Brick Lane is a hip Indian eatery bringing the lighter, fresher side of Indian cuisine to Sydney. Experimental in its approach, the dishes at Brick Lane are inspired by India but dished up with a modern, inventive twist. Make sure you check out the drinks list too, where you’ll find killer cocktails, specialty gin & tonics and an extensive wine list. Nestled in an old terrace house with exposed brick walls and lit by the warm tones of red neon, the atmosphere is casual and easy going with a focus on quick friendly service, good tunes and fun times.

Food was very tasty. Good value.

Service was friendly and very helpful.

Ambience is is really very good and adds to the food experience.

My only issue is the volume of the "back ground" music. While it is good music and suits the "underground" ambience mood being set, it is a bit loud.

Makes talking to partners and friends become a shouting match.

The issue I find here is the noise level is high but the management can’t exactly do anything about that with everyone having fun. You just can’t talk to your partner very easily

This is a great place for dinner with a group of friends especially with their set menu - the prices including drinks is great value when dining with a group. Although we didn't try the set menu since there was only 2 of us but the food was exceptional. It came out reasonably quickly but gave you enough time between courses to chat and drink - even though the place was extremely busy for a Friday evening - we never felt rushed. A few of the standout dishes included the duck and pumpkin small bites and the pork curry - its a dry curry best enjoyed with the roti and really delicious. The service was friendly and efficient considering the place was fully booked and there were several large groups to cater too. Definitely recommend and looking to coming back to try other dishes.

They say that they have modernised Indian food but seemed to me that that the chef think Indian food means adding a pot load of red chillies.. don’t try this if you want it to burn the next day!!

For an all you can drink feast we went in with low expectations, as is often the case. However we were pleasantly surprised! The service was really good, our drinks were topped up throughout the night (we were there from 845-10pm) and the food was great, we left with no spare room in our tummies. Would recommend to friends. Thanks again Brick Lane!!!

Pros: Great staff, with friendly service. All entrees delicious & really good lactose free options. Fantastic value, the bottomless drinks were offered and served efficiently. The selection of entree dishes was pleasingly varied and tasty.
Cons: Cocktails in $60 menu very poor quality & replacement for shellfish allergy very disappointing. Main dishes very ordinary as were the desserts.
Overall: Totally value for money.

Good ambience, great service!
Authentic, yet with a twist Indian cuisine served with Tiger beer!
Kudos to the team!

Maybe more options on the Big Eat section in the set menu would be fantastic though.

Had a wonderful time. Funky place with a lively atmosphere. Great value for money- the food and drinks kept coming and were delicious.
Was quite loud so hard to hear the table so if you’re looking for intimate conversation perhaps not the place but overall it didn’t detract from the experience. Have already been recommending to others!

The food was nice, although you don't get huge servings. The $50 package doesn't give a heap of food but they do at keep your drinks flowing. We were however quite rudely rushed out of there so it's that final minute that ruined the whole experience.

We had dinner at Brick lane last Friday and we loved the experience. We chose the $50 set menu option. The starters and the mains were very tasty and the unlimited drinks were a bonus. They very kindly provided my partner with a separate vegan option for the main at no additional cost though it was supposed to be a shared dish. The service too was very friendly and prompt. We will definitely visit again.

The guys here are lovely - i made a seating request over email the week before my booking and they remembered and accommodated it. They were attentive and the food was great. We had the $60 feast menu which was unbelievable value and our waitress kept our drinks topped up all night. Definitely will be back and recommending to friends. Try the tandoori chicken burger spring rolls and the naan me!!
