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.

A friend and I decided to come in here on a Friday night when looking for a curry house on brick lane. Although we were a little torn between trying out one of the neighboring restaurants that were offering free wine and champagne, we decided to go with yelp recommendations, and we were glad we did. Muhib was pretty packed but they were able to sit us right away. The house red and white wine...more
Excellent food. We don't eat Indian food much so we ordered a smattering of items that looked interesting and none dissapointed. Well worth a visit if you are from out of town looking to eat something other than English food, which gets old quickly.more

Interior (as most places on Brick Lane) is faux upscale. Cheesy in a polyester kind of way, but cheap and cheerful nonetheless. We went with the chicken tikka...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.
