We went there with my girlfriend on a Friday night. They had some northeast Indian (Calcutta) specials. I ordered the seabass special. It was superb. My girlfriend ordered the chicken curry. She said it was very rich in taste. I don't even like very spicy food but the food was so delicious I had to finish it! Oh, and the bread (luchi it's called) was great too.

Pros: lamb chops & sizzling meat, chicken tikka massala

Cons: non existant delivery to the west side

.

I have ordered from here before as the curries remind me of being back in England, the food is good. However, I have just waited almost 2 hours for my food. I called after 40 minutes of waiting and was told by a very polite woman that it was 10 minutes away, I called again 20 minutes later to be told that the delivery guy was in our area and our delivery was next, that the delivery guy did not speak any English! Another 20 minutes went by, another phone call to be told she was sorry and it would literally be 2 minutes! I told her I was not going to pay if the food was cold. When we finally got the food, another 10 minutes after my last call, it was lukewarm, the breads were stone cold! I asked the delivery man how come it took so long, he said it was the kitchen, "very busy"! I just feel that people should know this, don't order for delivery it's just not worth the wait, also really we were lied to by the lady on the phone! I won't be ordering from them again and suggest you don't too!

I'm kinda weak, so super spicy food isn't for me. Luckily, Brick Lane has a large selection of really tasty, yet mild dishes. The dopiaza (I usually do chicken) is to die for, as well as the butter masala, korma, and goan curry. Gotta get the bombay aloo, aloo gobi or sag aloo as a side. And I love their chapatis. We've always gone early in the evening, because we know it gets crazy busy later on. The staff is attentive and the decor is pleasant.

Pros: Great British-style Indian food

Cons: 2 main courses and a side with naan will run about $60

Read about this rest. while looking for some good spicy indian food and decided to give it a try. I was greatly dissapointed with 1) the food, 2) the service and 3) the decor. After the appetizer, we waited for nearly an HOUR for the dinner to arrive. I complained and the waiter did NOT even give me an update of the status. Instead they gave us 2 free drinks. Fine. When our food arrived - the goan chicken and a different type of curry dish, we were surprised in how lacking of flavor each of the dishes was. Minimal spice and no taste! Finally, the decor felt kind of "fake." I can say with certainty that I will not be returning to this place considering the large number of choices nearby. I also must comment that other patrons seemed to be very displeased with the service they were getting, so I am shocked to see the past positive reviews for this place. Perhaps a business owner "spamming" his/her own place.

Pros: none

Cons: long wait, poor service, bland food, poor decor

As a South Asian, I must admit that this is one of THE best Indian restaurants I've been to in a while, probably tied with Madras Mahal. The service is excellent, the food is fresh, and pricing is very reasonable for NYC. It's always hard for me to find an Indian restaurant that meets my expectations, and Brick Lane has certainly exceeded them:)

Pros: Cuisine, Variety, Service, Ambience

.

As a Portlander (Oregon) on vacation, I was determined to find some good Indian food because back home while you can get decent food, nothing compares like the Indian cuisine I had in London, until Brick Lane...
After getting lost, my husband and I finally made it (and we were really happy we decided not to ditch our reservation). My husband had the tandorri chicken (good though I'm not a big fan of this meal in general) while I had the tandorri chicken masala which was excellent, it had just the right amount of spice (medium). The mango lasse was delish and the sweetness was perfect with my meal. The garlic naan was light and tasty and by the end of our meal I was absolutely stuffed. Besides our table being very cramped and small, we had an excellent experience.

Pros: Food, service

Cons: cramped table

.

The prices here are a higher than most Indian places in the city, but the food distinguishes itself with unique flavors. Most Indian dishes I've had at other places tend to taste somewhat the same as each other, but each dish we ordered here tasted startlingly different than the next. Even the rice was delcious. The ingredients were clearly fresh and perfectly combined. The best aspect, for me, was that a few dishes were clearly labeled as vegan--a rarity for restaurants that serve meat. Be warned that the beers are not listed on the menu, but relayed by the waiter, and $8 a pint. This is the best Indian food I've ever had, so if you can afford it (our total for 4 people was around $100), you should certainly go there.

Pros: Nice London-y atmosphere, fantastic food

Cons: Price

I love Indian food, but I'm not a connoisseur by any means. A samosa, some sag paneer and I'm a happy girl. My finace on the other hand-- he's super picky about his Indian food. So when I say that he LOVED this place, please understand that it's high praise indeed! :) We went on a Sunday night, and we were seated promptly. The ambiance was great-- low-key lighting, some London-ish decorations. The service was prompt, and the presentation of the food was lovely. The prices were good, too. We had a very good dining experience here, and we WILL go back. When you go, we recommend the moilee with the grilled sea bass-- yum!

I actually went with Phoeneex (from previous post) to try this place out. All in all, the food was good -- the quality of the meat was definitely better than other places I've been to. However, the curry tasted the same to me. I did think this place was a bit pricey compared to other places. In addition, the food took forever to come considering the place was not at all packed. I was starving for quite awhile. The ambience was nice and the waiters were friendly. Was just OK.

My girlfriend had a craving for curry and wanted me to take her soemwhere where it would be spicy. Shes a fanantic when it comes to food being spicy, although she was too afraid to try the Vindaloo, she went with the Madras. She liked it cause with almost every curry dish you can have your choice of vegetarian, chicken, lamb, or tofu. I was going on the safe side and ordered the Tikka Masala (chicken) with an order of plain Naan. It was really flavorful and the rice was just delicious. My friend ordered the same thing and his girlfriend had a grilled chicken thing and Peshawari Naan. The Peshawari Naan was really good and the taste is something that lingers with you after you walk out. Overall it was a nice dining experience, the only reason I dont highly recommend it is because you wait too long for food and with some hungry people that can be a recipe for disaster.

Pros: Attentive, and good food

Cons: The wait for food seems like forever.

I wanted to try this place after having so long waiting to have curry like back in the UK. FINALLY!! It really is great food, so the prices are a little higher than the other restaurants on this strip but it really is worth it.
If you can get over the slight pretention from some of the staff then it is most definately worth checking out. We ordered a classic tikka masala and a jalfrezi, both exploding with great taste and more than enough to feed 2 of the biggest eaters!
I've lived away from the UK for 3 years now and this is definately a good taste of home.....

I loved the curry. I had the Lamb Vindaloo and it was really good! Very spicy as expected but it was very flavorful. The place has good ambiance and the service was good. Also, we had this dish that was spinach, almond, and chicken and it was very yummy. I would definitely pick thisplace over the popular Balucchi down the street.

I'm British, but I have lived here for 12 years and was looking forward to something to fill the gap in NY between the "gourmet" Indian food at Dawat and Utsav and the regulars on Indian Row. Brick Lane is almost there but just cannot seem to get it completely right. Of the four dishes we had, one was very good indeed (Goan curry) - one (lamb vindaloo) was overly sweet, and the lamb in the jalfrezi was inedibly tough - which was a matter of no interest to the staff. The concept is clearly very mock-London and this place will undoubtedly do well because of its gimmick "Phaal" and, to be fair, some well made dishes which are better than average on Indian Row. But if you want honest, well cooked, spicy Indian food, there are many better options in Manhattan - Brick Lane is one for the visitors and short-term expats. Some reviews claim it is better than the real Brick Lane. You have to wonder whether those writers have really been to the real thing....

Brick Lane catered our wedding in July and both the food and the service were fantastic. Our guests were raving and continue to rave about the food. Raj and Sati were incredibly helpful in assisting us as we chose the menu and throughout the process, they were responsive, proactive, upfront and understanding. We're not sure where some of these other reviews are coming from. We highly recommend Brick Lane - both their restaurant and their catering service.

This restaurant has the perfect setup and the worst execution. A good seating plan with uncomfortable chairs, a great menu that ends up in very poor dishes and very friendly staff -- if you can find anyone.

Brick Lane Curry House could have been a contender if it just took a look at itself in the mirror and had the courage to acknowledge what it saw.

I still recommend this for vegetarians. There is a plenty of food and if you can order it properly you can actually get out satisfied. Beware of the americanized giant cauliflower and zucchini pieces that seems to have become the de-facto standard of wannabe Indian "bistros" around town. The food is hot without being spicy. Chillies are used for a short-term goal without the concept of a flavor in mind.

curries spice and great authentic aroma from appetizer to entree. here you can have goat and panner as well. waiting time is a bit long during peak hours, so be prepare or reserve at opentable ahead of time. the atmosphere is very romantic and great for couples and small groups. soon i will try on the lunch buffet they have.

As a
cook that formerly worked in an Indian restaurant , I know a thing or two about the cuisine.

BLCH is a disaster with terrible food & service.
Ate there with four friends and all had the same reaction. Now the
details.....We started our evening with a
Tandoori Sizzler ($20.00). A few pieces of over cooked meat on
bed of tasteless vegetables. Prawn Balchao- Not bad, but still not
impressive. The Goat Bhuna had 0 meat and all bone. Lamb Biryani- A Classic-
This tasted like Rice a Roni cooked with
Cardamoms in a masala dark mud sauce. Goa Chicken did have a better taste
but the chicken was so over cooked I thought I was eating beach thongs.
Phaal- No balance in the spice blend, just
mirchi, ginger in a tomato goo.

Folks save your money ... It is over priced and not worth the $200 we spent.

I have been to Bricklane twice and both times have been great. The staff was very attentive and the food is out of this world. If you have any questions about any of the dishes, the staff is knowledgeable and can answer any questions or give recommendations. This place has got to be the best Indian food in New York. The ambience is inside is great for a group of friends or for a date. Definitely recommended.

Started my meal with the Shammi Kabob Appetizer. It's some best I've ever had. They come out on a steaming iron skillet. Taste so fresh and bursting with spice. My companion had the Goan Curry, very unique tasting. The corrinder and vinegar come alive in cococunut milk. I like to test my love of spice, so I got the Phaal Curry. It comes with a verbal warning, and if you finish it you will get a free beer (every last drop of the meat and masala). But its ridiculously hot, I ate all my meat, couldn't eat all the masala (even with raita and bread). The extreme spice definetely takes away from the flavor of the dish. Its is a dark brown curry. ONLY FOR THE SICKO SPICE PEOPLE TRUST ME. Our waitress, Jade, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. They also do a bunch of Chai Cocktails which looked interesting

Who is writing these rave reviews about this place ? I have been to bricklane twice and both times was left utterly disappointed, from flat beer to bad desserts, they seem to have no kind of control over the food, both times the food tasted different and spicy. I wouldnt go to this place ever again, the other cheaper resteraunts are much better.

I'm a big fan of Indian food but I'll not return to Brick Lane. The service and ambience were very nice. It's nicely decorated and has good music (not particularly Indian, however). Unfortunately, the food did not measure up. I had lamb vindaloo which was VERY spicy and that's ok but the meat wasn't properly cooked. It was tough and tasteless. Any of the restaurants on Lex between 25th and 30th are far superior. They don't have the ambience but if it's good food you want, don't go to Brick Lane. Even the beer was flat.

I was very excited to find an authentic english curry house in curry row in the east village. The food was a little spicy which was exciting as other resteraunts tend to spice it down to american levels. Food by far the best Ive eaten outside of England. Hope they open one up on the UWS.

I love to try new rest. but this place seems to lack in everything! The service was soo slooww. Once we were seated, it took a long time before we got our menu and at that time, it wasn't even at their peak hours! I wonder why all the craze for this place and about their food. The flavor were bland and there were nothing that seems to excite my taste buds! Worst of it, me and my friends were very dissapointed because it wasn't what we expected and we were totally ignored when we wanted refills for water. I would never recommend coming to this place ever again! There are lot's of other good indian food in other place but definitely not here!

i have been looking for the good old BUTTER CHICKEN from MOTI MAHAL in delhi, but? These guys have everything upto my expectations, but they should add BUTTER CHICKEN, Chicken Tikka Masala is OK, but BUTTER CHICKEN is the real thing. I'll be back hope they have it on the menu when i go back. Everything else was outstanding.

I've enjoyed very good curries at Dawat and Chola, and more recently at Banjara, and I've also tried many of the other 6th street and thirtieth street curry houses.

BUT, until I ate at Brick lane for the first time last year, Ihad never found an Indian resturant that consistantly combined the full flavor, heat, textures and freshness that make for great Indian food.
Brick Lane is simply the best Indian food I've had in this town!

One dish that I particularly like to share as a starter (although it its in the entree section of the menu) is the outstanding pudeena paneer which is grilled chunks of paneer cheese placed on sizzling, white wine-marinated onions, red peppers and cauliflower. Simple and delicious.

Pros: Outstanding food, excellent Indian beer

Cons: A little expensive

.

This resteraunt certainly seems to be on its way up, I was here 2 years ago when the place was small, but now a bigger better location. Fortunately the food hasent changed and is still some of the finest Indian I have ever sampled. This place certainly is doing things right. Will definately come here again.

Pros: Good Food, Good Music, Good Service

Brick Lane is exceptional, head and shoulders above all those other Indian restaurants in the neighborhood. The menu is varied and I have yet to eat something there that I didn't love. Service was excellent and there is a fun and relaxed atmosphere. A great value for your money...

This restaurant is a relief from the usual throng on 6th Street for those looking for more than a cheap dodgy curry. The bar is spacious and well suited for pre or post dinner drinks, the place is clean and the food is excellent. The service can vary although overall its been fine on my last couple of trips. Hopefully this will continue to improve and not distract from an otherwise excellent dining experience.

I've eaten here twice in recent months. The first time I called in a to-go order. They said it'd be ready in 20 minutes, and sure enough, it was. A few weeks after that I made the mistake of eating a meal in the restaurant. The comments everyone else has made are pretty accurate: it took nearly an hour for the entrees to arrive after we'd eaten our appetizers, and we certainly didn't get an apology for the delay.

I highly recommend the food, which is some of the best I've encountered outside of the real Brick Lane in London, where I used to live. Get it takeout, however.

Pros: Excellent food, nice decor, prompt takeout

.

The food was so tasty, the service was great, and every person we encountered was pleasant and fast. The ambience was very cool with colanders as wall lamp shades and neat lanters from the ceilings. Each dish was more than plenty and so good we tried to finish what we ordered, but ate until we were too full. I regret not having room for gulab jamin. Another time. Definitely would come back. Love the name too!

This Indian restaurant is a cut above the other 6th street establishments. Each of the dishes we had were great, but personal faves were the toor daal, chicken makhni and the naans. It's not for people with sensitive stomachs, but if you like spice and not all your dishes to taste the same, go here!

Who's writing these reviews? The service was the worst -- I waited 15 min before my dinner arrived even though my companion was already finished eating. I just moved here from London and its a disgrace to call this place an Indian Restaurant. The curry's were muddy, the appetizers greasy and cold... and the prices were expensive. SKIP IT!

if you're in the village remeber you have a choice.. i love trying new restaurants, but of course there is always that risk of dissapointment. the decor is beautiful, buts sincerely that is all it has to offer... after you taste the food, you can't help but feel you went somewhere else instead.

I often wonder if many of the positive comments are written by the owner! I think many of their problems are teething problems.. work on the service with a smile attitude, and serve food in a timely manner.. yes as I sat at the table waiting just under 1 HOUR for my food, i was quite tempted to step across the road for a quick snack. unfortunately the place is a little cramped and not somewhere where you would like to spend the whole night.

Brick Lane serves the best Indian food I have ever tasted in Manhattan. Come to think of it, I have never had better. The roasted eggplant dish is divine. Brick Lane's menu offered more variety than most Indian places including some lighter dishes and a few vegan entrées. Its a must go! The staff is friendly and attentive.

I've been to GOA about 5 times in the past year. It's one of the few places my girlfriend and I agree on. It's clean, great decor and good food. The service leaves something to be desired at times, depending on who's working but overall it's a good place to be.

Goa is clearly looking beyond the area's typical Indian restaurant, and when it opened that was reflected in the prices. They now have a 50% discount for parties of four and over, however, making it a phenomenal value. The food is delicious, without a doubt. The servers can be agonizingly slow and inattentive, but they're very pleasant - once you find them. Overall, much better than the street's Indian restaurants, less expensive, more food, and better quality than Baluchi's. I would definitely recommend it.

I came to Goa with a big group of my friends (12 of us) before going out for a birthday party. The birthday boy was really impressed with the place. He usually prefers Baluchi's and hates all of curry row, but now says Goa is a great option. The food is served very high quality, and not too greasy. SERVICE should be worked on a little however! Ambience excellent. I only wish I could afford the seafood dishes.

My boss asked me to select an Indian restaurant where we could take an important business associate to dinner. After reading the reviews I suggested Goa.. What an EMBARRASSMENT service was non existent. No greeting/smile, we had to request a menu to place an order, the meal was served sparingly and took a very long time to arrive, when it did finally arrive some dishes had cooled whilst others were piping hot, and to top it they made an error on the final check. Our clients were horrified and remarked "hope this is not a reflection on the way you intend to do business with us". We have since taken our clients to restaurants that take pride in serving their customers

I'm actually from the Indian state of Goa. So, accordingly, I came to Goa, expecting to taste my home. Sure enough, the dishes I tried were genuinely Goan. They also had some other dishes, which I'm not sure were Goan, but they were definitely delicious. Besides Brick Lane, this is the only restaraunt I eat at anymore on the street. Good value for the quality of food too. My college club now caters from Goa and the members love it.

It's no pain, no gain at this fiery Anglo-Indian restaurant (London's Brick Lane neighborhood is known for eateries featuring fare from the subcontinent). Among the seven types of curry on the menu is phaal, known for its tongue-paralyzing…
