Turkish restaurants are a dime a dozen in London, but if you’re in the area of Dalston or Shacklewell and you’re looking for real quality when it comes to Turkish cuisine, you’d do well to turn to Cirrik Restaurant up on Stoke Newington Road between Arcola Street and Miller’s Terrace. This isn’t your run of the mill Turkish – it’s got class and atmosphere, and the chefs are experts when it comes to the traditional ocakbasi charcoal grilling techniques of the Turkish region of Adana. The restaurant is dedicated by patron chef Huseyin, sadly now passed but renowned back home for his perfect preparation of the cirrik, a bird from southeast Turkey. You might not find this particular delicacy on the menu at Cirrik restaurant, but be prepared for a Turkish feast prepared by Huseyin’s culinary descendants like you’ve never experienced before.
Cirrik is a great restaurant, the food is fabulous and the service is excellent. The staff are helpful and friendly. It's reasonably priced and a good atmosphere. Hihgly recommended.
The food was divine, and service prompt. The mains came with interesting mix of salads, including onions in some sweet pomegranate juice. Highly recommend the mixed kababs plate. We went on a Saturday, and reservations are recommended.
Great food, service was a bit relaxed but it was a nice environment and the restaurant had a nice buzz. Will go again for sure.
Charming service as always to go with most authentic food. The roasted onions and flat bread are worth the 4 hour journey to London. It helped that the Yakut Turkish wine is as fabulous as ever
Authentic Turkish food at a reasonable price. Kebabs are cooked on a grill in the main restaurant and are served with salad, rice and onions in pomegranate molasses. No frills about this place but worth a visit for the food alone.
Food wasn't as good as usual and we had to wait for our table which was a bit inconvenient. Standards are usually very high here, hence why the score is still high.
Nice place, nice food. We went there on a Saturday night. Portions seems small but they are filling! The hummus and bread are amazing! We'll be back
Fantastic meal, love the mezzes and of course the grilled meat - the lamb ribs were outstanding! Will definitely be back again, great value and comfortable setting.
Nice family run place, great food and a cut above the usual prosaic Turkish food. Friendly staff and quick service, would definitely go back again
Very good food & authentic atmosphere. I specifically loved the starters, great hummus and cacik. Be prepared to wait a while for your order though.
