About The Iskele

In an area often recalling the bustling market streets of Victorian London, you’re transported also in place at The Iskele, to the grandiose world of the Ottoman emperors. Located on historic Whitecross Street, The Iskele is one of the Barbican’s most atmospheric eateries and one of the most diverse Turkish restaurants in London, and there are plenty of photo opportunities offered simply by the authentic decor of bricks and urns, ornaments and mosaics, lamps and chandeliers. The food is just as picturesque, and even more tasty – best of all, as well as great versions of all the familiar Turkish standards there are some particular specialties not so common to come across in London, like a smokey aubergine-and-lamb ali nazik kebab, traditional Turkish casseroles and The Iskele’s well-known spicy pots filled with anything from king prawns and coconut cream to Scottish sirloin and vegetables.

Great service and a wide selection of food. My guest is a veggie. So it was perfect for both of us on a cold day. Mark
