    we made a 6:30 reservation and were seated promptly. The waiter introduced himself, and chatted a while asking had we been there before and had we eaten curry or hot foods before, and made 3 excellent suggestions. We would definitely suggest this restaurant and dine there again.

    As Brits visiting New York we were craving a proper curry! Brick Lane really hit he spot, excellent food, good portion size and all at a reasonable price. The waitress was excellent, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend if you are in the area of Midtown.

    Having seen Brick Lane featured in Man v Food it was a must on our New York visit. The food was superb, each ingredient fresh and tasty and as I was worried that the Phaal would overpower everything else, I ordered it as a side dish. Well I'm ready to take on the Phaal challenge next time, it's amazing!!

    We went to Brick Lane Curry House for the purpose of my daughter taking the Phaal challenge. My food and appetizers were good but nothing outstanding. My daughter completed the challenge and I'm proud of her for it. The dish itself is not anything a foodie would want to attempt. Service was excellent.

    Great curry house with prompt and friendly service. Bonus: If you're gluten free - they are very knowledgeable and 80% is GF. Deliciously spiced and reasonably priced.

  • Did not live up to the hype

    The same can be said about the food as the "phaal": more pain and sweat than flavor. The curries did not have the distinct taste of the region they claimed to be from. Pretty plain, almost bland. Not worth the money or the hype.

    Brick Lane serves the Indian cuisine found in my favorite Indian restaurants in.London and Mumbai . Go for the fresh, well prepared food but don't expect ambiance in this basic neighborhood restaurant on 53rd st

    Great curries, especially with lamb. Naan was OK not great. Goat was tough; wouldn't order again. Service was attentive and helpful.

    We ordered the lamb chops and salmon to start then shared the chicken bhuna. We also ordered raita and mango chutney on the side with naan and rice. It was all delicious and our waitress was very friendly and helpful--she was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us choose what to order. I definitely recommend.

    I had a wonderful time. The food was heaven to my palette. I can not wait to visit again. I have already told several of my friends. I have been to several Indian places in the city thi was by far one of the best. The person who was dining with me is what you might call a picky eater, and he loved his meal! Thank you for an amazing journey to the far east!

    Great servcie and great food, I had the saag with tofu made just spicy to my liking. My husband had a half portion of the phaal which boasts to be the hottest curry in the world. He was able to eat some with lots of bread and rice to alleviate the heat although the taste was not to die for. Stick with other menu items such as the prawn appetizer or the vindaloo! Cant wait to go back,

    The food was delicious. Restaurant was a little small and not at all decorated. Sat next to an obviously broken heater that was very noisy and in the need of some professional repair.
