The prices are in no way justified. Poor quality food (samosas and koorma, mixed tandoori platter), and the staff is not friendly. The best thing was the naan and special fried rice. Would not recommend.

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.
