Description: One of the oldest and best loved Indian restaurants in London, Sheba has been serving Brick Lane since 1974. Awarded Best Curry House in the UK in The Cobra Good Curry Guide 2015, Sheba offers classic dishes alongside signature recipes, a range of vegetarian options and Bangladeshi seafood specials. Using seasonal ingredients directly from all corners of South East Asia, the Sheba menu tantalises diners with both recognisable classics and signature specials. Only premium halal meat is used, with a selection of kebabs being a popular option to share. Tandoori recipes use carefully measured blends of spices and yoghurts, while a traditional tandoori grill showcases the Sheba restaurant jerk seasoning. As well as a great selection of vegetarian dishes, Indian seafood delicacies at Sheba Restaurant Brick Lane are an eclectic venture away from the norm that features at so many other curry houses. The staff, the Bollywood interior, add to the exotic ambience. A key part of Brick Lane, Sheba Restaurant London is just stones throw away from Shoreditch High Street Station, Liverpool Street and Aldgate East Tube.

“Get Discount in Writing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

7 of us had pre-booked a table for 6.30, and were told a 25% discount on the food would be given. We were told on entry that this was not possible, but with negotiation this was eventually honoured. The food was fine, although it was a long time coming. No tap water was supplied (although requested) and no hot towels were presented at the end of the meal. The 25% discount was not given, and the waiter denied saying it. We did not tip, and we will not return.

“Food good, the rest not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We ate early as we had tickets to a show, so the atmosphere was lacking, but the food was reasonably tasty and we were early enough to bag the earlybird price which more or less made it worth it. Can't stand the touts out the front.

“VERY GOOD”

This is the best restaurant. Queen of all restaurant. Nice big restaurant with very nice atmosphere. Food is excellent. Everything is good about Sheba, queen of curry. Menu is very cheap and good value for money.

“OK but but spectacularly good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Went here with a friend on a recommendation that it had won a number of awards. Was expecting a spectacular and unique meal but was disappointed - the meal was nice but ordinary. The service was friendly and attentive and everything was spotlessly clean. I has one of their specialities, lamb with pumpkin and it was good, if somewhat fatty. My friend had chilli chicken. Both were on the hot side but still quite edible. However, I expected better, given the awards that this restaurant had won.
