    Avoid all Indian on this street! The closest decent one at lunch is mama Thai near spitalfields or the Clifton on whitechapel. If you can handle a longer walk go to tayyabs or the Lahore kabob house.

    If you like Indian, this road has a buffet! You could probably have an entire menu eaten, just by ordering one thing from each curry garden you pass. THERE ARE THAT MANY! Seriously, almost literally.

    Curry house capital of Europe, very good bars (1001 or Big Chill in particular) and an authentic East London atmosphere. Brick Lane has so much to offer and is definitely worth a visit!

    This road was used as the route for transporting bricks after the Great Fire of London in 1666, hence the name. It now boasts the greatest concentration of curry houses in Britain.

    Foodwise there are other options apart from so-so curry. Try Chez Elle for great french cuisine or the little mexican place opposite Rosa's.

    There's something for everyone on Bricklane. Head north for lively, young night life or south for more local curry houses.

    Come by on the weekends and find yourself in a place where young people over-dress to impress. Extremely entertaining experience!

    Absolutely wonderful grafitti along this road. Curry houses offer decent food but are an utter tourist trap in any other way.

    This area reminds me of a mini, clean Mumbai! Certainly beats Oak Tree road in New Jersey! Go here to spice things up a bit!
