So you can get caught in the Brick Lane hype or if you walk 50 paces you will find one of the best here! Great staff/spotless/amazing food! This is not a massive establishment so I would book to avoid disappointment. It has to be the...most spotless restaurant I have been in! Staff....really friendly and helpful. The place has a really nice cosy feel about it. As for the food....stunning! Full of flavour, piping hot and just YUM! Also you BYO own booze if you drink! Seriously what more could you ask for! Get there before lockdown and if not enjoy their food taken away or get back after lockdown....this kind of place NEEDS your support!More

We spent the day wandering the markets around Brick Lane then decided it would be fun to have a curry. Meraz was really clean and well organised for social distancing. The menu was a bit more interesting than your regular curry house. We ordered dishes...we weren’t familiar with and all were delicious. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.More

A group of five of us booked for 7:30 at Meraz last night. The food and service were incredibly good and the restaurant felt super clean and well organised for distancing. The food came out quick, fresh and hot; literally couldn't be better. We'll go...back soon to have more of the menu! I'd encourage everyone to order or book a table from Meraz these guys are great!More

I found this laid back Bangladeshi restaurant while working in the area. It is no surprise that it has been going for over 40 years. Sami was super friendly when I went in solo, took the time to explain the difference between paneer and ponir...to me and gave me free tea, for no reason at all. The tandoori chicken was amazing. The vegetable dishes were all full of subtle flavour. Because I liked it so much, I recommended it for a welcome lunch for a visiting colleague from Baroda. He was full of compliments for the great service, food and the expert selection of Bollywood music videos. My best place around Brick Lane.More

I agree with Dungle. The Meraz is too small, but I, too, thought the people there very friendly, so they may be able to offer some help, or suggestions, if you call them.
