Tad Restaurant

The best place to eat in London!

AD, Means in Anatolia taste which brings you Mediterranean and the Middle East – a “mother’s fullness”

It represents the generous sentiment demonstrated throughout the Middle East that unites people of very different origins. Under Suleyman’s watchful eye, two generations of the Ulus family are dedicated to bringing the traditional Middle Eastern “soul” food to you, using only the fresh ingredients according to the market availability.

For this reason there mat be times when certain items may be in limited supply or unavailable.

The Ocakbasi (charcoal grill) is the focal point of the restaurant and enables you to watch all the dishes being prepared and cooked to order. Some dishes take longer than others to cook, so why not change down a gear, relax over a drink and prepare to enjoy something special? We are fully licensed, so you can choose from our value wines and soft drinks an aperitif and an accompaniment to your meal.

Dishes of the day and the lavas are cooked in the special stone floored oven, providing authentic Middle Eastern and Mediterranean peasant food in the heart of Hackney.

If you enjoy our food and service please don’t forget to tell your friends. If not please tell us.

Suleyman and his family hope you enjoy your mean in the restaurant or as a take-away.

Manage by H. Ulus
