Recommended for its incredible cheap curries, BYO booze policy and the best lamb chops you will ever taste (FACT!) - if you go in the evening, you must book ahead as the queuing system during peak hours can be very chaotic (to put it mildly).

It's good quality at a good price, busy, authentic and no liquor licence, so bring your own beer or wine (and pay accordingly less than anywhere else). We had no reservations, but got a table after 10 minutes. The best Indian in East London.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
