Jeremy Corbyn has pressured Islington Council to stop a restaurant extending its licence.
Seasons, on Stroud Green Road, currently has a licence to serve alcohol from Monday to Sunday between 11am-midnight.
It has applied for a variation, so that its garden at the rear of the premises can be included in the lisence.
But this has sparked complaints from nearby residents concerned at noise levels.
And Islington North MP and Labour leader Mr Corbyn waded into the debate.

In a letter to the council licensing committee, he said: “As you know, Stroud Green Road is a busy area where shops, restaurants and residential properties intermingle.
“I’d suggest that it would be inappropriate to allow this restaurant to contribute additional noise and disturbance which would inevitably cause misery to residents in surrounding properties.

“I trust that in these circumstances, the council would prioritise the needs of the local community.”
In his application, Neil Gill, from Seasons, said: “All customers will be reminded of consideration to the public and noise levels when entering and leaving the premises.”
The application is scheduled to be heard in a town hall licensing meeting at 6.30pm on Tuesday.
