Indian restaurants in this area offer really delicious dishes, but whatever you are tempted by, we advise you to go straight to Monsoon. There are no frills here, but you will be satisfied. Just behind Brick Lane, on Commercial Road, there is a restaurant known throughout the whole capital for its meat dishes - Hawksmoor. They say that the most delicious steaks and burgers in London are cooked here. Who does not want to check this personally?


In the Kahaila coffee house, everything is fine. Nobody complains about coffee here, but we must admit that it was the homemade cakes made from organic products what brought fame to the institution. And Kahaila is a platform for social projects, charitable campaigns and just communication. Here everything comes down to friendship.

Cocktails and night life.

After a long working day, we recommend that you take a look into the pub Alice. There is quite a lot of space here, so you do not have to sacrifice your personal space. Visitors are offered a large selection of beers and cocktails, and the interior in the style of the 50's will allow you to relax with chic.

Another great option is the Exit Bar. A simple name hides an equally simple menu, which includes burgers and cocktails. But why complicate the leisure, right?
