    Food was lovely as always. Considering the restaurant was very busy the service and food was spot on and cannot fault it. Would recommend.

    This place is an actual joke! 5 of us went for our work Christmas meal last Friday evening. Upon arrival we were 'greeted' by a man outside with a clipboard - he gave us no communication, looked grumpy and left us standing in the cold before finally saying we could go inside. Although we had a reservation, we were left standing for a while then eventually seated on the bench. There didn't appear to be any tables available or anyone communicating what was happening. All the men working there looked very stressed and very busy.

    One of the waiters said we needed to order at least 3 main meals and wouldn't accept what we wanted to order. The plates took ages to arrive and looked like they were washing as they go - I had to rub my plate a few times. Our meals took a lifetime to arrive and the whole experience was just very sub standard. I cannot believe the claims this place make. The waiters were very unprofessional and one of them was so animated it was unreal. My colleague said this one waiter was kicking off a bit downstairs.

    I felt like this was not a pleasurable experience and the 5 of us were squashed at a table in the corner. Certainly not 'The Best Curry House on Brick Lane'. Couldn't wait to leave.

    Terrible! ive been there a few times but this was the worst by far. Terrible bland food, and i was taken to a side restaurant, not even aladin that i booked! Very disappointed as this was my favourite. Now will have to find another one. :(

    What an absolute find. Probably one of the nicest Indians we have all eaten (8 of us dining) lots of choice and a good choice of chef specials. We thought it was a great idea to get a discount voucher to use in the off licence just up the street. The staff were very nice and helpful, we all had a lovely evening.

    Food was good, not the best curry that I ever had. Staff were friendly. I found the place to be pricey even with the 20 % off. they market it as a more budget place. we were three people and paid 75 pounds. ( 25 per head) . The food was good but not worth 25 pounds.
    sagg paneer was too sweet as well as the Kurma. It felt like they added sugar.

    Hope this helps!

    Lovely food. Very buzzy place (which could be very loud for some) but a testimony to an obviously popular place amid much choice. Recommend the @ Chicken Blast” which they won a major industry award for. And you can BYOB.
    Overall, enjoyable and recommended.
