I came here to try their classic Turkish breakfast, the Menemen, and I really enjoyed it. I went for the option with halloumi, which was very creamy, with a perfect balance of spices, well cooked eggs and served with warm bread.

My husband and I had a very nice early evening, two course meal here from the 'pre-theatre menu. Pleasant, attentive service; good, freshly cooked food (including complimentary flatbread & dips) and warm, congenial ambience. We don't frequent this area, so have nothing to compare it with for quality or price, but would certainly go back.

We booked Pera restaurant for 8 people for a surprise meal for my mums 66th birthday. The manager could not do enough and was incredibly attentive, food was delicious and reasonably priced (considering how expensive Islington has become).

We visited on Saturday for dinner for my friends hen party. There were a large group of us and the team at Pera couldn't have been more helpful. The food was amazing from the Turkish bread to the shish and the service was great. The restaurant has a lovely ambience, is really inviting and warm. Will certainly be back. Murat... More

Living in Angel we are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining but Pera takes the cake. Pera has a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere, my husband and I genuinely enjoy our time sitting at the venue. The food is handmade, we are talking crushing chickpeas in the kitchen for the best hummus I have tasted. The complimentary appetiser over... More
