I went with a group of girls for cocktails and birthday dinner - we had such a fun time, the service was outstanding and the food was delish! Great selection of unusual cocktails, and the scallops were melt-in-the-mouth. Would definitely go there again :)
Great food - always delicious and tasty with a relaxed atmosphere.
Fantastic value (particularly
Fantastic value (particularly the two course for £15 when we visited) and excellent food - using very fresh ingredients. Would recommend if you are looking for a good place to eat in and around Islington.
Friday night dinner
I went to Zilouf's on a Friday after work with a friend, we started with cocktails on 241 before moving into the restaurant for our dinner - both the drinks and the food were excellent but what made the evening really stand out was the service, there was table service for drinks in the bar and we were automatically given a side of lovely cucumber infused water we were moved directly from the bar to the restaurant for our food where the waiter was really helpful recommending wine and checking we were OK. When we left to go for a drink afterwards nothing seems good enough!
We dined on the TT offer two courses for £15 which was great value however the choice of dishes in the offer was very limited but I had the butternut & ginger soup and my sister had the chickpea fritters we both had the pork belly for our main. The food was tasty with fresh ingredients and the portion generous. We would have had a dessert which looked good if we weren’t so full. We would dine there again.
great food and service
had a great dinner with friends.. we were seated before our table was ready which wasnt a problem at all. attentive and smiley service, top rated! good food as usual. only down side was the noise.. it was difficult to hear one another since we were a group of 6 people, one of my friend is an acoustician and complained that the noise is really unusual for a restaurant of this nature, as in it is worse than other restaurants. shame but probably we should try at lunch one day and see if it is better.
Great service, food and atmosphere!
I took my girlfriend to Ziloufs for some dinner on a Saturday night and had a brilliant meal. The food was absolutely delicious, our waitresses were very attentive and the place had a real buzz to it.
Great place to eat out!
An all rounder
It really is. Cocktails were great. the food was amazing and service was just as good. Lovely small menus to choose from. The cocktails were great and made by very friendly bar staff without having to wait a century even though the bar was very busy. I would recommend it to anyone. I have already got a few friends to book a table there who I'm sure will be as pleased as I was.
Fantastic all round!
Everything was so much better than expected. Fantastic food, fresh and light.
Have already recommended to friends.
First time here on Monday evening and we will be visiting again! We were met by very friendly staff and sat where we wanted. The cocktails are AMAZING and the food even better! Try the scallops! WOW! After our meal we sat on the sofa and finished our bottle of wine. One of the best nights out I've had in ages and it was a quiet one!
A breath of fresh air on Upper St
Loved the unusual combinations of food at Ziloufs. Great for those who fancy something a little different. And the happy hr cocktails are great
Love this Place!
I came here for my 30th ( a few years ago now!) and loved it, ive been back a few times since and i still love it. The food is interesting and very very nice, as are the staff and the drinks... even without an offer i would dine here again and highly recommend!
The BEST Upper St has to offer!!!!
Dined on Friday night. Greeted at the door by friendly staff and taken through to the bar to have a cocktail before moved to our table. The cocktail (Godzilla Drift) was recommended by the staff and was refreshing and very tasty. The bar was very busy doing there 2 for 1 cocktails and we didn't have to wait long at all for our drinks. Eventually we where moved onto our table for dinner and where meet with more friendly staff members. Dinner was amazing. We had the Steak Tartar and Scallops for entree. Both where wonderful and pleasing on the taste buds and eye. We followed this up with the Pot Roasted Beef Short Rib -which was so succulent and delicious and the Pork Belly was outstanding. Hats off to the chef. Cannot wait until next time!
Was my third visit to Zilouf's in Angel and once again I was impressed with the food and the great service. My friend and I had the 2 courses for £15 and a few cocktails which were delicious. The staff were really attentive and helpful. I will be going back.
Always a winner
I took my mate who normally eats in michelin star restaurants and she LOVED it! Food beautifully presented, exciting menu and absolutely delicious! Highly recommend the scallops starter and the pork belly with crackling cooked to perfection! We stayed on for after dinner cocktails (lichee martini is a must!) and there was a great vibe and all in all a fantastic night out.
My husband and I had a lovely meal on a Friday night. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked and yummy combinations!
I was disappointed to find that there were restrictions on what we coudl order with the deal. I had booked the 2 courses for 15 pounds and I had seen no mention of being restricted to certain options on the menu. Apart from that, lovely evening.
Great Food and Cocktails
Been at Zilouf's various times, and they rarely disappoint. Great food and cocktails as well as a lively and warm atmosphere.
One of my favourites
Love this place. The only downside is having to walk up the hill to get to it - but it is well worth it!! Highly recommend this place.
As always, we had a lovely
As always, we had a lovely night at Ziloufs. Great cocktails, great food and very pleasant service
Excellent service and food
Excellent service and food not only presented beautifully but also delicious.
Well worth a visit
Attentive and friendly service - was not too busy when we went so waiters were available and really helpful. Food was imaginative (the dishes we had all had a thai fusion feel to them) and the 2 for 15 deal was really good value. The confit duck in penang sauce was really tasty as was the thai beef salad starter. The chickpea fritters were a bit bland and the cod dish had a bit too much fish sauce that drowned out other flavours. Chunky chips were good but not as crispy as I was expecting, more like wedges. Puddings were excellent and big portions too. Really enjoyed the experience overall and will return. Definitely worth a visit, but pick the right time as service may get stretched at busy times, as other comments seem to suggest. B+
Great food, great atmosphere
Substantial portions but the food was very tasty. Lovely open space and kitsch decor made for a very pleasant atmosphere. Have already recommended the restaurant to my sister!
I was really surprised at
I was really surprised at the quality of food - not that I thought it was going to be bad, but it's rare you get food of that quality at that price. Really interesting mix of flavours and influences, and generous servings. Our water glasses were frequently replenished without us having to ask - big thumbs up! It was quite noisy as it was a Friday night and the post work cocktail crowd were in, but that's to be expected. Lovely place, looking forward to returning.
Food was excellent, service was excellent, a very good reasonably priced restaurant!
My second visit to Ziloufs,
My second visit to Ziloufs, which confirmed my view the first time: I like it. Again the delicious and spicy black bean fritters for starters and then a really nice seared tuna main, cooked just right. Washed down by the excellent house red wine. A destination on upper Upper Street.
Healthy tasty food
Thoroughly enjoyable evening, Great waiter, perfect cocktails and excellent food that was healthy, tasty and without lots of sauces.
favourite restaurant, go!
Our favourite place. Swanky, intimate, unbelievable food that's constantly changing, great cocktails and friendly staff. Don't you all start going there, you'll ruin it!
Great place to eat
I went to Ziloufs looking for something different and it did provide it indeed, the food was really nice with a little twist. The service was very attentive but relaxed at the same time. The waitress was really good and the little touch of filling our glass of water was nice as it is not a regular thing in restaurant of this standard. I will go again to Ziloufs without a doubt, cannnot wait.
Delicious east/west fusion
Delicious east/west fusion that really works, and utterly charming staff
Good Food, Poor Service
The food we excellent, salmon main was amongst the best I have ever tasted. It was a real shame that the waitress looked constantly angry, as if my very presence was ruining her day. With that one exception, it was overall very good.
Our meal at Ziloufs was a fantastic surprise. On arriving, we were really pleased to see that the decor and ambience looked well thought-out and relaxing. Our waiter had a great sense of humour and was really enthusiastic about the menu. We had booked the '2 courses for £15' deal through Toptable and weren't really anticipating anything special. The food was very beautifully presented, and each dish just had something different and more interesting than a regular Thai meal. It's a fantastic secret find and we'll definitely be going back.
Great for steak
Went to Zilouf's for Tuesday evening dinner with the 'Two steaks for £20' deal. Great value and really delicious steak - they're not afraid to serve them rare. The 2-for-1 cocktails before 7pm were also great.
I went to ziloufs a few weeks ago and loved it. Came back for more and was surprisingly surprised by the change not in de menu itself but more on the plate decoration....simply fabulous!
Excellent lamb Sunday roast
Excellent lamb Sunday roast and generous portion. V good value at £17.50 including a Bloody Mary.
Service was fast and friendly, food outstanding (and great choice) and for £15.00 for two courses a real bargain, too. Not to forget the 2 for 1 offer on cocktails! Had a really lovely dinner and will definitely be back!
Really enjoyed the evening
Really enjoyed the evening that the two of us had. It was quiet on a Tuesday but very friendly waiting staff, good cocktails and food. Recommend the dessert with the toasted banana bread and peanut butter ice cream.
A return visit and as always,
A return visit and as always, great atmosphere and food. Topped up by a happy hour cocktail in the bar beforehand
Wow, definitely going back!
The food is imaginative and well-executed, and VERY good value for money. The wine selection had some great choices, and the prices weren't marked up as much as usual. The service could be a tiny bit better, but overall the quality of the food at this price makes it a MUST go.
The best food in Islington?
I have only been to Ziloufs twice, but both meals have truly surpassed almost all the other restaurants I have tried in Islington, and there is a marvellous choice! The fish curry and the breast of duck were both incredible, so much so that my dining companion and I both argued over which one we had originally ordered, and shared them both. He declared that the scallops were the best he had ever tasted. Small note; make sure your dishes are on the toptable deal, we asked for the toptable menu, but apparently if they did not have small asterisks beside them they did not qualify. We didn't notice this and hence got rather confused when we received the bill. We'll know next time.
Enjoyed an excellent meal
Enjoyed an excellent meal at Ziloufs - two for one cocktails which were scrumptious followed by a very tasty and impressive two courses for £15. My friend also required gluten free and they were very attentive to her needs.
One of the best
Upper street is renowned for good quality cheap eats, but this is by far one of the best. Excellent portions, good ambience, and fantastic service. Try the pork belly or the duck!!
weds night cocktails and food
Ziloufs was really good. The service was brilliant- very attentive. Food was delicious and very good portions. Toptable deal made the evening a bargain for the quality we had. Definitely will come back!
Good food, hippy decor
Made it just in time for happy hour, not the best cocktails - had better from the main menu. Main dining seating isn't the most comfortable but the ambiance is great and the food delicious. Everything done with an eastern flavouring, miso features quite a lot but beautifully cooked meat, great chips and interesting starter combinations. Very friendly staff.
Delicious dinner for two
We had a great meal at Ziloufs, the highlight being the incredible steak and delicious pork belly. The service was excellent also. Unfortunately the set menu choices were rather limited however.
End of the Week
At the end of a hectic week, when everyone has demanded your time, you need some time to yourself and someone else to do the running around, Ziloufs is the perfect place to meet up with friends and be selfish. The staff are very attentive and they do the running around to get you what you want, with out delays. The ambience is lively and fun, all in all the perfect counterpoint to a busy working week.
I have dined at Zilzoufs on
I have dined at Zilzoufs on several occasions usually with the need to turn around promptly, service and food qulaity are always good, the steak nigh and 2 courses for £15 ofers are particularly good value
I found this restaraunt on
I found this restaraunt on Top Table- hadnt heard of it before but the menu looked nice and the steak special (2 for £20) sounded great - its always a risk to go to a new place but we were so pleasantly surprised- the food was absolutely delicious - there wasnt a crumb left on our plates- the 4 of us who had steaks loved them and the chips were amazing. The others loved their dishes too.
Our 2 waitresses were great- very friendly and excellent service - would highly recommend
I have been to Ziloufs a few times now. The menu is a little limited but everything on there is delicious and I have never been disappointed by the food. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and there is never the pressure to leave the moment your food is finished you get in more central restaurants. The service is prompt but not intrusive. This is one of my favourite restaurants in that area of London and I will certainly be visiting again.

Good Value at Ziloufs
Nice atmosphere, good service and interesting menu choices. The food was well prepared and tasty and our pre-dinner cocktail was delicious and especially good value during the Happy Hour. The 2 course fixed price menu is excellent for the money. Would recommend
