London is a one of the world’s great locations for those seeking the spices and flavours of the Indian subcontinent, and in the Bangladeshi heartlands of Shoreditch and Whitechapel, The Famous Curry Bazaar is as good a choice as any on Brick Lane. They serve up a huge selection of authentic Bangladeshi specialities, as well as dishes from Pakistan and India. Some will be well known to most British diners, whereas others are less celebrated – though no less tasty – and will be new to even the most dedicated curry fans.

Brick Lane is at the heart of the Bangladeshi community of East London, and about half way up it – equidistant between Shoreditch High Street overground to the north and Aldgate East in Whitechapel to the south – lies The Famous Curry Bazaar, a restaurant that makes the most of the favoured cuisine of the local area. Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Indian food is big on spices, herbs and fresh ingredients, and their menu is designed to make the most them.
The house specials at The Famous Curry Bazaar are built to show off the best of Bangladeshi cuisine. They use shatkora, a green fruit native to the Sylhet region of Bangladesh, and ureebisi, the seeds of Bangladeshi runner beans, as well as plentiful fish curries that display the importance of the sea and the rivers of the Bengal delta to the cuisine. Add to this the usual Indian curry favourites – jalferezi, bhuna, korma, the works – and a huge range of dishes out of the tandoor, and you have a full Brick Lane feast. Book a table now and head down to Whitechapel in East London.
