The name Brick Lane is synonymous with curry and the area certainly has no shortage of Indian restaurants, but The Famous Moonlight is a name that stands out from the rest, serving up time-tested favourites in a homely and unpretentious setting. Whet your appetite with a bowl of some spicy mulligatawny soup or the chicken chaat, before tucking into a traditional curry. No matter if you like it hot and spicy, or prefer something milder, you’ll find plenty of options on the extensive menu. Some of our favourites include the murghi methi masala, garlic chilli king prawn, chicken korma, and the veggie-friendly begun tomato jhool (aubergine and tomato baked in the tandoor with special herbs, spices and fresh garlic). To guarantee a table at The Famous Moonlight on London’s famous Brick Lane in Whitechapel, booking ahead is recommended.
