The only thing going for this place is the staff. They were legends. However, it's an establishment that is frankly tired and rubbish! We went on a GroupOn deal and it was still terrible. My menu wouldn't open because there was all gunk stuck to...More

Went in and not much of an introduction. Seemed like they couldn’t be bothered lunch 1pm Saturday. Service then picked up a bit. Chicken korma isn’t great. The worse thing was the basmati rice. Clearly reused and microwaved. It was clumpy and tasted stale. Not...More

Great menu with wide choice of traditional dishes, and some of their own specialities. The service was friendly, fast and attentive. the food was tasty, presented well, and plenty of it. And, good value for money. One of the best curry houses I've been to.

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.
