Before the smoking ban this place had a problem with people smoking marijuana. Since the smoking ban it has slightly lost its purpose... not as good as it used to be but still ok.

Trendy place, laid back vibe, coffee £2 free wifi. Good night out, shame it closes at 12. The food is fresh but not gourmet, nice place to chill out

right, I know nothing about the food, and quite frankly anyone who comes to brick lane and decides to pose in here with a tuna salad to satisfy a hunger pang needs their head examined. did all those wonderful wafts of curry pass you by or something?

Anyway, at night out the back is a medium sized club with a tasty soundsystem and some cool lights, with thumping music, and open until at least 6am. I urge you utmost caution when entering however!

there is a large female bouncer patrolling the door, snarling and barking obscenities to anyone who intrudes near her personal space. now this is not a bitter review, she has never personally offended/harmed/hospitilised me, but sweet mother of jesus, do not say the wrong thing near her or you will be belittled and cursed right out onto the street again. when she shouts, grown men quiver and listen, I have never in my years of visiting licensed premises (dodgy ones at that) come across such a fearsome bouncer. so yeah just a warning, behave, or she will eat you alive!

it is a great place to catch up with friends but recently with all these drug dealers around made this an unsafe place to visit to.
