Serving authentic Anatolian cuisine with Mediterranean flare, Yildiz Ocakbasi Restaurant is a favourite among local diners in London’s Finsbury Park. From lamb shish to iskender kebab, the cuisine at this popular restaurant is all cooked to order using fresh, seasonal produce and all-natural ingredients. The restaurant offers fantastic vegetarian specialities including imam bayildi (aubergine stuffed with tomatoes, garlic and onions), barbunya pilaki (haricot beans with vegetables) and the delicious vegetarian kebab. The chefs at Yildiz Ocakbasi know how to whip up some incredible seafood – try the sea bream cura served grilled with salad, lemon and bread. Wash it all down with a glass of red wine or a cup of Turkish coffee, and you’re good to go! Found on Blackstock Road just steps from Finsbury Park station, Yildiz Ocakbasi Restaurant offers a fresh new take on classic Turkish cuisine. Book ahead to secure a table.
Despite being very busy on match day, the staff were friendly, efficient and the food was great, all be it a little expensive at £64 for 3 kebabs and 5 beers.
Very busy when we visited on match day, ( recommend booking) but food and service still very good. Friendly staff and great atmosphere in this authentic Turkish restaurant
Visited for a pre-match lunch and although busy the level of service and quality of food was very good. Good value for money too. Will definitely be back.
Lovely food and fantastic service. A little lacking in atmosphere but that could have just been the midweek visit. An absolute must for all vegetarians.
