The price was good for the lunch offer

We decided to try this restaurant's lunch special. £7.95 for 2 courses was appealing. Starter was ok which was the soup but, one of us swapped it without grief for another starter and the main course (chicken shish) was very fullfilling. As the chips were late, they suggested to take that off the... read more

Decided to check it out for a lunch due to the good reviews and the lunch time offer but was left extremely disappointed. The bread was burnt and rock hard. The lamb donner was so greasy. I have had kebabs at restaurants all over north London and have never seen anything like this before the meat was swimming. The service... More

Divan provided food for 50 people for my birthday party. The food was excellent - piping hot, on time (we pre booked it to be delivered) and of their usual great quality. Our guests loved it as did we.

When the owner of a restaurant treats you like a family member and nothing is too much trouble to please your taste buds, then you simply can't go wrong. ENJOY and go back and enjoy again. A tiny bit costlier than usual Turkish cuisine but then again this is no ordinary Turkish cuisine this is top class food with Turkish... More

I regularly to Divan for a bite every now and then. They are constantly serving great food. More authentic than restaurants in turkey. One of the best lamb cutlets you can have, thier Mixed grill platter is very rich , tender and juicy. I always go for Haloum cheese and Sujuk (sausage) for starters. They never let you down.
