Yum. We were staying in Shoreditch and took a walk to dinner here. Was a fun walk through the neighborhood; this restaurant is tucked away on a side street. The space was excellent--relatively small, with just a few tables and an open kitchen. Very cozy....More

The touch of citrus flavours to cut through those punchy Turkish ingredients was insanely divine! Do not bypass the cabbage sharing plate.... or the lamb belly... or the cauliflower... or the bacon. Basically - go in there hungry!
