We visited this place as part of a stag party in London. The service was prompt and efficient. Food very nice with some curry choices available that I hadn't seen before in Indian restaurants in the UK. This is a bring your own alchohol place,...More

The food was probably better than average on the Brick Lane strip but the service was weirdly anti-female, never experienced that before in any restaurant in the UK, including there, which is my local area. The manager/head waiter was really helpful but the others persistently...More

Shame to see the old facade fade away. Not least to say the old chef thankfully remains in place. Food is the same as it was but management has changed. Not for the worse which is a good factor but the decor is not amusing...More

I have visited Cafe Bangla a number of times over the years and have always enjoyed the food, loving the decor and atmosphere. It has now changed management, and I won't be back. We were told that even though there was a management and name...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.
