Dalston restaurants and cafÃ©s
Discover our recommendations for the best restaurants in Dalston
Dalston may have a reputation for amazing Turkish food (which places like
19 Numara Bos Cirrik I uphold), but there's actually a huge range of outstanding restaurants in the area now. Shanghai Dalston brings Shanghai's regional dishes to east London, whilst British food is provided by A Little of What You Fancy. And for simple, seasonal fare alongside Regent's Canal, you must go down to Towpath.
