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.

The food was outstanding, especially the 'Earth' options. Do yourself a favour and try the watermelon dish. Superb vegetarian options and great wine choice. All for excellent value. Will be back. Soon.

This restaurant is a little gem. The food is amazing. They have the most wonderful organic red wine from the Lebanon, which although pricy is worth every penny. I always leave this place feeling like I have had a wonderful meal, had brilliant service and most of all that I have eaten a healthy and delicious meal. The zhoug is wonderful. I think I have tried the majority of dishes on the menu now but still can never wait to go back for more.

Decor and ambience of the place is very east London, cool and fun. The starters are inventive and tasty to start the meal off with some sizzle. The meat and fish courses are a tasty and well presented and also filling so order appropriately to avoid wasting the great food. Thoroughly recommended for dates due to the small and intimate nature of the place backed up with friendly service staff. Some really good house cocktails in there too.

Was tempted by everything on the menu, but fortunately resisted ;-) Shared a Pita Balagan & Charred Cauli, both were excellent , even though not a huge Cauli fan! Had the Crispy spuds as a side and the Squid for a main, spuds were yummy, squid was OK (slightly on chewy side). Overall a very good meal, reasonably priced sparkling wine, the house Red Wine will not be on my buy again list, plenty of others to try on menu though.
Overall a very good meal and excellent service atmosphere :-)

We asked to change tables because it was very noisy and the manager very kindly arranged it.
The restaurant is smaller than it seems in the pictures.
The waiters did not paid much attention to us, we had stand up twixe

It’s a lovely little restaurant with really warm and friendly staff ! The danger with the menu is you’re spoilt for choice and might not fit through the door on the way out! We had the fluffiest pitta with two well seasoned dips to start. Theh we shared the squid and the whole fish wish were both gorgeous, well cooked, lovely flavours and went well with their accompaniments. I do wish the waitress as suggested we get some sort of side of vegetables for the whole fish nevertheless drizzled with the lemon oil was lovely.
As someone who’s not keen on chocolate desserts I was tentative about ordering the brownie but it’s was warm and light with the halva giving an earthy sweetness. We chose to get pistachio gelato with it and I could eat that by the tub full. It genuinely tasted of pistachio and had the smallest of violet/floral aftertastes!
