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.

Excellent, high quality food, friendly staff who will cater for your requirements. Not your run of the mill kebab shop, their food is of very high quality. Good to eat in or take away. Open til late.

Without doubt the best kebabs in Finchley and the Borough of Barnet. Every late night out deserves a stop off at Divan. The lamb or chicken shish kebabs are huge and served in tasty Turkish bread and lavished with tangy garlic of spicy chilli sauce and fresh salads. The queue says it all on a Friday or Saturday night, and... More

This place is at the far end of the high street at finchley central so probably doesn't get the passing traffic of a lot of the other turkish grills (so many now!) in the area. It does seem to have a lot of regular customers which is always a good sign. We ordered a mixed grill and a house special... More
