Venue says: "Come and enjoy all the favourites at our Brick Lane curry house until 1am every night!"

This Brick Lane curry house is one of the oldest going around these parts, having originally set up shop here back in 1963. It's a big spot, too, capable of catering to 200 hungry mouths.  

The menu is peppered with curry house crowd-pleasers – think butter chicken, lamb korma, masala dosa, vegetable dansak and prawn jalfrezi. Keep an eye out, though, for less well-known dishes such as lemon chana lamb or chicken khaiber - a dish of half a spring chicken cooked in the tandoor then served in a tomato and fresh garlic sauce.

And if you want to know how they cook them? Sign yourself up for one of their weekly cookery classes.

I took a couple of friends here about a year ago.  The food was very stale. I returned mine as it was very poorly prepared and cold.  There are also some serious food hygiene issues about this place, see what customers say on Tripadvisor. The toilets are filthy too.  Even by the very low standards of Brick Lane, this place is poor and best avoided.

Excellent food!!! When walking down the street and having 100 different people yelling for you to come in...it's hard to know where to go. This is a definite must!!! Walk on by the rest!

When I worked in the area I probably tried about 20 curry houses on Brick Lane (and got pretty fat in the process but hey ho). Preem is certainly one of the best. They won't haggle with you outside like most but you'll notice the prices are more reasonable than others and usually they will often give you a little something for free anyway. The staff are polite and quick, and the food is delicious. Poppadums are some of the best I've tried and their naan breads are great too. 


It may not be overflowing with people like some of its neighbours (who promise the earth with free bottles of wine and so on, but don't deliver a genuinely decent curry). At Preem you'll be seated right away and have a good, straightforward curry for less than £30 for two people including a drink each. 


The only downside is the decor is a bit lacklustre - but it's clean and tidy and at the end of the day - when you're drunk and going for a curry, that doesn't matter too much!

I went to Brick Lane with some friends on a Saturday night recently and we were overwhelmed with choice on where to go for a curry. There was someone outside every curry house trying to convince you to come to their restaurant and in the end we decided on Preem. Before going into the restaurant, we set a price with the server outside for a fixed meal. All of the food was great value and I would definitely go back.
