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, Strut & Cluck 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 Russian and Iranian 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.

Service took forever, wasn’t particularly friendly and even got us the wrong bill at the end. Other than that though, the food was great and the ambiance is really lovely. Waitress probably just had a bad day, happens.

Wonderful food, veg forward, fresh, lots of herbs and sauces, and the halwa parfait is gorgeous. Cauliflower was much better than last time, melt-in-your-mouth and so well balanced. Pitta with seasonal toppings was phenomenal both times. Service is friendly and quick. Will definitely be back!

We normally love Delamina and visit it regularly. However this one time that we decided to bring guests over, it was highly unpleasant. The shawarma had such a strong smell that it was impossible to eat and the koftas were so undercooked that you could clearly see the pink mince. It generally was very disapointing compared to our usual delamina experience

Very disappointed to be sitting downstairs. Have enjoyed previous visits for lunch and dinner. Made the reservation back in September asking for a table upstairs but this was ignored. We had to chase several times for service. I understand December is a busy time but felt our experience yesterday was sadly disappointing after highly recommending this restaurant to many friends previously.

I have been here several times before and loved it. I have recommended this place to several people. The food and service has been great BUT this time I booked online the week before, hoping for a good table as I was taking my Mother for her 83rd birthday lunch and I had told them so, as I was asked when booking, I thought she would particularly like the atmosphere and that they would look after us but I should have known better when they led us to the basement which was 2 small flights down There were a few people there but they were just finishing up so we were left alone. The service and food was still good but it was really disappointing as we were alone in the cellar unlike upstairs where it was really buzzy . I am angry with myself for not saying “no” in the first place to the basement . I would have gone somewhere else If I had known . I didn’t want to make a fuss but in future I will not eat in basements !

We reserved a table and were rather dismissively shown one near the door after a long wait standing in the entrance - please note: some better welcome would have been nice. After being given a better table, we found our waitress attentive and pleasant, the food arrived quickly, well-presented and cooked. Sunday lunchtimes in the West End will always be busy, but the place coped well with a very full restaurant. It is a friendly, attractive, well-decorated place to eat. We will probably go there again after the next morning concert.

Interesting tasty food, varied menu (although not huge), and sensible portions - not too big, not too small. Nice choices for vegetarians. At 6.00pm a calm ambience, by 8.30 full and energetic, but not too noisy. Very pleasant and helpful service. Appropriate value for the location and style.

Food was good and tasty, but not exceptional.
Some dishes had too much 'fluff' and very little substance (for example, the pita balagan itself was fine, not more, but was tiny and surrounded by loads of whole cabbage leafs. I prefer dishes to have a bit more effort put into them than just stick a bunch of cabbage garnish on there for a fuller looking plate. I know it's a starter, but still..). In contrast, the whole fish main I ordered (which was pretty small) arrived with only a small piece of fennel as a side, nothing else.
Flavours were tasty, but nothing too exciting. Felt like they could use a bit more fine tuning in order to be great. But that's me putting my critique hat on.
Nonetheless, a good meal.

Our group of 5 went to Delamina for the first time last week and we all loved it! There is a real buzz and energetic vibe in the restaurant and the food is delicious. Even though we ordered a range of small dishes, we were all totally full at the end! We had someone with a birthday in our group and the restaurant provided a lovely dessert with a candle exactly as requested! The service was excellent too. We would all definitely go again. :)

Delicious Israeli food. The poussin main course was excellent and very fresh. Squid main course was a little bland. Starters and drinks were excellent as was the service plus it was so lovely of them to offer my partner a desert on the house with a candle for his birthday

I have given Delamina an overall rating of 5 stars because I think that the food was outstanding. We went for a light lunch and between us shared 3 starters and a main. Based on these, I want to try everything on the menu!!! The okra fingers were amazing, the courgettes 'two ways' were beyond sublime, the avocado salad with quinoa was delicious and the special main of salmon was perfectly cooked. I visited with a pescatarian but next time cannot wait to try the turkey schwarma amongst other things - I saw it go past... yum! The restaurant has a laid back vibe. At lunchtime there were a mixture of business people, shoppers and friends having lunch. It's still classy and the service was generally good. I look forward to going back soon!

Beautiful Eastern Med food so well presented. Attentive aand helpful server who helped us choose. Delamina is popular and we noticed it full at lunchtime and well as the evening so be warned. This is not surprising as you will find the menue well priced.
We will be back for sure.

Really enjoyed our pre- concert supper, food was delicous, generous portions and well seasoned. Friendly helpful staff, very glammed up for Halloween, who looked afte us well.
The only gripe was that next to the large windows it was quite cold.
Thanks very much, we will come again.
