Description: Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area. A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community. Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic. Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests. At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts. We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom. Fabio & Jan

Wonderful experience at The Banc. Great service, quality fresh food and warm atmosphere. Staff are attentive and not intrusive . Lamb chops were a delight. Will be back

Dear MarioJAV

It is with great joy to know you enjoyed your visit to The Banc.

The Banc is all about fresh food with many twists and more importantly a professional, courteous and humble service.

We are on the verge of changing our menu for January and would love to have you back to try our new dishes since you thouroughly enjoyed the lamb chops.

Thank you for your kind comments and see you in the near future.

Happy New Year from The Banc Team

Best Regards,

Fabio & Jan

Upon witnessing the rapid rise of The Banc on trip advisor, I decided to bring the family over and continue the festivities at The Banc. Needless to say the restaurant was not overly crowded being Boxing Day and all. We were warmly welcomed in by one of the owners and ushered to the upstairs seating area. Upon seating the waiter wished us seasons greetings which was a nice touch and of we went with the orders. Chicken Liver, Sucuk and Ismir Salad came with great timing, followed by salmon fillet,t-bone steak and chicken shawarma. All very tasty, all fresh and all beautifully decorated.
So far so good, then I mistakenly went the wrong way to the toilet and saw the outdoor garden area which was full of people, I managed to eventually find the toilet and then go back to my seat. I asked the waiter and he said it's always so busy and popular with smokers for shisha. Finally both owners came up and asked us about our evening, we adore it and mentioned it was influenced by tripadvisor and it did not disappoint. So guys as promised here is my review to The Banc. Wonderful service,excellent food,great staff (Ricky and Claudia) and the owners gave a nice finishing touch. Currently 2nd? Stay like this and there is only one destination! The top!

Have been a regular at the Banc for over a year now. Some of te best gourmet Turkish cuisine with a twist. The Shisha without doubt is the best in all of London. I have been here with friends, families and work colleagues and never have I been let down. Cen and Fabio are the most accommodating hosts, whether it's your first time or if you're here pretty much everyday. Hope 2014 brings you guys as much fortune as the past year.
