Levantine | Shoreditch, Clerkenwell

Selin Kiazim originally won lots of fans during her stint at Kopapa. Her own restaurant focuses on Turkish Cypriot cooking and was designed to reflect her "bustling eating times as a child." There's a lot cooked on the mangal grill and a Turkish wine menu from partner Laura Christie.

"We popped into Oklava for a quick snoop and perhaps a couple of plates, took one look at the menu and ended up ordering ferociously, eating until we had to surrender." READ REVIEW

"...service was exceptional, the ambience (even on a drizzly Tuesday night) vibrant, and prices so reasonable. Who needs kebab shops, anyway?" READ REVIEW
