I been living on Brick Lane for about 30 years now and funnily enough I don't normally like curry. However my friends from Asia came over for a visit and they really wanted a curry so they could compare it to the curries they get back home. So we decided to walk along brick lane centre of indian and Bangladeshi food to find a slap up curry. Eventually we came across Aladin. It was amazing. It totally made me love curry and I have decided to make it a monthly thing. The staffs especially Bodz and Manna were really welcoming and charming which made the vibe really fun. I would recommend the sizzling dishes as well as the chicken moducash, Thank you Aladin :)

As we were visiting the Truman Brewery, we thought we would have an Indian lunch in Aladin. We were not disappointed. The staff were very welcoming & seated us as quickly as possible as the restaurant was full. We only had to wait 5 minutes for a table & the staff were very attentive with our order. We had to wait a while for our food but when it arrived the aroma & taste was absolutely delicious! I have never tasted such a fresh and flavoursome chicken tikka masala and probably never will again unless I come back to Aladin - which, without doubt, I will!

Brick Lane was recommended to us for great Indian food but I choose Aladin Brick Lane based on other reviews. You never know what to expect but we loved it. The food was great and the service was great. Something for everyone from mild to really spicy.

We booked a table on line and had a quick confirmation response. We were 10 minutes late arriving but it was quite quiet at the time. The waiter was really nice and appropriately attentive. He noticed I was keen to wash my hands and without asking brought a hot towel so I didn't have to get up from the table. The poppadoms and pickles were nice and the food was really nicely presented and very tasty. The sag paneer bhaji was one of the best I've tasted with the cheese nice and soft rather than chewy. We all enjoyed our post Christmas family get together.

The BEST Curry House I have ever been too in Brick Lane...! Always 10 OUT OF 10.I recently took a group of 30 People for my Birthday and reserved the Private Party Room (which is known as the Executive Lounge). What a SPECTACULAR EVENING that was. The service was FANTASTIC as always and the Curry was MIND BLOWING!!!!!!!. Everyone enjoyed the evening and they are still talking about THE GORGEOUS CURRY. "ALADIN - WE ARE COMING BACK".

food was good and waiter attendance was excellent - ive given a lower rating on the basis a waiter dropped a hot lamb chop in my lap while dishing up (which happens) however did not offer any cloth or tissue to assist cleaning my trousers, left the chop on the floor while serving other tables and made no apology. I eventually had to ask a different waiter to remove the chop from the floor. Its a shame as the overall experience was good but attention to detail like this can damage your perception, plus I had taken guests from abroad in with e so didn't look good as I had recommended the resteraunt.

We had a lovely vegetarian starter and two mains from the chef's special. The king prawn one didn't taste that much of prawns, but the overall dish was lovely. It was our first time. I expected, from the reviews, even more tasty food, hence I am giving it 4. But I will return there, taste something else and review hopefully with 5 or 6 stars. A great bonus to have the 20% discount as we booked online. Overall, we were satisfied.

We go here regularly and they know us now. We always take a couple of bottles of wine, and are quite happy to let us sit until we've finished. We always go outside of the busy times though. The food is always good and the portions are very generous. We keep taking more and more people back and have never been disappointed.

Very friendly, efficient staff and service. Great value meal with a huge range of dishes of different prices and ability to make to your wishes with respect to making them a little hotter or milder. All the food tasted great, large portions!! Would certainly recommend this unlicensed restaurant on Brick Lane and will be visiting again. Prawn special (the most expensive one!) was delicious, huge and plentiful prawns and I added some extra heat....lovely!!

I went to Aladin with a group of friends and simply loved it. The curry is great, I loved the Tikka Masala and all my mates also enjoyed their dishes. The service was dazzling and the price was even better. Overal a fantastic place for good curry at a great price with the top level of service around that area...

Always a nice experience at Aladin Brick Lane, the food is really good. The waiting time for the food etc. could be a little shorter and my dish was a tiny little bit better the previous time, but overall, I can recommend the restaurant. :-)

The restaurant was in total chaos with the staff shouting at each other and the customers. The carpets were filthy and the tables/chairs/banisters were all sticky. We were unaware there is no drinks licence so we had to go to the nearest shop to buy some beer. We had tables in the basement and since there were 7 of us we had to eat at a table for only 6 people so we were very cramped. The food was good when it arrived but nothing special. A sizzling meal was brought out of the kitchen and the whole basement area was cloaked in smoke which was horrid. When we were leaving the waiter gave us a 'discount', then asked for a tip and blocked the stairs. The manager heard this and there was a huge row about the tip and they were shouting at each other which continued out in the street. By this time we just wanted to leave the place. Not somehwere we would go again.

Great staff, great food but the chicken was cold in 4 of our dishes (there was 20 of us eating that night) Ushered out of the door a little quick at the end but would defo recommend as they brought everyone's food out within 5 mins of each other - impressive! You also get 20% off wine and beer at their neighbouring off license! What a touch!

Absolutely amazing restaurant. One of the best in London! The atmosphere, food and service were brilliant. We visited on Sunday lunchtime, the restaurant was full, good that we booked in advance. The food was delicious especially the royal dish Chicken Tikka Blast! The service from Manna and Bodz were top class. Will definitely return again!

The food was really excellent. And the staff were friendly and willing to give advice regarding choices. We were a bit disappointed at the end as we were asked twice in less than 5 minutes to finish our drinks as the next booking was there. We had pre-booked our table and hadn't even been there for the 2 hours you would expect a booking to cover.

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.

Very friendly place with great service. Nice ambience. Opened door for us, pushed our chairs in etc. Food was really nice and was brought out quickly. Food was cheap. Bring your own alcohol as well. The off-licence nearby gives 20% Off if you eat there.

We visited Aladin last night and had a truly amazing meal! The portions were massive - we should have shared. The staff were friendly and efficient and the restaurant had a really comfortable buzz about it. We will be returning - thank you!

The food is great and reasonably priced and the service is quick. I have found, however, that the waiters can be a little pushy when ordering and try to drive you towards choosing the more expensive dishes. Other than that, I'd recommend it.

The service was very friendly, hopelessly confused & incompetent but so friendly that it was easy to forgive. The toilets were mildly dirty and no-one appeared interested to clean them. The food was very tasty and for London, reasonably priced. (Although we did not actually get the food we had ordered, even though we repeated the order about five times to two different waiters).

Yummy food and great service. And liked that they didn't have people on the street begging you to come into their restaurant. Only negative - we asked for a taxi and the restaurant hooked us up with a driver that wasn't great and got lost taking us back to the hotel.

Really good curry, we had the house special award winning chicken tikka blast and it was very good. I didn't realise the restaurant was not licensed so take your own drink but the staff are happy to send a runner to a nearby shop for you if you forget.

Got 40% off as we booked and were seated between 4&6pm (says that on their website) and the food was superb. Friendly, attentive waiters too which is something u don't always find in Brick Lane. Well worth a visit.

Excellent food and service--we have already made plans to visit again with friends. The food is genuine (we've lived in that part of the world and are picky) and they can fire up the spiciness if you want--really good!

Delicious food, great service, loud atmosphere but makes for a very "Brick Lane" experience. Despite having tried a number of other curry houses on and off Brick Lane, I keep coming back to this one. Would highly recommend Aladin!

Been twice in last month. Food excellent, busy & nice atmosphere. Adding service is fine, but would be good to see an entry on the bill so it adds up. Aladin is BYO so remember your booze if liked from next door offy.

The food was delicious, we did have to wait quite a while but it was understandable as it was very busy. We were then kicked off our table quite promptly after we had finished as they had lots of people waiting. Overall the food was good and the staff were very friendly.

Great food - one of the best - and thoroughly deserving of all the awards. But have scored it down because we were in a party of 10 and the wait for food was a little past acceptable, even for a Saturday evening. I would definitely return, but only with smaller groups.

Very busy and hectic but added to the atmosphere, when we arrived they tried to sit 6 of us on a table for no more that 4 but was eventually given an extra table. Food was very good, would definitely return.

Food good, not outstanding, had better from my local takeaway and I don't have to wait 45 minutes for it. Beware of the popadums that they bring to the table whilst you wait, normally given free in every Indian restaurant I've eaten in but they charge you for this here but don't tell you. Asked for tap water and was also charged for that which again is unheard of and is appalling. Would I return? Definitely not, would I recommended this restaurant? No, unless it's to someone from trading standards.

Didn't actually get to go into aladin even though we booked and had to sit in a different sister resturant which needed a little TLC. Also had to request for 20% off as they didn't put it on the bill automatically. Food was good though.
