Ishtah is one of those restaurants I frequent regularly, and it's one of the few I can go with family, with friends, with clients, and always feel its appropriate. Having been many times, the food is ALWAYS good and without doubt over time, the service...More

We stopped for a quick dinner and the food was good and tasty. We hadn't been here for a few years, but only the name has changed. Quick, polite service, but the place lacks atmosphere. Recommended for the food, though.

If you have a little more time than usual and think of having brunch on a Saturday morning, then this is the place for you! Breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings are a new initiative for this restaurant, but well worth trying out. I tried...More

Ishtah Restaurant offers contemporary and traditional regional Turkish / Mediterranean cuisine brought to your plate in a honest and opulent way. With its comfortable warm service, this casually elegant restaurant sets the scene for an unique dining experience in a North London Restaurant where we can seat up to 110 diners in total, 60 of which is available in the private area. We believe great food is best shared, we can cater for the lone diner but also any event or function, please Contact us for any enquiries you might have.
