Good Vegetarian Options
Delamina EAST was opened by husband & wife team Limor and Amir Chen, who’s journey began with a residency at ShoreditchHouse.

Limor is the driving force behind the menu, drawing on her eclectic heritage — she was born in Tel Aviv to a family of middle eastern and European origins — and inspired by her father, a passionate cook who exposed her to the myriad flavours, herbs and spices of the region. Limor’s recipes are influenced by her interest in healthy eating – grilling, roasting and using herbs and spices to celebrate the raw ingredients, including many vegetarian dishes. Her self-taught and intuitive approach results in dishes that are wholesome, healthy and with a unique flavour combination.

The food is accompanied by a drinks list that includes exciting wines from the Eastern Mediterranean, alongside house cocktails that incorporate the same aromatic herbs & spices used in the kitchen.

A very relaxed place. Seating around the bar and tables around the walls. The decor was subtle and restful. The food is great with a good mixture and meat and vegetable dishes with eastern med flavour.

The food was great but couple of the staff were a bit unfriendly and we didn’t appreciate the really noisy cutlery work that the staff choose to do right next to our table without any thought to the atmosphere.

The space is cozy, and it was quite noisy for a Sunday night, however our waiters were outstanding and took the time to explain the dishes we ordered. The food was exquisite, my family and I enjoyed every dish we ordered. I 100% recommend this restaurant to any newbie or lover of this type of cuisine.

Lovely meal. Starters in particular (‘earth’ section on the menu) were amazing. Cocktails were gorgeous, service was friendly. Atmosphere was lively but not too noisy to chat comfortably. Thoroughly enjoyed my evening.

I booked the table for Valentine's day. We were the first ones to arrive on that day and we had a nice chat with the waiter. Ordered pumpkin salad and lamb koftas with cauliflower and potatoes, which were great!
It was a bit noisy but it did not matter that much. The staff seemed pretty organised. Upon the departure we received lovely sweet bites with orange and chocolate to take away!
Definitely recommend

The food was amazing, and the decor is amazing, but I feel like the lighting was way too bright for a dinner meal. The huge downside I have to say is that I felt we were really rushed. We literally sat down and 30 mins later we had the bill on our table. The service was far too quick. I had food left on my plate, taking my time and the waiter came over took the empty plates and then said to me, oh you eating that? YES. Give me some time! He stood there and waited until I ate it. That’s really not on. I would like to go go again; but this has really put me off!

I have been a couple of times, the first and second time I went the food was fantastic, the last 2 times the food has been average and cold. Seems like the food hasn't been freshly prepared and perhaps reheated? With that said the service is good and the decor is nice.

Hope you're not going backwards with the quality of the food preparation. It feels like the kitchen has everything (or almost everything) already prepared in the fridge before the start, to serve it quickly to the tables, just after a hasty 'put-all-the parts-together-in-the-plate and warm it up in the microwave'. It is a feeling: but that is the feeling you eat.

Freda I can assure you that all food is freshly prepared for each service and we do not have a microwave in the kitchen. Some ingredients are prepared ahead of time (mis-en-place) to ensure guests don't have a very long wait, and are finished off in the charcoal grill or oven. Hope this puts your mind at rest and that you will visit us again
