It's changed a bit in 25 years but it still has it's vibrancy and buzz. Street food market worth the trip alone but strike out along the side streets to see some inspired street art and some beautiful architecture. The place is oozing history. Just wish I could have tracked down the saree stalls. Next time.

If you are in the spitalfields/brick lane area this is highly recommended for a lunchtime, we have been here a couple of times and the food is excellent, the choice is amazing you can have any type of food you wish, this time I had Malaysian and it was so tasty, my husband had a hot dog which he said was excellent. The last time we came we had Mexican which was equally good. If you have time visit the spitalfields craft market.

So many great stalls, with such a variety of good looking food. We wanted to try everything! The few things we did finally decide on were great.

All dishes seemed to be about 5-6 pounds for a huge meal. Super good value!

Will be back to try out some other options again for sure!

Fantastic street food! All parts of the globe are represented here. We tried Sri Lankan, Persian and Ethiopean, which were all delicious and very good value at £5/£6 a plate. We were also tempted by the Brazilian, Cuban, Italian and Japanese offerings. Will try those next time! The only downside is the lack of seating but we were happy walking around with our plates watching all the cooks and their food offerings.
