Brick Lane


Comment on Cutneys, Brick Lane

My husband and I ate in Chutneys on 11/11/07 and have never been treated with such hostility and disdain - the waiter slammed the drinks down on the table so hard they spilled in the tablecloth. We were bitterly disappointed, and wonder if all the restaurants on this street are as bad ? The food was hardly warm, but the disgraceful service was more memorable.

you have mentioned the leather trade and the restaurants of brick lane(east London).But in the music section you haven't mentioned Joi,Asian Dub Foundation or State Of Bengal, they are the inventors of fusion and the British Asian music industry

Comment on Brick Lane

In your piece on Brick Lane you said that the immigrants were mostly well-to-do. Having lived in the area I must most strongly disagree. The vast majority of the immigrants living in the tenements where I was born were bloody poor and became sweated labourers.

This gives me insight into what my grandfather went through as he was Jewish and from Eastern Europe. Very interesting information when I never met him and consequently have no information about his life.

Comment on Brick Lane

This famous East London street has a rich and colourful history. It symbolises London's inclusiveness and dynamism, and is the best place in the capital to get a curry.
