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.

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.

Strange that ‘excellent food’ isn’t one of the options above…

I would recommend it for the food and interiors. Though I don’t even remember what the new name is - its not good - whereas 'Strut and Cluck' was brilliant!

It was a lovely restaurant and we enjoyed our evening but the food wasn’t overly impressive - the eggplant dish had 2 small pieces of eggplant and the smallest amount of zucchini. The bean salad had about 5 beans in it! The chicken dish was nice but needed some sauce.

The food was so delicious. We ordered so many dishes but because it was all so fresh and healthy we didn't feel stuffed at the end of the meal. A great place if you're veggie as they have so much choice, I'd recommend ordering a selection and then splitting between yourselves. I loved that they have Lebanese wine and that they included dishes that were inspired from the region (I've been to ME inspired restaurants before and they haven't even served mint tea, or middle eastern desserts!) The staff were lovely and even though we went slightly over our booked slot (sorry!) we never felt like they were kicking us out, despite it being really busy. Would definitely recommend and will be going again!

I was really impressed from the start. I was able to book online and change my time (a few times) with no problems, even though I arrived a bit earlier on my last change. They were able to seat us at a table.

There were gluten free options on the menu that my partner was able to order, as she is celiac (so it is hard to go out and eat. )

If you love red wine, order the Malbec, It was amazing!

As well the staff was really accommodating, very friendly.

Every little thing made it a really enjoyable date night.

Best find ever on Google.

Definitely a regular when back in the area.
