Brick Lane Curry House
Posted by Sorely Disappointed on 03/07/2014
In all my years of looking at Menu Pages, I've never before been motivated to write a review. Until now. I ordered from Brick Lane last weekend. I got the tandoori vegetables and mattar paneer. Both were terribly oily, yet somehow flavorless. The vegetables were inedible. I ate the mattar paneer (starvation took over), but it didn't taste like mattar paneer (or like anything) The garlic naan was decent but not enough to save the meal.

Greasy, oily, needlessly hot - that's not what a decent curry's supposed to be. Tried it, definitely do not recommend you do. There are plenty of other curry restaurants in the neighbourhood - two of them are superb. The others are mediocre, still a better option than this place.

However food is routine prosaic NYC Indian fare. The bar looks better maybe that is where they want to make the money. I tried the lunch special. The appetizer and dessert were a joke. Lamb was edible but better stuff is available in the immediate neighborhood. Nothing particularly special with the rice nor the naan. I do not feel any good reason to give it another try.

This was our first and LAST time getting food from this place. Delivery literally took 1 hour and 45 minutes. I called several times and they kept saying it'll be just a few more minutes. They lied over & over again. When it did arrive everything was cold. And WAY over spiced. My wife & I eat spicy food all the time but this was too much.

Given the good reviews on menupages (less so on yelp), I was eager to try it. Skip the appetizers, very disappointing, including their "signature" cauliflower -it's just fried in an OK tomato sauce. But the main dishes were very good, the service pleasant and a nice atmosphere. A little overpriced for neighborhood Indian.

This is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Very pretty space with a beautiful long bar, excellent food and a staff that knows their stuff. It is a little more expensive than most Indian restaurants (excluding the infamous Tamarind and other business class Indian restaurants) but the food is definitely a notch above. I highly recommend.
