    Brick Lane - a mecca for curry houses. As you make your way from one end to the other, there is no shortage of smiling faces grabbing your attention with promises of the best deal, the best curry, family owned restaurants, authentic dishes and more. It is hard to make the call for the right one. I normally go for the ones requiring the least sales effort and with bums on seats, as there is nothing more off putting than an empty restaurant.

    Enter tastecard London which has its fair share of Indian partners offering either 2 for 1 or 50% off food on this famous curry street. Having scanned through the tastecard reviews and our old friend Tripadvsior, the Standard Balti House stood out for our weekend lunch.

    There are a couple of things which are appealing about this place. Firstly, the welcome, with friendly guys who do not give you that dreaded look when you say the word "tastecard". All are welcome with open arms and that is certainly a bonus. The interior, whilst still ethnic, the style is quite contemporary and muted, without the garish colours and prints which can normally frequent such establishments. An international crowd made up of couples, lone diners and what appeared to be adult students from an international school also filled out the spot.

    Where the menu is concerned, I have my favourites and I tend not to stray. This is bad, as I should experiment now and then. That is why it is good to have a dining partner, as they can bring the newbie dishes to the table for reviews such as these. All your favourite dishes are on the menu, 5 to 8 different blends of cooking sauces with either prawn, chicken, veg or lamb.

    Our starters were shared poppadoms with the usual dips of mint sauce, mango chutney, seasoned onions and chilli.

    For the main feature, I opted for my old favourite, chicken rogan josh, which was served slightly different here. Normally it is with large stewed tomatoes, but this had smaller cherry tomatoes. Luckily this did not impact the taste I am used to. I had a side of "ladies fingers" which is okra chopped finely, fried with curry spices and onions. We shared a pilau rice and cheese nan bread. My companion had chicken vindaloo which hello, is one of the spiciest dishes on the menu. I feared for him, but he said this was his thing, he likes spice. There was a slight blush in his face, but he enjoyed it. I of course had to give it a little try, so I cautiously dipped my nan bread in the sauce. Nope, full on spicy food is not my thing.

    I love this place. It has a combination of comfort, attentiveness, friendliness, familiarity and of course, good food. I will venture here again and yes, I will try a different dish because I felt comfortable enough at the Standard Balti House to do so.
    We enjoyed 50% off food with tastecard, available every day - but do call if you can to make a reservation. "

    Excellent experience all round. Not too busy, not too quiet. Polite staff. Fast service but not rushing you out the door. Starters were nice and the curries were fantastic and nicely presented!

    Seriously was the BEST restaurant I've been to with my tastecard. Food was absolutely scrumptious, and I'm a very picky person, adding, removing and replacing stuff in my dishes, not only were they happy to do it all, but not one mistake. The service was amazing, extremely welcoming and helpful. BEAUTIFUL "

    This has been my Brick Lane curry house of choice for approx. 15 years. Not as cheap as it used to be but I always use my Tastecard which means 50% off food. They've recently had a refurbishment so it's now even nicer, with quite swanky toilets as well? "

We ordered quiet a number of dishes to share, chicken tikka,korma, madras, mushroom rice, garlic mushrooms to name a few...every dish was better than the other and soooo fresh, sampled draught beer and the atmosphere was really relaxed with excellent service....will definately be back " "

    Have visited this restaurant 3 times over the last year and every visit has been perfect. Book table over the phone with mention of tastecard - very easy and smooth. Restaurant always has your table ready and never makes you wait. Atmosphere is very relaxing, personal and intimate. One section near bar is more lively and sociable, if that is what you are looking for. Tables available for 2 up to large groups of 10/20. Always go for the Prawn Puree - it is amazing!! Butter Chicken chef will cook it up for you, slightly sweet but it is lovely. Highly recommend this restaurant. " "

    We visited this Indian Restaurant yesterday evening at 7.30pm. By 8.30pm it was full and they were turning people away! I cannot praise it highly enough. The surroundings were pleasant, staff extremely helpful and the food probably the best Indian food I have eaten. You can use your tastecard on a Friday evening here unlike many neighbouring establishments. For £15 a head (with tastecard) we had 2 courses and a Cobra each - amazing considering I had a crab aur puree starter and my husband a fish amritsari and after that we had lamb tikka balti (delicious) and Tandoori king prawn masala with a huge amount of king prawns.

    Hi all I don't tend to write reviews but I really think I should.

    I read a few reviews and just didn't know if to take a gamble as the meal was for my American Family on a short visit.

    I rang in the day time to book a table with my tastecard and they were happy to assist including answering all my questions regarding drinks and being able to pay by card.

    When we arrived we was not harassed like many other restaurants along the stretch. We were shown to our table and helped with any questions we needed answering. As the people I was eating with could not make up their minds the waiters were very patient.

    Starters turned up well presented and tasted very nice.
    Dinner could of done with a bit more flavour but never the less it was very plesent and enjoyed by all 5 of us.

    Very happy and will return especially using my taste card. :) "

The manager was extremely rude to them and eventually said they can use their tastecard but the two guys left due to his attitude. The food arrived and tasted good at the time but both of us were ill that night! We will not be going back. "

    After reading some rather concerning reviews, I checked the Food Standards website and they now have reassuring 3*s.

    The food was good for a Brick Lane curry house. I am unsure why people had complained about portion size or quality of service as both seemed to be fine.

    You know Brick Lane curries aren't always the best - however this was perfectly fine.

    I would happily go back to this restaurant. "

  • Bee said: "Never going back here again!
    We went out as a family last night, there were 18 of us. We’d never go for a curry on Brick Lane, as past experience has taught us time and time again, they are ALL pretty dire!
    So after some research via Google, tastecard, Trip Advisor (Certificate of Excellence 2013 – seriously???!! How’d you decide that???), and word of mouth from friends, we thought to try the Standard Balti House.

    Our original reservation was for half 7 in the evening, and they agreed to change to an hour later, due to time it was taking the family travelling into east London from different locations.

    First impressions, the restaurant is decorated quite nicely, perhaps newly re furbished. It’s quite large and goes further back than it looks from outside.

    After being seated, it became apparent almost immediately that our waiter was a less than patient man, and seemed almost pained to be serving us. Not a great first impression on customer service!

    His facial expression and body language gave away a lot! He didn’t really make us feel welcome, and more like a burden. I mean why work as a waiter and then be selective on how you treat customers depending on party size or who knows what else his reason was?! I think they should have had 2 waiters for a party our size. Yes we were a bit loud (not in a bad way- just a lot of laughing!), and there was a bit of getting up and down to swap seats so we could chat to each other and catch up, they went behind us as there was still plenty of room!

    The food wasn’t really that great, I’m really not sure what all the accolade is really about?! Portion sizes were really small, and not worth the prices stated in the menu (that’s why I’m glad we went using the 50% tastecard offer). We ordered a variety of Starters to share. Honestly couldn’t tell the different between the chicken tikka and tandoori chicken it looked the same, a few small, really, really dry pieces of chicken on a plate with limp serving of salad! Lamb also didn’t look that appetising.

    Moving onto mains, the curry potions were again small. More sauce and onions that bulked up to hide the lack of meat. Flavours were just bland for the vegetarians and also the meat eaters. The best part of the meal was probably the naan!

    To sum up, as it’d be easy to list all the many Cons and hardly any Pro’s!
    Food: Awful! If you want decent Indian food near Brick Lane, head toward Whitechapel and New Tayaabs, the stupidly long queues to eat there is all the recommendation you’ll need! Or go towards Harrow, Wembley, Edgware, Stanmore (NW London) for proper curry! Or I’ll make you a really good one!
    Service: Needs massive improvement!!! I think it depends who you are to deserve good service there. Plus there were a couple snide comments from the waiters….
    Value: Only worth the 50% off you’d get with a tastecard as full menu prices are a BIG joke!
    Atmosphere: Looks really nice inside, however my family are happy, and genuinely nice bunch or people so we made our own good atmosphere if you know what I mean!

    Last time we’ll ever eat so called “Indian” food on Brick Lane! "

    Wow.. what a find. Fresh, tasty food which is hard to find on Brick Lane. Probably the best Indian food I have tasted in London. Super easy to use tastecard and that was on a Saturday night - brilliant value for money. The chicken balti is to die for!! "

  • Mateusz said: "STB best curry house
    Brick Lane - a mecca for curry houses. As you make your way from one end to the other, there is no shortage of smiling faces grabbing your attention with promises of the best deal, the best curry, family owned restaurants, authentic dishes and more. It is hard to make the call for the right one. I normally go for the ones requiring the least sales effort and with bums on seats, as there is nothing more off putting than an empty restaurant.

    Enter tastecard London which has its fair share of Indian partners offering either 2 for 1 or 50% off food on this famous curry street. Having scanned through the tastecard reviews and our old friend Tripadvsior, the Standard Balti House stood out for our weekend lunch.

    There are a couple of things which are appealing about this place. Firstly, the welcome, with friendly guys who do not give you that dreaded look when you say the word "tastecard". All are welcome with open arms and that is certainly a bonus. The interior, whilst still ethnic, the style is quite contemporary and muted, without the garish colours and prints which can normally frequent such establishments. An international crowd made up of couples, lone diners and what appeared to be adult students from an international school also filled out the spot.

    Where the menu is concerned, I have my favourites and I tend not to stray. This is bad, as I should experiment now and then. That is why it is good to have a dining partner, as they can bring the newbie dishes to the table for reviews such as these. All your favourite dishes are on the menu, 5 to 8 different blends of cooking sauces with either prawn, chicken, veg or lamb.

    Our starters were shared poppadoms with the usual dips of mint sauce, mango chutney, seasoned onions and chilli.

    For the main feature, I opted for my old favourite, chicken rogan josh, which was served slightly different here. Normally it is with large stewed tomatoes, but this had smaller cherry tomatoes. Luckily this did not impact the taste I am used to. I had a side of "ladies fingers" which is okra chopped finely, fried with curry spices and onions. We shared a pilau rice and cheese nan bread. My companion had chicken vindaloo which hello, is one of the spiciest dishes on the menu. I feared for him, but he said this was his thing, he likes spice. There was a slight blush in his face, but he enjoyed it. I of course had to give it a little try, so I cautiously dipped my nan bread in the sauce. Nope, full on spicy food is not my thing.

    I love this place. It has a combination of comfort, attentiveness, friendliness, familiarity and of course, good food. I will venture here again and yes, I will try a different dish because I felt comfortable enough at the Standard Balti House to do so.
    We enjoyed 50% off food with tastecard, available every day - but do call if you can to make a reservation. "

    Excellent experience all round. Not too busy, not too quiet. Polite staff. Fast service but not rushing you out the door. Starters were nice and the curries were fantastic and nicely presented! The Lamb Rogan Josh in particularly was lovely. No hassle with the tastecard and all reasonably priced. I'm sure I will come again. "
