Just went there today with my partner. We ordered some Baba Ganoush, Falafel, Lamb main and a Halloumi wrap. All were really delicious and definitely the most tasty Middle Eastern wrap I have eaten in London. Being a foodie, I will definitely recommend this place.

I discovered Zengi about 6 weeks ago and since my first meal I have been hooked on the place. The restaurant is always spotless, the staff are friendly albeit a little standoff-ish and awkward at times but the mixed grill is the best Ihave ever tasted. It is simply devine mouth watering chicken pork and lamb and the rice is done to perfection everytime. I have eaten in Zengi about 3 times everyweek since I first discovered this place and it has never let me down once. Top marks guys


went to this corner restaurant last week with my group friends based on some good reviews we red on the net ,,, and it was good for it. the place is not the most sephesticated i have been , but it was friendly and they had a beautiful downstairs caves for groups which we had one of ,, and the food was good as well as the atmosphere ,,, not bad over all... would recommend it.


very good food ,, relaxed but friendly service and wew are going back again ,, loved it.


Sporadic service- plates not cleared- given 2 min warning that mains were coming. The waitress was unable to recommend anything... In hindsight perhaps that was a clue because the starters were mediocre and the chicken and lamb shish dry and tough. The salad had no dressing and Included a (big) pile of onion. Was embarrassed to have invited a friend there. Overpriced and over rated. Definitely will not be back.


The food is below average (in particular, the mains were pretty bad). The prices don't reflect the low quality food you are being served. Overall, the experience was very disappointing.

Great restaurant. Strated off havinf a falafel wrap: really nice: home made fresh, which is always good. Went one day in for a meal: friendly staff, menu nice: mixture of lebanses mezes and unique starters from middle east: i ate the zengi mix grill: amazing! flavour deep into the chicken which is hard to find and the lamb shish melts in your mouth. Lebanese wines to top it off. Have returned there again and the food still remains great.


good place with friendly service . I had lamb shish and lebanese beer wich both was fantastic the place itself not very busy but food is cooked right in front of you .. vey good overall.


Had an office Christmas do there last week. Was very impressed with the thoughtful decor and the waitress who was very patient and attentive. Food was delicious, and a bargain compared to what I've paid before on Edgware Road. Will go again with the girlfriend.


This place is below average and it is really overpriced. I had a mixed kebab (lamp, chicken, and adana) for the price of 12,50 which I find far too expensive. It was really mediocre. The Turkish restaurants in Dalston do far better ones for 3-4 pounds less. I tried an Iraqui starter which came with chilli sauce from a super market bottle - No way that was prepared in that place. I was shocked to pay 23,50 at the end. Service was slow by the way, a bit too laid back for my taste.
