In the title compound, C14H11BrN2O4, the amide segment makes dihedral angles of 23.4 (2) and 20.5 (2)° with the benzene rings, while the dihedral angle between the bezene rings is 2.90 (8)°. The nitro and meth­oxy groups are almost coplanar with their bound benzene ring, with the r.m.s. deviation for the 11 non-H atoms being 0.0265 (1) Å. An intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond generates an S(6) ring motif. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into [2-10] chains by weak C—H⋯O and C—H⋯Br inter­actions, which form an R22(8) motif between pairs of mol­ecules in the chain. A Br⋯O [3.2018 (12) Å] short contact also occurs.
