Work event with about 30 people in attendance and all served accurately and together. Menu choice was good and food was served as quickly as possible and was all hot and tasty. Service was friendly. Operates as on and off license and we took our own which does restrict some pre set menu choices but no drama. Good night out,... More

Maybe the worst service i had in a long time. Went with a group of 15, the starter took too long to come and they gave the main course with the starters, which i thought to be pathetic really! They rushed us, we couldn't even finish our beers. Will never return!

Wanted to have a curry on Brick Lane, but obviously needed somewhere with good veggie options. After getting pestered by many a person to go into their hopelessly meat focussed eateries, we stumbled upon Sheba. A nice range of unusual veggie mains and sides - we had the aubergine side dish and it was almost as big as a main... More

Visited with my Son on a busy Friday evening. The usual Brick Lane touts outside every restaurant trying to offer deals to get you in, but liked the fact it was already busy. After a little haggling with the guy outside over the 'best deal' he could offer, we settled on 2 free pints, a starter and 25% off the... More

I love curry and, because of of this, I have tried many different restaurants around the world. Sheba in Brick Lane, London, is one of the best curry places that I have been to! The menu is very varied and offers something to suit everyone - from the most modestly spiced food to things which are fiery and hot having... More

Every time I comme to London, I always head to Brick Lane for an Indian or Bangladeshi meal. It's the closest you'll get to being in one of those countries. As my favorite restaurant of the past 10 years had closed, I had to pick from many as a respectable substitute. The food at Sheba was awesome, especially washed down... More

Great Indian restaurant - super friendly staff and a good atmosphere. The food was exceptional and cooked to order - the restaurant didn't do chips (i like chips with my Curry 😆) so the manager nipped out a bought me a portion from the take away up the road - great. Prices are reasonable as well - overall highly recommended.

Third visit to this place - 3rd time we've been offered a good deal, and the 3rd time I've walked away from dinner happy and satisfied. The pros: extensive menu, prices are reasonable, byo drinks, service is wonderful, meals are quick and meals are tasty Cons: the place is loud, due to popularity everytime I've been the place is full....

Went for a curry around 10pm on Sat night. The place was quiet but the staff were incredibly noisy. Shouting, running through the restaurant, bickering - not good for atmosphere. Order taken quickly, too quickly I feel. Cold plates and food almost thrown at us. No check back on food. Food itself was average. Bill was presented without asking. We... More

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.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
Spitalfields
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.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
