Good Vegetarian Options
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.

Excellent food, inventive, full of flavour and varied textures. Particularly good for veggies, but the meat eaters were very happy too. Lovely surroundings, simple and homely but not kitsch. It does get a little noisy as it's small and some of the customers the night we were in were not the type to moderate their voices out of respect for others - but a minor point, not within Delamina's control, and we will definitely be back (in fact my third visit and everyone I've taken here has loved it).

Visited the place with some friends and we had a great time. The food was delicious and the portions good. One of my friends has a nut allergy but the staff made sure there is no trace of nuts in our food. Overall a really nice place to dine and would highly recommend.

We shared a selection of small plates and never made it to the large plates. Everything was very tasty and freshly cooked, well spiced but not too spicy. Great Veggie options. We asked for one dish without chorizo but it was served with meat, it was immediately taken back and replaced when we mentioned it and never appeared on the bill. Wine was good and reasonably priced. We forced ourselves to have dessert. Service was good and the food came quickly but in two stages so as not too overload the table. Generally a young crowd around Spitalfields all out for a fun evening.

Celebrating a birthday. Given a corner table and birthday dessert with candle, very much appreciated! This is one of my favourite restaurants in London at the moment.

The place is small and buzzing, we were excited to taste the food. The starters were nice. Then unfortunately the mains were not that great. Apart from the whole seabream which was good, the monkfish dish initially came with just 2 very small pieces of monkfish (sharing our dishes with in total 4 people). We did send it back and when we got the new plate there were four small pieces of monkfish, however it was very dry so not nice at all. So we send it back again. The good thing is they took it off the bill.
The other main was the special which was sirloin steak. Not much steak and a whole lot of vegetables. So wouldn’t really recommend or come back

The food was amazing and great value for money so would definitely return. The service was also really fast and attentive. However the place is quite noisy which ruins the ambiance slightly and drinks were quite expensive.

Almost perfect but one of our party had a salad which was sadly drenched in dressing. Otherwise we really enjoyed the evening.

Food was incredible.
Service was excellent.
Coffee was delicious.
Started off loud in there but it was very busy at that point and quieted down after 20 mins or so.
Will be visiting again and recommending to everyone.

The food was fabulous, the service good and a lovely ambience for a Monday evening when it’s expected to be quiet but was quite busy. If I had a complaint it would be regarding glasses as I personally like wine in a wine glass and gin in a gin glass but it was tumblers for all - just my personal preference though. We all loved the menu and will definitely be back.

Food was wonderful and I think I would go as far Tod ya I had the best lamb kofte of my life, our waiter was great and helpful with recommendations etc, I loved the low lighting, my only issue was it felt too cramped and I don’t dining like that, but I do understand it’s a popular London restaurant and these can be cramped. I would definitely recommend paying them a visit!!

My family and I had a lovely Sunday brunch. The ambiance was just what we needed for our catch up. We had a discreet corner table with lovely views out the back and across the restaurant. The egg dishes and coffee were superb. I’m looking forward to coming back next time I’m in London to try the rest of the menu.

This is a great restaurant in the Spitalfields Market / Shoreditch area. They serve original, Middle East inspired dishes that can be easily shared between guests. The service we received was excellent. The only criticism would be that the seafood dish with prawns and whitebait was tasty, but maybe a little expensive for its size. The cocktails are original and good, for example the Lost in translation cocktail.

The food was amazing as ever but the noise level was off the charts. Struggled to have a conversation. The service wasn’t great either. Our waitress simply didn’t seem to care about us, we had to ask multiple times for stuff, practically beg to be served and have the table cleared. It’s a real shame as the food there is also incredible but that really impacted our experience.
