It was my first time visiting Brick Lane with a friend and we were starving. We were about to head down to a little cosy café we had passed earlier on, but instead were stopped out the front of Bengal Village by a friendly man who offered us a fixed price deal. We thought, why not!? The interior was clean,... More

This was my second visit to a curry house on Brick Lane (have also been to Papadoms) and I am still yet to have a good meal! We experienced good service, however the food was a let down! The chicken tikka masala and the tarka dahl were terrible and quite small portions! The only saviour was the king prawn grill... More

Was recommended this place by a tour guide who no doubt was getting a back hander. The guy out front offered us a 20% per cent discount but I managed to negotiate 25%. The tables had no table cloths and the general feel of the table was that of a child's party. The food was average to say the least... More

Went there as you do looking for a deal as you do. Guy out the front says 2 free drinks 3 course meal for 10 quid each and sign says 5 stars on trip advisor. When it came time for the 2nd free drink "it was never agreed upon", the 3rd course of the meal was PLAIN RICE and the... More

We were recommended by a tour guide to go here, and were given a £10 discount for mentioning this! Food was good & tasty, service a little bit slow. We were asked to move tables after we had starting eating?! Bit random. Would probably try another place next time.

As tourists do in London, we also went to find a curry in Brick Lane. Tons of deals were intoruced to us along the street, and as we figured any of them would do, we chose bengal villages offer of a 12 quid meal including three courses and a drink. The food was very tasty, even though a true curry... More

The food is certainly good but what left a bad taste for me was being overcharged by £12. When this was pointed I was given a new bill with a simple shrug of indifferance. When we spoke with the manager he did not seem to care either. The impression given was that these things happen quite regularly and it left... More

This was my first visit to Brick Lane and I had no idea which restaurant we would choose. I'm glad we chose here. The food was superb. We chose from the chef's specials and were not disappointed. The lamb was tender and the chicken cooked to perfection. The service was top quality.
