Wanted to try out a brick lane curry and we were not disappointed. the blend of spices was amazing and the melt in mouth tender delicious chicken which was obviously marinated before adding to the curry. The waiting staff were also polite and professional.Would recommend.

Easily one of the best curry houses on Brick Lane. Food was delicious and the staff were attentive and helpful. The chicken tandoori is one of the best we have ever had. Would highly recommend.

Many Thanks for your review!

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.
