Long standing and amazing Turkish* restaurant here in Stoke Newington. This place is as close to an institution as it gets in the area, and dishes are as good or better as in some of the hyped up alternatives.
*Most “Turkish” places in Stoke Newington are actually Kurdish, by a huge percentage, but that is not a subject I’m willing to touch in the context of a restaurant listing.

Great little tapas restaurant in Stoke Newington with super friendly service. Food isn’t necessarily cheap, and the specials easily beat the regular menu. To make up for it, even he cheapest wine you will find here is better than anything at most other restaurants.
They also have a really nice space hidden away downstairs that’s available for larger groups or parties.

Another great Turkish/Mediterranean classic here in Stokey. Good for breakfasts, lunches, dinner or just a coffee any time of the day. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, and nice food.

Very nice place for breakfast, lunch or dinner… the food is a nice mix of Mediterranean and what your parents would expect. Lovely conservatory space in he back as well. The only thing to note is that sometimes you can’t get a foot on the floor for the prams, but then this is Stokey.

Yum Yum is a very good and much hyped Thai restaurant here in Stokey, with a nice cocktail bar on the side. Food is very nice, but due to the size of the place things can get a bit busy, and it seems waiting staff (aka Chinooks) have been trained to turn over customers as efficiently as possible.
The owner, Atique, is a genuinely nice guy though, and I sometimes wish they could just go back to the times when they occupied the smaller and much more intimate premises of what is now the bloody Foxtons on Church Street.

Local branch of a pizza chain, built on the ashes of the amazing original Brixton restaurant and its offspring (sold for an insane amount of money (£27.5m!) to publicly traded Fulham Shore in 2015). Another chain restaurant to follow food chains Whole Foods, Nandos, Whetherspoons, KFC and Foxlow into our hood.
Good luck competing with Il Bacio, Zaza Express and the other locals.
