Description: The Legenddeli Restaurant is a tiny backstreet bistro/cafe with a huge passion for food, having featured in the newspapers, radio and on TV, catered for Jamie oliver, jimmy, star guests and the crew on the set of the Friday night feast show. Legend deli has a huge emphasis on making everything from scratch with pure ingredients and zero preservatives or additives. The Legenddeli restaurant serves brunch and lunch everyday and a secret dinner menu on Friday and Saturday nights (booking is highly recommended) Chef jay and his partner jojo provide an attentive service and perfectly prepared restaurant dishes and desserts every single day and also offer a very, very popular brunch/lunch menu that is different to anything in south Essex. Basically if you fancy something different...try legenddeli. Give us a call for evening reservations or large private party bookings for any night of the week or visit our Facebook page at legend deli south end on sea for more of an insight. P.S WE ARE A B.Y.O RESTAURANT....PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR OWN WINE OR BEER.

i don't have take aways all that often, so when i do, I try to go for something good and a bit different. This was 1st time ordering thru the app (had just just eat before but prefer to avoid them having to pay commission to just eat) - had the roast service before which was amazing. I pre ordered a few hours in advance and the order arrived right on time and lovely and hot - excellent friendly service.

cheeseburger pancake rolls were amazing, walter white burger was lovely. Also ordered the Reuben to eat the next day (altho wish i could have eaten them both fresh that day!)

Support your local business doing great things, putting the work in and making a menu of varied and yummy dishes with thought put into them. wouldn't hesitate to order again and certainly will be - i'm planning it already. The burritos sound great, as does the curry.

Stumbled upon this gorgeous hidden gem a few years ago & visit whenever we’re in Southend. I’m vegetarian, he isn’t & this is perfect for both of us. Friendliest staff, wonderful fresh tasty food, good portions, amazing art work and fair prices. What more could you ask for? We’ve only had breakfast or lunch here, must aim for a dinner date soon

Ordered our Sunday lunch and it was superb.

We’d ordered Sunday roast dinners including the gammon (delicious) and the chicken (fresh and tasty).

Served with gorgeous roast potatoes, carrots (cooked and so flavoursome), peas, green beans and cabbage. The cabbage had a cheesy type topping which isn’t my personal preference but it was still delicious. Lots of gravy and a large Yorkshire pudding too.

Friendly delivery driver, delivered on time.

A real treat. Recommended.
