I have eaten in many restaurants on Brick lane and this was by far the worst. As we were eating our main course a MOUSE ran across the floor, I told the waiter and he acted shocked but I don’t think it was news to...More

Went to Brick Lane for the full Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi food experience. Had been in another restaurant before and tried there first, but that was full, so we went to Shampan instead...wrong decision! We were seated straight away, as there were plenty of tables free, but ended...More

Strange way the tables are pushed to the outer walls and then pulled out when you sit. The service was slow and the meal portions small. Presentation is sadly lacking. The flavours I. The dishes weren't too bad. At £50.25 for two entrees and two...More

This is a poor to average restaurant. The food was ok but not great. Served off metal canteen plates like in a school. Any china plates that we had were filthy underneath. The toilets were fairly grim too. Also they had the football playing loudly...More

Even the mango chutney was watered down. This place preys on tourists. The food is probably the worst indian/Bangladeshi in London.

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.
