Constolia

Constolia's dining room

Archant

Few things are more satisfying than a Turkish meal when you are hungry, and in anticipation of my visit to Constolia I had hardly eaten a thing all day.

Restaurant info:

Constolia, 205 - 207 Holloway Road, N7 8DL

Tube: Holloway Road Tel: 0203 583 3121 Web: www.constolia.com Mains: from £7 Wine: from £12.50 a bottle Children welcome: Yes Disabled access: Yes

A good job too – as the portions here are something to behold.

We decided to go for a sharing vibe and kicked off with cold platter. This was your classic mixed meze – humus, ispanak, taramaslata, kiser – with stuffed vine leaves thrown in.

All tasty, but they really were cold – straight from the fridge.

Next we had the Constolia special kebab, which was huge; lamb and chicken doner and shish, lamb ribs and chicken wings all coated in a delicious marinade before being grilled.

It came with rice and salad, and despite how enjoyable each mouthful was, we gave up about half way through. Luckily, the helpful staff were happy to bag it up for us – bargain.

Constolia is good value – you can eat for under a tenner and have some left to take home.
