A traditional curry house in London's East End, serving tantalising favourites such as Chicken Rezala & Lamb Lemongrass, there are a plethora of dishes to choose from as well as a competitively priced set meal. This 180 seater restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere especially on a Friday night. However if you prefer, there is a 60 seat private function room with a bar available on request. Friendly staff and memorable food make this venue the place to go for a spicy night out.

Best Meal Ever.

I was in this restaurant just last night and I have to say I haven't had a curry like that since I came back from Northern India 3 years ago. The staff are very friendly and the gentleman on the door was very helpful and got myself and my daughter a cab back to our hotel in Cricklewood. The... read more

One of our party knew this place and was keen that we try it after watching the West Ham vs Man Utd game and so eleven of us were dragged past the hawkers trying to get our business as we wandered down Brick Lane. First signs were good with nicely spaced, clean and well laid tables and some excellent smells... More

Had a lovely, tasty and authentic curry meal here a few weeks ago. Service was great and atmosphere good. The food was some of the best curry we have had and we eat Indian a lot! I felt the price was very reasonable too considering the quality.

Being in London on business felt the need for a curry on the famous Brick Lane so checked out the reviews on here. Went with Standard Balti but regret it now. Was hoping for an amazing curry but got a bland uninteresting meal. Onion bhaji was not worth the time and a tiny smudge of sauce on a plate was... More

It's what you'd expect from a curry house on Brick Lane: the food was really good, service was ok, nice atmosphere. Nothing special, but we had a good time.

As a London resident of ten years, I have sampled my fair share of Bangladesh operated Indian restaurants along Brick Lane. The experience is usually the same regardless of the venue: cheap curry, buckets of beer and an aggressive sales pitch at the front door. This place is a welcome exception. I put myself in the hands of our waiter... More

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
