Originally, nothing could compare to gokyuzu. Have always loved their food and been faithful to them for years. However after refurbishment, there are some changes within... service charge appeared on the bill, and they do only 1 stew each day. I have never been fussy about the service earlier, as I used to come there for the quality of food.... More

Came here Saturday night and thankfully we had booked as was a queue out of the door....inside was busy chaos but we were at our table within a couple of minutes. Food was absolutely brilliant and I can not recommend it enough....only criticism was that it took long time to come to the table but I think this very understandable... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 5 years, when I first went there the food was plentiful and the service was always with a smile, I feel there is now some penny pinching happening (we used to get a bite sized portion of baklava with the Turkish tea and now nothing) and the portions seam smaller and the...

A must for real Turkish food, definitely the best in London and I've been to many. The area is in the Turkish community.

There is a reason why this place has been covered in Time Out London, The Evening Standard, has won best Kebab in the UK and has been a success for so long. This place deserves all the hype it gets. Since I first met Gökyüzü I've never managed to look elsewhere for Turkish food in London. Their food is amazingly... More

I came here with my family who are partly from the med area and they told me they love it. They are not wrong. Complimentary veg tzatziki and pita bread loads of great food on the mixed plate and very reasonable prices. The place was packed and it ain't small so they must be doing something right. Not to be... More

Description
Gokyuzu is owned and run by us, the Yavuz family, and has been since we first opened our doors to the restaurant in the popular Green Lanes area of Harringay in 1999.

As a family business it was vitally important to us that everyone worked well as a team. We took a lot of care in selecting great chefs and training our front-of-house staff to understand the Gokyuzu way of doing things… with warmth and generosity. Nothing is too much trouble in our restaurant. Our customers are our guests: just as they would be in our home.

We think it says a lot about our approach to Turkish dining that some of our most popular dishes are our sharing platters. One of our bestsellers is the “Full Platter” – a combination of lamb shish, chicken shish, adana kebab, lamb ribs, chicken and lamb doner, chicken wings and of course rice and bulgur – and we believe that it’s popular because it encapsulates what Gokyuzu is about: everyone can try a little bit of everything and enjoy the experience of communal dining and sharing food and time with others.

We always intended to create a home-from-home restaurant; a warm dining experience, where diners can relax and staff are happy. This is what makes a great Turkish restaurant. Of course, it’s also fabulous when we hear that diners who are visiting from Istanbul believe our kebabs are better than the ones they get at home. It makes us feel that we’ve achieved our goal: a truly authentic Turkish restaurant in London.

We look forward to welcoming you to Gokyuzu
