I spent around a month in London and had the privilege of eating here many times. Great food. Great Service. Great Deals. One of my personal favorites on Brick Lane.

Great service! Staff was very friendly and attentive. They give you a good deal at the door and follow through with good food and friendly waiters. I recommend the Peshwari Naan with any meal.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
