It can be difficult to stand out when you’re surrounded by others offering something very similar indeed but Muhib Restaurant manages to do just that - making itself a must try on the restaurant heavy Brick Lane in East London. Like many other restaurants on this infamous street, Muhib Restaurant has its roots in Bangladesh, specifically the northern region close to Assam. But although Muhib’s menu might have began in Bangladesh, it certainly doesn’t end there. In fact, the comprehensive selection ranges from excellent biryanis to masalas and beyond, taking in the best of flavours from the Subcontinent. Clean and classically decorated, Muhib’s dining room is comfortable and unfussy, painted in yellow and cream and featuring simple furnishings. Service meanwhile is efficient and polite, the staff knowledgeable about the menu and happy to make recommendations. Booking in advance is essential, especially at weekends as Muhib is extremely popular both with locals.

Great Indian food on the infamous Brick Lane. I found Muhib primarily on Yelp, which was incredibly helpful because of the overwhelming nature of Brick Lane: curry hustlers, flashing lights, an onslaught of aromas. Which to choose?

The food was great but hugely let down by the lack of response from the staff. Having to ask multiple times for water, drinks, cutlery & finally the bill soured...more
Whenever I am visiting London I aleays enjoy a good meal at a local Indian food restaurant. Today at the suggestion of a friend our group headed to Brick lane. The haggling that goes on the streets at just about every restaurant is silly but it was agrred that we would try this restaurant. I am glad we did.
Our drink order was taken and we ordered simosa, butter chicken and their house...more
Really delicious Indian meal. All the standard dishes available, plus a few we do not seen often. We had lamb hydrabadi and jeeera chicken (cumin seeds). The taste was rich and deep. Not especially hot from a spice perspective. Served in a sizzling iron dish added to its appeal. Even the vegetables were worthy of comment. Really tasty.
Cost for two was £30 for food.
My first 5 Star Indian - unfortunately it's not in gods county of manchester . But on the famous Brick Lane in London!
So good I had to return the following night as I couldn't get over the quality ! Using a taste card ( upto six people I think ) you get 50% on the full food menu apart from fri and Saturday. And yes I know some of you are thinking I don't like Indian or curry or even spicy...more
