Decent Food at High Prices
By brooklyn_girl on 8/5/2007
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.
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
"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.

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.

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!
all my indian favorites on one menu!

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!
Stick with the actual street in East London!

As I have said before in other votes, as an "Englishman in New York", I find the (otherwise excellent) array of eating guides in New York to be terribly out of kilter when it comes to Indian food. Brick Lane is deeply mediocre and over-priced; in fact it's an insult to the wonderful street in East London with its half-mile of mouth-watering Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi restaurants. The main courses suffer the same problems experienced in other New York Indian eateries, whereby the marinating sauce is non- specific and full of unsubtle spicing. This was only an adequate meal at a so-called "very good to excellent restaurant". Come on ... there must be better places out there (try the uptown Tamarind on Amsterdam Ave between 80/81, not to be confused with the downtown one)!
