Once you've found the way in, this turns out to be a very friendly and efficient place to come for a drink. Bottles of Prosecco were served nicely chilled. The environment was comfortable and relaxed. A good place to know about - given that everywhere else was packed out and had nowhere to sit.

Work in the building so it is rubbish - keep away - as am tired of telling tourists they are in the wrong part. It is big and used for many product launches / pop up shops and exhibitions - you will often see filming / supermodels and of course tourists

It's changed a bit in 25 years but it still has it's vibrancy and buzz. Street food market worth the trip alone but strike out along the side streets to see some inspired street art and some beautiful architecture. The place is oozing history. Just wish I could have tracked down the saree stalls. Next time.

So many great stalls, with such a variety of good looking food. We wanted to try everything! The few things we did finally decide on were great. All dishes seemed to be about 5-6 pounds for a huge meal. Super good value! Will be back to try out some other options again for sure!

Fantastic street food! All parts of the globe are represented here. We tried Sri Lankan, Persian and Ethiopean, which were all delicious and very good value at £5/£6 a plate. We were also tempted by the Brazilian, Cuban, Italian and Japanese offerings. Will try those next time! The only downside is the lack of seating but we were happy walking... More

Brick Lane might be best known for Indian food but come down The Boiler House at weekends for great, good value street food from all over the world. We particularly like Eithiopiques, lovely vegan food but there are other good choices for veggies. If you're there late in the day prices are reduced so the food is even better value.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
