I usually try to avoid Brick Lane at the weekends, as the queues tend to be too long, but we ended up going just before Christmas. Surprisingly we did not have to wait long to be seated and the service was great. As I usually can't decide when it comes to Indian food I ordered a Thali. The food was great (and a lot - so maybe worth sharing) and you can bring your own drinks. So all in all if your in the area a place to stop by for a nice curry.

Another good meal at Aladin. Heaving as usual on a Friday night but courteous service in any event. Food and plates were really hot and the curries were tasty and of reasonable size. As they are non licenced, the staff will even go to the neighbouring offie to pick you up your beer! Recommended.

Aladin on Brick Lane in London is a great find. We had 7:00 reservations and it was already packed. We were never rushed and encouraged to take our time. They offered advice on their menu and encouraged us towards certain dishes. It did not disappoint! We left stuffed and happy:) and it was light on the wallet!

Absolutely amazed with this authentic curry house! Booked a table of 40, we all sat together in a private lounge, the food and service was fast and very impressive to be honest. Also got a 20 percent discount for booking in advance! We will be back in Christmas with a larger number! Thanks Aladin

Simon S

Been here couple of times now and recommended others to try it and everyone has loved it so far. It's the only curry house that is always full. The service is a little chaotic but very attentive and they always help you pick out a dish if you tell them what you like. The mixed starters are really, really good and the chicken moducash is to die for. Being BYO (and you get a 20% discount at the off license just a few doors up) the whole thing is really reasonable and I can't wait to come back.

ledley k

I went to Aladin last night with my family. I actually had an amazing time, my family enjoyed it very much. The staff were very entertaining, the food... Yummy. BYOB was also a bonus. The whole experience was GREAT! Would definitely recommend it!

This place seems seriously popular - luckily, I booked on line as, although it was mid week and early (about 6.30, there were 15 or so people outside hoping for a seat.
Was it worth it?
Yes Yes Yes. The food was very good indeed, generous helpings, very well spiced - interesting rather than burning hot and different dishes tasted different (not always the case with Indian food). The waiters were helpful and the food arrived promptly, hot and in good time. Excellent choice!
