Sheba is a good place to eat and enjoy excellent Indian cuisine. I first visited here in July and it was so good I returned this weekend on September 11th for another fantastic meal. The staff are brilliant with and look after you very well....Thanks to Jimmie who enticed us in whilst walking along brick lane when we were wondering where to eat on a wet July evening. He said the food and service would be good and he wasn’t wrong. It’s absolutely superb, when I tasted the lime pickle at the start I knew I was in for a treat! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again soon at Sheba for another enjoyable meal & visit. Many thanks to everyone for looking after us so well. Best wishes Rufus. 🙂👍More

It's a long time since I have visited Brick Lane and the many Asian restaurants on offer. We were in London recently and decided we would visit again. The host of Sheba was so welcoming and so in tune with the sort of meal we...wanted. The menu was very extensive containing a very large number of dishes I've never heard of before. There were four of us. We didn't leave a single grain of rice - it was all simply superb. I will most certainly be back. I strongly recommend it.More

Came here as a group of 7. Curry’s were amazing the lamb saag was a highlight. Tried the Bollywood blast, which was spicy but very very tasty. Coffee had cream with it which we particularly enjoyed. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Fantastic start to...the weekend. Would definitely come again. 10/10 would recommend.More
