Visited Zengi with my fiancé on a warm Saturday night. Was greeted by two lovely waitresses, service was super fast, and overall very reasonably priced. The Baba Ganoush along with the Baklava are absolutely delightful. Highly recommended.

A hidden gem surrounded by over-priced dross. Great hospitality, made to feel very welcome, met the owners (look out for Ali - he made us feel at home), delicious food at great prices. Don't bother looking anywhere else for Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine. Thank you.

I was not told that you could bring your own bottles of alcohols with a £5 fee for each bottle to the venue. This meant I paid double to host drinks for my party guests from their Maine menu!!😥 There were no free complimentary bread...More

We had a family party here for 12 people and everything was perfect. Service was fantastic, food was delicious and great value... I'll be coming back from work as it's so close to the city.

We had our Christmas work dinner here last week and it met all my expectations. Relaxed accommodating with great service and attention to the group. Food was fantastic and it really set us up for a great night in neighbouring Shoreditch. Such a great find.

legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a

A cosy hideaway in Shoreditch, fusing eclectic flavours from across the Middle East with unique dishes brought to you from our Arabian kitchen. What better way to continue your journey with us but by enjoying shisha in our outside heated area and indoor E-shisha basement.
