We first visited the Ridgewood location and we loved everything. This was a little disappointing compared with the other location. The food was good and service prompt. Ridgewood was just better. I would definitely return if in the neighborhood but I am glad Ridgewood is closer.

The food is really quite good and the atmosphere is nice. Trendy and contemporary feel. However when you pay $55 for tiki masala (6 or 7 cubes) and tandoori prawns (6 pieces) and a naan, coupled with in personal/indifferent service. I'm not sure I will return.

I love this place, great authentic Indian food. It is small and can be a bit crowded, but well worth it. FYI, if its a cold night the breeze from the opening and closing of the door can be freezing.

They have the best Indian food in Montclair, which is saying something as there are a couple of really good Indian restaurants on Bloomfield Avenue. It is very small, so actually eating in Brick Lane can be challenging, especially during peak hours. Lunch is a great deal there and the crowds aren't there, at least during the week. They do...

We hadn't been back in a year. Our dinner was excellent. Portions have gotten bigger and were perfect. We shared samosas, an assorted chicken tandoori platter that continued to cook at tableside and shrimp jafrezi in a nice tomato and onion sauce. Homemade naan was good also. Service was pleasant and efficient and of course BYOB . The chicken was... More

Brick Lane's lunch special has got to be the best value in Montclair. For $10 you get to choose your main curry dish (smaller than the dinner portion but it doesn't matter since you'll be stuffed from everything else) which comes with rice, a side of lentils, a side of their veggie of the day, naan, and if this weren't...

Although this is part of a chain, the breadth and flexibility of the curries menu and the quality of the food is distinctive. It's a popular place. Serving size is about average. Value is good if not great.

This little curry restaurant is a terrific place to get an Indian meal in a comfortable and cozy atmosphere. I visited here when helping my son move into grad school at Montclair State. I love Indian food and he is the only other one in the family who shares this propensity. Hence, we take advantage of the opportunities when it... More

I have been to Brick Lane at least 10 times since they opened. The food at Brick Lane is quite good, and I don't say that about very many Indian restaurants since most are really mediocre and we cook Indian food at home often. I think their shrimp, fish and chicken curries are better than the lamb; this is because... More

I go to Indian restaurants fairly often and had hopes, based on initial hype, that Montclair would have a high quality Indian restaurant, at last. I've been there three times and the quality of the food has steadily declined. The food during my most recent visit was cold and had an odd spicing. Throughout all three visits, the noise was...
