Description: A cosy hideaway in Shoreditch, fusing eclectic flavours from across the Middle East with unique dishes brought to you from our Arabian kitchen. What better way to continue your journey with us but by enjoying shisha in our outside heated area and indoor E-shisha basement.

Great atmosphere as soon as we arrived. All the food was amazing that the 5 of us tried and well priced too!

This is quite a small restaurant. It;s not very big upstairs, not quite sure what is downstairs. The food is very good. I had the chicken shish with rice and it was beautifully presented and a decent size portion. It was just me and friend in the restaurent. Will return soon.

I am way overdue to review this lovely place. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food is really great, fresh and fulfilling. The best priced shisha all around with free tea. For a relaxed evening with yummy food definitely go there. Great value too.

I found this place whilst researching cheap eats in the Aldgate area. This restaurant is 3 minutes walk from Aldgate East station. Ask to be seated downstairs where there are private alcove dining spaces. Middle eastern lamps and candles add to the ambience.

We shared a small mixed meeze to start. Delicious Boreg - cheese and parsley rolled in a filo pastry cigar. Kashk-e-Bademjan which is smoked aubergine blended with onion yoghurt and garlic, some houmous and a delicious blended dish of fava beans, tahini and garlic called Ful Mudammas. Also with more familiar dishes Tabbouleh salad and Dolma. This came with some freshly baked flat bread. We also enjoyed a bottle of crisp Lebanese white wine.

For our main course we shared a succulent chicken shish with fragrant rice and salad. Washed down with a second bottle of the wine! We finished our meal with a piece of devilishly sweet baklava.

An absolutely delicious meal which came to £70 for the two of us which is brilliant value for three courses and a second bottle of wine. I thoroughly recommend Zengi's and will be back very soon.
