Good choice

After booking into another restaurant and walking out, this was a great find. Not too pushy, good food with a 20 per cent discount, clean and helpful staff. I would definitely go back here again although it was a bit noisy.

Most Londoners know not to go t Brick Lane if you want actually decent Indian especially without tourists. This is the restaurant to go to if you happen to be forced by gun point to go to the lane and curry. Good food, good prices, and it is always packed with tourists and locals. The waitstaff might be a bit... More

Deserves 5 stars. Packed last night, Friday. Lamb chops for starters were AMAZING. The Fish Kofta Masala and Shatkora chicken were exquisite. Service was excellent.

We've popped by for an informal dinner on a Christmas day, without high expectations, and weren't disappointed. Especially my coriander lamb was very recommendable: succulent, aromatic, simply delicious. Worth a visit.

Called in for a quick family lunch - lucky we were there early as first table in and first to be served (fortunately) as everyone else seemed to wait too long for their food. One waiter struggling to keep up with all the tables bring utilised. Strange that this restaurant was full when all the others were virtually empty Probably... More

We got lured into this restaurant by a fast talking tout who promised us 2 free drinks of our choice each, 10% off the bill, and we would not be charged at all if we didn't find the food good. Against our better judgement after reading some less-than-good reviews, we decided to go for it since our stomachs were growling... More

Was approached by a tout offering the world, fell for it - 20% off and free drink. Inside, busy so we thought must be good, sat down, fast to be served, was given our free beer, it was awful "Bangla beer", please don't choose this, no taste, label on bottle looks home made, and contents full of gas! - yuk!...

Tempted to go in by Trip Advisor reviews, the guy on the street and the fact that the place was already quite full. The decor was cheap and cheerful and the menu very typical. We ordered beers and starters which came very quickly and were fine. Our mains were average at best and, disappointedly, went cold very quickly. I had... More

First visit to brick lane. Liked some of the shops. Not really impressed with the curry experience. Hated the hassle from the touts from almost all restaurants. Felt like a cheap holiday experience. This restaurant had some banner saying it had won a trip advisor award.... had it? Every restaurant had won some award or other. 20% off, free round... More
