Indian restaurant in Shadwell. According to What's In Wapping, it opened in May 2011 on the old site of River Spice.

They also do takeaway, and offer online delivery via Hungry House and via Just Eat. As of August 2011, their website says they do free delivery within 5 miles, minimum order £15.

secretlondon ordered from here one weekday evening in August 2011. I had chicken momo (£4), gosht kata masala (£8), saag paneer (£3.55), pilau rice (£2.55), plain paratha (£2), and bangla salad (£3.25).

It arrived within the time and with two poppodoms, one of which was burnt. The chicken momo wasn't what I was expecting. Momo are Tibetan dumplings. This was one long stuffed chapatti with a seasoned chicken filling. It was okay but wasn't momos.

The lamb curry was fine and the paratha okay. The bangla salad was just tomato, cucumber and coriander, not the "mixed salad dressed with mustard oil, fresh chilli, coriander and lime juice" that was advertised. I couldn't taste any chilli and it was generally disappointing.

secretlondon's verdict: My general perception is that it is overpriced for what it is. They charge premium curry prices for a takeaway, but don't deliver a premium product.
