Me and a friend visited the restaurant over the weekend and it was an awful experience from start to finish. To start off with, the salad was extremely basic and looked like a Tesco packet of salad with some pomegranate sauce on top, the bread...More

Beyond the tourist zone in London but worth the trip. We picked up the 38 bus at Piccadilly Circus across the street from Waterstones, and 40 minutes later hopped off at Kingsland High Street, then a 10-minuite walk. Easily worth seeking out. Friendly attentive but...More

I ate here on Friday. It was at 5pm so I could only get a table for 50 minutes. Staff were friendly. The venue is cosy. The food was a little greasy & my aubergines were lukewarm.

I went there on a Friday night with my boyfriend and my mother. I really recommend the mezze sharing platter and the lamb, which was very tender. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place!

I visited the Stone Cave a number of times and most recently yesterday. Always friendly service and great food. I can highly recommend the menemen (with Turkish sausage) and the ‘healthy lunch’. Lovely food and a great place to either meet friends or just read...More

We often eat in the Stone Cave if we are going to a performance at the Arcola. Sit down by 6 and you can be finished just after 7. Arcola is 5 minutes away. Try the Meze, ridiculously cheap and delicious. Yummy

Having eaten menemen at several establishments in London I can confidently say this is the freshest and most deliciously spiced breakfast accompanied by beautiful warm bread and draft beer from when doors open. Excellent service and a great atmosphere. 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!
