What more can I say really? A group of six of us visited here and were served with a great range of curries very quickly and in a very polite fashion. A great spot for food and atmosphere.

There are loads of curry houses to choose from down Brick Lane. This is a safe bet. Really good quality food, nice staff. You can bring your own drink too. I was really impressed with the atmosphere and will definitely be returning

Popular and great food. Was exactly what I’d want from a good Indian, waiter was a bit on the non-engaged / distracted side, which brought the rating down, food made up for it.

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.
