Matt Rosemier Mark, since Helen and I live so close, we had decided when we first moved here to try all of the Curry Houses on Brick Lane. We got as far as the Standard Balti House and we haven't been to any other one since.
One doesn't keep looking for their keys after they find what they were looking for.
We have gone there dozens of times in the past four years, and have not even ONCE had a bad meal. We think of it as an asset as well, because when we have company, we know that we can take them to SBH and the food and service and price combined will be so good as to make us look like restaurant experts, and the best kind of hosts.
When you go, tell them Matt and Helen sent you and you'll get treated even better than normal (which is really good as it is).
Also, they do let you bring your own booze, but they don't like it, and you will get treated better if you order from the bar (they have cobra and decent wines).
