Description: When a wise old man had a dream and literally ran out of time someone had to take up the responsibility of making that dream possible. A chef for 45 years, he served the industry selflessly perfecting his art day by day. His name was IRANA Gooranah. Today Irana fulfils that dream. But this dream is built on the art inherited from this wise old man - the art of satisfying the most discerning connoisseur of fine food.

“Wonderful dining experience.”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Irana's is one of my favorite restaurants. And the one to go to in East London. Even if you are not a person who likes spicy and hot food, they will make it to your liking and you will be converted. Irana's is a must try.

“Best Curries in Town!!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

These people know how to make fabulous curries and offer a variety to suit all palates. The restaurant itself is not in the most successful location despite its proximity - nothing seems to last there - so I do hope this time it all works out. These passionate creative curry-makers deserve every success so go there and try it, you will not be disappointed.

“A taste sensation”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Seeing that this was my eighth visit to Irana, I figured it was about time I write a review. I am a bit of a curry freak and Irana satisfies my cravings every time. The food is sublime, last night I had the dal gosht soup as a starter and the mutton vindaloo as a main. I was in curry heaven! It was the first time I had this soup and WOW, really, WOW!!! The owners are "hands on" and friendly, making the evening even better. Do yourself a favour, go to Irana. Your taste buds will thank you.
