Had fun taking friends to Brick Lane Curry house. Staff was super friendly and welcoming, would recommend this place. Managed to survive Phaal Challenge.

Too much like a cafeteria; lacked ambiance. Too much light.
No substitutions were available, which is important.
Food was way too spicy. If you shun rice, you’re out of luck.
Portions were decent. No okra veg dish available, which was disappointing. Expensive for Indian.

Informal and friendly -- enjoyed our table by the window. Excellent tandoori and curry (Goan). Perfect for dinner before a show at LaMama around the corner.

Food was good not great. Flavor profiles from seasoning was where they should be but the meat was not right. Chicken Biriyani use boneless cubed white meat which was dry. The Raita helped a lot and enhanced the dish. Lamb in the curry was a little tough (not braised long enough at low temp)and dry also as the cut used was leg/butt not shoulder or shank. The cauliflower Gobi appetizer was very good. Service was fine but kitchen seemed slow. Was not busy when we went

This was a great restaurant. Service was good and the waiters were very nice. Our waiter recommended some dishes since my sister and I were undecided. I love it when waiters do that!

It had just moved one block south to its new location and Open Table didn't have the correct address (79 Second Ave.) but it was great food, pleasant decor and atmosphere and friendly staff. Perfect pre-theater for LaMama or NYTW

It was good, I just wished they opened on time because my guests and I were waiting (we weren’t sure if the restaurant was even open). But the food was great!

Absolutely awful. Had a very surly waitress, who felt like she was doing us a favor. I was sooooo excited about going because I’m from England & am familiar with Brick Lane. The meal was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. Will not go back or refer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our curry dishes. There was a great selection and the portions were great for the price. It was perfect for Pre-theater dinner when attending New York Theater Workshop productions!

We were looking for a good Indian restaurant with creative cuisine using traditional spices, etc. This was not it. The dishes were drowning in tomato based sauce and the spices were Indistinguishable. A drunken patron at the bar was loud and obnoxious, and was allowed to stay (and continue to drink) even though he was disruptive to other diners. We were forced to make a late reservation because availability, but upon arrival 15 minutes early found the restaurant mostly empty.

This was our first time at this restaurant. I ordered a curry dish and my friend ordered the Gobi dish. We both had brown rice. The food was delicious, the service was very good and we will definitely return when we're next in the neighborhood.

Service/waiter was disinterested. I paid $50 for average food and service that was non-existent. I wasn't expecting authentic Indian cuisine, but, a bit of effort would have been nice. And then of course I felt forced to leave a tip because I didn't want to come across as rude.

The cheap $4 pizza would have been a better choice.

We have been wanting to visit here for a long time.
The food and service were top notch. Honestly the best Indian curries that we have had. We also tried the phall! We didn't do the challenge but just ordered one for the table. It was hot as blazes but worth a try . Can't wait to dine here again.

Went here on Xmas Eve. Seemed a little out of the way as a tourist staying in midtown... but was well worth the journey. Greeted cordially and given nice table. Menu contained nice variety of indian dishes. Against the advice of the staff, I opted for the infamous Phaal curry; both my wife and I are BIG curry buffs, and typically find it very hard to get our food served spicy enough. The Phaal is HOT. It beat me hands down. Had to stop about half way through, and settle my mouth with raita. Ordered a spicy madras afterward, which was delicious, though clearly not in the same league as the Phaal. In all we had 3 dishes; 2 with lamb which was beautifully cooked. We also ordered a paneer kulcha which was delicious, and had abundant paneer.
Staff were extremely attentive, and as a delightful surprise, they brought us a dessert to share as an anniversary gift (on the house). Highly recommend this place. Would advise against the Phaal.

We had a fantastic dinner -- we tried so many different dishes and one was better than the next. We picked this restaurant based on other OpenTable recommendations. We enjoyed Potato Samosa, Onion Kulcha, Garlic Naan, Chicken Tikka, Saag Paneer (best I think I've ever had!), Aloo Gobi, and Chicken Korma. We only had leftovers because we overordered for three people -- the leftovers were delicious! We will definitely be back again soon.
