Shishlique of London is a charming little Turkish restaurant that’s all about barbequed meats and mezze. You’ll find Shishlique on Chamberlayne Road around Kensal Rise where the menu features as much for vegetarians as it does for meat lovers, and from it we’d really recommend ordering some hummus, dolma, baba ganoush and a few haloumi skewers to share around the table as a starter. Then, for your main, we’d have to recommend one of the sharing platters for two, three or four people, each of which arrive with a selection of chargrilled and skewered meats. Shishlique is a little gem and it’s also good for a drink. Reservations are wise.

I went on a Monday night - a quiet time - and it was just fabulous. The hummus wrap and lamb chops were done to perfection, and the service was gorgeous - really, really lovely people.
Consistently excellent in every way. Lovely staff, fantastic food, byo wine, no waiting. Always good. My favourite local restaurant.
