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.

Great restaurant, the two hour table limit is a little annoying.

What a wonderful place! The design is great. The food is fabulous. And the staff? Unbelievably friendly and extremely professional. Special thanks to our waiter, Sammy and to chef Geri for making our dinner such a unique experience. Cannot wait to go back again!

Wonderful place, excellent and healthy food. Been a few times for lunch (shakshuka eggs amazing) and dinner was super nice. We did not have the best table (by the entrance door) everything else was perfect!

Poor service, you constantly need to waive to get a waitress' attention. The portions are a bit unproportionate to the price, but the food is tasty however nothing extraordinary.

The food is very tasty tappas like plated that you share... but the turkey dish I had the turkey was very tough and stringy and actually scratched my throat ...the rest of the dishes were great. The waitress was very brusque and dropped my dirty cutlery onto me when she was clearing plates etc away and laughed and rushed away....I had to get my dress drycleaned the next day...she suddenly was smiley when the bill came which was a bit more expensive than I thought...£115 for two of us with one glass of wine each and tap water. The food is good but didn't warm to the staff there.....we felt like we were disturbing them lol....won't be rushing back...

Good place off the main busy Oxford Street, really nice ambience for catch up with friends or a casual weekend lunch. I loved my Shakshuka but thought the Za'atar could be more flavourful. Service was lovely would return.

Delicious dinner! We loved all our vegetarian starters and had a variety of mains from fish to meat. Everything was fantastic including the specialty cocktails. It was a great place to bring my university-aged daughter and her friends.

For lunch, I felt the main menu was a little steep on price. Good food, but I wouldn’t go back to pay for a main meal. Small portion that tasted good and had been made with care. But too much for a lunchtime.

The place was nice and food was good, but I didn't like the fact that the appetizers and the mains were brought all at once and were not told this otherwise we would have just ordered mains, and then asked us to leave after an hour and 45 mins which we were not informed while sitting down or when booking. I found this sneaky and tainted our experience.
Food was tasty otherwise.

We had reservation for 2 adults.
Not only did they not set a nice table aside for us,
they would only give us the table at the door where it was windy and cold.
Understandably, they didn’t want to give us a table for 4 but then as we were leaving, there were 2 tables of 4 with only 2 people at those tables.

Keep in mind that the restaurant was not full when we arrived and not full when we left.

I couldn’t tell you what happened in between because they stuck us in the basement. And yes we were the only customers stuck there for brunch on Sunday.

Do not order the tel Aviv breakfast which was marketed as their best seller. RIP off.

Servers were actually nice and efficient.
Location great.

Wouldn’t recommend.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, although it is nicer upstairs (we were downstairs). We had a mixed experience overall. We had some really tasty cocktails which were presented nicely and the hummus and olives were good. The main issue was that everything is overpriced for portion size. The mains started at £17 and you still needed several side dishes to fill yourself up.

The quality was also mixed - the fish dishes were delicious but the meat dishes were a bit chewy and not the best quality. The sides such as pittas and potatoes were very expensive for the few that you got which isn't good in a restaurant where you are encouraged to share. The potatoes didn't have much flavour and were a let down. The cauliflower and okra fries, however, were delicious! So as you can see a very mixed experience, but we wouldn't go back.

The food was fresh and very tasty - our only criticism would be they should consider having a couple of choices of a vegan main course and the same for dessert. Expensive spirits - a double scotch was £18. Warm and welcoming staff.

The pictures on opentable for this restaurant are not representative of the restaurant. According to the staff, they are from their other restaurant.
It is too bad.

We have been at Delaminates a number of times, and would normally rate it higher. This time the service was at
an ok level, we did order three main courses, but one was missing - leading to one of us needing to wait....

Food is amazing and full of flavours, really different. Wine is a bit overpriced for the quality. I didn’t give a 5 star as the service was too rushed, all the food came when we were still drinking our Prosecco. All in all a great evening and will definitely go back!

The food is really nice, but our table was placed in the middle of the entrance, where shouldn't even be anything. So we have to keep leaning away from passing by customers and staff and hold onto things on our table.. I think that's not what you expect when you pre-booked, but perhaps as a good gesture for a desperate walk-in.
The girl who looked after our table had very bad energy and couldn't break a smile once, however the guy was very nice and friendly who brought our food.
Not my first time here and I love and highly recommend the food, but the place is too small for the demand and apart from 3-4 tables, none of them would be satisfactory to be seated at. Shame as it could be amazing!

Food was amazing and the food runner Sammy was lovely. He accidentally spilled some food on my friends cream jacket and the host lady apologised and offered to pay for the dry cleaning. He then tried to come over to apologise but she pushed him (quite forcefully) away from us. It was really disappointing to see staff treated this way and we made a point at the end to find him reassure him everything was fine!

The food was delicious ,original and presented in a very beautiful manner on the plate.
I was even brought a birthday candle on my dessert .
Even though it wasn't my birthday so I am really looking forward to see what I get on my dessert on my actual birthday.
We are definitely going back with friends and family .
The restaurant was recommended by one of our daughters and her husband so transcends the generations
Looking forward to seeing you again in 2020

Excellent food. Every dish deliciously spiced or perfectly accented. We had eggplant starter, cauliflower veg, crispy potatoes (yum), koftas (could be a little more moist) and the tuna was outstanding. Definitely return again. Also wonderful that sparkling water is only £1 a litre. Thanks

We had a most enjoyable experience. The food was delicious, well cooked though the courgette starter was a little over seasoned. Atmosphere was relaxed and there was a nice vibe. We had a birthday girl and her treat at the end of the meal was a lovely surprise for her. Everyone working there was very pleasant. We would certainly visit again and try the other dishes!

Visited Delamina for third time this week - all good but the cauliflower was cold and had been cooked for some time - this was disappointing as it is one of the best options on the Meze list.
