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.
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
