99 Second Ave., New York, NY, 10003
nr. 6th St.
all my indian favorites on one menu!
By foodistolife on 6/21/2004
Finally an indian place to put to rest the myth that all restaurants on 6th st share the same kitchen. A stylish restaurant with great and carefully prepared food, where you can order all the variations of favorites at prices that are far below the gourmet indian spots uptown, and in my opionion, better for the bang of flavor!

I have dined here twice in the past two months and both times I had a great experience. The staff was very helpful as I am pretty new to Indian cuisine and the food was absolutely amazing. They were very accomodating with my questions related to food allergies that I have, and this was much appreciated. Check it out... you won't be disappointed!

Great, non-oily food, and nice decor reminiscent of the Indian places in the UK. Saag Paneer and surprisingly non-oily samosas are highly recommended. Service could be a little more prompt, but the staff is very considerate and friendly.
"Could you please hurry up and leave? We have people waiting for this table!"

This, after only moments ago the check was paid, along with a nice tip, by the way! The service was the most horrible and disrespectful I've ever experienced. The food is OK, not GREAT! And the service sucks! I would never eat there again! It gives the original street a bad name.
Can go there once.

We ordered Dal Makhani, Milai Kofta, griller paneer, naan and the hotest dice (forgot the name). DO NOT ORDER that hot curry. Its a waste of money. As rightly described in the menu, its just pain and sweat and no taste. Milai Kofta was good. Dal Makhani was o.k. The naan (bread) was pretty big. Since they also give rice with currys, I think 1 naan or else is enough for 1 person. Service was nice but one thing I didn't like was that they automatically added 20% tip in the bill. We were party of 5. They may have put that in the menu but I didn't see it. Now I consider 15% to be average and anything above that to be generous. Why would restaurants think that the customers really liked them and would tip them generously. Overall I will give them 6.0 in a scale of 10.0
Decent Food at High Prices

Service was fine, food was good, but $17 for a plate of chicken tikka masala and rice? No WAY would I go back there and pay that much again. My local delivery joint in Bklyn has food just as good as this. Too bad about the poor value, I enjoyed myself until the bill came.

I ordered the stuffed calamari as an entree (18 dollars) with rice and a garlic naan for delivery. It took one hour and twenty minutes and was cold when it arrived. I was given three calamari stuffed with more calamari off-cuts in a bland brown goo (a poor portion for an entree). The calamari were tasteless and the stuffing contained absolutely no depth of flavour and was actually rather disgusting. All in all, the entree was a huge disappointment. The rice tasted like Uncle Ben's. The naan would have been fine if it had been vaguely warm. Two dips accompanied my rice/naan: one mild creamy sauce which had obviously been poured straight out of a supermarket jar and was sickly rich, the other a watery joghurt. As I had feared, twenty minutes after eating this bilge my stomach started to churn (no doubt the brown calamari off-cut goo) and I spent much of the rest of the night in the loo.
The Brick Lane Curry House is Authentic UK Style Curry
By riteshpatel on 4/5/2008
The Bricklane Curry House is probably the best British Style Curry House in NYC. The food is very authentic and tremendously well done. Fresh ingredients, well prepared and delicious. Staples such as Onion Bhajis compliment others like Stuffed Calamari and the house special Lasanu Gobi which is succulent. The spicy dishes like the Vindaloo and the world famous Phal are as fiery as they should be.
