    Lively and friendly. One of the better restaurants in Brick Lane

    Extremely disappointed. The chef's special "Fish blast" for £15 - £18 was just a terribly sweet tikka masala sauce - far too sweet (my friend had the standard chicken tikka masala). The pilau rice and onion rice tasted like a cheap own brand microwave packet rice a student would throw out. Overall, several currys tasted like my friend's chicken tikka masala, whether fish or meat and the sag aloo, dhal and panneer/spinach tasted horrible (boat load of salt). Overall - overpriced rubbish. 8 out of 8 of us didn't finish our meals.

    My partner and I have dined at Nazrul on numerous occasions and had nothing but good experiences.

    Unfortunately when we took friends there Saturday 15 July we had a very unenjoyable time.

    Despite booking we ended up in the stuffy downstairs room where the staff were reluctant to turn on the air conditioning despite the fact more and more people were being crammed in down there. Very uncomfortable and it was a relief to finish and get outside.

    The was a rowdy table of 10 who kept singing and being generally rude and disruptive to everyone else. We mentioned it a couple of times but the staff didn't seem overly concerned.

    They seemed short staffed and the service was brusque without the usual banter. We had to ask for the bill repeatedly, had to ask for the complimentary chocolates of which two were so inedible due to being melted and had to ask for the towelettes to clean our hands.

    A table upstairs spilt their beer which dripped down onto where we were sitting staining a jacket. When we complained to what turned out to be the assistant manager he rudely brushed us off and said it wasn't his problem. No one bothered to clean the mess off the seat.

    The branch supervisor did come to the rescue and apologise and offer to take the dry cleaning cost off the bill which was appreciated.

    The food was superb but we took the majority of it home for takeaway as we didn't have much of an appetite with all of the above.

    Disappointing!

    We will go back once more but not on a Saturday and not downstairs.

    Very helpful and friendly and the food was ok - some ingredients could have been of better quality or fresh. Found the chicken tikka tasted like chicken had been frozen. The offer of 20% and BYO alcohol was very good - can't complain about that

    Good food and good service

    Fantastic food!! The Chicken Tikka Blast is so tasty! Just remember that there isn't an alcohol licence so bring your own!!

    Great meal, service, and overall time

  • ((*** 11 July 2017 by Carl Turner from Huddersfield

    Absolutely no point whatsoever booking online with whatever discount offered on the website eg the 20% of total meal cost / BYO - it's a busy place and hyped up. So as you're walking towards Aladin, expect to hear ''come to our sister restaurant', didn't fall for that one! Sadly I wouldn't recommend it being the great Indian meal experience that it's made out to be. The quality of meal was good, above average, but service was dire - too busy vs nos of staff.
