Had heard this was one of the best. found the food was average at most. Not much taste at all. Samosa was so squashed it looked like it had been sat on. Curries were tasteless. Edible but nothing special

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.
