One of Brick Lane’s first curry houses is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a special menu to mark the occasion.
Sheba Brick Lane was opened in 1974 by Motabir Ali and his family, and is currently run by his nephew.
Sultan Miah, 34, has been the manager of Sheba for nearly five years.
“It’s a really great achievement,” said Sultan. “We had a celebratory dinner and we invited all our regular customers for the week.
“There will also be a special 40th anniversary menu, which is going to start soon.

Pat Chapman, editor of Cobra Good Curry Guide, which named Sheba the best UK curry house last year, said: “It is a fantastic achievement and thoroughly deserved.
“Amazing dishes such as the Lamb Shank, Shofri Gost Salman Tikka and a plethora of delicious fish dishes make Sheba a unique curry house.”
