Nazrul, situated in the heart of Brick Lane, is truly a London legend. Opening its doors as one of the first curry houses on Brick Lane in 1979, this award-winning South Asian restaurant’s original purpose was to serve the large surrounding Bangladeshi community. Today, this eatery is beloved by Londoners of all walks of life. Situated in Shoreditch, its location is easily accessible by public transport, and it’s the ideal location for a bite to eat after perusing the nearby shops.
Featuring two large floors, there’s enough space at this Brick Lane Indian eatery to feed an army. Perfect for celebrations or gatherings, the staff at Nazrul pride themselves on the restaurant’s success, and that is apparent through their friendly and confident manner. Claiming to be the oldest restaurant in Brick Lane and the winners of the 2013 Brick Lane Master Chef competition, Nazrul asserts itself through the region not with aggression, but with a legendary reputation. Still not sure what all the hype’s about? Simply put, it’s the food. Although the service, ambience and location are great features, it’s the masterfully created Indian dishes that stand out above all. For starters, select from a variety of kebabs or take a hot bowl of mulligatawny soup. Decide between rogan dishes made with tomatoes and garlic, Ceylon delights made with a coconut milk base, or vindaloo specialties served spicy with potatoes. Think you can handle the heat? Then order any of the phall dishes. But be warned, these are the spiciest options on the menu. Because of its legendary status, it’s a good idea to book online with Quandoo for a table at Nazrul on Shoreditch’s Brick Lane.
It is the place that adds spice to your London visit. Very good food. Lovely and helpful staff and very, very reasonable prices considering how ridiculously expensive London has become. Well done to all and keep up the good work.
Great eating experience, having travelled from the Isle of Man, but being a Londoner was not disappointed, Great service and excellent food, will definitely return on our next trip. Kim
Amazing food, fast and friendly service. All the three curry houses next to each other are using the same menu which was in expected. But I still could not complain. A++++
