2 for 1 at Shampan

The Shampan itself is a canvas boat found in rural parts of Bangladesh and in many ways encapsulates the unique cultural heritage that Bangladeshis have brought to Britain.

Today, the Shampan is a symbol of the very essence of rural life for people from all walks of life in Bangladesh. So much so that even metropolitan types take their holidays in the countryside and enjoy the fun to be had from the Shampan.

It is the Asian equivalent of the gondola of Venice!

The menu content has been designed to bring out the best of the Moghul tradition of north India and Bangladesh, with cooking directed by their internationally experienced head chef, Anhar.

As the world becomes more aware of the dangers of artificial additives in food preparation, the Shampan is setting an example it hopes other restaurants will follow. They never use food colouring or any other potentially harmful ingredients.

Situated in the heart of Spitalfields / Banglatown, with its now long established Bangladeshi community, there is no better setting to bring out the special character and flavour of the subcontinent.

The Shampan's experienced staff can guarantee meals and service of an exceptional standard. We are sure you won't be disappointed!

  • "This little restaurant is a gem. The atmosphere is lovely, it was full (and I mean FULL) when we went in, which to me is always a good sign. The food was excellent and we went in with the intention of using the 2.4.1 on the tastecard but we enjoyed it so much we paid full price. Service was good, food was beautiful. I would recommend it. The only thing that put me off a little was the toilets..I was surprised at how worn and unclean it felt compared to the rest of the restaurant, but if you can get past that, recommended. :o) Catherine "

  • "I love currys and living near Brick Lane I've had my fair share, but this is one of the best. The chicken tasted fresh and wasn't the usual 'dry' tasting. The currys had just the right amount of heat and the service was excellent too. It's only draw back was that it was rather small, but some say this only adds to the atmopshere. Great for mates, but maybe not dates. Overalll I would give it 8.5/10 James "
