North, south, east, west or right in the thick of it. No matter where your compass takes you in the UK’s capital, you’re going to run across London Middle Eastern restaurants. Two reasons. Primary is that the term Middle Easter cuisine is a grab-bag of a huge number of geographically-associated cuisines. Assyrian, Iraqi, Palestinian, Bahraini, Israeli, Qatari, Cypriot, Jordanian, Saudi Arabian, Egyptian, Kuwaiti, Syrian, Emirati, Lebanese, Turkish, Iranian, Omani, and Yemeni cuisines all count as Middle Eastern cuisine, and all can be found if you look through a comprehensive list of Middle Eastern restaurants in London. Second, in order to take a conservative measure of the scale of London’s Middle Eastern population, there are over 110,000 ‘Arabic’ people living in London alone.
Unsurprisingly, Arabic cuisine is prominent in Quandoo UK’s restaurant listings – if you head to Quandoo London and choose Arabic cuisine you’ll find many top Middle Eastern restaurants in London. Other cuisines to check out when searching for a Middle Eastern restaurant in London include Lebanese and Turkish (between west and east, Occident and Orient, and therefore Europe and the Middle East). Even Mediterranean restaurants may take their cues from a loosely defined notion of Middle Eastern cuisine. You could even classify the cuisine coming from Moroccan restaurants, for instance, as Middle Easter, in the sense that the culinary traditions are highly compatible. In any case, it’s easy to find Middle Eastern restaurants in London, and like shooting delicious grilled fish in barrel with Quandoo’s help.
