    We had a nice combination of goat, chicken, and lamb with a side of veg, malai kofta. We have eaten here several times before and the food is always consistently good. Great service.

    This is one of those rare times when the food was so bad that we had to leave almost all of it in the table , service was shotty , and the staff is rude , the waiter was nice but another guy who looked like their manger ( with an loud shirt and even louder tie) was not polite at all and was even scolding his staff in front of all the guests right in the middle of the dining room , very unprofessional . The food : Was prepared by someone who has never had good Indian food ..or may be even basic Indian food They have kind of a same pre cooked base which tasted rather raw and old , which they probably heated and put stuff in and brought out .. Original BLCH used to be way better at least 5 yrs ago Bottom line absolute failure and poor taste

    Beware of anything labelled even "medium hot" as it's really on fire. I'm used to and generally enjoy spicy food but even the medium level was too much for me and I barely ate half the entree.

    Was fantastic food and a great choice. The portions are huge and the onion bhaji for starters you could quite easily share between two or order something different and mix and match. Our service wasn't great. The waiter didn't seem too bothered about us and the was an obvious mix up in the kitchen as they brought the mains out whilst we were finishing our appetisers! But overall a great restaurant and fab food.

    I might be slightly bias because I've developed an addiction to their food, but this is one of the best Indian restaurants I've enjoyed. I usually go with my fiance on Friday nights and usually have more than enough food when we split 2 apps and 2 mains (which thankfully turns into awesome Saturday leftovers). Personal favorites: Lassuni Gobi - crispy cauliflower florets tossed in a tomato and garlic sauce., Samosa - crispy pastry, stuffed with spiced potatoes and peas or minced lamb. - *** GO WITH THE LAMB!*** Malai Kofta vegetable and cheese dumplings in a nutty tomato curry And the veggie Tikka Masala. I have to stress that at most restaurants trying something new comes with a certain degree of risk, here, everything is good.

    Emphasis on the flavors of the main ingredients, not overly creamed, buttered or uniformly seasoned like some places. Bright deep colors and distinct flavors. We tried both aloo and kheema samosas (wonderful), great lamb saag, and monkfish with a light chickpea batter and signature British-style curry sauce....all really delicious. Personable server with an interest in wine. There's a rear (quieter) dining room.

    We went here before a concert and had Lamb Biiryani and Dal Makhani after starting with an Onion Bhaji. The Onion Bhaji was the best thing as the Dal Makhani didn't have the requisite richness it should have had and the Lamb Biriyani was good but not great. I'd say this was comparable to a good Indian restaurant on 8th Street. The setting was, however, very nice.

    Authentic Indian food in an upscale restaurant with stellar service and a full-service bar. We had two dishes recommended by the waiter - a full fish and lamb - both were delicious but, spicy! . I would definitely ask for "mild" the next time around... One appetizer with cheddar cheese on top was just "ok" - unusual for Indian food and seemed out of place. Worth a visit.

    I live on upper east and order out from Brick Lane Curry House. However my dinner was severely disappointing! The restaurant was not crowded yet kitchen was backed up. 2 waitresses were serving the entire place. The wait for our appetizer was 40 minutes. Entre was a lost cause. Don't go unless you intend to spend the entire evening waiting! Huge disappointment.

    Nothing we ate tasted like Indian food. The naan was a piece of pita cut in quarters. I requested raita and received a bowl of something else. The special appetizer was so awful - cauliflower florets - that had I not been hungry, I would not have eaten it at all. The waitress was extremely nice and we felt sorry for her that she was working there. There were few customers, so the emptiness of the restaurant did not help the ambiance, although the restaurant looked nice enough. Without edible food, the rest doesn't matter. It did happen that we tried two wines - one white, and one red, and they were both good. I hope they change chefs or they will not be long for the world.

    I am a big fan of Indian food because I am Indian. I normally do NOT eat out for Indian food because I get it at home...however when I do eat out for Indian FOOD I would only recommend Brick Lane Curry House. I drive from South Jersey to eat here and then drive back home..about 2 hours. When I think about what makes this place good compared to other places is the unique recipes and the fact they take normal indian food and add such a flare to it. The ingredients such as the vegetables and the meat dishses are fresh. The food is cooked to order not pre-made like most other places. I was also happy that the service matched the quality of the food.

    Excellent, delicious, non-greasy Indian food! Loved the mango mojito. Service was fast and servers were pleasant. Overall the staff was very attentive without hovering around constantly. The restaurant has seating by the bar where there is action and a more formal area at the back of the restaurant. Overall best restaurant to dine with friends!
