Best curry Brick Lane?
Brick Lane in London is famous for one thing – curry. Although with so many curry houses available in such a condensed area, avoiding the charms of the employed barkers trying to lure wary tourists through their doors, and knowing which ones actually serve the best curries, is quite an achievement.
So if you are planning a trip to Brick Lane to satisfy any ‘hot and spicy’ cravings, you may be grateful to read about five of the best Brick Lane Indian restaurants.
Situated at the south end of Brick Lane, Tayyabs is always bustling with people and life. Busy restaurants are usually busy for two reasons – they serve great food at reasonable prices. This is most certainly the situation at Tayyabs. Although because of Tayyab’ s deliciously authentic curries at extremely reasonable prices, booking in advance is now essential.
Café Spice Namaste
For a more upmarket curry house, Café Spice Namaste is a sensible choice. This celebrated Indian restaurant is headed by master chef Cyrus Todiwala, and has an extensive menu of contemporary and traditional dishes from North India, Goa, Kashmir and Hyderabad. With innovation being their hallmark, Café Spice Namaste certainly hasn’t been stuck in the ‘un-altered for years’ and ‘deeply average’ rut many of the curry houses in Brick Lane have.
With its warm hospitality, modern interior, delicious authentic food and its prime location at the gateway to Banglatown, it is hardly surprising that Brick Lane’s Clifton Restaurant is a popular choice for food critics, an Asian clientele and curry-lovers in general.
Having been commended by royalty, declared winner for The Best European Restaurant Awards 2010 and ranked on the BBC’s list of the ‘World’s Nest Curry Houses’, The Aladin on Brick Lane is worthy of visit, if not just to see for yourself whether it justifies all the hype.
Eastern Eye provides a truly romantic setting to dine on luscious contemporary and traditional Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. Its professional and friendly staff, a head chef with over 35 years experience cooking Bangladeshi and Indian masterpieces, and affordable prices, means Eastern Eye is one of Brick Lane’s most popular curry houses.
