Don't usually reply to user reviews, but this one seem odd, 1st avoid because food less than average, not so, check the viewlondon review (recommended), also I have dine hear as well as many of the other restaurants in Brick Lane, at least once a month, always a good standard. Then less than friendly staff! This is Brick Lane the service is good as there are many other restaurants that will want the diner. Finally the last part is no true, again this is Brick Lane probably the least expensive dinning experience in all of London! Each restaurant keeps a close eye on each other, I know for a fact they do lunch for under £8!
