Visited on 6th September whilst on a mini break to London. I can honestly say this is the best Indian restaurant I've visited for 25 years. Food was superb, service excellent and cleanliness was spot on. Would not hesitate to return or recommend.
I had checked out restaurants on Brick Lane in advance and this had received top scores, plus it was right next to the hotel I was staying in. I went in very late after a football match but I was promptly greater, sat down, and...provided with drinks. It's hard to match the expectations I had built up from reading some of the reviews, but this was simply one of the best Indian curry experiences I have ever had. The food is unpretentious, the menu choice diverse (I'm a veggie) and in general just great. The staff were superb and enjoyed a chat. I can't remember the name of the waiter I had (apologies) but we enjoyed a good laugh as a ballsy gentleman on another table had encountered an aggressive chilli. I can't recommend this place enough, I made time for it (even at a late hour, in order to get the Brick Lane experience, before heading back to Manchester) and now I am already planning to make time for it again when I'm back in the smoke. Exceptional, thanks all.More
Went to the local pub to ask for a recommendation (and a pint of course) and was told to come here.
Wasn’t disappointed and really enjoyed the food.
Recently I’ve not bothered with rice, and have found a Naan bread and curry enough, and that...was the case here. Garlic naan was hot, fresh, doughy in the middle and crisp on the outside and smothered in garlic. Could have enjoyed it as a meal on its own.
Had tandoori chicken masala that was just the right heat and plenty of sauce for dipping into. My wife did have rice and a house special curry. What I tasted of both were just as good and probably a bit more complex flavour and ingredients.
We didn’t push the boat out but did have a couple of drinks and the whole thing came to well under £50 for two great curries and a few sides ( we did have the compulsory popadoms and pickles).
Can’t compare with the other options on Brick Lane but really enjoyed this and the staff were friendly and helpful too.More
A really warm welcome awaits you at the monsoon. The curries were all delicious and each had a completely unique flavour. We were really impressed by the range of vegetarian meals available. Their naan bread were amazing.
Four of us had a very enjoyable curry. We had booked in advance and were pleased when we arrived that Monsoon was pretty full (many places were empty). Lots of good meat , fish and veg menu choices, everything arrived well cooked, loved the Dahl,...service was really good.More
The Monsoon is undoubtedly the best curry restaurant on Brick Lane. Great food. I tend to stick to what I know – I am especially partial to The Monsoon's onion bhajis, tandoori chicken and saag aloo – but more recently have tried a number of...other dishes, mainly the chicken or lamb curries as recommended by the staff. Absolutely delicious every time. Great service too. Highly recommended.More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs. Wedged
between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.

I don't review a lot but I reviewed them because not only was it a really fabulous indian restaurant but because it's surrounded by tons of other indian restaurants on Brick Lane, so I feel like they would really benefit from my review as it's hard to differentiate themselves. Yes, they said "Please review us on trip advisor" but that's not uncommon these days. In all honesty, I live in London, I eat Indian all the time, but the meal I had there was my hands-down favourite.
