This place was recommended by my best friend and yes I would recommend this to everyone looking for a different taste in food and cuisine It's busy and space is limited...... Well priced £20 for 2 people including drinks / small tip Turkish delight's that's a perfect way to say thank you costumer.

A restaurant is supposed to make things easier for you, for when you don't feel like cooking and also to make you happy in a sense. Wood oven fails on both points. I have been once with my family and the staff are very rude and arrogant and not helpful at all, besides they are always trying to rush us.... More

I have been here a few times, doubt I will be back. I used to come here because of the nice flavoursome food and good service. Things have changed! The portions are a lot smaller and the quality of meat is questionable. The salad which consisted of tomatoes, cucumber err that was pretty much it. Fatty ribs or chops not... More

I went to the restaurant with my family and had a really great night, the food was amazing and the service was spot on, attentive waiters and very pleasant. We will definitely return.

We keep popping in here without booking, and even at busy times they always seem to find another table. Obliging staff, when you can get their attention, and tasty food, when it comes! Always absolutely packed with locals any night of the week, that says it all.

Wood Oven provides friendly service, tasty food and decent portions at a reasonable price; better then Efes, which we had visited 2 days prior and felt ripped off by Efes prices. Staff came over on several occasions to check we were ok, which was a nice touch. Downside was the pushy waitress named Nashir, (I think that was her name)... More

Tasty food..will not visit again, I found a very long black hair in a kebab from the mixed grill. The waiter merely dismissed it and comped the meal. I however was disgusted and will not be eating there again. The toilet is pretty disgusting too.
