Zala is the brainchild of chef Tomer Niv, who has also cooked at The Ledbury and was head chef at R’amas Kitchen in Jerusalem before it was destroyed by a fire last year.
Niv has worked with Zala head chef Stefanos Avdis, formerly of Street Kitchen, The Greek Larder and Princi, to create a menu using traditional Arab and Mediterranean ingredients.
Dishes will include diced chicken breast fried in paprika oil served in pita (£12); a beef and lamb matbucha pizza with tahini, sage yoghurt and crushed tomatoes (£9); and a grilled pita with 'arayas' grilled beef (£10). Guests will also be offered complimentary mezze dishes on arrival.
The 38-cover restaurant will feature 12 outside seats, as well as an outdoor takeaway bar and pizza oven.
Syrian food has been tipped as a food trend to watch with initiatives such as the #CookforSyria cookbook bringing awareness of the cuisine to a wider market.
Zala will soft launch on 24-26 April before officially opening on 27 April.
