Venue says: "One of the best Middle Eastern kitchens in Dalston Square. Fabulous seasonal modern cooking. Two course lunch £7.90. Live music Fri and Sat."

The good-looking contemporary aesthetic of this Dalston restaurant, bar and lounge is in contrast to the kind of food it's serving up - while the decor is modern, the food takes inspiration from centuries-old Anatolian and Mesopotamian cooking. Expect, then, a mix of Turkish, Middle Eastern and Baltic food.

That means plenty of kebabs, cooked on a charcoal grill alongside king prawns with dried tomatoes and balsamic syrup, or octopus with olive oil and lemon. Dishes also include borek, falafel, kleftiko, moussaka and spicy sucuk - a traditional Turkish barbecued sausage. A wood-fired oven knocks out Italian-style pizzas and various pide - the Turkish take on them. 

A short cocktail list includes well-known mixes such as long island ice teas, bloody marys and mojitos. Beers include Corona, Efes, Peroni and Budvar by the bottle, and Efes and Becks on draught. A decent selection of raki is available, too.

Where taste meets its climax.

At Le Ziz, through our careful method of preparation, cooking and presentation, we aim for all of our guests to taste truly delicious food at its climax. Being the sophisticated product of centuries of experience, the Anatolian and Mezopotamian cuisine has a very wholesome quality. The variety and simplicity of the recipes and the quality of the ingredients are guarantees of delicious meals. Anatolian cuisine is amongst the three richest and oldest cooking traditions together with French and Chinese cooking, but where did it come from?

Blended in the Ottoman era, the cuisine is combined from Central Asia, the Middle East, and the Balkans, which combined together is the modern day Anatolian cuisine. Turkey is renowned for being a key geographical location where East meets West, where a melting pot of different civilisations and cuisines have fused together over the centuries to create a unique and captivating history of authentic culture, and a cuisine that has been refined by centuries of experience.

At Le Ziz we have captured this essence within our exceptional seasonal menus featuring delicious specialities. We use the freshest and finest ingredients here, enhanced with traditional cooking methods to reach an optimum taste fulfilling both the eye and the appetite.

i was lucky enough to go there on a saturday night. Live music was peaceful and belly dancer show was on the top. The dishes were mainly Turkish; but variety was unbelievable from Fresh Lobster, Stuffed Steak Roll, Beyti Sarma, Home-made burger and lots more. Will definitely be back to try the other dishes that grabbed my appetite.
