Meraz Restaurant reviews
Meraz is okay. It is the kind of place you should go with your mates rather than with your girlfriend or people you are trying to impress as it is quite basic. Meraz will do for a night out with the boys and a few beers.
Having been in London for almost 5 years I've been desperate for a decent curry and have sampled more places than I care to remember. Most restaurants suggest they offer authentic food and it really isn't. I'm pleased to find that this is exactly what Meraz offer!! As it was a first visit we just tried the simple chicken curry and a meat curry. These choices were made on the assumption that it would probably be a big cauldron that the staff would also dine from and therefore would be most authentic. It definitely was. Great flavours and perfect spice blend. The staff are lovely and the prices are bargain! Will definitely be working on eating my way through the whole menu so another visit is likely very soon!!
The only thing that would make Meraz Restaurant even better would be if they played like sports, apart from that every detail was spot on exactly how I like it.
I recommend the Lamb Shank, was exactly how I like and more. Good prices, I think the staff could have been a bit more talkative but it was a busy night. I would say that the Meraz Restaurant has charmed me back there.

The place was nice, food wasn’t exactly my thing but the wife loved it. Nice and warm as it was a cold evening. Would say if your passing through give it a try.
Meraz Restaurant is a lovely homely place with very kind staff who were friendly at all times. The food was really nice and to top the evening off I didn’t feel in the slightest pushed to leave once we had finished our meal. Will be returning very soon.
Food at Meraz Restaurant was brill all exactly how I like it!! Would defo recommended it to others!

Had a very warm welcome from the staff at Meraz Restaurant, food was lovely and was presented very well. I and my husband both enjoyed the evening a lot.
Love Indian food, so it was quite cool to try out some things that were more regional in the area rather than just your average korma. Give it a try!
Real range of things going on here. I don’t know many people who’ve had the lunch menu, but I tried it as I enjoy coming here on a Friday night. It was certainly a good taster of their food but I reckon their evening menu is much better.
Last week I cam here as I keep hearing the Meraz restaurant is a good place to try out. I think I agree with that assessment: everything was certainly good though nothing blew me away about the restaurant and I reckon its one of those places everyone should try at least once.
A friend took me here the other day for lunch and while I’ve never sampled their evening menu, their lunch options were pretty satisfactory. The food really filled me up and hit the spot – top notch!
The atmosphere at Meraz Restaurant is really nice and relaxed. I don’t like spicy food, but there was plenty on the menu for me to enjoy without that and I didn’t feel lame for picking something unadventurous!
Went here for my friends birthday party and I quite liked it. Not a massive fan of Indian cuisine, but the range of stuff on the menu kept everyone satisfied. Was a pretty relaxed night.
I come to Meraz Restaurant regularly (bit of a fan of Indian) and I would recommend it to anyone in the area looking for an affordable restaurant with good food. Quick service and polite staff.
I came to Meraz Restaurant for a date the other night and I have to say, it went pretty well. We were both fans of spicy food and the stuff on the menu was ideal for us and we were surprised by how friendly the staff were.
I have to be honest, while the food was ok and the staff were ok, it wasn’t as different as I had been lead to believe. Most of the stuff on the menu I could find at any old Indian restaurant. Would still come back here though as the food was still good.
I came to Meraz Restaurant the other day as I understood they did things a bit differently and I wasn’t disappointed. There were plenty of interesting new foods for me to try on the menu and some old traditional Indian foods too.
A very quirky restaurant with some great food options. I went with my family and we all have very different tastes, but their varied menu meant that we could satisfy the picky eaters with plain old Chicken Korma, the spicy lovers with the wide range of delicious hot foods and there was even plenty to satisfy the vegetarians – definitely a good place if you visiting with a group!
After reading all the below reviews we thought we'd give Meraz a go for ourselves. Yummy food and drinks and staff really are so nice!
Delicious food and welcoming staff. Thanks Meraz restaurant for a fab night! x
Came to Meraz on Brick Lane on a recommendation from a friend & I am now recommending it to other friends!
This is definitely one of my go-to Brick Lane spots. Definitely worth checking out if you're in need of a bit of spice!
Meraz was the second of three Indian restaurants I tried on Brick Lane and to be honest I didn't notice a huge amount of difference between any of them. Brick Lane is really busy, and the benefit of Meraz is that it's down the quieter end.
Found Meraz Restaurant after a day in Shoreditch and I am so glad I did. Initially I was drawn in by the Viewlondon recommendation sticker and they were so right to recommend Meraz Restaurant! It was awesome - next time I'm in the area I will definitely be eating here.
I got drawn in by the viewlondon sticker on the door. I am never sure how up to date those sort of things are but Meraz Restaurant really deserved the recommended sticker. Great food and drinks
You can easily walk past Meraz when stumbling along Brick lane after a few after work bevs. Actually I did and twice but when I eventually made it and hooked up with some work colleagues it was well worth the extra walk. It’s a really good curry house with all the mainstays.
I was recommended this place from a work colleague. Their website could do with a makeover and the menus don’t seem to be up to date but don’t let that put you off it’s a really good curry house. I know Brick lane has lots, and I have tried most, but Meraz is wonderfully informal and certainly up there with the others.
I treated the missus to a curry the other night. We found ourselves wandering brick lane and went to Meraz as it had a viewlondon recommended sticker on the door.

We went for a private party at Meraz on Brick lane last month. The restaurant isn’t massive but the food was very good. I am not a massive curry fan but if you want some authentic (well as authentic as you can get in this country) you should go and check the place out.
Meraz on Brick lane is a great Bangledeshi curry house. Its been around for decades and it shows as the service and food are very good. I have eaten there for lunch and dinner, the atmosphere is better in the evening but its still an excellent place to go.

I was always a bit snootie about Brick Lane. Having had dinner at the Meraz café the other day I am now a complete convert. We had a work lunch and the food and service were spot on. Highly recommended if you are in that part of town.
Never had this kind of food before, but i was impressed by it! One of the most unique tasting foods i've ever had, and i'd recommend it to anyone whose looking for something really new. The restaurant itself doesn't look like much from the outside, but is wonderful and cozy inside.

I actually quite liked Meraz Restaurant, which I found a bit of a surprise. It's down the quieter end of Brick Lane so perhaps it has to work a bit harder but whatever the reason is, the food's cleaner and fresher than most down this way. Ta for a lovely meal Meraz.
The city is close, and I have done to death spitalfield for lunch, I find this place online, stop by for the korai gosth, hit the spot! This place is on my list for a night time visit, at last a decent curry place just off the main Brick Lane strip
I arrived at Meraz with a group of work friends, and we were welcomed with open arms by the friendly staff. The food was reasonably priced and was a delightful blend of wholesome Indian cuisine and a great atmosphere. I will be back again in a hurry for some more delicious curry.

I came to Meraz Restaurant for a friends birthday meal, and was pleasantly surprised. There was a nice atmosphere and didn't try to hurry us out of there as it was quite a busy night. The food was good too, so all in all a very good night had.
What a great find! With often too much choice on brick lane its easy to settle for any restaurant, but Merez restaurant does some really good dishes. the only downside is, they dont serve alcohol, but as i found out, you can take your own :)
Alright this place has a pretty basic layout, but it's clean and airy which is obviously essential in any restaurant. Service was speedy, but a tad rushed.
I came here with the lads for a pre-night out meal. We werent disappointed, we left with our stomachs fully lined and the food was cooked to a good standard.
Suitable for those wanting a quick fix more than a long stay in a restaurant.
No fuss, no frills, Meraz restaurant doesn't look all that, but the food is delicious and next time I'm in Brick Lane I will almost certainly be hunting this place out again, like the ravenous food junkie I am.
