Gives the real Brick Lane a bad name

In a wave of upscale Indian restaurants that have hit cheap and easy Indian food lane on Sixth Street, Brick Lane Curry House, with its warm decor and romantic setting, seemed like it would be a welcome addition. However, the food is much worse than its dumpy competitors on Sixth Street. The curries (Brick Lane's alleged specialty) lack the harmonious complexity of heat and spice. The food misses the mark completely. On a recent trip there, we had to send back a vegetable malai because it was just that bad. With the prices on the higher side of Sixth Street, there are plenty of other options, including Banjara right around the corner.

thanks brick lane, had a wonderful time there, I had been craving for the authentic, exotic curries which I don’t find in any of the Indian restaurant, but u guys really are good. Made me feel home away from home. Especially the lamb curry and tikka are delicious. I am definitely coming there for more and more and more. My taste buds can’t wait to get a bite of your delicious cuisines.

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)!
