Food was good with spice but prices were a bit high. Nothing wrong with it just nothing special.

The best Indian food in Manhattan, IMHO.
Since this review has to be longer than that, I'll say I also love that they have Kingfischer beer.

We love Indian and curry so I made the reservation through Open Table for 3:30 pm at 3. We walked into the restaurant not knowing they were in between lunch and dinner. We said we had a reservation and were seated. We were the only 2 people in the restaurant.

The service was excellent! My wife thought we should try some new items or things we would not normally order. The food was perfect! The spice was spot on! The chef came out to ask how our meal was. We left with leftovers!

We will go back!

Thank you to the staff for looking out for us in between services!

We LOOOVE this restaurant. In fact, I wouldn't allow you to eat Indian food anywhere else! The quality is well above any other Indian restaurant in NYC or DC . The tastes are unique and different from what you're used to - SO much better. The chef is glad to come out and discuss the dishes with you and the waitstaff are happy and friendly and take pride in the food and atmosphere.

Had a nice experience having food at this restaurant. We went in the late afternoon so the place was almost empty. The ambiance is pretty good, though the seating space is a bit cramped. Food service speed was good. Food quality was excellent. Staff service level was pretty good as well. Overall it was a good experience and is recommended for people looking for Halal or Kosher spicy food in Midtown Manhattan area.

We looked for authentic Indian in NYC and the Brick Lane Curry House had great on line reviews. We were really happy with the service and the food was amazing. Some dishes are hot, but we really like hot so it was great for us. Great service. It is a small place so reserve a table if you can. Great Chicken Biryani and Lamb Samosas!

The garlic naan was one of the naans I've ever had. Good food and the portions were great. Ate so much and still had leftovers.

Food was great as always. Server seemed in a rush to go home. Dropped the bill while we still had full glasses of wine and kept hovering and checking to see if there was money in the billfold. Felt rushed out. So we went somewhere else for after dinner coffees.

Great experience, excellent food and drinks. Cute small place, only complaint would be the lighting, very dim hard to see the menu

Bricklane has great authentic Indian Food. I have been ordering lunch from them for many years and finally got to have dinner there and was not disappointed. Staff was very nice, polite and pleasant. Would definitely go back.

Great customer service and wonderful choices for Indian Food. And their wine list is marvelous along with their beers. WE've been there several times and always enjoy our visit.

Excellent curries with a friendly staff. Rather than take the super hot challenge, I was allowed to taste the super ho sauce. And it is super hot! Not so bitter like extract sauces, but very very hot. Our curries were very tasty and in large portions. You can get a half of a vegetable curry as a side and it will be big enough to share. The only complaint we had was that the vegetable curry that was supposed to be potatoes and cauliflower was almost all potatoes.

Not very busy, so we got lots of personal attention.
