Ended up in Sheba a few times now following the relentless hagle march up and down Brick Lane. For some reason they always seem to offer slightly better deals. Food and service has always been good. No complaints and always a good atmosphere.

Enjoyed a delicious curry with a very affordable price and friendly service. Had a nice variety of dishes (not just the normal madras, balti, pathia...), including a wide range of vegetarian/vegan options. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

Always enjoy a visit to Sheba. The food is great and service friendly. Once I went elsewhere on Brick Lane to try something different and never again, Sheba is the best in my opinion and has so much choice of food and drink.

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.
