Mediterranean

Delamina was opened by husband & wife team Limor and Amir Chen, who’s journey began with a residency at ShoreditchHouse, followed by their first restaurant, Delamina EAST in Shoreditch.

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.

    Not impressed sadly. The service was poor, despite several people stood at the door it took over 5 minutes to be acknowledged and taken to our seats. The table was crammed in too closely to others and my partner had to lean forward and move his chair every time the table next to us were being served - not ideal. No explanation of the menu or the specials, when the food arrived it was placed in front of us without telling us what it was. When we paid there was no ‘how was you meal’, just took the money and left. In regards to the food we paid £9 for hummus (ridiculous) and £8 for the smallest bowl of aubergine, everything came covered in tahini too. Disappointed as we love this type of food but felt it was overrated and not worth the price or experience sadly.

    Hi Juliet, thank you for the feedback. Delighted you enjoyed the food, but very sorry the service was not up to scratch. We are working hard to fix this as we, like many of our peers, struggle with staff shortages and inexperienced waiters. We hope to see you again soon and are certain that you will notice an improvement

    unfortunately after good experiences here before Covid, we had a bad experience. Portions were smaller than in the past, service was very inconsistent, and they twice brought us raw lamb (charred on outside, raw in the middle). Even after sending back once, it came back entirely raw in the middle. We didn't receive an apology.

    Booked it then read the negative reviews and thought maybe we made a mistake. We sat outside there were heaters which made it a pleasant experience. Food was delicious service was friendly. I did use the toilet and inside was very busy. If you don’t like being in a crowded restaurant maybe opt for the outside seating! Will definitely be back to try the other dishes

    The restaurant was very busy at lunch and 2 of the diners in our party were continually bumped as people and waiters squeezed past. Our waitress was rude and made little attempt to apologise when 2 diners in our party ordered mains which turned out later to be unavailable. This seemed poor given that it was a Saturday lunch booking and we were not told of the limitations when we sat down and were choosing our food options. We had to constantly flag someone down when we needed additional drinks etc. The food was quite dry and the plates were small give the prices. We chose not to have dessert given the experience. Will not be returning.

    We have been to Delamina twice before and thoroughly enjoyed, but experience today was not to their standard. Initial dishes were good and Holly, one of the staff explained well, though annoyingly other staff were rushing us to order. We wanted to enjoy 2nd course so we ordered a little later but second dishes came within minutes and seemed the food was just warned up and did not taste good. The cauliflower , their signature dish seemed cold and tasteless. After that Holly kindly asked for desserts and gave us menu and all of sudden we were handed a bill and told no time for dessert by another staff as booking only for 1 hour and 30 mins. No warning or anything. We complained and manager tried to rectify situation giving coffee and discount on our bill with due respect. With all this hassle our experience was sour. Seemed the staff were just serving but not interested and not considerate for customer's needs and making an enjoyable evening( except for Holly). Even for cleanliness, tables are too near each other with no space and toilets unhygienic and filthy with water all over the floor. Surely the customers experience should be top agenda for this class of restaurant.

    The food is amazing but expensive. Very small dishes and for 2 people we ordered 4 dishes and I was not super full when we left £85 later (no drinks). The service is not great, I tried to get attention so many times but the staff is talking to each other or just in their own world… same last time I visited.

    We waited 20 minutes until a server came to our table and that was because we asked them to. The food arrived first and the drinks 10 minutes later. We had to ask for our drinks twice and additional items too. When the food arrived My eggs were quite raw. Very busy and not enough staff and as a result I Won’t be going back.

    Food is absolutely delicious - we opted for a number of dishes to share including the cauliflower, courgette, hommous, roast potatoes, prawns and chargrilled chicken. Flavours are lovely . Service was quick ( they advised they needed are table by 8.00pm we booked for 6.15 ) Beware some drink are outrageously expensive- we ordered 2 aperol spritz- these weren't on the menu - they were in small wine glasses ( not the usual long drink you get ) so we ordered another 2 and only found out that these 4 small drinks cost £40 !! Would definitely eat there again but would chose drinks carefully.

    Food was ok but the dishes are all very similar - lots of hummus, chargrilled, yoghurt drizzled - lacks freshness or variety. Value is questionable - meat dishes which are smaller than starters cost £20 each. Red wine arrived so warm it was like mulled wine. The mint tea (£3.50 a cup) had around 6 leaves in making it the most expensive cup of mildly flavoured hot water in London. The service was very rushed - it was obvious they wanted rid of us to fill the table again, and this despite diners being crammed into such a small space it was impossible to hear anything. Just another example of a mediocre London rip off. Wouldn’t return.

    We have eaten at Delamina many times over the years. On Friday we went after the theatre and were really disappointed . The portion sizes have been reduced and prices gone up significantly. I know prices of raw materials are increasing, but I don't think portion sizes should be reduced as well

The waitress was lovely, attentive & very knowledgeable about the restaurant & dishes . The food was lovely , beautiful spices & so tasty . So nice that I would have preferred the portions to be slightly larger on some dishes . A nice experience & will definitely visit again.
