Coming from Leicester, curry capital of the country :) I am not easily impressed. However, The Lamb Dhansak and mushroom rice at Sheba were fantastic as was the atmosphere and service. I have visited Sheba 3 times now and not been disappointed. There is a...More

One of the best Indian restaurants on Brick Lane, it gets crowded and loud, but the spices are as good as it gets.

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.

Description
One of the oldest and best loved Indian restaurants in London, Sheba has been serving Brick Lane since 1974. Awarded Best Curry House in the UK in The Cobra Good Curry Guide 2015, Sheba offers classic dishes alongside signature recipes, a range of vegetarian options and Bangladeshi seafood specials. Using seasonal ingredients directly from all corners of South East Asia, the Sheba menu tantalises diners with both recognisable classics and signature specials. Only premium halal meat is used, with a selection of kebabs being a popular option to share. Tandoori recipes use carefully measured blends of spices and yoghurts, while a traditional tandoori grill showcases the Sheba restaurant jerk seasoning. As well as a great selection of vegetarian dishes, Indian seafood delicacies at Sheba Restaurant Brick Lane are an eclectic venture away from the norm that features at so many other curry houses. The staff, the Bollywood interior, add to the exotic ambience. A key part of Brick Lane, Sheba Restaurant London is just stones throw away from Shoreditch High Street Station, Liverpool Street and Aldgate East Tube.
