“Consistently very good food” results from the menu of small sharing plates at this modern Levantine duo in Marylebone and Shoreditch, created by Israeli-born cook Limor Chen and her husband Amir. There’s a “buzzy atmosphere without being too noisy” and a playlist that channels the Tel Aviv vibe.

“Exceptional Middle Eastern food” and “lovely staff” tick all the boxes at this modern duo in Shoreditch and Marylebone, from Tel Aviv-born cook Limor Chen and husband Amir. “It’s hard to find interesting and well-priced venues in Marylebone, but Delamina manages both”. It’s a “small-plates, sharing concept and every dish is delicious”, with a “beautiful combination of flavours”“great with allergies too”.

“Really interesting food combinations from the Levant” make self-taught chef Limor Chen and husband Amir’s stripped-down Shoreditch and Marylebone venues worthwhile additions to London’s “Middle East-with-a-twist” dining scene. It’s “another of the small-plate trends with the now-familiar land, sea, earth menu – but packed with flavour”. A natural choice for veggies and vegans, too.

“Part of the new craze for ‘modern-Israeli-style’ cuisine” – self-taught chef, Limor Chen (with the help of partner Amir) provides “a different take on the ubiquitous Ottolenghi or Palomar approach” at this low-key restaurant near the Wigmore Hall – a kind of “British Middle Eastern food”, which “features lots of vegetables, like the spicy okra tempura and charred cauliflower, which are delicious (and I don’t normally go for veg’!)”. “Nice people run the place” too, which is decked out with the “on-trend, stripped-back, filament-lightbulb look”. Its “buzzing and fun” E1 spin-off inspires less feedback, but gets an equally good rep.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Tel Aviv style dish was good and we enjoyed...
Reviewed 25 days ago

"Tel Aviv style dish was good and we enjoyed the Charred Cauliflower. Also the date cake was moist and tasty. The Pitta Paradise was burnt on the bottom and the Vegan dessert was also not great. Having said that the service and ambiance was good. We did not complain as it was a special day and she wanted to have a good atmosphere with the other couple who were celebrating. We will eat there again."
