Quite a pleasant restaurant in a busy part if East London. Food was decent, I enjoyed a mixed mezze starter, the main lacked the fresh flavours I expect of a Mediterranean meal. Would probably come back.

Excellent food, the lamb chops were truly amazing! A really lovely atmosphere - very authentic with the alcoves & beautiful turkish lamps. The staff were very attentive. Would definitely go again.

Zengi is a small Turkish restaurant . I think there are some tables in the basement but at the floor level where I sat, the number of tables were limited and placed close to each other.. The food is excellent and service very good and quick. I would recommend the lamb chops which were succulent and moist. Served with rice... More

I had a great night out, the food was amazing, and the host was warm and attentive. Lots of atmosphere, warm and charming. They were superb at looking after our large group. I would go again, and thoroughly enjoyed the evening, I would recommend the restaurant and it also has a good location - 5 minute walk from the station.

Myself and my husband hosted our joint 30th birthday celebrations here and we couldn't have been more pleased at how well it went. The staff were absolutely incredible and couldn't do enough for ourselves or our guests. They let us have the whole downstairs area for our gathering which was decorated by family. I'm currently pregnant and the staff accommodated... More

This is the 2nd time we have dined here. Warm welcoming, good range of starters and main courses, including vegetarian dishes. Lamb and chicken beautifully cooked. Succulent and tasty. Friendly, relaxed and attentive service. Very reasonably priced too. And if you want to experience Sisha then try that here too.

Following our work party at Zengi last week I have nothing but praise for this fine eatery. I'm used to good Lebanese food but this was some of the best I have tasted in London. An amazing selection of starters was followed by some of the tastiest grilled meats I have had in a long time - the lamb chops... More

We had dinner here last week with a big group of friends and were impressed with the quality of the both the food and the hospitality. The food was fresh and delicious and the staff looked after our motley crew with great attention and the right spattering of humour. We would definitely come back again-with our young family as well... More

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.

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious 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 cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
