If you are look for healthy fast food then there isn't a better option. Great selection of Turkish kebabs and staff are very friendly. Has the added bonus of being able to take away and bring your own bottle.

Nicely busy restaurant where you can be crammed into tables but the atmosphere is buzzing. Family orientated, great value and good size portions.

My boyfriend and I have been eating at Wood Oven since it opened and it's perfect healthy, fast food. The menu is simple but offers all the classic Turkish dishes. We always opt for the mixed grill for two and struggle to finish. Can't get better food for the price.

Being the local Turkish restaurant from where I live, having been to Wood Oven just a couple of times in 5 years says everything. This restaurant is very popular with the locals as its packed on a daily basis and fair play to them, however the food here is mediocre and average at best. I visited this week with my... More

A second branch has recently opened, opposite the older restaurant and it is appalling. Be very careful and clear about which one they seat you in. I called the older one (the number given on Google, next to the image of the older shop), made a booking for 15 and confirmed it was BYoB. When my party arrived at the... More
