Nice low key restaurant and the food was good. My lamb was cooked to perfection. If you want to drink alcohol (it's byob) then plan ahead as grocer shop along the road has v. poor selection. New Street Wine Shop towards liv st station is a good bet.more

Loved every bit of it. They have Lebanese, Turkish and a mix. I had lentil soup and chicken kebab and I forget other stuff. Some tea also. You don't get Turkish tea here. That was the only disappointment. But everything else was great. During lunch time there is only one waiter and he is very efficient. He managed to serve the entire restaurant during that afternoon. There were about 8 tables...more

Popped into Adiva late one Sunday night, after the Jack the Ripper tour which ends near Spitalfields. So the first thing in their favor is that they are open late. They offer a wide range of middle eastern dishes, and my food was alright. Nothing super great, but still enjoyable.

I am really surprised at the other reviews! We have ordered from Adiva on just-eat and have been absolutely delighted each and every time.

The shish taouk (chicken kabob) is the best I have ever had. I don't know what kind of magic voodoo they do, but the chicken breast chunks are so, so juicy and tender! The hummus is delicious and garlicky. The rice is fluffy and flavorful.

The delivery...more

This place is pretty decent without being exceptional - I had the mezzo platter so I could try a little of everything - the only real disapointment was the fallafel - it was dry and tastless - everything else was fine.

It's bring your own booze which is good but there were two large tables of guys all drinking a LOT of cans of lager and being pretty loud so dont expect a quiet romantic night...more
