About Ishtah Restaurant

On London’s Hendon Lane, Ishtah Restaurant offers a fresh new take on modern Turkish cuisine. Formerly known Izgara Restaurant, Ishtah has been making waves in the foodie scene thanks to its unique approach to classic Turkish cuisine – the motto in the kitchen here is ‘minimum fuss, maximum flavour’. Despite their commitment to keeping it simple, the food on offer features complex taste combinations that are out of the ordinary yet incredibly delicious. Go for a set menu if you want the best value, or select a number of starters and mains to sample and share with your tablemates. We recommend any of the grilled creations – try out the lamb cutlets, the adana kofte, chicken shish or the karisik izgara (mixed grill) if you can’t decide on one thing. Discover more at Finchley’s Ishtah Restaurant by booking your experience in advance!

Delicious food and friendly service. The staff were helpful with my disabled mother and ensured she was comfortable. The atmosphere was buzzy, without being too noisy.
