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.

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
They are really nice on the street til they get you in the door eh?
This was actually a "yelp find".
The veggie dishes were good. The service was ok---
The chicken tikka masala and chicken korma I ordered were so sickeningly sweet I couldn't eat more than bite or two.
There was nothing wrong with the meat it was just terrible sugary and that is not how I like my food---regardless of...more
I am already a big fan of Balti/British Indian food, but this place is great. I have tried 2 other places on Brick lane and this one is my favourite! Authentic delicious food, friendly service and good value for money.
Tip: Haggle with the guy at the door for free drinks or discounts on your meal!more
Not being Indian, but having had great Indian food on past visits to London, found this place through Yelp.
Loved the food, service and atmosphere.
A couple at an adjacent table told me that they live in the area and , although sides of Brick Lane are lined with Indian restaurants, they always choose Muhib, as "it's the best in this area of London".more
A great little Indian place on Curry Lane. Not as obtrusive as many of the places, even though they do have a barker out front trying to get folks in to dine, but so does every other place on Curry Lane. Attractive china from Churchill's. Decor is silk tulips and old prints, but it's ok. Comfortable seating. Music can be a little annoying, but you go there for their outstanding food....more
