We were waiting one hour to pay the bill although we asked for it in at least 5 times. It was desesperating. Not again!! and for the prices you can find food with better quality.

I had a date here and I've got to say I wasn't impressed. It really wasn't for me. I felt overdressed. It seems like it is a good cheap local restaurant. the food was ok but this wasn't really my style.

These guys need to spend some time with their grandmothers and re-learn how to cook South Asian food. I've eaten better out a cook-in-sauce jar. Vegetables were cooked to oblivion and the chutneys inedible.

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.
