Brick Lane curry. The street has loads of indian / bangladeshi restuarants and you can haggle a discount before entering.

Can anyone esle comment on this? That seems awesome!

The only real haggling they will do is perhaps give you a free beer or similar. Still, can't complain.

Re Brick Lane.

The street is full of curry houses so competition is fierce. Outside of most restaurants you´ll find owners asking you to enter and offering discounts up to say 30% depending on your group size and how empty they are or free drinks (normaly the first round of beers). Obviously Friday and Saturday nights are busier and therefore maybe you´ll find less discounts but shop around!

Just check the bill at the end of the night as usually they conveniently forget to include the discount.

Hope this helps a bit more.

Brick Lane is pretty cool and there are a fair few relatively cheap places to eat. Chinatown, just off Soho, also has some fairly cheap places.

Oh yes, Chinatown. I become addicted to Yum Cha at the New World Restaurant.
