Where to Eat Kosher Food in London

Picture of Christina Dean
Updated: 30 October 2017
From deli staples like salt beef and chicken soup to Middle Eastern shawarma and Chinese, you can find a good spread of kosher food in London, even though the number of kosher restaurants isn’t particularly high.

White Fish

Restaurant, Kosher, none
Save to wishlist

It’s not hard to work out what they specialise in at White Fish. From fish soup to fried fish to white fish curry to salmon teriyaki, this Hendon restaurant is the place to come for kosher fish. They also have an entire sushi menu that covers sashimi, nigiri, maki and futomaki rolls as well as some special and not-so-traditional creations – the New York roll has salmon, avocado and mango with a smoked salmon and cream cheese.

Kaifeng

Restaurant, Kosher, Chinese, none
Save to wishlist

Kaifeng is named after the city in China’s Hunan province where Jews had settled from the 10th century after journeying on the Silk Road. Bar pork and prawn dishes, the menu is full of Chinese classics like steamed dumplings, crispy aromatic duck, beef in yellow bean sauce and drunken fish. It’s pretty pricy for what is essentially a neighbourhood Chinese restaurant, though the food is good, so perhaps it’s one to save as a treat rather than as a regular occurrence.

Isola Bella

Save to wishlist

If you can’t decide between cuisines, Isola Bella is the restaurant for you; they serve Mediterranean salads, pizza and pasta, a range of Thai noodles and curries, and traditional Middle Eastern dishes like shakshuka.

Novellino

Restaurant, Pizzaria, Kosher, Italian, Asian, none
Save to wishlist

Novellino is another kosher restaurant that’s gone for the more is more option – the extensive menu encompasses breakfast and brunch plates as well as pizzas, pastas, risottos and fish. Though the food is largely Italian, a few Asian and Middle Eastern dishes like sushi and mezze platters have snuck onto the menu. Fish aside, there’s a lot for vegetarians to enjoy and one of their sweet ice blended drinks is the perfect way to end a meal here.

Reubens

Deli, Restaurant, Kosher, $$$
Save to wishlist

For authentic kosher deli food there’s only one place to go and that’s Reubens on Baker Street, which has been serving hungry Londoners since 1973. All the meat they use is glatt kosher and their renowned salt beef, steamed to a special recipe, is a big hit with diners as is their chicken soup with lockshen and kneidlach. Like any good deli, the portions are large, so pace yourself if you plan on making it to dessert – the lockshen pudding and apple strudel are worth it.

Sami's

Restaurant, Middle Eastern, Kosher, none
Save to wishlist

It can get a little chaotic at Sami’s, especially when a rush of takeaway orders come in, but it’s worth bearing with it for the shawarma, laffa and salads. There are lots of options when it comes to meat – lamb cutlets, steak, chicken shashlik and so on – as well as a few classics like chicken soup, salt beef and liver and onions for the times you crave home comforts.

Falafel Time!

Zest

Cafe, Restaurant, Kosher, Middle Eastern, none
Save to wishlist

As well as being the in-house café/restaurant at the JW3 Centre, Zest is also a social enterprise, using their profits to assist in the running and programming of the centre itself. Inspired by Tel Aviv, the menu is a mixture of a modern take on Middle Eastern staples – the mezze includes carrot hummus and marinated aubergines with feta – whilst the mains range from fish and chips to salmon with borsch. Drop by on Sundays for a bottomless brunch buffet where you can pile your plates with everything from shakshuka to kedgeree to pancakes with maple syrup.

Met Su Yan

Restaurant, Chinese, Asian, Thai, Sushi, none
Save to wishlist

Predominantly a Chinese restaurant, Met Su Yan also serves up some Malaysian, Thai and Japanese crowd-pleasers like beef red curry, pad thai, sushi and miso soup as well as Asian beer and hot sake in addition to kosher wine. The imperial hors d’oeuvres and the crispy shredded beef come recommended here as do the toffee bananas. It’s easy to overlook the desserts when you have such a large savoury menu before you but these don’t disappoint; if you opt for one of the value-for-money set menus, desserts come included.
