Description: London's City Spice claims to be the best Indian restaurant on Brick Lane. It's quite a claim to live up to but we think that it might do just that. Located centrally on the notorious street, City Spice announces itself with neon signage and a bold blue painted exterior. Inside the dining room is bright, thanks to both large windows on two sides and a light, cream paint job and white tiled flooring. Entirely modern but unpretentious, the restaurant has modern furniture and contemporary images of London on the walls as well as touches of Indian influences throughout, its decor doubtless appealing to East London's young and arty set. Although inspired by the Bangladeshi origin of its owners and chefs, City Spice's menu covers most Indian regions, providing curries, tandoori specialties and tikkas alongside recipes from Bangladesh. Competitively priced for the area, it really isn't difficult to see why pre-booking a table is absolutely essential for this popular restaurant.

City Spice has a great vegan menu with plenty of options, including a thali plate.
It was such a treat to have a delicious, proper vegan curry (most curries in restaurants are made with ghee butter). Thank you!

Finding delicious authentic Indian food was a tough task, but after dinning with city spice restaurant we found the perfect place for super delicious Indian food. Tasty fresh food gives a perfect touch of India. The staff is very friendly and fast with service, Niaz suggested us some delicious food options. We loved the place. definitely 5* from us.

I have been here on a few occasions with friends and it never disappoints. There is a good variety of both veg and non veg dishes. The staff are always very polite. Location is great in the heart of the vibrant Brick Lane.

Great lunch!! Naan is awesome, which is unusual in other hotels.
I went city spice a couple times last week. Everything I've tried has been good. Staff is friendly. Service can be a bit slow but easy to flag down if you need anything.

I always leave full.

Some stuff I'm not daring enough to try, but it looks amazing. If you're into Indian food, I'm sure the things that aren't Chicken tikka masala (what I always share with my son) are very tasty.
