Once you've found the way in, this turns out to be a very friendly and efficient place to come for a drink. Bottles of Prosecco were served nicely chilled. The environment was comfortable and relaxed. A good place to know about - given that everywhere...More

So many great stalls, with such a variety of good looking food. We wanted to try everything! The few things we did finally decide on were great. All dishes seemed to be about 5-6 pounds for a huge meal. Super good value! Will be back...More

Fantastic street food! All parts of the globe are represented here. We tried Sri Lankan, Persian and Ethiopean, which were all delicious and very good value at £5/£6 a plate. We were also tempted by the Brazilian, Cuban, Italian and Japanese offerings. Will try those...More

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.
