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.
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
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 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
Very good food & authentic atmosphere. I specifically loved the starters, great hummus and cacik. Be prepared to wait a while for your order though.
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.
Very good food and generous portions. Polite service. Decor is casual and minimal. Worth the trek from central London. Highly recommend the visit. Check it out!
