    Very good curry indeed. The tandoori lamb chops were the best I've tasted.

    I had a very enjoyable meal. The owner was present and I enjoyed speaking with him and how well he has done over the last 20 years. I do think the meal ended up a little bit pricey for a curry but I cannot fault the food or service.

    Great food and service. Clean and friendly. Butter chicken best ever.

    Asked for chicken tikka madras but the chicken i got was not tikka, overall not a great Madras. Date decor, cold atmosphere downstairs, no vibe. Terrible toilets / wash-up facilities.

    All thanks to my sister Inlaw who introduced me to city spice, had an awesome night out with my girlfriend, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was cosy and the service was amazing as the staff were friendly and efficient. We weren't disappointed at all

    Amazing food! Bellissimo! Thoroughly enjoyed my Lamb Shank, completely tender in its meat and full of spice and sauce. Wife had the black pepper lamb which was really really nice, as she said. Really recommend booking here, you can get a 20% discount for booking early.

    Great Jalfirezei here, this is a curry I have all the time, but these guys do the best Jalfriezi by far. Service was efficient, nice and warm restaurant in the typical British weather.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Sunday celebrating my daughter's 13th birthday. The menu was very extensive and offered a wide selection. My only difficulty was choosing one dish over another! When the food was brought to the table it was a complete sensory experience and we couldn't wait to tuck in. We all enjoyed our chosen dishes and the opportunity to try new flavours. We loved the colour and vibrancy of Brick Lane and would definitely return.
