Our journey began with a passion for healthy eating instilled by our Eastern Mediterranean heritage. Home cooking revolved around grilling and roasting ingredients and produce that are full of goodness, seasoned with the fragrant herbs & spices of our childhood.

The mum and family chef, Limor, regularly used turkey meat for its amazing nutritional properties. Thus Delamina EAST was born, initially as a pop-up at Shoreditch House called Strut & Cluck, showcasing her turkey and vegetarian recipes with an eastern Mediterranean twist.

Our restaurant in Shoreditch soon followed, where we serve dishes inspired by our home cooking using seasonal local ingredients and ethically raised & sourced produce from land and sea.

Absolutely delicious food, very attentive waitors and waitresses and fast service. The coffees were a little bit on the weak side and perhaps the portion sizes could have been slightly bigger. One suggestion for the pitta/bread and humus side dish, would be to ensure 1 brown bread and 1 pitta per person, so everyone at the table gets to enjoy both!

Was recommended the restaurant by my brother’s friend. I went on a Monday night where the restaurant was still mildly busy with a nice atmosphere.

The staff were lovely, attentive and always there to assist with menu choices and their advice was extremely helpful.

The food was extraordinary and I would recommend the restaurant to friends on this point alone. It also has a nice feel to the place and is clearly well run.

Definitely will be attending again.

Great cocktails and fantastic food - interesting combinations of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines and full of flavour. Really friendly and efficient service, with a laid-back atmosphere. I think the quality of the decor doesn’t match the quality of the food, though, which may be one reason (the only one I can think of) why not completely rammed on a Sat evening. Would definitely go back.

I loved this restaurant the first time I visited, and but on this second occasion I feel like the food was a bit too cold and the turkey was quite dry. The cocktail and desserts were excellent though!

We had a wonderful evening at Delamina East and really enjoyed their food! Everything was outstanding and delicious, although I find it difficult to describe the cuisine. Maybe modern near east? I would highly recommend this restaurant for the food and the very friendly service! At 100 GBP for four of us, it was good value for money and we will certainly return when we are back in the area.

An unusual, innovative venue with attractive food, but I left feeling very bloated. Maybe that was my misunderstanding of the menu options, but it may have reflected a desire to sell more product. However, I would certainly return and try again. I liked the vegan choices, though there was perhaps too much creme fraiche.

We enjoyed a very nice lunch at this fashionable Spitalfields area restaurant. We were looking for somewhere close to Liverpool St Station on a trip to London and this was perfect. 10 mins from the station with a nice atmosphere great service and very tasty food. Reasonable price for the food but not cheap..expect to pay around £40 a head for lunch/brunch with coffee dessert and glass of wine.

This was not our first time in Delamina East. We went there a few times when it was still called Strut & Cluck and since day one it never disappointed us. The staff is friendly and efficient, the food is great and it's not expensive. Needless to say that we'll definitely go back there.

Delamina East is a small family run restaurant not far from Liverpool Street station. We were warmly greeted on arrival and service on the whole cannot be faulted. We had cauliflower and the aubergine and. hummus dips to start. Both were really nice and good portion sizes. I had the lamb shawarma and my husband had charcoal grilled sea bass. Both were nice but portions were a bit small for the money (he said if he hadn't ordered the roast potatoes on the side he'd still have been hungry). For dessert we shared the kadayif cheesecake and it was a really nice way to end the meal. I would also recommend the house cocktails, especially Jaffa I've Mist You, so good.

Now the whole experience sounds lovely doesn't it? It was, but it was so noisy that we couldn't have a decent conversation, which for me, spoiled a bit our date night. So would I go again? Possibly, if it was on a quieter night, not on a Friday though, not if you want to actually talk to your date.
