“English Breakfast”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

There are many places (from workers cafe to luxury hotel) that claim to serve a good English breakfast. However the true essence of a good English breakfast is not on fancy presentation or the number of different items on the plate, but a breakfast that is 'hearty' in appearance; plentiful in each item (2 rashers of bacon and 2 sausages are a must); and, has quality of ingredients. Add to this the satisfying feeling when you have digested every last mouthful, then, and only then, is satisfaction achieved. For this experience, try Pera – you won’t be disappointed!

“Tasty food, friendly service”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

My friend and I popped in here for a late lunch on a rainy Friday afternoon and found a very warm welcome. Our vegetarian meze was excellent, I had the best and tenderest (and most reasonably priced) lamb shank I've had for a while, and my friend enjoyed her chicken shish kebab. We'll certainly both visit this friendly restaurant again.

“Good Food Good Service”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

The Pera was recommended to us so we decided to give it a try. We didn't book but we were made more than welcome. Glad we visited as we enjoyed every minute.. The lady serving at the tables was very friendly and helpful and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Will certainly visit again next time we are in London.

“Memorable Lunch”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We booked a table as we heard that Pera was a lovely little Turkish restaurant. The seafood platter is a favourite of mine along with the entrecôte steak! The manager and staff are always welcoming and friendly. All in all an excellent meal.

“Surprisingly mediocre.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We booked a table as we heard that Pera was a lovely little Turkish restaurant with excellent reviews and were worried that we wouldn't get a table. The manager and manageress were amazing and they treated us as though we were having dinner in their home! Unfortunately the food was bland compared to Turkish restaurants in Dalston and Green Lane. All in all it was an ok budget meal but we won't be going again.
