About Strut & Cluck

In 2016, Husband and wife team Amir and Limor opened Strut & Cluck on Commercial Street in Spitalfields following a residency at Shoreditch House. Initially showcasing Limor’s free-range turkey and vegetarian dishes, this Mediterranean gem has very quickly risen through the crowded ranks of London restaurants worth talking about. The food is simply sensational, and super healthy, and Strut & Cluck’s venue and location (towards Spitalfields Market from Shoreditch High Street) are ideal. No two London restaurants are alike, but this one feels especially special, so don’t dilly dally – book a table and try Strut & Cluck for yourself!

Further Information

Inspired by the healthy, hearty Eastern Mediterranean heritage of this Spitalfields star’s owners, the menu at London’s Strut & Cluck down Commercial Street is replete with gorgeous seasonal vegetable dishes, most often grilled, roasted, and full of goodness, or adorned with carefully selected artisan ingredients, as well as plenty of other gourmet protein options.

The options and flavour combinations seem endless, but you cannot miss no matter what you choose here – really.

This popular Spitalfields restaurant offers unbeatable home-style Mediterranean cooking, right on Commercial Street (Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch High Street and Liverpool Street station are a stone’s throw away), with a delicious weekend brunch menu and impressive range of wines, beers and cocktails to boot!

Needless to say, the word on Strut & Cluck is out around London, and bookings are strongly advised at all times.

Great brunch. Came here for the second time as I have previously had a work dinner at this place and absolutely loved the food. We ordered Shakshuka and Pita Paradise this time and it was fantastic. The service was great, we will definitely be back!

Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Something a little different from the usual menus available in the area. Wheat free chocolate cake was great as was the turkey.

Nice ambiance to the restaurant although a bit cramped. We struggled with both seating space and table space Menu had a good amount of variety particularly for the vegetarian member of our party which was one of our reasons for booking. All dishes were very tasty with the roasted peppers starter being particularly delicious albeit a bit smaller than expected for the cost. This was the general case for most dishes we ordered (slow cook lamb and the roasted cauliflower being two others worth trying): good food but could have done with a bit more in quantity. Turkey wings again were good but could do with deep frying at the end/roasting in high heat to get nice crispy skin rather than the gelatinous finish they currently have. Wine list is ample and the cab/carmenere and Rioja crianza (the latter perhaps over priced at £35) were nice enough. The espresso martinis that two of our table had were very good. All in all a nice experience but I'd recommend trying not to get the high tables with stools (especially the one by the alarm box in the corner) as it's very cramped, particularly for 4

Excellent Experience all round. Friendly greeting on arrival and service was friendly and attentive at all times without being intrusive. Menu is perfectly sized with a good selection of Starters and Mains without swamping you with too much choice. Servers happy to make knowledgeable recommendations if required. Can happily suggest you try the charred cauliflower as a starter as it is hugely better than it sounds. Highlights for the Mains was the Baby Squid and the Ox Cheek. Small but well chosen Wine selection and similar for beers/cider. Best of all is the price. Cannot believe you get all that you get for such a reasonable price point. Please go. You will not regret your decision.

I'm a big fan of Strut & Cluck. You can actually taste the heart and soul of the business in every dish - the people who work there really care. The food is tremendous and the menu selections leave you wanting to eat more than you should.

I loved the whole experience at Strut & Cluck. The venue is cozy without being crammed and the hanging plants made it feel relaxing and modern. The food was great - taste, plating, appearance all were on point. Definitely will go back again!

Excellent table service. Waiters have been careful and professional on food allergies, have given thorough info regarding the menu, and served courses at right intervals. Who smiling, who serious, everybody has been very kind and accurate. 6 stars for them. Food was delicious, some products more some less fresh, but still in London's good bistrot standards. To get satisfied with portions you'll need to order a little bit more. Courses are a bit over priced: I had sea bass, which is always a farmed species, at quite expensive price. You'll be anyway happy cause food is appetizing. Hygiene was the usual you find in London: dishes ok-clean on the surface, a bit less on the back. Finally, I do recommend this place.

American in London in need of a turkey-centred meal to celebrate Thanksgiving and wax nostalgic for home. The service was impeccable and friendly, but the food was the real star- the fall-off-the-bone tender turkey thighs- with roasted veg in a riot of spices and textures. The place is small, charming, sometimes loud, but energised with sounds of happy customers and divine smells. this is a place I will make a point to come back to anytime I'm in London. Highly recommended.

Walking distance from Liverpool Street Station. Able to book online for a table for two within the hour. Very attentive service. Menu explained and recommendations made. Baby Squid as a shared starter (£8) tasty but a little too much batter? Shared mains of Hand pulled turkey Sharwarma (£10.50), Lamb Koftas (£10.50) and 1/4 Charred cauliflower (£5.50) all nice and yummy. A little low on carbs but that is fine for me. I am sure we could have had more pitta bread if we asked. House red a little pricy at £19.50 but this is Spitalfields. £60.75 in total (without tip). Will go again.

I took a couple of friends along having read good things about the place and wasn't disappointed. Lovely, welcoming staff. Delicious food - nice to try something a little bit different. Great atmosphere. It was a warm day outside and the restaurant was bit on the hot side, but that wasn't enough to spoil our evening.

We absolutely love this place. The food is so unusual and so delicious We had Escalope of turkey, a fish stew and lamb kofta after an array of wonderful starters. The staff are so busy but so lovely and attentive. Can't recommend this place highly enough Can't wait to go back and try something new

First class modern, innovative, super healthy cuisine, fabulous cocktails and friendly staff make this one of my favourite places to eat in London currently. And they didn't mind when I asked to take our leavings away in a doggy bag. The char grilled cauliflower went down a treat with the next day's beef.

Yummy food and great service. The waitress recommended us wine which was really good. The only reason for 5 instead of 6 in my score is that the lamb shawarma was slightly dry and could have done with something like a dip. The dessert was amazing, do try the Kadayif nest of vanilla cheescake cream, very fresh and perfect ending to the meal.

I've had some wonderful meals here and recommended the restaurant to friends many times. But this visit was a disappointment. The menu has changed significantly. It's now much more meat based. No problem with that as I'm a carnivore but it does seem to have lost a little of its identity. The dishes we chose were okay but nothing special. Several options had run out (and no olives!) which was odd as we dined early evening. Also had to ask several times for empty glasses to be cleared from out table. All in all a bit meh. Maybe it was a Saturday night thing.

We went in Dec '16 for dinner and really enjoyed it. The service was excellent and the food was great. I would have given it the full 6 marks but I found the escalope main to be a bit too sour for my liking. On the whole, I really liked the idea behind the restaurant and I will definitely visit again.

Starters were delicious (cauliflower and the aubergine/tahini with pitta) but one of them was forgotten about and we'd asked for them to come separately rather than at same time as mains. Not a big deal though a they were great. Turkey bun was good but felt like ratio of turkey to bun could have been higher. Rosemary potatoes were almost overseasoned, they were the dish I wouldn't have again. Good wine. Nice people. Pretty restaurant.

It's an amazing restaurant. Really friendly staff, it looks cosy and most important: the food is amazing. And the cocktails are also next level good. One little disappointment: we had a reservation for 20.00, but we had to wait 25 minutes before our table was ready unfortunately.

Delisious food. We shared 4 dishes between 2 which was perfect, all of them were great. Will def be back. Have some high chair seating at one end of the resurarant which wasnt very comfortable but we got a low table on request which was much better.

I found that whilst the dishes were certainly different, it did not quite hit the spot. The cauliflower had too much sweetness on it which meant you lost the taste of the beautifully roasted cauliflower. The shredded turkey was dry and the bread had too much tahini, again taking away from the beautiful subtle flavours that had been used in the spices. The turkey thigh however was cooked extremely well, and luckily no strong flavours were used to take away from the succulent cooking. Quite an expensive meal for what it is.

It is a relaxed environment where you feel like you walked into your own Mediterranean dining room. The food was well presented, fresh and tasty! Those pita bread slices were amazing. The waiter was attentive and helpful, knowledgeable of the food and drinks menu. Perfect for friends, families, couples or even for a treat solo.

Always a great time here . But first time having dinner ,I felt that the food had been waiting a long time . Still enjoyed our evening,but also my favourite waitress ,Francesca had left ,and the woman working there was a poor substitute ,trying to be helping and friendly but not coming across as authentic.

Very nice ambiance and great service. We had a bottle of white and a bottle of red and both were good and reasonably priced. Food was mostly good although main sizes a bit small. We ordered the signature dish of cauliflower and all 4 of us hated it! But overall it was a good experience.

Food was fresh, tasty and a bit unusual, we loved it. We shared lots of smaller veggie dishes and with the squid and turkey shawarma mains between 4 - all delicious. Lovely atmosphere and great service, we were just sad to leave as our table was needed for the next booking. Definitely going back!

Outstanding food and service. We arrived at 7 and left at 10pm after two courses, so it's safe to say that the food could definitely have come out faster, but it was well worth the wait and I will be returning for another meal.

Great food - the cauliflower was excellent. Worse flourless choc cake ever though! The waiter was a bit odd when we asked for the lamb dish "oh it's made with beef" - mass confusion on the table. As it turned out they ran out of lamb and replaced with beef. Overall I would def go back - especially to try the lamb made with lamb!

Love this place! Food tastes delicious! Service can be slow, but I believe it has to do with the food being complex and freshly made- so I can't complain! I love the cauliflower dish and recommend you try it!

Excellent food. Really nice ambiance, with pretty furniture and lots of daylight. Good wifi. I would have liked greater food portions for the money. Ordering more would have turned it into a more expensive lunch than I expected.
