consistently busy (always a good sign!) restaurant on George Lane in s. Woodford, Really nice staff, really excellent food, huge portions! Something for everyone (vegetarians well-catered-for), plus you can bring your own wine, if you want.

Visited on a Saturday before going to movies. Handily situated between the Odeon and South Woodford tube, we were attracted by the open kitchen and heaped displays of skewered meats in the refrigerated counters. Minimal focus on décor and ambience - but the food and service made up for it. The waiter was friendly without being over familiar or fake-folksy,... More

We were in the area, and fully enjoyed a family meal for 5. We ordered and shared the hot appetizer plate and the mixed grill plate. Very reasonable! All meats were juicy (not dry) and the 6 or so varieties were more than enough to satisfy everyone of us. Attentive service with friendly extras. Enjoy..

Their spread of kebabs are awesome. Everytime I'm there @ woodoven, I end up over indulging. The choices are varied and the kebabs are succulent. They serve you with turkish tea while you wait for your order to be served. Please note - the kebabs are made only after you place your order, so it takes around 15-2 mins for... More

One of my favourite restaurants and the chicken shish is hard to beat. Lovely food generally and the complimentary bread and tzatziki is always welcomed! Highly recommend for great food.
