Brick Lane Curry House
Posted by John & Jo on 09/28/2005
My wife and I spent a few days in NYC and had a taste for Indian food one night so we headed to the Indian row of restaurants on 6th Street and pretty much stumbled into this place on a whim. This place is one of the most memorable restaurants we've ever been to. The food was incredible and we salivate just thinking of the spicy and delicious dishes they cooked up for us. My wife is British and knows a thing or two about good curries and naan bread... and she keeps asking "when are we going back to NYC... to Brick Lane?" We live a few states away but will probably have to make the journey back soon... and taste again this bit of rice and spice heaven.

Regardless of the quality of the food at this restaurant, the service is poor. The food lacks subtle flavours and is overpoweringly spicy. Not satisfactory.

We ordered Dal Makhani, Milai Kofta, griller paneer, naan and the hottest dice (forgot the name). Do not order that hot curry. It's not worth the money. As rightly described in the menu, it's just pain and sweat and no taste. Milai Kofta was good. Dal Makhani was o.k. The naan (bread) was pretty big. Since they also give rice with currys, I think 1 naan or else is enough for 1 person. Service was nice but one thing I didn't like was that they automatically added 20% tip in the bill. We were party of 5. They may have put that in the menu but I didn't see it. Now I consider 15% to be average and anything above that to be generous. Why would restaurants think that the customers really liked them and would tip them generously. Overall I will give them 3.0 in a scale of 5.0

The simplest way to describe them, they are by far the best in this city. This is how curry is supposed to be. The Vindaloo was great, and the Bhaji's reminded me of London, keep the good work going, cheers!

Service is snail-like and the I'd have to say that the Aloo Gobhi and Chana Saag are subpar. In fact, all of the curries range from sub-mediocre to poor. Also it's overpriced.

Awesome curry. Try the Chicken Tikka Masala and the califlower.

Brick lane is a great little Indian resto. The place is cozy without being crowded and it really does have this warm ambiance. The food is excellent and fills you up quickly. My only caveat: Go early or on a weekday when the crowds don't overwhelm the place to avoid the spotty service.
