I don't know why Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani restaurants are better in London than in New York City, but they definitely are. We sort of randomly selected Bengal Village after walking around the Brick Lane area for a while. Hawkers from nearly every restaurant on Brick Lane approach you with a sales pitch (20% off, free drink, don't pay if you don't like it, etc.) but all the pitches are essentially the same. But all the restaurants are not the same. Bengal Village was very good. I guess we finally settled here because they displayed several recommendation stickers in their window (from TripAdvisor, among others), so we figured they must be pretty good. And Bengal Village definitely was. I can't recommend any particular dish because we ordered a lot of them and shared, and it was very enjoyable. I'd go back. In fact, we returned to Brick Lane another night and went elsewhere and had a pretty lousy meal, so I wish we had gone back to Bengal Village.
