We went there for a late lunch. The food was really nice, reasonably affordable. I could imagine nicer decoration, yet, I give them 'Excellent' rate because the meal (share for two people) was actually excellent. Fresh, looking and tasting mouth watering, generous portion. Thank you!

This restaurant in Dalston, Hackney has been in operation since 2002. It has continuously offered a wide range of authentic Turkish food, inspired by Ottoman recipes. The dishes are prepared with a well defined range of cooking methods and the aromas coming from the charcoal grill are mouth-watering. The Stone Cave offers breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, fresh juices, Turkish tea, organic tea, coffee, cocktails and alcohol. The location is ideal, easily accessible with Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland close by. The ambience of this establishment is enhanced by Turkish lanterns and unusual stone-like walls which provide a Cappadocian atmosphere. Belly dancing and Turkish music is a feature which in combination with the above, make this arguably one of the finest Turkish restaurants in East London. This is somewhere to come as a couple or as a party where you can be guaranteed a fun time and not be rushed!
