Mediterranean
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.

Great food with interesting flavours. We shared 6 or so smaller dishes, and all were fantastic. The Charred cauliflower was the star dish!

Delmina feels like a sanctuary out of the hustle of Shoreditch. We found it difficult to choose from the menu as everything looked fantastic - and tasted even better. Lots of options for vegetarians. Thanks, we will be back soon!

Food was very tasty as always and the team there are always amazing!

The sweet potato was slightly hard but the portion was so large we were able to eat around and still enjoy it

Our table was also near the service hatch which has a loud and quite unpleasant buzzer to notify the team food is ready which did get slightly grating when a lot of plates were coming through

But only small points of feedback on an otherwise great meal

Delicious & attractively presented food. Broad range of dishes on menu with choice of size on many. Lots of vegetarian items. Service timely & friendly. Weekday lunchtime quiet, & easy to find a table (no need to book). Evenings busier.

Beautifully decorated restaurant. Amazing cocktails - perfectly balanced flavours - I had the When Harry Met Galia - sublime. The service was attentive and efficient.
The best thing though was the food- really carefully thought through dishes with just the right amount of spice and flavourings - really beautiful, everything we ate was amazing with some unusual flavours and pairings. Can't wait to return!

lovely food but not very friendly service, rushing us from the start of picking drinks and food all the way to paying for the bill whilst the restuarant wasn't full yet.

The food and ambience is exceptional. The feta, quinoa and mint fritters are incredible! The service however was less than acceptable! We were rushed throughout and ignored by the staff. I would love to go again but I am hesitant because of the service by the staff.

Another great evening at Delamina East, just one thing to comment on food: while it’s as fabulous as always, I found some dishes to be too sweet because of the use of dates molasses. Depending on what you end up choosing you may have an overall pretty sweet taste. Next time I will make sure I balance out the selection of dishes to avoid that, but really overall each dish is a great compilation of flavour, texture and amazing smell!

We loved it ... the location, the atmosphere, the seating, the overall look and feel, the service, the cocktails were amazing and we cannot wait to return for more of the food - we loved everything we ate. Our plates were left totally empty. Special shout outs for the cauliflower and the sea bass.

Thé food was outstanding and so different from usual middle eastern food! The chicken thigh was my favorite along with the feta quinoa fritters and the tahini. Would go back to this one over and over again.

Incredibly attentive staff, who made the evening feel very special. I didn't even need to remind them it was a birthday celebration! They just surprised us with a very unusual and specially prepared birthday cake.

Imaginative food, great ambience and brilliant customer service. Definitely worth coming back many more times.

We found this gem of a restaurant because we were attending an event nearby. Our meal became just as big a part of our special evening. Amazing wealth of flavour and texture while also being healthy. Plenty of veggy options too and we left knowing we want to come back to sample the rest of the menu.

Although the food was good, we felt persuaded to order more than we needed and consequently left some. The ‘signature’ cauliflower dish we were encouraged to order seemed to appear on all adjacent tables. It left a ‘bad taste’.
