This Indian restaurant was one the things I remember most about our trip to London . My wife booked us a table in advance, and I’m glad she did as the line to get a table was really long. The ambience was fun yet intimate....The food and drinks were top notch. We are planing to visit London again, and we’ll definitely be going back to City Spice 🍛More

Great welcome. Great prices. Very generous portions, which is good because it was all tasty. Lovely poppadoms and nan. Would return there with pleasure.

Visited here on Thursday night with a colleague from work. The venue doesn’t look like anything special inside, however the food more than makes up for that. I had a mixed kebab starter and a chicken madras for my main. Absolutely delicious. The curry was...hot, but the spices could be clearly identified. This is a local family business and you could tell by the pride that the staff had in their establishment. I am back down for the final week of my course in two weeks and I will definitely be making a visit here.More

Dinner at City Spice is a must. They are the only restaurant on Brick Lane that has safety precautions such as glass in between individual tables and all staff wear face masks . The food such as Chicken curry leaf is unmissable. Would recommend to...anyone who wants a safe tasty meal.More

Went with my partner last month. Food was really good. But atmosphere was ruined by owner / manager who kept on barking at and reprimanding employees in a demeaning way.

Pretty good meal - most of these places down brick lane are a gamble -but this is ok for a quick meal to keep you going. Reasonable prices / good service

I was staying close by so decided to go for a curry in Brick Lane. Was looking at the menu outside and was enticed in by a barker at the door (I’m not normally keen on this but quite liked the look of the place...anyway. I was given a table downstairs, which is where they appear to put single blokes (me), or groups of blokes (a couple we’re in), while younger couples etc were seated by the windows upstairs. Tables quite close together but a decent atmosphere. Staff were efficient and service was quick. My veg puree seemed a bit more like Chinese than Indian but quite tasty all the same. My curry was good, rice nicely cooked. Overall pretty good but I’m a bit surprised at the claims of celebrity diners as I’ve had better curries nearby. Price was good for what you got.More

We had lunch here while exploring Shoreditch and Spitalfields. A couple of days earlier we ate dinner at a much fancier Indian place in West London and were very disappointed--thank goodness we came here. We had the most cliche lunch one can think of: chicken...tikka masala and lamb buryani, but everything was great. Spicey, warm, and flavorful. The place is immaculate and the service was professional. This street is lined with curry houses--and hawkers trying to wrangle you inside. Ignore them and eat here.More

A Beautiful quick curry. The service at city spice is impeccable with lots of attentive knowledgeable waiters who are prompt in service. The food was also excellent with spices I haven’t tried before. Try if you love a nice curry in a nice place.
