Just discovered this small cafe just off Commercial Street, has a interesting selection of meat and veg curries, I get a box for a fiver that contains 2 curries rice and a little salad

Real comfort food, nice authentic tasting meat, and friendly service

This is my new goto lunch place when working in the city

    Thanks for the heads-up. Interestingly, it seems like they also offer some non-Thai curry options in their menu - Javanese Beef Curry, Malaysian Rendang (lamb/chicken but no beef?!) Curry and Hot Bali (sic) Curry.

        I'd go so far to say it's actually very bad. It's just a lot of food for very cheap. Very poor ingredients -- it's basically slop on rice. I found it using the yelp app, and was convinced further that universal acclaim for restaurants can often be a bad thing.

        Not sure if the Elephant & Castle restaurant klyeoh linked is related -- the Aldgate restaurant certainly doesn't have all of those dishes listed on the provided website.
