Sheba restaurant in Brick Lane is well-known as one of the best Indian restaurants around. Boasting a fully licensed bar and extensive menu celebrating excellent meat, seafood and vegetables, this is a great place for a casual bite all the way up to a full celebration dinner. The decor is pared back with a touch of refinement, vibrant purple walls and wood floors. Service, as with many restaurants of this ilk, is friendly and hospitable. The staff are happy to explain the menu if needed and offer recommendations based on you and your group's specific preferences. 

At Sheba, start off with the classic snacks while you peruse the rest of the menu, such as poppadoms, samosas, pakoras and baji. The highly affordable tikka (lamb or chicken) is also a must. Veggies can enjoy chilli paneer and sheba zalzala bread, along with veggie versions of the rest of the snacks. The searingly hot tandoor turns out grilled goodies like lamb chops, sizzling king prawns, salmon, chicken and more. Those struggling to decide can go for the mixed grill, featuring the best dishes the tandoor has to offer. Other favourites at Sheba include the Bengal lamb shanks, cooked in aromatic spices until they melt off the bone. The bhuna naga is another Sheba signature, featuring lamb cooked in naga chillis and sauce (not for the faint palate). Other dishes such as vindaloo, dhansak, korma and biryani are also available. A wide choice of rice, bread and chapatis fit the bill for mopping up delicious sauce. 

Sheba is also famous for its set menus, allowing diners to enjoy a starter, main, side and drink extremely affordably. Sheba has won numerous awards, including Best Curry House in 2015 and East London Chef of the Year at the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards in 2018.

Nearly all the restaurants in Brick Lane always try to lure you in with discounts and free drinks and it can be hit and miss. We found it refreshing that Sheba does not operate a door tout to drum up business. Having booked a table for 10 people we can honestly say that the food and service is top notch at a fraction of price compared to the West End and other parts of Central London. As for the food I opted for the sophisticated Lobster Bengal special bengal lobster marinated for several hours, slow grilled in clay oven then cooked in special recipe. Rice included which cost only £14.50 with rice. Three good sized lobster tails sat under a mixture of vegetables in a limited sauce, although everything was well marinated. The lobster was amazing and the fact that the rice was included made the dish reasonably priced. I also enjoyed the lamb shank which was very soft falling off the bone easily. The bhuna sauce on the shank was to die for. I really recommend sheba for group bookings as it caters for all tastes. We really enjoyed our time there and we would be back again soon.
