Competition is pretty stiff on Brick Lane, and you can get a really good deal from the touts out the front if you don't mind their rather aggressive approach. My son had been here before, and got us a starter, main, rice, naan and alcohol for 3 for £12 ea. it's quite a good deal as you just choose whatever... More

In a cosy place in Brick lane we can find a very real food experience with very kind service. I recommend the place to everyone that wants to eat Indian food with a good price-quality relation.

Our experience at this restaurant was AWFULLY dangerous! We asked before being seated if they served ANY nuts and explained that our daughter had a life threatening food allergy to peanuts and most tree nuts. We explained that if they served cashews in any of their dishes we would not dine there. They said they didn't serve cashews or peanuts-... More

Phoned to book with my Gourmet Card, no problem at all. Food was superb as was the service. Ripon our waiter was great, he knew several of our local restaurants in Norwich. Will definitely go back next London trip.

Among a lot of restaurants in Brick Lane, we decided to go there because of the service kindness and not pushy... and most importantly, the food was tasteful and excellent. The best lamb biriani i've had in years!!! Go go go

I recently visited the Bengal Village with my niece whilst on a trip over to the UK from South Africa. Oh my word, I had the best Indian food I have eaten in years! Service was excellent, unrushed, despite it being a very busy Saturday evening, and the food was exceptional, particularly my dhansak! I will be back some day.

Decided to try the Bengal Village based on some very good reviews but must say came away dissapointed. Staff were very good and friendly, however food left a lot to be desired. Started off with the usual poppadoms which were very stale and soft they were horrible, chutney was not very nice either. I then had a Tandoori Chicken starter... More

I don't write a lot of TripAdvisor reviews, but I wanted to help YOU decide which of the men shouting at you on Brick Lane to believe. They gave us a decent offer, stuck to it, the service was quick and friendly and - most importantly - the food was actually great.

Working across the UK we meet up once a quarter for a curry night; this time London. We chose Bengal Village on a recommendation having already decided on Brick Lane as our destination. The welcome was warm and friendly - no hard sell to come in and no lures of freebies, just pleasant and relaxed. We were all impressed with... More

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
