the Turkish theme. Very squashed together tables, food wasn't that great and staff did there best to ignore at times. Wouldn't visit again, but not that bad.

A bit of a wild card for us since we'd never tried Turkish food or ventured to London before, but it was worth it. Although our waitress was a little forgetful on two occasions, with our water and bread to accompany the mezze dishes, and it was a little chilly because we were sat by the door, the food was...
