I have been going to Divan for the last 12 years and will always go there. The food is amazing well cooked and reasonably priced. The service is as good as it gets. They're open until very late and still busy just shows how popular they are. My favourite is the chicken shish wrap... In writing this review I'm suddenly... More

Divan is an excellent local Turkish Take Away/restaurant with good honest food served in healthy portions. I not saying expect 3 Michelin star cuisine but good value local food from healthier Chicken Shishs to the Heavier Lamb Doners. For me the Take Away works better. I have had meals in the restaurant part but for some unknown reason the experience... More

I have been going to Divan for many years. Have been there with my family, with work colleges and with friends. Whoever I have brought here has been impressed with the food. They have a huge selection of starters, hot and cold. Whenever I'm here with a big group we order loads of bits as they are all so tasty.... More

This is our local kebab house near our business. The owners and staff are lovely but their food is pretty basic. Most people have a take-away but there is a nice restaurant within. My husband eats from there at least 3 times a week and has gradually said that its not as good as it used to be. My biggest... More

Divan in Finchley is the best restaurant of it's kind in London. I've tried them all in Dalston, Stoke Newington etc, durum on the next corner and even the poncey ones in the West End and none come close. They've got so many regular customers which speaks for itself. Great service, high quality food, amazing prices. If I was told... More

Excellent food, all freshly cooked and served in generous portions. Friendly service, good value wine and drinks. If you like charcoal grilled food and kebabs in particular then this is the place.
