We went to Brick Lane on a Sunday and it was in full flow. The market still has an authentic feel to it (meaning that there are still some people there for the market, not just tourists there to watch a market, like us...). The food options are diverse and well priced. We tried out a Japanese stall which was... More

I live right near Brick lane, it's seriously over rated Not the best curry houses in town but if you love being haggled and fighting to pay 10 quid for an average curry, couple of drinks and entrée go for it. The neighbouring areas of east London are great with the street art and better bars an restaurants. It is... More

Love Brick Lane-the food stalls are so diverse and FRESH. There is so much to please the senses, and it's not an expensive trip down this road at all. There are plenty of independent shops, stalls and perfect for buying unique gifts (or for yourself!). My highlights were snapping up a fashionable black dress for £3 (sale rail) a uniquely... More

Spend time and browse through Bricklane. Enjoy the weekend antique bazaar where you find pretty interesting items and food from all over the world. Don't the street art and the graffiti- plenty of them to enjoy. A must visit when you're in London.

Had a really fun time lastnight in Brick Lane :) We bartered with lots of people outside their Restaurants for the best Curry deals, which was amusing, and got a great deal at a nice two-floored restaurant called Pappadoms, in which we got a starter, main and rice/naan for £17 per head and got two beers and two wines thrown...

Brick Lane is a really quirky East End London Market and a must not miss if you are visiting London. Vintage bargains and London souvenirs to be found in the many stalls and cool shops and cafes. The area is rich in history and is famous for its Indian/Bangla cuisine and also near the famous flower market. In the summer... More

Brick Lane is famously known for curry restaurants. It's a good place to go if you like curry for sure, but it's a very diverse area with lots of independent bars, cafe's and restaurants (none of the usual bland chains) and some lovely pubs, bars and clubs. Just start at one end and meander your way to the other. Take... More

I didn't had great expectations, actually I had none, and when I got there was just the most amazing place in London, it's just what I was looking for to know here! People who enjoy exotic foods, vintage clothes, great music and street art will go mad about this place. I'm completely in love

On the way down to the market, we passed by a lot of Indian restaurants and they were so tempting but boy are we glad we didn't get hooked onto going into one of them. I'm not saying that you shouldn't but there's the market just down the road and they are equivalent to food heaven. It's crowded and we... More

I ate my way down Brick Lane on my first visit. Did the same on the second visit. How could I not eat those fragrant Indian foods, that chocolate (oh, the chocolate), the pulled ribs, the coffee? This is where you take your tastebuds when you want to treat them. It's crowded and you wait to be served, but the... More
