Total gamble in choosing this place, but it paid off big. Palek Ghost, chicken tikka Marsala, and chicken korma. Saffron rice and naan 3 ways. Very authentic and out the door for under £35 for 3 people? Would definitely come back.

OK, this is how it works. The tout will get you off the street with the promise of £15 a head with 1 free beer, starter, main, rice and side. They all do this, it's how they operate. What separates them like any other restaurant...More

Offered 2 free drinks each plus 20% off bill. Family of 5 went for birthday. Got in there and only allowed wine, beer or soft drink. All of which were watered down. Curry all tasted the same, baby puke and rice came to £12 for...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.
