"Finally got to Brick Lane to try not only their London style curries, but the infamous phal curry that is one of the world's hottest developed as a dare. We found the food to be absolutely fresh and excellent in every regard. Flavors were bright and layered as good Indian cooking is supposed to be but usually is not in most restaurants. Even the phal, that they say is more heat and pain than flavor, was very complex and tasty-in small amounts at a time!! The service we had was excellent. Very friendly, helpful, and professional. I had read other reviews saying service was lacking, so I went with this in mind. Not valid from my experience and how I saw others being treated as well. Our servers were very on point, paced the meal well, unobtrusive, and did not rush to push us out the door at the end of the meal. Don't hesitate to go and give them a try. I know we'll be back and will be stopping in to the Manhattan location soon."

"I have never had tandori vegetables better anywhere else! Served on a festive sizzling hot tray that keeps your food warm while you eat If you are vegan or vegetarian you must give it a try. Our waiter was kind and attentive. They had cheezy music blasting that seemed incongrous with the atmosphere that i didnt care for- but not a big deal."
"We went on a busy Saturday night -- the hostess was working very hard to get everyone settled. There was much reliance on her -- perhaps the management would consider an extra staff member for those busy times.
The food experience was a mixed one. The appetizer (Samosa Chaat) was delicious and interesting -- exactly the sort of thing we went to Bricklane to try. The saag, however, was disappointing. It was bland and slimy -- fairly unappetizing. The tandoori prawns and the accompanying curry sauce was lovely.
This was our first trip to Bricklane, and we we would go back, except the prices are so high."
