Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Price Point: Mains from £10-£20

The brainchild of friends Andre Avedian, Dan Levine, and Stuart Swycher, Sarona Eatery is part of a new wave of cool, contemporary middle eastern restaurants which is sweeping through London right now.

Located in the heart of Clerkenwell, London’s design capital, the restaurant’s interior oozes style thanks to geometric tiles, moody lighting from bare bulbs dangling off exposed pipes and rustic wooden floorboards, making it as inviting for brunch as it is for a celebratory dinner.

The menu reflects the heritage of all three founders, although it draws much of its inspiration from Tel Aviv. Start with a glass of Tishbi Israeli wine and a selection of mezze to share. Crispy cauliflower with tahini sauce, fluffy pita bread flavoured with za'atar and spicy lamb kofta are all excellent orders here.

Mains or ‘big plates’ are well priced and delicious. The all-day shakshuka is a rich, velvety combination of hawayej lamb slow-cooked for 14 hours and runny free-range eggs, a comforting, wholesome dish that will have you scraping the plate clean.

Having just returned from a holiday in Israel, I've been waiting to go to a good Middle Eastern restaurant for a while that can live up to the standard of food I had whilst there! Between the 3 of us, we tried a range of smaller and larger dishes, including the green shakshuka, deep-fried whitebait, hummus and baba ganoush, and none of them disappointed. There was a good selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, although I often associate Middle Eastern food with fish as well, so the menu could have benefited from a wider fish selection. The prices were fair for the small-medium-sized dishes, and even without the First Table offer, it would have been very reasonably priced. The restaurant is very modern and service was great, and it was a shame it was not busier on the night to provide more atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this to another looking for slightly alternative food.

Has some lovely food at Sarona! The service was really friendly and helpful (in regards to how many plates to order and what certain things were that we'd never heard of). Lovely evening, although was very quiet on a week night, we still had a lovely time and I would recommend for the food and great service. Thanks!

We had a nice time at Sarona, The greeting was nice and service was very good throughout the meal. The First table process was handled very efficiently by the staff. The restuarant looks great and had a nice vibe. Having been to Sarona market in Tel Aviv and had some great food there,The food wasnt quite for us here as it wasnt punchy enough with spices and flavours.

We really enjoyed the food and the service of the waitresses. Lentils stew was rich and tasty, so the seabags and the aubergine.
Prawns kebab was okay, but the dessert was really outstanding. I never had such a delicious panna cotta, covered with pistachios and date's syrup.

Sarona offers a culinary trip to the Middle East without leaving Central London. All dishes were creamy, aromatic, and delicious but definitely the brownie with halva ice cream was the star of the evening. Staff was friendly and helpful making sure everything is to your liking. A huge plus for having Blue Moon on tap!
To sum up, if you want to spoil yourself with an exquisite meal in a lovely atmosphere Sarona is a place to go.

Lovely place behind Farringdon station. Really nice decor with friendly staff and nice middle eastern dishes. The hummus was super fresh tasting served with wonderfully warm pita. The mains - chicken schnitzel & lamb where really nice but both slightly lacking in salt. The sweet potato dish was great but the cauliflower didn't quite have the right combination of flavours for us. The winning dish of the night was the amazing apple & plum strudel served with pecan caramel ice cream, which hit all the right spots!
