50% off at Gem

Islington's answer to tantalising Turkish, Kurdish and Greek cuisine, Gem truly shines brightly in the local area.

Tastecard members must call in advance and mention the tastecard so they can indulge in all manners of scrumptious fare at a fantastic price.

Recently renovated with a fresh look and rejuvenated with an invigorating new menu, Gem has once again opened its doors to locals and tourists alike.

A mouth-watering medley of meze options serve as the ideal way to tantalise the taste buds for a fantastic meal, featuring such delights as the divine king prawns, sautéed in a white wine, garlic & spicy tomato sauce, and the delectable succuk & Halloumi combo, paired with tomatoes and cucumber.

Equally as exquisite are the main courses, which offer an eclectic and extensive taste of the cuisine. Just a few noteworthy examples include the hearty stuffed peppered, filled with feta cheese, rice and spinach, and the sumptuous beef stiffado, slow stewed beef cooked with shallots and red wine.

Also serving some traditional desserts, diners at Gem have the opportunity to savour a superb three course Turkish meal in a delightful environment.

    Booked with card easy over phone, greeting was warm and welcoming. They wasnt overly busy so gave us a choice of seats. Our waiter was friendly and not overbearing, checked in on us to see if everything was ok. Now the food. DEFINITELY. get the prawns for a starter. They are SO FRESH and tender. We also had kofta (if that's how you spell it) which were delicious not dry at all & well seasoned. For mains I got the chicken shish and OMG they were so moist and delicious. We will definitely be returning to this great gem of a restaurant ;). We had 3 starts, 2 mains,3 glasses of wine & a coke came to 53 including service. Great value. "
