Nice food, good service & reasonable price as large portions.
Had a fantastic meal at this restaurant. Food tasted fresh and cooked perfectly, and nicely marinated. Both me and my wife where very happy. The male waiter who served us was friendly and very professional.
I asked to be seated in the much cosier downstairs, and wish was granted. Super helpful and friendly host and super delicious food. Would come back again!
Really enjoyed our evening in Zengi. The food was lovely and with the taste card great value for money. Looking forward to coming here again.
I went with a family of 5, It was fabulous experience from start to finish, service was excellent and the food was delicious. The restaurant is very relaxing and good value for money. I will recommend the platter and falafels, it was yummy. I will definetly go again and will be one of my regular. Thank you very much for a lovely evening zengi.
Homely Middle Eastern decor and fabulous food. We tried the Turkish wine and found it just what it said on the tin: nice and blackcurranty. The only qualm I have is the slower service time downstairs. There was a ten minute gap between asking for and receiving our bill. When it arrived, the waiter was apologetic. This is something that staff should work on. The food, however, needs no changes!
Restaurant wasn’t very busy so service was good. No draft beer which was disappointing. Menu ok but maybe expected a few more middle eastern dishes. They offer vap shisha and normal shisha if you sit outside. I wouldn’t waste your money on vap shisha just doesn’t work ;) Also having the normal shisha topped up with coals you expect but we had to ask. Overall I score Zengi a 4
The restaurant is nicely furbished, food is ok. Nothing close to middle eastern cuisine but certainly a good quality for London and especially for the price. They also serve wine, and it's not too bad wine. The service is a bit mmhh. Extremely pushy when it came to order and to pay. They nicely arranged a baklava with a candle for a birthday, but otherwise not particularly friendly.
A very welcoming and attractive corner restaurant with interesting views over the life in Commercial street . Good choice of vegetarian courses and excellent mixed grill. Houmos as a starter is a good introduction to a reasonably priced meal. The Lebanese wines are worth trying.
We really enjoyed our meal at Zengi, the food was incredible and service great. Lovely atmosphere - recommend the Zengi platter! We went as a large group and they coped well and service was not compromised!
