We have eaten at Damascu bite many times over the years and it rarely ever lets us down. I prefer to eat in. Went yesterday lunch time and had a wonderful meal- kids always accommodated with their fussy eating! Too many places in east London...now over promise and under deliver at inflated prices but Damascu Bite always serves fresh, tasty food which is always value for money. Staff are great 👍 and take care of customers. Ok it’s not fine dining but it doesn’t pretend to be- it’s authentic Middle Eastern food and as a family it’s keeps everyone happy. If you are in brick lane this is a great option and long may it last !More

I picked this spot for lunch, somewhat at random. There are a few tables for eating in, and I was alone and didn't need any fancy service. The host/waiter was friendly and accommodating. I had a wrap that was freshly made, different that I've seen...elsewhere (in the US, anyway), and tasty. Chips were average. Nothing gourmet, but a nice mid-east ethnic menu with many things to select from. Not sure that this would be my first choice on another visit, but it served the purpose today. Another table with a bunch of kids was well-treated, so this might be a cheap option for a family.More

Enjoyable halt on a crowded day in Brick lane. Simple joint but really good and tasty food. Gentleman attending very nice, got a few extras for free. Hungry kids delighted.

This place has such a tasty and diverse Middle East menu that we choose it over and over again as our monthly hang out/ catch up place. We just love to gorge with their food and deserts...it helps that the prices are very reasonable.😁 It's...really difficult to find such price/ quality ratio in London... Owners are very nice and restaurant is clean. While I'm writing this, I'm drooling at the thought of a big lamb shawarma followed by some baklava...yummm!😋More

I come from Palestine, tried the restaurant four times so far and I can say that this place serves the most authentic Levantine food in London.

We were 8 with 3 kids. We all had something different and everything was appreciated. There are option for vegetarian as well as lamb and chicken. All dishes were well done and the portions more than satisfying. we just had to wait a little, but...the tables were mostly taken and we were a big group. Suggested for 2/4 people. Perfect with kids.More

At the heart of East London and historic Brick Lane, lies this Syrian/ Lebanese cuisine with a Moroccan architecture reminiscent of Andalusia and the ancient arabesque. Chef’s plates are chef-d’œuvre brining you the authentic infusions of the Mediterranean succulent plates to central London. Moutabal for...example, is grilled aubergine that has been smashed into a paste with tahini, olive oil and pomegranate. Muhammara is a mixture paste of different delicious, fresh peppers in addition to Falafel, or as my friends call them ‘Little Balls of Heaven. Once the chick peas have been ground with parsley and fried, no man on Earth can overcome their seductive smells ushering the start of a superb evening. I could probably write prose of their mixed grills and tender meat cubes that smoothly melt when you place them on the tip of your tongue with the outstanding taste of Tabouleh Salad. Their generous portions, unparalleled customer service, authentic home-made varieties and fair prices have made me a true addict to this restaurant. Damascus Bite in short is the Mediterranean Jewel of East London. Check my photos :)More
