Your street food comes with a side of fun at this night market for those who like to eat on their feet

Street Feast returns to Dalston Yard for a summer-long stretch of night markets for those who like to be seen eating. New for 2016 are some modern classics of the food stall scene; Hawaiian-inspired sushi bowls from Poke, fiery chicken from White Men Can't Jerk and juicy hunks of beef from Stakehaus. All-time favourites making a return appearance include Kimchinary, Bleecker St and Smokestak. Eating on your feet is likely unless you've managed to snaffle a corner of one of the tables, lots of which are covered so that you don't have to cancel in case of rain. Pop to the Kamm Shed for a refreshing aperitif and the Tequila Treehouse for a post-food shot. This is a food market that knows how to party.

Street food is available in every corner of London. Every culture and country is represented. We’ve never been luckier to experience such great cuisine. So why is Street Feast any better than strolling out for lunch during you lunch break and happening upon a street food market? Well, they make an evening of it all set within a crumbling warehouse space in East London. The choice of food on offer is a bit predictable with a sprinkling of more interesting options – think Korean burritos and Hawaiian sashimi breaking away from the standard, but am sure delicious, burgers and ribs. There are different seating areas and bars, serving all sorts of canned craft beers, ales and cocktails. Get there earlier enough and you’ll be able to nab a great space and bed in for evening. They even have oil drum fires for the chillier evenings. The £3 entrance fee post 7pm seems a bit toppy but worth it if this is your evening destination.

The Dalston Yard Street Festival has finally returned for another summer of fun, food and drinks. Featuring sliders / mini bites from many world cuisines, there is something for everyone in this wonderful outdoor market.


The friendly staff throughout the venue ensured everyone was warm enough by lighting log fires in old barrels and also kept the areas very clean. A further member of staff was on hand with paper towels in the toilet areas so you could dry your hands after washing. The bar and food stall staff were welcoming and made it feel like you were the well known regular at the local pub.


Unexpectedly, the prices were very reasonable, with pints of Kozel being cheaper than in the pubs local to my office in Farringdon and the Bleecker Street Burger stall charging lower prices than their Southbank van.


We can certainly recommend the Rola Wala stall, featuring mini naan bread sliders, and the rum shack, featuring a variety of cocktails which are very freely poured.


We will certainly be visiting numerous times over the summer in order to try out all the food options on offer.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!


Street Feast at Dalston Yard is back and has all the culinary delights as before. Viewed as the mothership of the street food collective set ups and after the last few Summers it's still clear why. Good vibes, amazing food, delicious cocktails and an overall party atmosphere as these Summer weekends creep in.


The burgers from Bleecker St are hard to beat, home of the voted best burger in the world, the Black Bleecker! But to be honest anything you get from these friendly food vendors is not going to disappoint.


Conveniently located right beside Dalston Junction I would go to Street Feast every weekend if my jeans would allow it.

A Fantastic night out for food, drinks and atmosphere. We tried amazing Indian street food at Rola Wala, top notch Bao buns at Yum Bun, freshly made summer rolls and amazing Arepas at Petare. Cant wait to go again.

Only complaint was the temperature, on a cold night its pretty breezy.

remember pogz, and beyblades and, yeah, top trumps. they were all cool - to the point where if you showed up two days running with the same pack of the latter you were totally just a nobody.

so these trends they come and go, and then they come back for a bit, then they definitely go, but then someone opens up a bar themed like one of them and then they're back. (bar beyblade is my idea and no-one can have it, I will sue!)

anyway, my point is maybe the more cynical, and largest, part of me thought the same about eating outside in the elements or in a refurbished warehouse - but I'm happy to say Street Feast @Dalston Yard has proven me, most unequivocally wrong.

people love being cold, sipping craft beer and chowing down on delicious food. and people will always love it, with a capital L; maybe even with a couple more Os ... you know, like Loooove it!

I got in the day before it opened, on my larrot due to a late drop out but I couldn't care less - talking would've just taken up too much time that I could've been stuffing myself with delicious food and glugging down beers, and that is exactly what I did.

I had no time for mingling as my face was stuffed with delicious sliders from Slider Bar, my mind was not bothered with thoughts of being alone as it was too busy reminding me of how much I love me some Beavertown!

there was so much deliciousness on offer I could still be there now, but alas my jacket my thin and my journey home the wrong side of half an hour so I departed; full of small burgers and a smugness that descends upon you when you do something trendy - one time I brewed my own beer and wore a shirt 3 sizes to big. I've yet to de-smug!!!

so Street Feast, what's there left to say: it's great, it's fun, and there's no reason you're not booking the morning off work to be going the night before (I'm mean other than the fact it's only open Fridays and Saturdays).

I'll be going back ... so see you there, I'll be the guy slowly slipping in to horrendous debt because of my slider addiction.

Dalston Yard Street Feast is slightly more exposed to the elements than it's Shoreditch Dinerama cousin but has a similar sort of vibe and decor. This includes painted shipping containers under a tin roof, long cafeteria style tables and chairs, and stands that remind me somewhat of the London version of Singaporean or Malaysian hawker stalls. The eateries available are eclectic and delicious from Kimchinary Korean fusion burritos to Venezuelan street food. Nothing beats Smokestak's sumptuous beef ribs cooked under a genuine smoker. Yum Bun does a pleasing pork belly bun although it doesn't quite match up to Bao's in Soho. Frontier Bar serves an array of crafted beers and there were even a couple of wine stands that didn't seem to attract a huge amount of visitors. Craft beer just goes with this kind of food. Apart from the Brownie stand there weren't really too many dessert stalls so could have done with a couple more options. Overall, really enjoyed Street Feast.

Buzzing atmosphere and delicious food. A great place if you are with a big group of people and everyone likes different cuisine.

I can't believe it took me so long to get myself to this place. I had visited various similar pop ups in the past, such as Feast and Dinerama, but this one blew all the others out of the water. So many different food and drink stalls, with some of the best food I've tasted. Ever. We started with a lobster roll from Bob's Lobster. To die for. At £10 a pop, I would be happy if I ate one of these every day for the rest of my life. We then had a selection of 3 tacos from Breddos. Not bad. Next we had a burrito from Kimchinary. Delicious. Followed by chilli chicken wings with blue cheese sauce - just spicy enough to make my eyes water but keep me coming back for more. The highlight of the night was the Bleecker Black burger from Bleecker Street. Two meat patties with black pudding in the middle. Holy Jesus. This takes the title of my #1 burger ever without debate!! We managed to wash the food down with several gin cocktails from the gin bar, beer from Meantime, and some red wine from the "Old World" wine stand. In summary: I freaking love this place!!! Countdown to next summer when it opens again!

Great place but £3 entry after 19.00, is not justifiable. Excellent street food with different stalls to choose from but a bit expensive. Try smoke stak for excellent pork burgers. Nice place also for drinks & cocktails.

Big fan of Street Feast. When we went most recently we struck gold finding a bench in the secret garden. Okay there was a fire right nearby that was spitting at us, but what's a few embers when you've found a SEAT at Streat Feast. B.O.B's lobtser had run out of lobster (come on now B.O.B this dish is your namesake) so I went for the three slider deal at the Slider Bar, along with some sweet potato fries from Bleecker St. Burger. It's safe to say I needed to be rolled outta the place, but trust me your tastebuds will appreciate it. Only criticism is that my veggie friend had a complete mare finding food, but I guess that's her choice for taking sides with the animals.

This year was my first experience of street feast and it will not be my last. Our game plan was to arrive early to find somewhere to sit then spend the evening working our way round every single stall. We quickly realised this was a tad too ambitious. It took me 2 days to recover from my street feast food coma. Breddos tacos three ways was the winner for me, the slider bar was an absolute treat and rola wala tantalised my taste buds. I will say it got a little pricey with drinks but it was well worth it. Don't forget to check out the secret garden before you leave too. I was a little disappointed there was no music to add to the atmosphere but that was the only down side for me. I can't wait to go back.

This evening 01/08/2015 I was at The New World Wine Garden with friends,
I went downstairs to get some food for me and my friends and went I returned  the security guard refused to let me back in, saying I have not been before.

The guys saw me with the food in my hands I told to the guy that my friends and my jacket were upstairs and he told me that he didn't care and he didn't have to  let me in.

The guy grabbed  my writs and I told him  " don't touch me"  and the guy grabbed me  more tightly and he said he doesn't care.

He told me to calm down, I was very angry for having effectively been called a liar, he said I had not been upstairs, that he id not have to check with the bar staff, and that I had to leave.  I swore, and he called additional security, who had me removed.

Probably I should not have sworn, but I was angry at being disbelieved and treated abruptly and rudely, I had also spent money on bottles of wine and food which was waiting for me upstairs.

The security policy is excessive, unjust and inappropriate.  Their behaviour and treatment of paying customers is indiscriminate and poorly managed.  I will not be returning, and I would like to make a formal complaint about my treatment.



The Security Company should be sure it staff are clean and sober before and during their work shift

Here you can see the faces of the abusive security guard guys.

Can't get enough of Street Feast. Every year I'm keen to get along in the first week. The winter seems slow and sad without this space and I love passing a warm summer evening stuffing my face. Always good to be strategical and go with a big group early (and before 7pm to get in for free), grab a table and then you can graze all night. I usually start with tacos from Breddos or something from Yum Bun. Then I go in for a little snack (!) from BOB's Lobster and finish with my fave London burger from Bleecker St. Sometimes there's room for wings from MotherClucker too. Where else can you do all of that in one sitting?!

Great to see Street Feast back at Dalston Yard which is my favourite venue. Go for the atmosphere and a tasting menu of what is reliably the best selection of street food in London. If you're starving and skint it might be wise to preload on a cheese sandwich. But anyone who loves to eat should come here at least once.

I like the idea. The food and drinks are awesome. But it's really overpriced and it lacks places to sit/green areas with tables and grass. Portions are really small, more like £5 tasters.

Marianna P

Positives: Excellent quality food, nice relaxing atmosphere!

Negatives: Although the food was delicious, the portions were very tiny and overpriced in my opinion. There could be some more music as well.  Good experience overall

Went for the TimeOut opening and it was great! Good atmosphere, excellent selection of food and drink (the Smoke Stak ribs are awesome!). Wouldn't think its that good for vegetarians though- meat meat meat!

Street Feast was great last time and amazing this time, once again unless you really hate food you probably should go..all time time, all summer. This year features Tequila Slushies, Duck Yum Buns with champagne slaw, The best fried chicken from mutha clucker you have ever eaten ever um, yes I said it - Get there early for the Lobster Mac and Cheese which sells out every time. And if you have space (make space) then. DONUTS.
