“Best Indian Food in Town”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

A little pricey, but everything tastes really, really good. There are no mistakes with the selections. Saag panir is great, along with most of the other mix and match curries. Have never had fish there - always reluctant to have the strong spice flavor with delicate fish. Get several items and share - the bread is great.

“Real Indian Food”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

I grew up on Indian food and I usually go to Oak Tree, NJ. for euthentic Indian food. I'm so happy that Brick Lane is open so I don't have to drive so far. The food is really good and the lunch menu is a great value.
I have now eaten there 5-6 times and I can't get enough, I want to try all the dishes.
Only down fall is the parking, street parking only.

“awful food, bad service”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

I tried this place a few times, hopeful to find a good Indian restaurant in Montclair. Unfortunately the chicken in the Chicken Sag was tough and overcooked, and the sauce bland. Same problem with other chicken dishes. I found the service to vary from indifferent to rude, but never good.

“Excellent authentic Indian food go and enjoy”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Our family has eaten at Brick Lane 6-7 times since they have opened and the food is consistently excellent. They have choices for every palate. The specialties are quite good (we have had both the sizzlers) but we tend to stay with the curry where you pick a base (chicken, lamb, fish, goat, shrimp, tofu or veggie) and then choose the curry sauce to go along with it. We have not tried every combination yet we have tried all of the curries (except for the ever dangerous Phaal - which we read with amusement every time we are there.) Our favorites are Bhuna, Goan, Korma and Butter Marsala. We also like the Naan (garlic and rosemary) as well as the Biryani (basmat rice with tomatoes, onions). We always bring our 12 year old son who really enjoys variety. We each order a different entree and swich around so we can all sample different dishes. Brick Lane is BYO and while it is not inexpensive is a good value given the portion size (you can order 3 entrees for 4 people anf have plenty of food) and quality. The only slight negative is that the restaurant is quite small with on street parking so we tend to avoid the weekends.

“Great little restaurant, wonderful food!”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

What a terrific addition to the Montclair restaurant scene! I keep coming back to this cosy restaurant because of the authentic, well prepared food and the quiet yet attentive service. They offer a nice $10 lunch special with a choice of curries, two veggies, naan, rice and a small dessert. You will not go away hungry, with perfectly sized portions. So yummy!!
