Third time here, Went with friends on a busy Saturday. Staff are really attentive even when busy which is why it makes me go back even if I know it's busy!! Amazing food! Especially the beans. service always top notch. Only problem is parking but once that's sorted it's great!

The food here is pretty good. I wouldn't say it's the best as it's not completely authentic, but I would definitely recommend it.

I started coming to this shisha cafe about 3 years ago now and can honestly say I've never a bad visit. The Staff are super friendly and helpful, they are always willing to recommend flavour combinations, the shisha itself is always on point! It doesn't burn out after half hour or so, such as a lot of places do! The... More

Another great visit to the Banc. Introduced family members to this nugget in North London. Customer experience on this visit was excellent! Food, fabulous as always. Lamb steaks with handcut chips, green bean and tomatoes. Delicious! We all totally loved the food and atmosphere. Definitely a place to visit again and again.

We live close by and finally wanted to try The Banc on a recommendation of a friend. Even though we booked our table at very short notice, we got a very cosy spot on the upper floor. All through the night the service was incredible, nice and friendly and super helpful in choosing the dish suiting our tastes best. So... More

Description
Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area.

A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community.
Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic.

Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests.

At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts.

We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom.
