The Famous Curry Bazaar reviews

By G.

Dunno if The Famous Curry Bazaar is really famous – not even down this street, but it’s a pretty decent spot for some Indian tucker. Famous Curry Bazaar has loads of choice too – lots of stuff to try on the menu – especially for veggies.

Came to this restaurant as a deal with the jack the ripper tour. It was a very good deal so i purchased it for me and my girlfriend. We was sat near the window so we saw the whole atmosphere outside where they persuade you to come in. We ordered a chicken pakora and vegetable somosa which was very good. For the mains we ordered a chicken tikka masala and a Lamb shatkora which was amazing. No complaints at all. Would recommend

By Karina H.

One of the best restaurants in brick lane. They don't push you out like others. Was sat for two hours without any complaints. Food was great. Chef of the year award dragged us in. x

By Ander G.

Came to this restaurant after a recommendation from a close friend. I was not disappointed at all. The food was amazing as well as the excellent service we received. Value was normal we also got a free shot at the end. Amazing welcoming place

By Lauren B.

Fine indian dining. Lovely decor and atmosphere, waiters are very friendly and not too pushy. Food was tasty would recommend the Garlic Chilli Chicken if your a spice fan. thumbs up

By Jenny W.

A stroll down Brick Lane is amazing, we all love the vibe. Unfortunately our best bar closed down so had to go straight in for a curry. We came across The Famous Curry Bazaar, we got offered a deal for £15 per head including a drink so thought why not. Service was attentive and food was exceptional. After the meal the staff recommend a bar down the road which was good as well. so overall a great night.

By Joseph K.

Great curry house, managed to get a free drink and 20% off. Good value for money paid £60 between four. Delicious food with kind service.

By J D.

Great food and drink at a reasonable price. I popped in on the off chance, was only on my own and had about 45 minutes to spare. Was well looked after by the staff and would be more than happy to return next time I fancy a curry.

By Bernard S.

Had a fantastic meal here last Friday. We just popped in and had some time in between meetings with a colleague and she had never eaten on Brick Lane before. The food was really tasty and good portion sizes. We had a starter, main and drinks and came in at just over £20 each. We both agreed it was good value for the quality and quantity of the food. Glad I tried this place and now have a great place to visit if i'm ever on Brick Lane.

By Rosie A.

Lovely restaurant with nice decor, friendly staff and not to pushy. food was tasty and traditional. one of the oldest in brick lane

By Alana A.

My friends and I have just dined at this restaurant last night and we are already planning to go back there!! The food is amazing, the service outstanding with very friendly and outgoing staff, and the ambience comfortable and relaxing. Between us we tried lamb, chicken, prawn, and vegetable dishes and each dish was unique, well-prepared and delicious! We also had starters, rice, and naan bread...wonderful! I highly recommend it as a must-dine-in restaurant...whatever dish you choose, you're going to enjoy it for sure!

By Leane C.

After reading some of the bad points about this restaurant, i must say you have to check it out yourself without reading. I can tell how good a restaurant is just by looking at the ladies room. I was certainly amazed by it since it was in brick lane. The food and service was of top quality.

By Curry B.

First of all I would like to thank you for your review, just a quick reply, can I kindly ask you to visit us again and we will make sure you have a better experience, my table clothes are never dirty and funnily you only have one review on viewlondon. Hope you are not one of my competitors as you have wasted your time trying to scare customers away. Thanks

By Bale S.

Last monday our group of 6 dined at this restaurant after we saw pictures of famous people dining here displayed on the window. We thought if its good for them it must be good for us. How wrong we were. Living local we have experienced the food at most restaurants. This one diffenetly bottoms the list. Prices are extortionate. Portions are small. Ambience and atmosphere is dull. Chairs are coming off. Table cloths were dirty and smelly. Glasses were stained. Even the plate we were served on had to be returned because they had marks on them. With so much competition around these guys need to fix up before they start serving. It is a shame as it spoilt the evening. Never again shall I return.

By Jane L.

The food was excellent and the service was very good as well. The waitress was very friendly. The portions are very generous. I would recommend going for a meal there and i will be going back

By Stephanie D.

The Famous Curry Bazaar never fails to impress.we are so lucky to work within a few hundred meters of the best quick curry house in London. keep up the good work fellas

By Alastair W.

Spot on, no complaints. it wasn't busy at first but got jammed packed after a bit, buzzing atmosphere. the young waiters were perfect especially the boss. definitely recommend

By Curry B.

Many thanks for the positive feedback, we are really happy that you enjoyed your food and service. We are very sorry for the disappointing ones, we promise a better experience next time

By Darren E.

Fantastic little Indian restaurant, a lot of competition in the area but definitely worth checking out, great food, very friendly service, would definitely recommend to anyone.

By Andrew J.

Great food, big portions! We had the Indian style fish and chips and the 'masala chicken' both of which were really nice, and supersize. I'd recommend this restaurant, its perfect if you want a traditional curry but there are also lots of interesting Indian inspired dishes on the menu

By Sophie B.

Fantastic! They really made my boyfriend's birthday dinner special! Would go there again, most definitely! Many thanks

By Joe O.

I went to The Curry Bazaar on Friday with my partner for the first time. We were greeted and seated quickly and our waiter was extremely polite. The food was superb. We were impressed by the unique Indian Art on the wall, especially the Bengal tiger. We enjoyed a tandoori mixed grill with garlic naan and a Meat Thali. We drank cobra beer and some Poppadoms. I would definitely return to this restaurant and recommend it highly.

By Hanna L.

As always The Famous Curry Bazaar deliver excellent food and service. Haven't been in a while so interesting to see the renovations. Music a bit too loud for conversation but not enough to hamper general enjoyment of evening.

By Pauline C.

I went to The Famous Curry Bazaar on Brick lane with my boyfriend, parents, sister and her boyfriend (all of whom seasoned curry eaters!!!). We had a lovely evening, the waiters were friendly and funny, we were able to take our own alcohol and really enjoyed our meals. My sisters boyfriend took on the challenge of eating a Phal and was proud of his achievement when he finally finished! The milder curry's were also lovely and were packed with flavour. Would go again for the quality of food

By Claire H.

Totally disapointed with service & food. Ordered 2 poppadums, given 6, ate 3 but charged for all 6. As they were only 60p we didnt complain but the waiter should listen to customer orders. Had to ask the waiter to take our order (think they wanted to drag it out so we spent more on drinks) and then would not be given new cutlery for the main. Food was bland, plain and dull. My veg bhuna was more like a veg stew (not even mild, just tasteless), my partners madras was verging on medium (by no means hot) but gave him an upset tummy and our friends jalfrezi was aptly renamed 'fisher price jalfrezi' as it was not hot, possibly could be called medium but would be suitable for a toddler entering into the world of Indian food. Very upset as our friend doesn’t visit London and we are all huge Indian food fans. This place did not deliver on any aspect of the dining out experience.

By Callum B.

We attended The Famous Curry Bazaar in Brick Lane for a client dinner. We was not dissapointed with the food, extremely tasty, & a fabulous choice. Is on my list of restaurants to return to.

By Curry B.

Hi there Edgar, I would like to say sorry on behalf of the waiters. This is the first time we heard the waiters refusing cutlery. Hope you come back and we promise you better food and service. Many thanks.

By Denise B.

The Famous Curry Bazaar was amazing! First time there and i will be returning shortly! The king prawn butterfly starter was delicious as was the main i had, which was just chicken tikka masala, but it was amazing. The service was also very good! Excellent!

By Curry B.

Thanks you positive feedback, we hope you visit again. And really sorry about the negative ones. We guarantee you better food and service next time you visit. Many thanks.

By Sarah B.

Really nice place to dine. The traditional style of the place makes you feel comfortable. Service was quick and polite. lovely food x

By Simon C.

very nice traditional restaurant, went there because of the reviews, great food, busy atmosphere, good value will definately recommend.

By Emma H.

I went to the curry house because of the reviews on here and I would say it is very average not any more than 3 star, the staff are ok and we were given a free drink but it really is nothing special I could have gone to any number of the curry houses and had the same experience. My friends enjoyed their food but said the same nothing to rave about. However the place was buzzing and did have a nice atmosphere and clean toilets (I judge a place by the loo). I will never go in a curry house if it isn't busy and I have to say it was busy and the service was quick we didnt wait long for our food. I would say if your not too fussy about the taste being perfect but want atmosphere than go but if you want excellent food then don't.

By Mike T.

Great place for a family dinner. Very nice and traditional, the caller outside was very kind and did not stand in our way, just welcomed us in front of the door. Saw Peter Sissons picture on the window so I dragged my wife and cousins in, delicious food, great atmosphere, lovely service and the price was excellent unlike some curry houses. Would definitely recommend, will be back soon.

By Alex D.

Food 9/10 Service 10/10 All in 1 package busy for a Monday night.would Definitely recommend. Would book in advance to avoid disappointment. I saw a person trying a meat Thali looked really nice going to try it next time

By Carlos A.

By David J.

well where should i start.

By Eleanor M.

This review must be written by the restaurant's staff!! Don't believe a word of it!

When we went to the Famous Curry Bazaar we had the worst curry experience we have ever had. The vegetable pakoras were deep fried breadcrumbed croquettes, blatantly not made on the premises and with zero spicing.

The chicken tikka masala had so much desicated coconut in it it was sweet and tasted like a bounty! The chicken ureebisi was so salty it was practically inedible.

If the "chef" has had any training, or even cooked at all before taking up the post, I would be very surprised!!

By Tobi Y.

I would have given them no stars if the option was available. The famous or shall I say (infamous) Curry Bazaar gave me my worst dining experience ever.

The mains took over an hour and a half to arrive and when it eventually came, the orders were wrong.

To make matters worse, Mr Waiter man attempted to lie to us about the dish and returned with the same plate of food but branded it with a different name.

There is no way I can trust these guys, if their waiting staff can casually lie about their dishes in the faces of their customers, then god knows what they try to get away behind closed doors in the kitchen?

Other members of the waiting staff were rude in their fabricated explanation of the situation and simply did not know when to give up their lost cause.. one of them was looking at his phone when he tried to come up with a semi apologetic explanation.

It really makes me think how much pride this restaurant puts into their work, or whether I should have been angry at the waiter or simply pity him for their lack of ethics or respect to a) their professionalism b) their customers and c) themselves.

It was almost 11pm when the lied about mains were served, I can't imagine any diners to be satisfied with that.

There were no options but to walk out. I write in the hope that anybody who reads this review will not commit the error to eating at the Famous Curry Bazaar.
